Lumileds launches its second generation LUXEON CoB Compact Range LEDs, which feature an efficacy and output boost of up to 16% over its previous generation arrays. The new product line reinforces Lumileds leading position in chip on board technology by enabling the most cost effective solid state PAR, GU-10 and MR-16 lamps for retail, hospitality and home lighting applications.
Due to the common Light Emitting Surface (LES) of 6.5mm across the LUXEON CoB Compact Range Gen 2 LEDs, different power range directional lamps such as a 35W-equivalent and a 50W-equivalent MR-16 lamp can use the same optic, minimising design and system cost. The upgraded arrays also achieve unsurpassed center beam candlepower (CBCP) or 'punch'. At 1,500lm, the LUXEON CoB 209 reaches 76,000 candelas at a 10° beam angle.
“Customers currently using first generation LUXEON CoB Compact Range are also particularly excited about this upgrade because they can replace a Gen 1 Compact Range 109 with a Gen 2 Compact Range 205 to attain the same performance at a significantly lower cost, or they can replace a Gen 1 Compact Range 105 with a Gen 2 Compact Range 205 and boost output by 16% in efficacy,” said Ivan Tsoi, Product Manager for LUXEON CoB Compact Range at Lumileds. The performance boost, combined with the industry’s lowest thermal resistance, leads to smaller heat sinks and more cost efficient lamps.
The LUXEON CoB Compact Range LEDs are offered in the industry’s widest range of color temperatures (2200K to 5700K) and CRIs (80 and 90). The range is also available with Lumileds award-winning CrispWhite Technology designed for to be used in fashion retail lighting to reveal the richest whites, most vibrant reds and to make all colours pop. 100% of LUXEON CoB Compact Range arrays are hot tested at 85°C to ensure performance in real world operating conditions and to minimise additional testing.
