Lumileds brings some sparkle to lighting
The new LUXEON H makes it possible to develop cost effective, compact LED bulb solutions for space constrained bulbs like GU10s and candelabra bulbs
Philips Lumileds is launching its next generation high-voltage LED, LUXEON H.
LUXEON H LED
With significant performance enhancements, LUXEON H enables the broadest range of retrofit bulbs and space constrained applications while providing the light output, efficacy, and quality of light required to meet ENERGY STAR specifications.
With a CCT of 2700K and 3000K with minimum 80 CRI, the LUXEON H has Freedom From Binning and a single 3-step MacAdam Ellipse colour space. With no flux bins and no Vf bins, the colour over angle is specified at a low 0.02 du’v. The device is hot tested and has a typical efficacy of 90 lm/W at 40 mA, 100V at Tj of 85°C.
The 100V / 200V package is rated for 4W – 8W. The typical flux is 320 – 660 lumens at 20 – 90 mA and 100V or 200V.
“LUXEON H is a major advancement that delivers unsurpassed quality of light in a package that’s easy to implement,” says Rahul Bammi, VP Marketing at Philips Lumileds. For the first time there is a practical solution for GU10 and other small form factor bulbs. Compared to other high-voltage or AC LEDs, LUXEON H delivers more light, better light, and better efficacy in a more cost effective package with proven LUXEON reliability.”
Compact and dimmable drivers are already available and LUXEON H is being designed into bulbs as a single LED solution which offers significant advantages over the multi-source designs previously required. The ease of solderless assembly reduces fixture manufacturing costs. Complementary components including drivers, optics, and clamps will be available through Future Lighting Solutions. The high volume release of LUXEON H will be in March.
The new LUXEON LED will be shown at Philips Lumileds booth, #619, at Strategies in Light opening February 7 in Santa Clara, California.
