Luxeon S delivers punch, color quality, and freedom from binning in a breakthrough package delivering 1300 hot lumens

Feb. 22, 2011
Date Announced: 22 Feb 2011 New solutions with LUXEON S will soon replace halogen and CDM with better light, longer life, and higher efficacy. LUXEON S making its debut this week stands to change expectations of what’s possible with the latest generation of LUXEON LEDs from Philips Lumileds. Designed with retail spot and down lighting in mind, LUXEON S enables simple, effective, and efficient lighting. Retail lighting is intended to highlight the most important products, make merchandise stand out and shine, and create an environment that entices and comforts shoppers. LUXEON S supports all these objectives and reduces energy consumption and costs. “LUXEON S breaks new ground not just for Lumileds but for the entire LED industry,” said Frank Harder, VP Marketing LUXEON Product Lines. “The design of this product from the Thin Film Flip Chip and Lumiramic phosphor to the tight alignment between the 9 LED die in the package contribute to the color performance, industry leading flux density, and punch unique to LUXEON S. In addition, by hot testing at 85C and achieving Freedom From Binning, we continue to move closer to the lighting industry in language and expectations for LUXEON performance.”The color quality and beam uniformity from LUXEON S is unsurpassed by any other comparable LED available today. It’s the first Freedom From Binning LED from Philips Lumileds, meaning that there are no color bin selections to be made. With a correlated color temperature of 3000K and a CRI >80, all LUXEON S emitters are targeted to the black body curve and populate an area within a 3 step MacAdam Ellipse. The result is unmatched uniformity and consistency within the light beam and between emitters. The 1300 “hot” lumens LUXEON S delivers come from a very small optical source that enables a 10° beam from a compact reflector less than 50 mm in diameter. In a retail spot or down light the result is tight, sharp beams that deliver high Punch – high center beam intensity with beam uniformity and a crisp single shadow – that highlights and gives depth to objects that are being illuminated. LUXEON S makes its debut at the Strategies in Light and Euroshop conferences this week. At EuroShop, LUXEON S will be shown in Fortimo solutions from Philips and others with solutions targeted at the retail and hospitality lighting segments. LUXEON S is available immediately for prototyping and development from Philips Lumileds and Future Lighting Solutions. Contact a local account manager for more details.
