What is a light engine?


A light engine is the LED equivalent of a conventional lamp. It normally consists of the LED chip mounted on a circuit board which has electrical and mechanical fixings. I.e. the light engine is ready to be fixed in the luminaire. Note that it need not have one chip; it may be an array of 9 or 16, sometimes with a phosphor coating.
