Farnell, the leading multi-channel distributor of electronic and industrial components, has announced that it has been selected as a distributor for Helieon Sustainable Light Modules from a partnership formed by Molex and Bridgelux. The announcement strengthens Farnell’s already significant solid state lighting portfolio and underlines its focus and technical expertise in what is an important and rapid growth market sector.
The Helieon lighting system is the first plug-and-play, sustainable solid state lighting module to integrate high efficiency precision lighting with an easy-to-use socketed solution. The new, highly cost-effective products, help accelerate innovation and encourage the mass adoption of solid state lighting in preference to established, poor efficiency approaches by simplifying the process of designing, building, replacing and upgrading luminaires.
Under the new agreement, Farnell will offer a comprehensive range of Helieon products that are carefully tailored to match the light output levels of traditional light sources. Modules are available with output specifications ranging from 500 to 1,500 lumens and with a choice of narrow, medium and wide flood beam spread options. By visiting the element14 website, designers can also quickly and easily identify and order a range of complimentary products including electronic drives, heat sinks and optics to support the design of new solid state lighting systems and luminaires.
“The Premier Farnell new product introduction process is a proven vehicle to launch Molex products including the new Helieon Light Module,” said Fred Bell, Vice President, Global Distribution, Molex. “Our long-term partnership with Premier Farnell continues to deliver outstanding service and support to Molex customers worldwide.”
“We have been proud to partner with Premier Farnell for nearly two years, since the initial launch of our LED Array product line,” said David Barnby, Bridgelux vice president of worldwide sales. “Now with the addition of the Helieon LED module to their global distribution channel we look forward to better serving our solid state lighting customers.”
