Lumileds Accelerates Outdoor Fixture Design with Off-the-Shelf Addition to Matrix Platform, LUXEON XR-M

Designed specifically as a turnkey solution for outdoor LED fixtures, today Lumileds introduces the LUXEON XR-M line of Matrix Platform solutions. These versatile building blocks integrate 3, 4 or 5 LUXEON M LEDs on a metal core PCB, providing a platform that enables fixture manufacturers to accelerate their design of streetlights, high bay and low bay luminaires. For instance, the 4 LED square version, in combination with industry standard optics and driver, yields a complete IP66 solution.

“LUXEON XR-M incorporates LUXEON M, one of our most efficient and top selling, high power LEDs. The boards can be connected in parallel or series for driver design flexibility, and the wide variety of lens options means designers have multiple turnkey options to release a full range of luminaires much faster to market,” said Andrew Cohen, Product Manager of the Matrix Platform at Lumileds.

The LUXEON XR-M achieves excellent efficacy at the board level of 140 lm/W at 4000 K, 70 CRI, Tc=85°C and 700 mA drive current. Using constant pitch between the LEDs and PCBs, combining multiple LUXEON XR-M modules achieves the most uniform, distributed light patterns. Each LUXEON XR-M module provides 3,300 to 5,500 lm and is available in color temperatures of 4000 K, 5000 K and 5700 K with a minimum CRI of 70. This new product is part of the Lumileds Matrix Platform of infinitely configurable LED boards, linear flex and modules featuring LUXEON LEDs. The Matrix Platform comes in both off-the-shelf and built-to-spec options, offering a virtually limitless range of solutions for any application.
