Samsung and others are developing light engines to mate with this same interface that provides a generous thermal interface.

"Over the next several months, companies from the US, Asia and Europe will be introducing light engines compatible with the same interface as the TDLM," explained Ben Swedberg, Business Unit Manager for IDEAL. "Since this light engine installs with a simple twist, light engine replacement is much easier than with custom engineered LED systems and the LED-Lok holder is the perfect complement to help OEMs leverage this exciting new technology to grow their businesses."

IDEAL is an active member of the Zhaga Consortium that develops high performing, standardised LED formats. The group is moving quickly to prevent fragmentation into a large number of incompatible LED lamps. Zhaga is an open consortium made up of lighting, lamp and component manufacturers working to define the physical dimensions, as well as the photometric, electrical and thermal interfaces of LED lamps.
