Nichia Launches Tuneable 2-in-1 LED


Mid power, white LED enables luminaire manufacturers to improve colour tuning, shrink optics and fixture profiles

Japanese LED firm Nichia has announced a 2-in-1 tuneable white LED. This is believed to be the industry's first tuneable white LED in a mid-power 3030 package with a single light emitting surface (LES).

Nichia's proprietary 2-in-1 LED technology also allows for higher colour quality, in some cases up to ~90 CRI, in the popular CCT regions as standard; achieved with a negligible loss of performance vs. standard CRI LEDs. This technology allows customers and the industry to focus on the benefits of the light instead of just energy savings, which already far surpass that of traditional technologies, says Nichia.

Shinichi (Steve) Yuasa, director, executive general manager of LED sales and marketing at Nichia Corporation, said: “Nichia is again about to deliver a new standard in LED technology. This technology isn't a concept or prototype; this is a ground-breaking, game-changing reality which marks a significant advancement for luminaire manufacturers and the industry. Our 2-in-1 tuneable white LED is well placed to become a benchmark LED technology for the majority of luminaires to employ, with the scope to more easily enable HCL designs in the future.”

Nichia says its 2-in-1 LED allows for elegant colour tuning and mixing because everything is under a single LES; this can be seen easily in edge-lit solutions. Currently, luminaire manufacturers must use two LEDs in side-by-side to achieve colour tuning. This can create unwanted optical distributions and visual effects while also limiting the lumen output that can be achieved in a single luminaire.
