Comprehensive SSL system eases lighting design

Tyco Electronics (TE) introduces a new Solid State Lighting (SSL) solution – the NEVALO SSL system – designed to accelerate lighting manufacturers’ transition from traditional light sources to new LED lighting fixtures. This comprehensive system combines the many new components and disciplines of SSL systems into one simple solution that provides application flexibility and exceptional product performance, according to company sources. In addition, the offering provides lighting fixture manufacturers with a five-year system warranty.

The NEVALO system includes more than 60 LED Light Modules (LLMs) options, ranging from 300 to 3,400 lumens, in form factors for popular lighting applications; optics in total internal reflection and reflector styles; drivers with constant current output, dimming-control capabilities and temperature monitoring; and a new ribbon-based, four-wire configuration wiring system that is physically keyed and color coded for polarity, accurate power connections, and ease of manufacturing. Other components included in the system are heat sinks matched to the LLMs to help provide appropriate thermal management and life expectancy, and circuit protection devices.

Additional design and budgeting tools are incorporated into the NEVALO SSL system to help lighting manufacturers bring their products to market faster while gaining significant cost savings. These tools include a thermal test instrument to help designers instantly test a system’s thermal performance and an SSL system budget calculator to help mix and match NEVALO drivers and LLMs. The NEVALO product configurator – a web-based tool that aids designers in specifying a system and producing a bill of material and drawing – is also included in the package with a full system and cable assembly configurator to facilitate rapid system design.

To assist in lighting fixture designs, TE offers NEVALO product development kits for down lights, wall sconces, and track lights. System development kits, samples, component pricing, and additional information are available at
