LED Luminaries

LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.

Ledil and Ideal go for Cree CXA35

Ledil Angela Ideal CXA35Cree CXA35 arrays can now be mated to Ledil Angela and Angelina reflectors, thanks to a clip-in Chip-Lok connector/holder from Ideal.

“Ideal can offer a complete system that connects the reflector to the Cree array to deliver the most efficient electrical, mechanical, thermal, and optical qualities,” said Ideal.

Chip-Lok Array Holders are Zhaga sized and mounted, and made from stainless steel to eliminate plastic creep.

A flange on the outer edge provides a thermal path to the heatsink and offers structural strength.

They are available for arrays from manufacturers including Cree, Lumileds, Citizen, Nichia and Seoul.

The two Ledil reflectors are also Zhaga-compliant, and already compatible with adapters from TE Connectivity and BJB, amongest others.

Angela is 120mm in diameter and 75mm high. Typical beam angles are around +/-6 (spot), +/-10 (medium), or +/-18° (wide), depending on the LED type.

Angelina is 85mm in diameter and 31mm high. Typical beam angles are around +/-8, +/-14, or +/-22°.

Both have a working temperature range of -40°C to +100°C, and are typically 93% efficient.

“The smaller Angelina displays beam characteristics typical for downlights and general lighting,” said Ledil.
