Lumileds boosts LUXEON 2835 Color Line performance
Lumileds LLC of San Jose, CA, USA has introduced a boost in luminous flux to its LUXEON 2835 Color Line LEDs.
Featuring 11 colors and three white correlated color temperatures (CCTs), the LUXEON 2835 Color Line now delivers a 25% brighter red-orange and 6% brighter red, which are especially key to the performance of emergency vehicle lights and color-tunable lamps. “Emergency vehicle lamps typically combine red-orange, blue, PC amber and white,” notes product marketing manager LP Liew. “The dramatic increase in flux of red-orange will boost the performance of these designs,” he adds. “Additionally, lamp and fixture designers now have even higher-performing and cost-effective options.”
Like the high-power LUXEON C, CZ and Z Color lines, the LUXEON 2835 colors range from far red to royal blue and includes PC lime, mint and amber colors to achieve what is claimed to be the greatest number of color points in LED lighting. Flux of the red-orange LUXEON 2835 LED is 25lm when driven at a current of 120mA and reaches 38lm at 200mA (claimed to be the highest in the industry). Color mixing in lamps, emergency vehicle and architectural fixtures benefits from the widest color selection.
Lumileds says that its Color LED portfolio has flawless color mixing due to the equal focal length on every LED, which eases integration with secondary optics. To further speed the design and manufacturing of new lamps, the LUXEON 2835 Color Line features identical polarity on every color, simplifying PCB design.
