The LHF series

Share this on social media:

Smart Vision Lights has introduced the LHF series of LED linear lights for the direct replacement of fluorescent lighting.

The LHF series comes with an internal driver capable of both continuous and strobed operation. The devices 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.

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 metres long. The housing has a T-slot built in to assist with installation.

Each array uses 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 series directly mounts the high-current LEDs on an aluminium circuit board connected to an aluminium housing to dissipate heat. 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 the LHF series will run at 50°C in an ambient temperature of 25°C, overcoming ambient temperature limitations common to standard fluorescent lights.
