Lumileds extends LUXEON Rebel ES LED to 300lm output and 125lm/W efficacy to meet outdoor lighting standards

LED maker Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has announced advances in its LUXEON Rebel ES product line that, it is claimed, enable new outdoor lighting solutions to deliver higher efficacy and more light output, shortening payback periods, lowering the total cost of ownership, and enabling LED systems to meet new efficiency standards being implemented around the world.

At 1000mA, the new LUXEON Rebel ES delivers more than 300 lumens and efficacy of 100 lumens per Watt. When optimizing for system efficiency, current can be lowered and efficacy can exceed 125lm/W at 350mA. Either way or in combination, applications can be more easily designed to meet emerging outdoor lighting standards system cost targets, and cost of ownership requirements, Lumileds reckons.

“We continue to listen to our customers and broaden our LUXEON portfolio in order to help them achieve their lighting solution objectives,” says Steve Barlow, executive VP of sales & marketing. “System efficiency and costs are significant drivers of LED solution adoption. LUXEON Rebel ES directly addresses these factors,” he adds.

LUXEON Rebel ES is optimized for outdoor applications, including streets, roadways, tunnels, and high- and low-bay lighting, with correlated color temperatures (CCTs) centered at 4100K and 5650K. The combination of light output levels, efficacy and color temperature enable higher-performance lighting systems that meet end-market needs, it is claimed.

Options include optimizing for light output (reducing the number of emitters required and potentially reducing upfront costs); optimizing for efficacy (which lowers operating expenses through energy savings); or designing for variable operation (based on the amount of light required at a particular time of day, or at a particular location).
