Continuing to roll out CoB LEDs with ever higher efficacy and flux combinations, Lumileds has introduced the next-gen LUXEON CoB Core range. With the Gen 2 products, the range now delivers an average of 10% higher efficacy and 10% higher flux with a lower voltage and the same footprint, making it especially attractive to lighting designers.
For example, designers who implemented the LUXEON CoB 1208, which has a light-emitting surface of 15mm, are upgrading lumen output from 3,600 to 4,000lm with a 10% higher efficiency. Alternatively, if the same output is maintained, efficacy can be boosted from 115 to 140lm/W with the Gen 2 LEDs.
Lumileds is offering the LUXEON CoB Core range (Gen 2) LEDs in multiple lumen packages from less than 1,000lm for MR16 and PAR lamps, up to 7,600lm for 100W CDM replacements. Colour options include the popular 2,200K for a candlelight ambiance and very efficient 90 CRI parts for high quality of light.
For ease of upgrade, the LUXEON CoB Core range (Gen 2) products are fully compatible with Lumileds first generation of CoBs. The company’s ecosystem of compatible drivers, optics and holders help speed the time-to-market of all directional lamps.
