Lumileds launches white automotive-rated LUXEON Rebel LEDs

Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has announced the broad release of its white automotive-rated LUXEON Rebel LEDs.

Intended for use in automotive applications such as daytime running lamps, position lamps, backup lamps and interior lighting, the LEDs provide greater design flexibility and are engineered and tested to exceed automotive requirements for reliability, performance, and lifetime. Each part conforms to both the SAE and ECE color specifications and has complete PPAP documentation.

“The auto industry is under continuous pressure to innovate, inspire and develop more sustainable solutions, and vehicle lighting is one of those applications where the latest LUXEON LEDs can positively contribute to how people feel about their cars and how they see others on the road,” says Steve Barlow, executive VP of sales & marketing. “LUXEON Rebel enables new, unique design possibilities because of its small size and high output,” he adds. “The low power consumption contributes to saving millions of litres of fuel. And the rugged package is designed to function for the life of the vehicle, eliminating the need to change bulbs.”

The firm claims that benefits to automotive lighting engineers include:

  • simplified secondary optic design and integration;
  • reduced thermal management engineering; and
  • easier assembly and integration for reduced manufacturing costs.

LUXEON Rebel white LEDs for automotive applications are the most recent addition to a portfolio of products for the automotive industry that includes LUXEON Altilon, SuperFlux and SnapLED.
