Luminus launches high-CRI CBT-90 white LEDs enabling conversion of HID lighting

In Hall 4.2, Stand G02 at the Light + Building 2012 exhibition in Frankfurt, Germany (15-20 April), Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which manufactures PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for illumination applications, has announced that its CBT-90 white LED is now available with a guaranteed minimum CRI (color rendering index) of 90 and typical CRI of 93. It also has a typical R9 value of 85, enhancing the rendering of deeply saturated reds.

“Physicians can now accurately render deep red colors of tissue and blood during endoscopic surgery,” says global director of product marketing Chuck DeMilo. “Entertainment lighting fixtures will make flesh tones look warmer and more vibrant during theatrical productions,” he adds. “Retail display lighting designers emphasize high CRI, as it makes merchandise look more attractive and increases sales.”

Luminus recently increased the lumen output of the CBT-90 by 25%. The product is fully qualified at input currents up to 1.5A/mm2, delivering thousands of lumens with what is claimed to be unparalleled brightness.

Manufactured and sold by Luminus since 2009, the CBT-90 has been designed into volume lighting products by leading companies. Typical applications include medical, automotive, machine vision and entertainment lighting, where Luminus’ ‘Big Chip’ LED technology has displaced traditional lighting technologies including xenon, metal halide and halogen.
