Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA says that it has considerably improved the flux across its color LED family. Performance improvements to the flagship LUXEON C Color Line include 20% higher lumen output in its LUXEON C Green and Cyan compared with the previous generation. The LUXEON C Red-Orange features a 12% flux increase and the LUXEON C Red an 8% flux increase.
“As the demands on our customer’s fixtures become more challenging, we need to ensure our Color portfolio enables them to meet these demands,” says Jennifer Holland, product line director of the LUXEON C Color Line. “This increase in flux across several key colors will give our customers a significant boost in performance in existing designs as well as allow them to start from a higher level of performance in new designs.”
Specifically engineered for color mixing through its standard focal length, the LUXEON C Color Line is suited to use in architectural, stage lighting, emergency vehicle lighting, and color tunable lamps and fixtures. All LUXEON C Color Line LEDs are hot tested at 85°C to ensure performance at application conditions. Its thermal resistance (claimed to be the lowest in the industry, at 2.8°C/W) also helps to reduce heat-sink cost — or allows LEDs to be driven harder for higher output than is achieved with competing LEDs, it is claimed.
Extending these performance upgrades to other lines within the LUXEON Color LED family, Lumileds is also announcing 20% flux improvements for the Green and Cyan colors in the LUXEON Z Color Line and the LUXEON Rebel Color Line.
