Lumileds launches CS range, joining Core and CX ranges of CoB LEDs
Since there are no industry standards for the footprint or board size for chip-on-board (CoB) LEDs, over the years companies that manufacture CoB holders and optics have largely designed their products to support the three board formats that are widely adopted by lighting manufacturers, notes LED product and lighting maker Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA. However, the firm says that, with its introduction of LUXEON CS CoBs, it now offers a full range of LUXEON CoBs in each of the common board footprints.
“OEMs choose to implement LUXEON CoBs for better efficacy, color stability and/or reliability, but they don’t want to have to redesign their system,” says global product manager Noman Rangwala. “Now, with the CS CoB range, it’s easy for lighting manufacturers using many of the common square board configurations to switch to LUXEON.”
The LUXEON CS CoBs incorporate all the advances that Lumileds has implemented and match the performance of the firm’s Core and CX CoBs. The CS range is a general-purpose, high-performance CoB portfolio. The CS Pro CoBs are spectrally tuned for retail lighting where a “brighter and sharper” effect on merchandise is desired. The CS HE delivers even higher levels of efficacy for applications where energy efficiency is the driving characteristic.
The new LUXEON CS range CoBs are available now through Lumileds’ global distribution network.
