Philips Lumileds Announces Breakthrough White LED Array

Philips Lumileds, a manufacturer of high-power LEDs, has declared the launch of a new white LED array that is designed to free LED system producers from the tiresome LED binning process, inventory requirements and time to market, bringing down their costs.

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 are suitable 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.
