Molex and Leviton announce new partnership

5 May 2009 13.00 BST

(USA) - Molex and Leviton announced that they have entered into a strategic alliance which will align Molex’s Transcend™ Lighting Series of LED products with Leviton’s extensive distribution and sales networks, helping to drive the adoption of LED light source technology to fixture manufacturers on a global scale.

“The Transcend line of easy-to-implement, plug-and-play LED products overcomes many of the existing barriers which have prevented the widespread adoption of this key light source technology by today’s fixture manufacturers." explains Chris Doveala, Vice President of Leviton’s OEM business. "Molex’s superior technology and efficient integration solution overcomes many of these implementation issues, and we are pleased to partner with them on this exciting new venture.”

“Until now, the lighting market lacked self-contained, modular LED products that effectively addressed the needs of today’s fixture manufacturers. Leviton’s long-standing presence in the lighting industry combined with its extensive distribution and sales networks make it the ideal partner for this exciting joint initiative,” said Mike Picini, Vice President of Solid State Lighting, Molex Incorporated.

This new product offering enables fixture manufacturers to concentrate on their designs by allowing the seamless integration of new, high-efficacy, solid state LED technology to convert existing light fixtures in the market or to design in the new fixture production process. These products offered exclusively through Leviton are compact, interchangeable modules that address issues such as precise heat and current management as well as superior illumination. The products are dimmable using Leviton dimmers and can connect to fixtures using Leviton GU24 base sockets.

The first two products in the line were unveiled at this year’s International Lightfair in New York City. They include: the Transcend RM2 which provides efficient LED directional light with various beam intensity and angular distribution, and the Transcend PM3, which provides a diffused optic for ambient or decorative light . Both products are based on the AcricheTM 4W AC LED from Seoul Semiconductor, and can be directly plugged into the AC line voltage without a converter or separate power supply.
