SEOUL, South Korea, Mar 20, 2014 (Korea Bizwire) – Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced component  solutions and LED component technology, said today that it has begun  mass producing a value-added line-up of highly efficient lens-attached  LED modules (LAMs), for use in office LED lighting applications that  include linear and line lighting, cove lighting and troffers.

“With its LAM series, Samsung is rolling out leading-edge concepts in  LED lighting design to the mass market and will continue to do so later  this year and beyond,” said Bangwon Oh, senior vice president of  strategic marketing team, LED Business, Samsung Electronics. “As LED’s  penetration in the lighting industry increases, it is clear that  enabling slimmer fixtures is an important area of market  differentiation, an area where Samsung LAMs deliver the most efficient,  homogeneous design solutions in LED lighting today.”

Samsung’s LAM series embraces a state-of-the-art concept in LED modules.  The LAM solutions are created by attaching lenses on top of the LED  packages in each module. The lenses add wide beam angles for their light  sources using advanced optic technology, so that each LED package can  brighten a space larger than that of conventional packages.

The new LAM series makes use of technology from Samsung LED packages for  flat-TV backlight units (BLUs). In 2012, when LEDs became popular in  BLUs for LCD TVs, Samsung created LED BLU modules combining lenses with  LED packages to increase overall light output.

Using a Samsung LAM solution adds more design flexibility for a wide  range of luminaires. Unlike fluorescent and incandescent lamps,  conventional LED lighting features individual LED packages, each of  which emits light. As a result, depending on the distance between the  diffusion plate and the LED modules in the fixture, the spaces between  packages on the module can appear as dark spots. To prevent this, the  diffusion plate has to be placed further away from the module, which  unfortunately increases the thickness of the fixture.

With the new Samsung LAM series using diffusion-improving optic  technology, the diffusion plate can be placed much closer to the module  – as close as 35 millimeters, a significantly smaller space than the 80  to 100 millimeters needed for conventional T5/T8 fluorescent tubes.

Samsung will showcase its new LAM series at the upcoming Light and  Building trade fair being held in Frankfurt, Germany, March 31 – April  4, along with a wide variety of other LED component solutions.
