L+B: Bridgelux makes sealed light engines for outdoor lighting

Bridgelux OLMBridgelux has developed a water-resistant light engine for luminaire makers that don’t want to have to think about weatherproofing.

Designed for LED luminaires that replace high-pressure sodium lamps, and called OLM (outdoor lighting module), they come in a whole range of colour temperatures, beam patterns, and CRIs.

So luminaire makers do not have to worry about output creeping up as LEDs get better, Bridgelux says it will keep producing versions with the same output as the initial products (as well as presumably brighter versions). Drive current will be the same, but forard voltage will fall so OEMs can pass on lm/W gains.

There is a lot more information in an OLM story on the Electronics Weekly news site.
