Lumileds launches LUXEON H LED for space-constrained bulbs 

LED maker Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has launched its LUXEON H next-generation high-voltage LED. With significant performance enhancements, LUXEON H enables a broad range of retrofit bulbs and space-constrained applications (such as GU10 and candelabra bulbs) while providing the light output, efficacy, and quality of light required to meet ENERGY STAR specifications.

The LUXEON H has correlated color temperatures (CCT) of 2700K and 3000K, with a minimum color rendering index of 80. Each part is hot tested and specified at a junction temperature (Tj) of 85°C, and delivers ‘Freedom From Binning’ (with no flux bins and no Vf bins; single 3-step MacAdam Ellipse color space and color over angle specified at a low 0.02 du’v).

Typical luminous efficacy is 90lm/W at 40mA, 100V, and Tj = 85°C. Typical flux is 320–660 lumens at 20–90mA and 100V or 200V. The 100V/200V package rated for 4–8W.

“For the first time there is a practical solution for GU10 and other small-form-factor bulbs,” says Rahul Bammi, VP marketing. “Compared to other high-voltage or AC LEDs, LUXEON H delivers more light, better light, and better efficacy in a more cost-effective package with proven LUXEON reliability,” he claims.

Compact and dimmable drivers are already available and LUXEON H is being designed into bulbs as a single LED solution that offers advantages over the multi-source designs previously required, it is claimed. The ease of solderless assembly reduces fixture manufacturing costs. Complementary components including drivers, optics and clamps will be available through Future Lighting Solutions. High-volume release of LUXEON H will be in March.

The new LUXEON H LED is being exhibited at Philips Lumileds’ booth #619 at Strategies in Light 2012 in Santa Clara, CA, USA (7–9 February).
