Remote phosphor module delivers 203 lm/W
Intematix and Philips Lumileds collaboration delivers remote phosphor LED lighting module with 203 lumens per watt efficacy
Intematix Corporation, a manufacturer of phosphor solutions and Philips Lumileds, an LED supplier has announced a remote phosphor-based LED lighting module with 203 lumens per watt efficacy. It is believed that this module represents the highest level of efficacy among LED-based light sources commercially available for production in the market today.
"This result is a significant step along our innovation roadmap for phosphor solutions," said Yi-Qun Li, Chief Technology Officer at Intematix. "Remote phosphor architectures lower cost, increase efficacy and improve light quality in many of the consumer, commercial, industrial and outdoor area lighting applications commonly deploying LED technology today."
The LED lighting module uses a commercially available, 26mm diameter dome shaped remote phosphor developed by Intematix that converts blue light to on-the-black-body-line 6000K daylight spectrum and 70CRI with conversion efficacy of 267 lumens per radiant watt. The design is applicable for round and linear module configurations and is offered in color temperatures ranging from 2700K to 6000K with CRI values from 70 up to 98.
This ground-breaking lighting module uses Philips Lumileds LUXEON T/TX family of royal blue LEDs, achieving industry leading wall plug efficiencies of 76%.
"We're very proud of this landmark performance of 203 lm/W as this was achieved using our latest commercially available LED technology and Intematix's remote phosphor," said Jy Bhardwaj, Senior Vice President of R&D at Philips Lumileds. "This marquee performance simplifies a wide variety of thermally constrained applications such as 100W A19 bulbs and high lumen candle lamps, and enables downlights with the highest efficacy in the industry."
Remote phosphor solutions are notable for delivering high quality, uniform light and omni-directional light distribution to applications like replacement lamps, high bay industrial illumination and linear applications like commercial lighting. By increasing efficacy, remote phosphor reduces material and operating costs.
