Luminus’ LEDs power Philips’ Selecon’s FOCUS display light

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes LED solid-state light sources for illumination applications, says that Philips’ Selecon FOCUS LED display light is being powered by a single CBM-380 color-mixing chip-on-board PhlatLight (Photonic Lattice) LED, capable of delivering 3500 lumens, as a practical and cost-effective alternative to LED arrays. The FOCUS LED particularly suits applications such as display lighting for museums and art galleries, says Luminus, because it does not generate ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) light and will protect priceless pieces of artwork.

“Selecon’s use of the Luminus CBM-380 demonstrates that PhlatLight LED technology brings unique advantages for color quality, tuning and uniformity to demanding entertainment and architectural lighting applications,” claims Luminus’ president and CEO Keith T.S. Ward.

“Luminus’ big-chip LEDs are ideal for entertainment and architectural lighting applications used inside fixtures in museum lighting and other environments,” comments Steve Carson, CEO of Philips Entertainment. “Our design teams utilize PhlatLight LEDs because costly lamp replacement isn’t needed and the color rendering is superior in both daylight and conventional lighting environments.”
