Lumileds launches LUXEON 5050 HE LED
LED maker Lumileds LLC of San Jose, CA, USA, the “innovator of the original 5050 LED”, says that it has expanded its range of options to meet manufacturers’ needs for differentiated solutions addressing cost, efficacy and power. Directly addresses the increasing demand for solar and off-grid solutions, renewable power options and improved sustainability metrics, the new LUXEON 5050 HE LED expands options along the efficacy–output continuum, giving luminaire manufacturers the ability to better target performance to their customers’ requirements.
“Driving ever higher efficacy levels supports sustainability objectives and it reduces payback cycles,” says product line manager Mei Yi. “The new LUXEON 5050 HE delivers 181 lumens per watt or more and allows for BOM [bill of materials] cost reduction while maintaining the robustness and longevity expected from an LUXEON LED.”
The LUXEON 5050 HE delivers Lumileds’ flux maintenance and color stability in high-sulphur environments, and its footprint compatibility makes it easy to design into existing and new platforms, says the firm. The new LED is suitable for outdoor, industrial and horticulture applications where robustness, longevity and efficacy are the driving attributes, it adds.
LUXEON 5050 HE is immediately available in 2700–6500K correlated color temperatures (CCTs) at 70CRI (color rendering index). It is characterized for both illumination and horticulture with lumen and efficacy ratings as well as photosynthetic photon flux, PPF (μmol/s), and PPF/W (µmol/J).
All LUXEON 5050 LEDs are available for immediate sampling. Production orders are available now through Lumileds’ distribution network and lead times are up to 8 weeks.
