Luminus launches XNOVA Sensus LED series color-targeted COB LED arrays

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for solid-state lighting (SSL) applications, has launched the XNOVA Sensus LED series chip-on-board (COB) LED arrays featuring warm-white light with chromaticity coordinates targeted below the black-body locus (BBL). The XNOVA Sensus LED series features illumination products with targeted color points designed to enhance perception in specific environments such as retail, grocery and hospitality.

Recent studies have demonstrated that people have a preference for warm-white color temperatures slightly below the BBL which they perceive as a pure, crisp, whiter light, while the majority of warm-white LED products are targeted to generate light precisely on the BBL. In addition to providing the appearance of pure white, customers have reported that XNOVA Sensus LED array provide more appealing color renditions of skin tones and greater color saturation. They are also attracted to the similarity between the white point of XNOVA Sensus LED light and traditional metal halide bulbs.

“Our XNOVA Sensus COB LED arrays provide our customers with the highly desirable, below-BBL white light that meets emerging market demands, while still providing color control within the American National Standards Institute 3000K color space,” says Jim Miller, executive VP of sales & marketing. “Sensus goes beyond the traditional definitions of white light used by most LED manufacturers and targets color points that have greater appeal to human emotion and perception of light quality,” he adds.

The XNOVA Sensus LED arrays are available in 2- or 3-step McAdam ellipse color accuracy, which is fully inscribed below the BBL and within the ANSI 3000K color space. In addition, they are tested at 85°C, where they deliver 120 lumens/Watt typical and 80 CRI (color rendering index) minimum. Light-emitting diameters are available in seven sizes from 6.3mm to 22mm, enabling users to achieve a typical flux output from 470 lumens to over 7500 lumens.

Luminus is showing the XNOVA Sensus COB LED array in booth 6237 at Lightfair International (LFI 2014) in Las Vegas (3-5 June) and in Hall 11.2 B26 at the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition in China (9-12 June).
