Luminus releases Salud COB LEDs

Luminus Devices Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA – which designs and makes LEDs and solid-state technology (SST) light sources for illumination markets – has expanded its human-centric lighting portfolio by introducing the Salud COBs. These chip-on-board (COB) LEDs have high R9 values, high melanopic/photopic ratios, and minimum color rendering index (CRI) of 90 in warm correlated color temperatures (CCTs) that enable users to meet WELL Building requirements. In addition, the LEDs are said to possess exceptionally long color stability, excellent optical emission uniformity, as well as color-over-angle consistency, and superior thermal conductivity for uniform heat spreading. The Salud COBs are suitable for directional lighting applications, complementing the existing line of Salud mid-power products and Salud CCT tunable modules.

As many public spaces have opened back up with health and wellness as a key consideration, the Salud technology that is incorporated into these COBs enables building and lighting designers to meet the WELL Building requirements for high melanopic lux in the vertical plane without having to over-light the environment and without having to use cool, blueish CCTs like 6500K. Salud technology is said to help to create a healthy, productive and comfortable environment that is suitable for offices, schools, factories, shops and public spaces. With typical R9 values in the 90s, Salud technology has especially high red color rendering to produce vibrant red tones, as well as healthy skin tones, and therefore an increased ability to more accurately diagnose medical conditions including sepsis and cyanosis.

“As our industry learns more about the importance of healthy lighting, our Salud line has been recognized as the ideal option to deliver high melanopic lux in warm CCTs and 90 CRI quality of light,” says David Davito, COB product line director, Illumination, at Luminus. “The new Salud COBs are the perfect complement to our Salud mid-power line to enable customers the ability to offer a full suite of directional, linear and panel lighting options.”
