Lumileds Announces the Launch of Its 5th Generation COB (Chip-on-Board) for its Core Range and Core Range PW LED Lines, Significant Efficiency Increase Especially for Components with a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 90 with. Specifically, luminous power has increased by more than 15% and efficiency by more than 20%.
“Our new 5th Generation COB LEDs meet lighting manufacturers’ need for more light, higher efficiency, better light quality than ever before, and reliability they can count on. The remarkable performance enhancement is a direct result of our unique phosphor blend and LED manufacturing expertise, and our commitment to continually advance the state of the art to meet the needs of lighting manufacturers. Noman Rangwala, Global Product Manager de Lumileds.
These increases in power and performance are clearly reflected in the class improvement of these products in accordance with the EU EcoDesign Directive. Lumileds has subjected its CoBs to rigorous testing and measurement in accordance with the EU’s EcoDesign Directive. By these standards, the 90CRI LUXEON Core range line has moved up a full level in the CoBs classification. Full energy specifications can be found on the website of the European Energy Labeling Products Register (EPREL).
In addition to improving their performance, advances in phosphor technology also contribute to excellent color consistency when LUXEON Core range COBs are dimmed. This feature is especially important in retail and retail applications where the bulbs are often spaced apart from the products.
To achieve uniform lighting, some lighting is often dimmed, which can result in uneven colors in the beam and a visual effect on merchandise. To solve this common problem, Lumileds focused on color consistency during dimming, thus ensuring uniform color throughout the light beam regardless of dimming intensity.
LUXEON CoB Core Range Gen 5 and Core Range PW Gen 5 CoBs are available now through Lumileds’ global distribution network. Product description, specifications can be found on the manufacturer’s website.
