Lumileds boosts lumens per watt by 27 percent

Designed for small socket applications, the firm's new LUXEON H50-2 enables new form factors and slashes lighting costs
Philips Lumileds has unveiled the LUXEON H50-2 LED, one of the industry's highest performing high-voltage LEDs.

With a typical efficacy of more than 80 lumens per watt, the LUXEON H50-2 LED improves on the efficacy of the existing LUXEON H 50V LED by 27 percent.


What's more, it offers 10 percent more lumens per watt and 30 percent higher luminous flux than other competitive products, as well as lumen maintenance that exceeds rigorous ENERGYSTAR requirements. Designed for space constrained, retrofit bulbs such as the A19, the compact LUXEON H50-2 has a high voltage architecture that enables more form factors and lowers costs through the use of cost-efficient drivers.

Unlike other high voltage LED products, every LUXEON H50-2 LED is hot tested at 850C to guarantee performance at operating conditions, and is colour binned into three and five SDCM to ensure consistency among LED packages.

In addition to A-line retrofits, the LUXEON H50-2 can drive down the costs of other space-constrained lamps such as candelabra and GU10 lamps. For specialty applications such as undercabinet, track and poultry lighting, LUXEON H50-2 has a smaller form factor that allows for even more streamlined solutions.

"We continually work with our customers to help them address the challenges they are facing in their market through the introduction of innovative new LED packages such as the LUXEON H50-2," says Viji Krishnamurthy, Product Manager at Philips Lumileds. "This new LED package works with simple, highly efficient drivers, enabling lighting designers to create unique form factors at lower costs, while still offering LUXEON performance and quality."

LUXEON H50-2 LEDs are available now from Future Lighting Solutions.
