Lumileds expands Matrix Platform with high-efficacy LUXEON XR-TX LED module for outdoor applications

LED maker Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has launched the LUXEON XR-TX module, incorporating 12 LUXEON TX high-efficacy LEDs to produce 3300 lumens and 140lm/W at nominal drive conditions (current of 700mA, 85°C board temperature, and 4000K/80CRI color; boards can be driven at up to 1.05A).

In a convenient rigid form factor, the modules are designed to be readily combined with third-party lens plates and drivers to rapidly design and bring to market LED streetlights, tunnel lights and high/low-bay fixtures. "Our Matrix Platform products eliminate the sourcing of LEDs, components and connectors, and drastically reduce the design efforts behind luminaire development," says Matrix Platform product manager Andrew Cohen.

An advantage to lighting manufacturers lies in the assembly process developed and used by Lumileds, the firm claims. "Using our proprietary pick-and-place system, customers can be assured of very tight control of flux, forward voltage and color specifications at the board level, compared to designing with individual LEDs, where accounting for variability is a greater challenge," notes Cohen.

The LUXEON XR-TX modules are available in a variety of correlated color temperatures (CCTs) suitable for streetlight and high/low-bay applications: 4000K, 5000K and 5700K with a minimum color rendering index (CRI) of 70. Each module features a metal-core PCB for what is claimed to be best-in-class thermal conduction, screw holes for ease of mounting to heat sinks, and convenient poke-in connectors for electrical inputs. Multiple LUXEON XR-TX modules (up to seven) may be daisy chained to achieve an assortment of system configurations and necessary flux levels.

The new module is part of the Lumileds Matrix Platform of infinitely configurable LED boards, linear flex and modules featuring LUXEON LEDs. The Matrix Platform comes in both off-the-shelf and built-to-spec options, offering a range of solutions for any application.
