FUTURE LIGHTING SOLUTIONS LAUNCHES LIGHTING SYSTEM CREATOR (LSC) VERSION 1.2

Montreal, QC – August 9, 2017 – Future Lighting Solutions, the world-class leader and innovator in demand creation, marketing and distribution of solid-state lighting technologies, announces significant advances in selecting a suitable driver in a solid state lighting system via the release of version 1.2 of the Lighting System Creator (LSC). The LSC design tool is available free of charge to engineers and customers worldwide.

These new enhancements enable the user to quickly evaluate the tradeoffs of a single Class 1 LED driver versus multiple Class 2 LED drivers in a luminaire design. Users now have the ability to match a selected light source to a specific driver manufacturer to increase the system warranty period when available. The LSC also supports setting of the board-to-board series or parallel interconnection priority for generating LED driver solutions.

“Design Engineers continuously face design constraints when developing next generation luminaires,” said Patrick Durand, Worldwide Technical Director at Future Lighting Solutions.  “The Lighting System Creator 1.2 provides the required flexibility to define both optimized and practical system level solutions,” added Durand.
