CYPRESS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Seoul Semiconductor, a leading LED manufacturer, announced two of its Acrich2 AC-powered LED modules are recognized under the Component Recognition Program of UL. The modules, which operate directly from AC line voltages, contain newly developed high-voltage LEDs that utilize Seoul Semiconductor’s patented Acrich technology and a capacitor-free power-conditioning integrated circuit. The recent UL recognition will help customers using the Acrich2 to more easily obtain UL listing of their replacement lamps and luminaries. The products also have the cUL Recognition Mark for Canada.
The modules were investigated using the requirements contained in the Standard for Light Emitting Diode (LED) Equipment for Use in Lighting Products, UL 8750, First Edition, dated November 01, 2011. The two modules, 8W, SMJEA3011220, which produces 500 lm minimum and the 13W, SMJEA3012220 which produces 800 lm minimum at a 120Vrms operating voltage, are designed for replacement lamps and other similar applications.
“The Acrich2 modules permit quick time to market for our customers making luminaries and replacement lamps. UL recognition speeds the certification process and helps eliminate some of the potential listing delays,” says Brian Wilcox, vice-president of Seoul Semiconductor, North America.
The company has recently made several product announcements regarding individual devices in the Acrich2 family. The products are available to customers through Seoul Semiconductor’s direct sales force and distributors.
