Continuing to roll out chip-on-board (CoB) LEDs with ever higher efficacy and flux combinations, Lumileds has introduced the next generation LUXEON CoB Core Range. With the Gen 2 products, LUXEON CoB Core Range now delivers an average of 10 percent higher efficacy and 10 percent higher flux with a lower voltage and the same footprint, making it attractive to lighting designers.
“We are seeing tremendous demand in the retail and hospitality markets, where our award-winning* CrispWhite Technology really shines. These applications require not just the best quality of light, but the cost effectiveness that goes with an LED solution with up to 150 lm/W efficacy,” said Eric Senders, LUXEON CoB Product Family director.
For example, designers who implemented the LUXEON CoB 1208, which has a light-emitting surface (LES) of 15 mm, are upgrading lumen output from 3,600 to 4,000 lumens with a 10 percent higher efficiency. Alternatively, if the same output is maintained, efficacy can be boosted from 115 lm/W to 140 lm/W with the Gen 2 LEDs.
Lumileds is offering the LUXEON CoB Core Range (Gen 2) LEDs in multiple lumen packages from less than 1,000 lumens for MR16 and PAR lamps, up to 7,600 lumens for 100W CDM replacements. Color 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.
