Lumileds’ LUXEON wins Technical Innovation Award

LED maker Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA says that its LUXEON A (launched in April) has received the Technical Innovation Award at this week’s Lightfair International event (LFI 2011) in Philadelphia, PA, USA (17–19 May).

The award is given to the product that represents the best leap forward in lighting technology. The firm's third and most recent product to be released this year incorporates two breakthroughs: hot testing and ‘Freedom From Binning’.

Lumileds says that LUXEON A provides consistent quality of light from LED to LED. Hot testing and specification at a junction temperature of 85°C ensures the LEDs real-world operating conditions performance and simplifies the design process. Freedom From Binning eliminates color bins (typically a burden on luminaire manufacturers). All LUXEON A emitters fall within a single 3-step MacAdam Ellipse at 2700K and 3000K and deliver what is claimed to be superior quality of light with previously unachievable color consistency from unit to unit.

Lumileds has also previously won the Technical Innovation Award with its LUXEON Rebel and LUXEON Rebel ES LEDs.
