Lumileds’ new LUXEON HL2X LED boosts field-usable lumens
Lumileds LLC of San Jose, CA, USA has launched the LUXEON HL2X LED, suitable for roadway lighting and sports lighting fixtures, in an industry-standard package.
“With 318+ lumens at 700mA and 85°C, LUXEON HL2X delivers more ‘field-usable lumens’,” says senior product marketing manager Alvin Yeoh. “Lumileds attention to beam angle, field angle, color over angle and optical efficiency gives engineers more lumens to work with and better quality of light than has been previously possible. The result is an outdoor fixture with leading optical properties and exceptional efficiency,” he claims.
The LUXEON HL2X enables customers to meet the requirements of DLC Premium V5.1, enabling fixture manufacturers to access the best utility rebates while reducing energy consumption, says Lumileds. The low thermal resistivity substrate (<2.6°C/W) shrinks the size of heatsinks and simplifies the thermal design of fixtures. Superior color over angle (<40 pts) ensures high uniformity in the application.
The LUXEON HL2X is available in a standard 3.5mm x 3.5mm (3535) 3-stripe footprint, which is optically compatible with the LUXEON TX LED, enabling a low-touch upgrade.
The LUXEON HL2X is immediately available across a wide range of color temperatures of 2700-6500K and 70CRI (color rendering index); 80CRI and 90CRI options for indoor applications will be introduced in the coming months.
