Lumileds` Emitters Offer Best Beam Candle Power

Delivering over 50 lumens per square millimetre, Philips Lumileds’ new offering enables faster design of luminaires with on-board connector, NTC, and 1000 to 8000 lumen output
Philips Lumileds has introduced LUXEON S, its second generation illumination-grade multichip emitters.

The company says they offer twice the lumen density of existing solutions - an R9 value that exceeds 80 and has 50 percent better Colour over Angle variation over existing solutions.

Designed for retail, architectural and entertainment applications, LUXEON S emitters deliver up to 50 lumens per square millimetre and a high light output of up to 8000 lumens in narrow beams with sharp shadows.



The LUXEON S1000, S2000, S3000 and S5000 emitters simplify the design of compact spotlights and downlights for architectural, retail and entertainment lighting solutions

Because of the challenges in creating a small footprint with tight beam angles and high lumen density, luminaire designers have had to deal with large optics and limited lumen levels. With LUXEON S, luminaire designers have more flexibility and can achieve beam angles in the 8 degree range in a compact design, with light levels that rival traditional CDM light sources.

The firm claims this flexibility enables never-before-possible Centre Beam Candle Power of over 50,000 candela, compared to other LEDs, like Chip on Board solutions, with a larger Light-Emitting Surface that achieve less than 20,000-25,000 candela.

“With a lumen density that is twice that of available solutions, the LUXEON S can offer light outputs as high as 8000 lumens at half of the optical size, enabling LED approaches to replace traditional ceramic discharge metal-halide (CDM) lamps in spotlight and architectural applications," says Orson Lo, director of LUXEON S products for Philips Lumileds. “Relative to CDM lamps, LUXEON S-based lamps offer comparable efficacy of 90 lm/W but with instant-on operation, better colour consistency and four times the expected lifetime at 60,000 hours."

The new emitters feature correlated colour temperatures of 2700K and 3000K with a CRI of 80 or 90, as well as CCTs of 3500K, 4000K and 5000K at CRI of 80. In the 90 CRI products, R9 value exceeds 80, making them ideal for applications requiring exceptional colour renderings such as in premium retail and museum applications.

Philips Lumileds is demonstrating the new LUXEON S emitters this week at Strategies in Light, February 12th to 14th in Santa Clara, California at booth #205.

 



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
