Offering a more affordable LED option for directional lamp manufacturers requiring single-source beam control, the LUXEON 5258 has been released by Philips Lumileds. The initial LEDs released in the 5258 plastic package are in warm white CCTs with a minimum CRI of 80. A 5mm diameter optical source enables precise beam control in directional applications.
This multi-die emitter enables cost effective design of PAR 16, PAR 20, MR16 and GU10 lamps using existing drivers at 24 and 96V. The 24V solutions provide 425lm at 110lm/W, while the 96V solutions provide 400lm at 105 lm/W (both can be driven to deliver up to 650lm).
Ahmed Eweida, Product Manager, Philips Lumileds, comments: “We are providing a high flux, high efficacy LED that improves the quality of light and avoids the unfortunate 'showerhead effect' that users experience with distributed, multi-die solutions. The LUXEON 5258 can achieve lower system costs compared to solutions using multiple LEDs for 35 and 50W MR16 today."
The LUXEON 5258 is designed to provide the best efficacy and flux metrics with superior reliability and droop curve than all competing solutions on the market.
