LED Engin Releases New High Power LED with Seven Colors on a Single Emitter

LED Engin, Inc. announces the world’s first 7-color, high power LED to be produced on a single emitter. The compact LZ7-04MU00 emitter enables the design of stage or architectural lighting that produces sophisticated effects over the full color spectrum. Its RGBW die are complemented by phosphor-converted (PC) amber, cyan and violet to provide richer, wide-ranging color effects. PC amber delivers the same saturation as regular amber but with 5 times the flux at temperature, cyan fills the spectrum gap between blue and green, and violet enables black or crisp white lighting effects. Typical stage and studio applications include moving heads with zoom optics and round wash lights. In architectural lighting, the emitters enhance the performance of everything from static lights to linear wash lights.

LED Engin Adds New RGBW Emitters to LED Lighting Portfolio

LED Engin, Inc. announces a new world record in both flux and power density for high power, multi-color LED lighting with its latest LZP family of red, green, blue and cool white (RGBW) emitters. The 25-die, 80-watt emitters deliver 3800 lumens, the world’s highest luminous flux density from a 6.2mm x 6.2mm light emitting area on 12mm x 12mm emitter footprint. This has been achieved through an improved LZP package design that results in the industry’s lowest thermal resistance per package footprint of 0.5 °C/watt. As a result, the LZP now gives designers of entertainment and architectural lighting the freedom to create more powerful yet slimmer, very compact lamps in innovative new styles that appeal to customers. The emitter is the first of three new multi-color products in LED Engin’s development schedule announced in April. The others are the LZ7 7-color emitter and the ultra-high power LZ4 4-die RGBW, which can be driven up to 3 amps/die.

LED Engin Announces its Whitest LED for Lighting

LED Engin is claiming high quality light with a CRI of 97 from its ‘gallery white‘ LEDs. CRI is not a perfect measure of colour rendering. It is officially measured using eight pastel shades (called R1-R8) and it is not unknown for lighting LEDs and fluorescent lamps to have their spectrum tuned to deliver a high CRI number at the expense of visual fidelity with certain common colours. Not so with LED Engin’s latest range. "Accurate colour rendering is a critical factor in achieving the desired ambience in high-performance applica...
