Bridgelux has received two selections for inclusion in the 2020 Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) Progress Report. The first selection is the groundbreaking new Vesta Flex family of two-channel drivers with interchangeable controls for tunable white lighting systems, and the second selection is the Gen 8 Vero and V Series COBs with market-leading efficacy. 

The Vesta Flex family of specification-grade, NFC programable, tunable white LED drivers and control modules is designed to accelerate the adoption of human-centric lighting. Vesta Flex is compatible with multiple traditional wired, and new wireless lighting control ecosystems, including wired DALI2 and 0-10V controls, and wireless control options from WiZ, WiSilica, Silvair, and Casambi. 

The eighth-generation V Series, Vero Series, and Vero SE Series product families deliver up to 185 lm/W. This market-leading efficacy is benchmarked at the popular 3000K 80 CRI colour point, with efficacies above 200 lm/W possible at other colour points across the industry’s broadest range of COB products. Gen 8 COB products also feature up to 3x overdrive capability, delivering a 30% increase in maximum lumens per LES size to support the continuous trend toward luminaire miniaturization, as well as significant increases in lumens per dollar to further reduce the costs of solid-state lighting. 

Jason Posselt, VP of Global Marketing, Bridgelux said: “It is an honour to have our Vesta Flex and Gen 8 COB products represented in this year’s IES Progress Report. Despite the challenges of the global pandemic, Bridgelux remains focused on developing innovative products and solutions as a committed technology partner for our customers. In addition to the IES Progress Report awards, Vesta Thrive was the winner of a 2020 LightFair Innovation Award, and both Vesta Flex and Thrive were Sapphire Awards finalists at the Strategies In Light conference. These exciting new products will accelerate the development of differentiated market-leading lighting products.”
