Lumileds launches LUXEON K arrays for retrofit and downlight LED lighting

LED maker Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has launched the LUXEON K, an illumination-grade array for downlights and retrofit bulbs that, it is claimed, allows solutions to come to market more quickly and at a price that will drive market adoption.

LUXEON K arrays provide thousands of lumens of light output (with a typical flux of 620-4455 lumens at a drive current of 700mA). They will be available in early secord-quarter 2012 in three different correlated color temperatures (CCTs) of 2700K, 3000K of 4000K, with a typical color rendering index (CRI) of 85 (and a guaranteed minimum of 80) and with five configurations of 4-24 emitters per array. Luminous efficacy is more than 100 lumens/Watt at 350mA, a junction temperature of Tj 85°C, and a CCT of 3000K.

“LUXEON K extends our portfolio of illumination-grade LEDs engineered to optimize end-user satisfaction of specific applications,” says Rahul Bammi, VP marketing. “For downlights and retrofit bulbs, LUXEON K provides a unique approach that delivers the highest, most consistent quality of light in an easy-to-implement array,” he claims. “Our hot testing and specification at 85°C, and freedom from color, flux and Vf binning, makes LUXEON K the simplest of LEDs to specify and use,” he adds.

The new LUXEON LED is being shown in booth 619 at the Strategies in Light 2012 event in Santa Clara, CA, USA (7-9 February).
