Jena, Germany--A five-year development and cooperation agreement in the field of LED industrial lighting has been forged between Jenoptik and LEIDS.

Jena, Germany--A five-year development and cooperation agreement in the field of light-emitting diode (LED) industrial lighting has been forged between Jenoptik's business unit Optoelectronic Systems, manufacturer of optoelectronic systems and polymer optical components, and LED manufacturer LEIDS GmbH & Co. KG. The companies will jointly present LED illumination solutions at the Transport Logistic 2011 tradeshow for the first time.

Jenoptik and LEIDS complement each other in several value added stages for the lighting industry. The cooperation leverages the expertise of LEIDS in the field of LED production, system design, as well as market access to the industry, and the competencies of the business unit Optoelectronic Systems of Jenoptik´s Optical Systems division in the field of development and production of high-performance optics.

The cooperation aims at the common development and production of components, modules, and highly efficient LED illumination systems for industrial applications such as warehouse or workplace lighting. Decisive factors for market success of LED illumination solutions will be efficiency increases of the LED light source, improved electronics and heat dissipation, as well as cost reduction by implementing industrial and flexible processes. The special focus of future developments will be on the advancement of lighting performance of the LED lamps.

Integrating high-performance optics into industrial lamps helps to generate light distribution exactly adapted to applications for industrial customers and to produce a higher light intensity in total. Using these optics produced with mass replication techniques at the same time reduces the number of LEDs needed and achieves cost advantages for final products and their operation. Both factors will play an important role for the future development of the market.

The business unit Optoelectronic Systems belongs to the Jenoptik Optical Systems division and is specialist for producing polymer optics and has essential competencies in all important stages of the value-added chain, from development to design and prototyping through series production of optomechanical and optoelectronic components and systems.

LEIDS GmbH & Co. KG is a subsidiary of the Taiwanese LED manufacturer ALDER Optomechanical Corp., founded in 2002. Due to the predictable market development, a European brand for designing and marketing complete lighting solutions was founded in the middle of 2008.
