Luminus Announces Ultra High Density COBs LEDs

Arrays designed to replace metal halide in retail spot applications

Luminus, a US-based manufacturer of high-performance LEDs, has announced a new family of ultra high density chip on board (COB) arrays designed to replace ceramic metal halide technology commonly used in spot lights for retail lighting.  

The new XH series COBs are available in a variety of standard light emitting surface (LES) diameters including 6, 9, 11, and 14mm, which means that customers can use their existing ecosystems for optics and connectors, while producing new bulbs and fixtures with higher lumen output and increased centre beam candle power(CBCP).  

The 9mm and 11 mm XH series COBs deliver the lumen output and high quality of light to replace 39W and 70W metal halide sources respectively.  With a tiny form factor, the 6mm XH series at 3000K 80CRI generates 1500 lumens, and when combined with a 85mm diameter optic, throws an 8 degree beam with CBCP of over 30,000 Cd. 

David Davito, product marketing director at Luminus, notes: "The high lumen density of our XH series is enabling our customers to replace metal halide by taking advantage of our high quality of light and shaping the beam into narrow spots with high CBCP while still maintaining small form factors in their bulb and luminaire designs.  This results in more attractive retail displays where spot lights with more 'punch' will draw the consumers' eyes to targeted garments and merchandise, while also reducing energy bills, of course."

The XH series is available in a wide range of popular CCT and CRI combinations, including the 95 CRI minimum AccuWhite( and below black body Sensus options, which Luminus launched last year.  The XH series is 100 percent specified and tested at 85degC to guarantee hot performance in the application.

 Luminus will be exhibiting the XH series and other new illumination light sources at LightFair International in New York City this week from May 5 - May 7.



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.
