SAN JOSE, Ca. - OptoElectronix, a leading LED light engine manufacturer, today announced a five-year (or 35,000-hour, whichever comes first) warranty on their complete line of LED Universal Light Engine™ products. These light engines provide full plug-and-play functionality, making it simple for designers to incorporate solid-state lighting into a wide variety of existing and new luminaires. OptoElectronix Universal Light Engines include the LED, a thermal network, optics, the electronic driving system for the LEDs, and a range of control functions. The warranty is effective as of August 1, 2009.

Quality and reliability are key features of every LED light engine that OptoElectronix designs and manufactures. LEDs are inherently durable and long-lasting components. However, achieving the LED's long lifetime performance requires careful design and testing of the electronic power and control systems and the thermal network. The extensive characterization and reliability testing that OptoElectronix incorporates into every product is the result of its extensive experience in LED and semiconductor technology product development and manufacturing.
