Molex and Bridgelux Launch Next Gen Light Module
High-brightness sustainable light module.
Lisle, IL — Molex Inc. and Bridgelux have introduced the Helieon® 120VAC Sustainable Light Module, a next-generation modular solid-state lighting solution that connects directly to 120VAC line voltage input.

Eliminating the need for external drivers not only dramatically simplifies the design-in process, but also enables more efficient and consistent lighting performance. The Helieon 120VAC module is TRIAC-dimmable down to less than 5 percent and is compatible with a wide range of commercially available dimmers, enabling it to easily interface with many typical electrical installations.

In addition to adding the electronic driver functionality, the available product options for the module will be expanded with the introduction of a 2000 operational lumen option and the addition of a 120° viewing angle option to complement the 24, 32 and 50° options currently available.

The initial product launch includes 1200 and 2000 lumen performance options in 3000K CCT with 32 and 120° viewing angle options. Additional color temperature and viewing angle options will be introduced in the coming months.

According to the company, the Helieon 120VAC solution fully integrates the electronics into the module, reducing the variability found from the various driver manufacturers and providing light fixture manufacturers with a simplified design that offers all the benefits and flexibility of its predecessor, the award-winning Helieon module.

In addition, due to the integration of the driver and power conversion circuitry, the design is completely future-proof as any future improvement in LED technology can be accounted for in the driver.

Combining solid-state lighting technology from Bridgelux and engage-and-turn interconnect technology from Molex, the Helieon Sustainable Light Module simplifies the process of designing, building, replacing and upgrading luminaires for many lighting applications.
