Acrich LED streetlights are successfully installed in the city of Yangzhou, a special district for industry in China demonstrated superiority of Acrich product globally.

Acrich LED streetlights

Seoul Semiconductor(SSC), a global LED manufacturer (, has announced the completion of Acrich LED streetlight covering a section of 30km on Yang-zi River Road in Yangzhou city.

The main reason why Acrich LED is chosen for this LED streetlight project out of other global companies is that it has its advantages in cost and performance. Minimizing payback period of three years can be achieved by having lower cost of installation and maintenance. Acrich streetlight is also brighter and lighter than conventional DC LED streetlight.

Acrich 2 module is composed of MJT 4040 packages which use Multi Junction Technology and Acrich IC. Acrich IC can replace AC/DC converter which weight close to 4kg and also essential for conventional DC LED module. As a result, Acrich 2 module enables lighting manufacturers to save time and cost in designing the luminaries as well as raising power factor up to .99 and accomplishing 100lm/W in luminous efficiency.

From durability standpoint, not only this product will allow lifespan of up to 50,000 hours by not having converters which are responsible for curtailment of life and malfunction. It will also utilize existing streetlight pole as it only needs to change the light source and keeps other parts due to its lightness.

Jae-bin Choi, the head of lighting division of Seoul Semiconductor stated that “Acrich LED, which has mostly been used for the indoor lighting, gains traction in the outdoor market as a lighting source of the streetlights. Having China's recognition of Acrich LED on long life span as well as high output and efficiency, other cities are ,in turn, looking into Acrich LED streetlights tunnel illumination on their street”. He also stressed that “the company will lead global outdoor lighting market with Acrich 2 which is considered next generation of LED module and optimized for outdoor lighting”.
