With LEDs we are becoming a technical system supplier

The LED portfolio for luminaire manufacturers is being expanded


Tridonic is expanding its LED product portfolio for general illumination applications and is now presenting itself as a supplier of light sources. Tridonic is therefore placing greater emphasis on systems – in addition to its successful component business – and can offer its customers everything from individual components to complete systems.

Digital light sources have now been added to the existing portfolio of electronic ballasts and lighting control components for professional illumination tasks. Tridonic is a versatile supplier that can offer its customers the right components, from operating devices and LED light sources to light engines.

Tridonic's is enabling its customers to enter into producing LED luminaires and lighting solutions at different stages in the value added chain. Tridonic offers packages ranging from individual components to modules, from converters to complete systems including lighting control. "With the wide range of options that our LED product portfolio offers, our clear strategy is to supply our customers with individual products and with product systems so they can manufacture LED products that meet the highest standards. As before, Tridonic itself will not be offering luminaires or lighting solutions and therefore will not be in competition with luminaire manufacturers", said Walter Ziegler, CEO of Tridonic.

The aim is to take up a strong market position right from the start as a supplier in the LED segment for professional lighting. As a leading player in the field of electronic ballasts and LEDs, Tridonic already holds more than 2000 patents. This strong IP position has been systematically enhanced and expanded in recent years. In addition to access to all the relevant phosphor patents, the cross-licensing agreement with Philips from 2009 is an important factor. Cooperation with the Korean company LG Innotek has delivered another partner for high-performance, cost-effective LED technology.
