Mouser continues partnership with Plessey to add beam forming module

Distributor, Mouser Electronics is distributing Plessey’s Orion beam forming module, the PLWS3000 series.

The Plessey Orion PLWS3000 series module offers size and performance breakthroughs for LED lighting modules, says the company, giving architectural and industrial lighting designers a new level of design freedom. By integrating the LED and optics, the Orion module delivers over 3000lumens from a unit that is just 5.6mm thick, and 82mm in diameter. 

The Orion module uses Plessey’s Stellar beam forming technology to achieve a powerful and directional beam. Other features cited by the distributor are improved light uniformity and what is describes as excellent thermal performance.

The Orion family encompasses a range of beam angles from 15 to 60 degrees, from modules as little as 5.6mm in depth. These modules are available to purchase through the Mouser Electronics Plessey microsite.

The Orion module was named a top-10 product at LuxLive, and has won the Sapphire Award for Modular LED Light Engine (LEDs Magazine) at the Strategies in Light and The LED Show 2017.

According to Keith Strickland, Plessey’s chief technology officer: “By integrating the LED module with the optics, Plessey has delivered the next phase in LED lighting with low cost, high efficiency and greater control of light. We believe that Orion modules will transform the design of retail, industrial, hospitality and outdoor lighting. The improved thermal characteristics allows the heatsink to be reduced in size enabling further size reductions in the end fixture.”

The PLW7070 range has been designed using Plessey’s integrated multi-junction die architecture for a diverse range of high power applications in high bay, floodlighting, street lighting, spot lighting and down-lighting, in addition to portable torches and lamps. The move to mid-power products to save cost can be reversed, the company believes, as it can provide solutions where the overall fixture costs are up to 50 per cent lower.

Plessey provides components and solutions across the whole of the lighting value chain. Lighting system designers and specifiers can access its design, build and supply chain expertise from blue die through packaged LEDs and modules to complete luminaires and fixtures. Mouser will ensure lighting designers and customers can easily access the Orion family of LED modules globally.
