Smart Vision Lights Introduces LHF Series LED Replacement for Fluorescent Industrial, Machine Vision, and Architectural Lighting Applications

Muskegon, Mich., Jan. 16, 2014 — Smart Vision Lights — a leader in the design and manufacture of LED lights with internal current-control drivers for precision industrial, machine vision, and architectural applications—is pleased to introduce the LHF series of LED linear lights for the direct replacement of fluorescent lights.

Like all Smart Vision Lights, the LHF series of fluorescent replacement lights comes with the industry’s only internal driver capable of both continuous and strobed operation. The LHF series can use either NPN or PNP strobe triggers to control light pulse timing. Internal LED drivers also eliminate the need for additional wiring between the light and external drivers, simplifying installation. Furthermore, the LHF series is based on Smart Vision Lights’ Direct-Connect series of linear lights, which allows the user to snap together up to eight 300mm LHF300 lights for a consistent illumination source up to 2.4 meters long without any additional wiring. A T-slot built into every Direct-Connect LED light housing makes it easy to install and support our LED lights for virtually any application.

Each 24V DC LHF300 array utilizes 30 high-intensity LEDs, and features a diffuse lens cover designed to disperse the light in the same fashion as a fluorescent light of equivalent length.

The LHF series of linear lights is the brightest in the vision industry due to the heat dissipation of the housing, resulting in more consistent light output over a longer lifetime than competing solutions. To dissipate heat, Smart Vision Lights directly mounts high-current LEDs to an aluminum circuit board connected to an aluminum housing. This design efficiently transfers heat away from the high-powered LEDs, allowing users to run the light at a higher current, producing an increased output without reducing expected lifetime. In constant operation, the housing on Smart Vision Lights’ LHF series lights will run at 50°C in an ambient temperature of 25°C, overcoming ambient temperature limitations common to standard fluorescent lights. The LHF series of fluorescent replacements also eliminates mercury waste from fluorescent ballasts as well as fluorescent ballast “buzz.”
