Lumileds Mid-power LEDs For Lighting Raise The Bar
The firm says the guaranteed minimum CRI, specified R9, and leading performance over time bring newfound confidence to solutions with white mid-power LEDs
Philips Lumileds has launched its first white, mid-power LED.
In doing so, the company believes it has raised expectations for mid-power reliability, performance over time and temperature, and colour maintenance.
Intended for office and other distributed LED lighting solutions, Philips Lumileds uniquely specifies CCT, CRI, and R9 for each of its new mid-power emitters.

“The lighting industry’s performance expectations of mid-power LEDs is well below the expectations for power LEDs," says Rahul Bammi, VP Marketing at Philips Lumileds.
“We believe that distributed light solutions like those found in offices should deliver quality of light, colour stability and useable lifetimes similar to what our LUXEON LEDs deliver. Most importantly, lighting designers and technical specifiers should have the confidence that the light source inside will perform as intended. We are certain that the new Lumileds 5630 emitters will outperform other options over their lifetime."
Lumileds has utilised its know-how, including proprietary phosphor technology, to create its first illumination mid-power LED.
“We believe that many of the mid-power solutions being implemented today will see unplanned and unexpected colour shift over time and we think the industry needs better LEDs," concludes Bammi.
Philips Lumileds other mid-power products include SuperFlux, SnapLED and SignalSure LEDs, which are widely used LEDs for automotive exterior lighting.
