Bridgelux’s Gen9 COBs Deliver 200 lm/W Efficacy

Bridgelux announced the launch of its Gen9 COBs. The Gen9 COB is a result of continuous effort to improve CRI80 efficacy to 200 lm/W warm white and represents a 10% improvement from the previous generation CRI 80 Gen8 COBs. Gen9 COBs are available in a wide range of Light-Emitting Surfaces (LES) from 6 mm to 22 mm in diameter.

Together with Gen9 V SeriesTM COBs, Bridgelux is offering a set of solder-free COB holders and optical lenses to better serve our customers with a total lighting solution. Both holder and optics meet Zhaga standards. The holders will be suitable for all V SeriesTM and VestaTM TW COBs from Gen9 V6 to Gen9 V22. The optics can be clicked on the holders and have diameters from 35mm, 45mm, and 55mm, to 65mm with a wide range of beam angles from 15 degree to 60 degree.
Gen9 COBs are particularly robust and can be operated with a case temperatures up to 105⁰C at a maximum drive current of 2X normal while delivering the improved efficacy of 200 lm/W at CRI80.  Bridgelux Gen9 COBs are an ideal solution for all commercial and residential lighting applications to meet US DLC and Euro ERP energy saving specifications.
“Bridgelux is emerging as the LED technology leader with the successful launch of new products in recent years, which feature Thrive(TM) full spectrum wellbeing lighting based on innovative broad blue chip technology and F90TM high efficacy CRI90 based on narrow band red phosphor technology.”, says Dr. Yi-Qun Li, CEO of Bridgelux. “Whether you are a designer, a product developer or a consumer, Gen9 further expands Bridgelux product portfolio to the industry leading efficacy 200 lm/W COB to meet your high energy saving demands.”
