Philips Lumileds has launched a new white LED array , which can assist LED system producers to free from the tiresome LED binning process and reduce inventory requirements as well as time to market.
The new LUXEON K arrays come under a 3-step MacAdam ellipse and provide higher consistency in lumen per watt as a result of forward voltage as well as flux ranges.
The arrays suits for energy-efficient downlight and retrofit lamp applications that need high light output within a space and thermally constrained system.
The Freedom From Binning commitment of Philips Lumileds guarantees that each LUXEON K array is proper to a single 3 SDCM and this assures that each luminaire and lamp that use LUXEON K arrays will provide brightness, precise color and lumens per watt consistently. As a result, the design and assembly of this simplified system increases marketing time and minimizes costs connected with logistics, binning and inventory management.
LUXEON K arrays also provide LED system manufacturers and designers with a wide range of color, size and lumen options. Modules are obtainable in 400- to 4,000-lumen outputs, 4-, 8-, 12-, 16- and 24-emitter arrays and 2,700 K, 3,000K and 4,000K CCTs. The arrays are fixed on an aluminum metal core circuit board in order to ensure a safe thermal path between the heat sink on which the array is mounted mechanically and the LEDs. The new LUXEON K array exceeds the lumen maintenance requirements of ENERG Y STAR.
