Princeton Tec Remix headlamp profits from Luxeon LEDs & Future’s supply chain services

May 13, 2010
Date Announced: 13 May 2010 Award-Winning Product LAS VEGAS -– Campers, hikers, climbers and others who need to light up the night can do it brightly, efficiently and hands-free with the LED-based Princeton Tec Remix headlamp, thanks in part to LUXEON® Rebel LED technology as well as LED supply chain services from Future Lighting Solutions. The strap-to-your-head light has won two awards in the last three months for its brightness, durability and versatility in delivering both close- and long-range night lighting in a single unit.Each Remix headlamp contains a single cool white LUXEON Rebel LED capable of illuminating objects more than 150 feet away, plus three 5mm LEDs designed for reading and other closeup activities. The small LUXEON Rebel footprint shrinks the size of the lamp for extra-comfortable wear while also enabling the use of a narrow reflector that is instrumental in achieving the unit’s 150-foot reach for spotlight use. In addition, the 100 lumen LUXEON Rebel package delivers a net 70 lumens of output that is nearly twice as bright as Princeton Tec’s previous generation of headlamps.LED supply chain services provided by exclusive LUXEON distributor Future Lighting Solutions ensure that Princeton Tec receives LEDs from a tight range of forward voltage and color bins with every shipment. Emitters from designated bins are held in bonded inventory for Princeton Tec to provide color and brightness consistency from unit to unit, reflecting Future’s ability to customize delivery programs to the needs of the customer.“Without the LUXEON Rebel and the services of Future Lighting Solutions, we would have had a difficult time bringing the Remix headlamp to market, especially at a $40 price point,” said Gerard Armendinger, Director of International Sales and Marketing for Princeton Tec. “The compact LUXEON Rebel form factor, the affordability of the LED package, and Future’s binning services are helping us establish the Remix as a market leader.”The Remix headlamp won the “Best All-Around” category in a Backpacker magazine field test of five headlamps in March, followed by a “2010 Editors’ Choice Award” from Camping Life magazine in the May issue.Future Lighting Solutions is exhibiting at Booth #1121 at this week’s Lightfair International conference in Las Vegas.About Future Lighting SolutionsFuture Lighting Solutions ( is a leading provider of LED lighting components and support services for solid-state lighting products and installations, including engineering expertise, concept development, full system solutions and online tools that accelerate quality application development.
