Date Announced: 18 May 2011 San Jose, CA –- LUXEON A, announced earlier this year, has moved into volume production and has been submitted for an Innovation Award at Lightfair 2011. This is the second hot tested and specified LUXEON LED from Philips Lumileds this year that also delivers on the promise of Freedom From Binning. Philips Lumileds has committed to deliver illumination grade LEDs to the industry in a concerted effort to simplify and speed development of new lighting solutions and to deliver the highest quality of light for each application. Advanced manufacturing control allows the company to so accurately target a specific correlated color temperature that each LUXEON A LED falls within one 3 step MacAdam ellipse space at actual operating conditions.“Key to increased adoption of LEDs are ease-of-use, and confidence in the quality of light,” said Steve Barlow, Sr. VP of Sales and Marketing. “Lumileds is simplifying and accelerating the design process with hot testing and Freedom From Binning. More importantly, with LUXEON A we are proving that consistent quality of light from LED to LED is something that both the luminaire manufacturer and lighting design community can count on today and into the future.” LUXEON A is featured at the company’s LIGHTFAIR stand in a linear profile intended to demonstrate the consistency and quality of the emitted light. The entire LUXEON portfolio will be presented so that the lighting community can see and touch the latest LED technology that’s being implemented in solutions for homes, offices, shops, and schools.
