Component Distributors, Inc. (CDI) provides LED Lighting Development Kits to help engineers shorten their design cycle and accelerate time-to-market with new LED lighting fixtures. CDI works with its vendor partners to identify parts that work well together and to define the exact contents of each kit. The kits generally include a COB, Optics, Driver, Heat Sink, Thermal Material and the connectors, adaptors and screws needed for assembly.
The initial high bay application kits have been developed around standard LED coolers from MechaTronix. The modular design of these high bay LED coolers enables direct mounting of a Citizen COB from 4,000 up to 30,000 lumens on one end and a Mean Well HBG driver from 60 to 240 watts on the other end, all without drilling and tapping.
New high bay development kits are continually being added to increase the variety of light source and optics choices. Future development kits will address other LED lighting applications such as streetlights.
