Luminus SST-50 and SST-90 PhlatLight LEDs adopted for lighting applications

At this week’s Light + Building event in Frankfurt, Germany, Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes LED solid-state light sources for illumination applications, says that its flagship lighting-class LED products — the SST-50 and SST-90 (demonstrated at the show in a retail track lighting fixture) — are the centerpieces of several new indoor and outdoor lighting applications.

“Guth Lighting is leveraging the SST-90 across several fixtures in our product portfolio,” says Bob Catone, general manager of Guth Ligthing, a Philips Brand Company. “LEDs represent the future of lighting and we believe Luminus LEDs will play an important part in defining that future.”

SST-50 and SST-90 LEDs were introduced less than a year ago and have experienced rapid adoption by the lighting user community, says Luminus. The firm’s LEDs have been designed into volume lighting applications including retail and residential track lighting, PAR/MR replacement lamps, high-bay/low-bay commercial and industrial lighting, and outdoor area lighting including roadway and acorn fixtures.

“The emergence of many first-class, world-wide lighting installations using our LED technology provides validation of our basic value proposition,” says Chuck DeMilo, Luminus’ director of global product marketing for Lighting. “Customers recognize that Luminus’ big-chip [PhlatLight photonic lattice] technology allows them to move away from the ubiquitous pixelated look and differentiate their fixture designs with a classical single-source aesthetic,” he adds. “By using fewer sources they can reduce fixture cost and complexity, while enabling a solution with fewer points of failure,” he claims.

The SST-50 and SST-90 are high-lumen-output single-source LEDs, with input power of 5W and 10W, respectively. Both are available in surface-mount packages, have energy efficiencies in excess of 100 lumens/watt, color temperatures of 3000–6500K, and L70 lumen maintenance of 60,000 hours.
