SEOUL, KOREA — Seoul Semiconductor, a global LED manufacturer, today announced its release of AC LED type fluorescent Acrich2 Linear Module. The Acrich2 Linear Module lifetime is twice as long as DC-driven LED and cuts actual power usage by half. Compared with the existing linear module driven by direct current, the main feature difference for Acrich2 Linear Module is the removal of AC/DC converter and the consequent optimized design. As a result, the electrolytic capacitor, which contributes to the reduction of LED light life, is removed from a converter increasing to a light lifetime that is twice as long.

Linear modules driven by direct current have a managed lifetime of about 10,000 to 20,000 hours.  Lighting companies have preferred the ballast compatible system when fluorescents are replaced by LED lamps. The system leaves a ballast, necessary for fluorescent installment, untouched and only replaces LED lamps by introducing separate LED converters. However, this poses a risk of fire and lower energy efficiency.

Notably, the life span of a converter is unable to catch up with the life span of an LED and the system won’t last over 10,000~20,000 hours.As a result of high-level technology, the Acrich2 Linear Module eliminates both a ballast and a converter and thus secures LED fluorescent safety. In fact, the power factor increases to 97% and power efficiency is increased to 90%.

In addition, the Acrich2 Linear Module quenches problems that occur when fluorescents are replaced as the lifetime of LED lamps becomes two times longer. “Let’s plant two trees.” Sunghun Bae, Vice President of Seoul Semiconductor proposed the use of Acrich lamps. His argument is based upon the grounds that the adoption of Acrich2 brings similar effects of planting two trees compared with the use of the LEDS driven by a direct current.

 “Armed with optimized  simplistic system design, the Acrich2 Linear Module is a state-of-the-art product that outperforms existing non-eco friendly fluorescent lamps and direct current LED fluorescent lamps.” Remarked Mr. Bae  He added “With the doubly long life span and lower carbon dioxide emission, customers will be able to actualize eco-friendly lighting while paying lower electricity bills.”  The Acrich2 Linear Module comes in 220V, 120V, 100V variants. Starting this month, samples will be distributed to customers.
