Custom LED Lighting Retrofit Systems

Over the past decade LED lighting has far surpassed the efficiency and life expectancy of traditional sources such as fluorescent, halogen, HID, etc.  With that many customers have looked to upgrade their lighting to LED.  Completely replacing a fixture can be costly, disruptive to operations, or there may not be an identical fixture available in LED.  An alternative to replacement is retrofitting the fixture to take an LED light source.  While many general lighting fixtures have off-the-shelf retrofit kits available for them, there are many architectural, customized or specialized fixtures that do not.  ILT has worked with customers of all types and sizes designing, engineering and manufacturing a custom retrofit solution that meets their performance requirements and their budgets.  Below are just some of the capabilities we bring to customized retrofit solutions:

Custom OEM Solutions

custom engineered solution

ILT has worked with customers of all types and sizes to develop customized lighting solutions where an off-the-shelf solution does not exist.  Lighting for specialized applications such as adding a light strip to a refrigerator shelf or

germicidal lamp to a robotic broom can often be an afterthought in the development process.  But if not  designed and developed properly, these components can cause your end product to look and perform poorly.  ILT has over 50 years of experience developing lighting-based solutions.  We understand the science of beam shaping, light distribution, light intensity and the other intricacies involved in creating light sources for specialized applications.  When you partner with ILT, we take on the task of designing the system, sourcing the components, and managing the supply chain, in order to deliver you a "plug-and-play" solution.  Examples of just some our custom OEM solutions are shown below.


Whether you need a solution for UV, VIS or Infrared light, ILT has the experience and expertise to turn your requirements into solutions.  Below are examples of what we offer our OEM partners:

  • Transition from traditional to LED solution
  • Concept, proof of concept, and design
  • Prototyping
  • Component selection and sourcing
  • Mechanical, optical, electrical and thermal design/validation
  • Certifications (e.g., UL)
  • Manufacturing - ISO 9001:2015 certified


UVA / UVB / UVC Custom Solutions

LEDs are rapidly replacing fluorescent, halogen and other traditional light sources for ultraviolet lighting applications.   UV LEDs open up new possibilities in a multitude of applications for form, fit and function over traditional UV lamp-based light sources. The small form factor, efficiency, narrow spectrum and long life of LEDs allow product developers to design solutions that are more compact, robust, reliable, environmentally friendly and optimized for the application, among other things. But designing around this newer technology poses an equal number of challenges for developers as well.  From selecting the right LED manufacturer, to determining the proper electrical requirements, to board layout and design, partnering with ILT can reduce your development time by taking the guesswork out of process.


UV LEDs are now widely used in applications for germicidal (UVC) for surface, air and water purification; horticultural grow lights (UVB / UVA), medical / phototherapy (UVB / UVA), and UV curing (UVA) applications.  ILT also offers developer kits for each of the three UV.  To read about our kits, or to inquire about purchasing our kits, visit the UV Developer Kit page here.


Below are just some of the things we offer our customers who partner with us to develop their custom UV lighting application:

  • Identifying the right wavelength of light by application
  • LED / component selection
  • Supplier and supply chain management
  • Board layout and design
  • Prototyping
  • Mechanical, optical, electrical and thermal design, testing and validation
  • Certifications (UL)
  • Manufacturing - ISO 9001:2015 certified
