Luminus LEDs power new tactical flashlights
Several flashlight makers have built their products around single LEDs from Luminus.
For example, the JetBeam RRT-3 has a maximum output of 1200 lumens, providing an effective range of 700+ yards.
The flashlights utilize the company’s SST-50 "big-chip" LED, a high-lumen-output, single-chip package. With an input power of 5 watts, the LED has an efficacy in excess of 100 lm/W, color temperatures ranging from 3,000K-6,500K, and L70 lumen maintenance of 60,000 hours.
“Luminus is excited about working with our partners in the tactical flashlight market as SST-50 big-chip LEDs are superior to traditional high intensity discharge lamp solutions being used in today’s reflection systems,” said Keith Ward, president and CEO, Luminus Devices.
