Revised LinearZ LED Modules for Premium Light with Highest Efficiency in Zhaga Standard
We are all aware that our future also depends on how sustainably we manage the earth’s resources. In accordance with the Ecodesign Directive, the lighting industry makes an important contribution to climate protection with environmentally friendly artificial light. For this reason, the entire LinearZ portfolio for use in linear luminaires has now been revised and expanded with new versions.
Further information on the modules can be found in the press release below.

Technical Article on LumProtect® in LED Professional Review #91
In issue #91 of the LED professional Review (LpR), a technical article about our new LumProtect® lamination technology was published. For all those interested, the article is available as a PDF download below.
Maximum efficiency and light quality for sophisticated lighting - New LinearZ modules with TriGain® phosphor technology
The new Ecodesign Directive entails high technical requirements for efficiency. Many existing LED solutions that previously had a good energy efficiency class (EEC) will only receive a classification in the lower range of the scale from A to G according to the new directives. Therefore, we have developed three new LED modules of the LinearZ family, which besides their Zhaga compatibility can also convince with the extremely efficient LEDs of the H6 series by Nichia. Thanks to the patented TriGain® phosphor technology, the LEDs of the Japanese LED world market leader enable excellent colour rendering (min. CRI 90) without compromising the efficiency of the LED modules.
Further information on the modules can be found in the press release.

General illumination and inactivation of bacteria with one module
Due to the long-lasting pandemic, the interest in effective concepts for surface hygiene has increased very strongly. In addition to the already established effect of UVC radiation, the inactivating effect of visible light is now also moving into the focus of studies. In the course of this development, we have created a three-row LED module equipped with the NF2W585AR-P8 LED from world market leader Nichia, which will be launched in January 2021. The spectrum of the LED, which is achieved through a special combination of phosphor and chip technology, is able to provide general illumination on the one hand and ensure the inactivation of bacteria on the other.
Further information on the technology and the module can be found in the press release below.
Multi-level partnership between LUMITRONIX® and LEDIM
We have agreed on an extensive partnership with the Berlin-based technology company LEDIM. From now on, we will distribute LEDIM’s flicker-free dimmers and Dim2Warm LED engines in our wide-ranging online shop www.lumitronix.com as well as in B2B direct sales. In addition, LEDIM products will be produced in our ISO-certified factory in Hechingen in the future.
Further information on the partnership can be found in the press release.
Paul Sparenborg in an interview with OPE Journal
After the very successful technical event “Selective Plasma Metallisation of Flexible Printed Circuit Boards” in September 2020, the international trade magazine for Organic and Printed Electronics – the OPE Journal – asked our Sales Manager Paul Sparenborg for an interview.

Higher-performance UV-C modules from Lumitronix feature Nichia's new NCSU334B UVC LED
Following the successful introduction of the first UVC LED modules in August 2020, we are expanding the existing concept of linear module solutions with three new, more powerful versions. These are as well mainly addressed to professional customers who are trained in handling UV-C radiation and can ensure a risk-free application.
In addition to the special linear UV-C optics Violet from LEDiL, which is used in two module versions, the Baden-Württemberg company relied on the latest UVC LED NCSU334B from Japanese LED manufacturer Nichia in the development of its products. The efficient UV LED emits a wavelength of 280 nm and is characterised by a high optical output of 70 mW at 350 mA.
More information about the modules can be found in the press release.
Lumitronix partners with CHASM for advanced, flexible LED lighting solutions
We have joined the “Preferred Integration Partner” program of the American engineering company CHASM Advanced Materials. Their flexible, transparent base material AgeNT™ serves as a basis for us to advance the development of a new series of lighting solutions.
For more information about the partnership, please read the official CHASM press release.
Lumitronix extends UV portfolio with new UV-C modules for sterilization and decontamination
We have taken advantage of the current situation and within a very short time developed three LED modules with UV-C LEDs that can be used in the fight against viruses, bacteria and germs. The linear module solutions are primarily aimed at professional users who are trained in the use of UV-C radiation and can ensure risk-free use.
When developing the products, we used not only the UV-C LEDs from Seoul Viosys but also the new UV-C optic Violet from the Finnish optics manufacturer LEDiL. The LEDs from Seoul Viosys emit a wavelength of 275 nm and achieve an optical output of 152 mW in combination with the rod lens. In terms of calculation, 99.9% of irradiated viruses, germs and bacteria can thus be killed within a few seconds at a distance of 10 cm.
More information about the modules can be found in the press release.

UV-C technology in the fight against pathogens
With the NCSU334A Nichia has launched one of the most powerful UV-C LEDs on the market, which is available in several versions from LUMITRONIX® as official distributor. Whether as a component for later mounting, premounted on a 30 x 30 mm aluminium board or in a hermetic spot housing with a quartz glass reflector – we offer the right solution for every requirement. This also includes a ready-made concept for a safe use of Nichia’s UV-C technology. More information on this exciting topic can be found in the press release.

We present to you our unique product novelties!
Since Light + Building 2020 had to be postponed due to the corona crisis and we were unable to present our new products “live” to the interested public, we have decided to do so in digital form and introduce to you, among other things, our unique flexible LED modules, which were manufactured on our brand new Flex production line using the reel-to-reel process.
LUMITRONIX® uses paper and PET as circuit board
In cooperation with our technology partners, we have succeeded in equipping plasma-metallized flex boards with electronic components. The basis for this is the worldwide unique process of plasma metallization. This new technique from the field of medical engineering turns many materials into electrically conductive and solderable circuit boards that were previously not suitable for an assembly with electronic components.
