Philips Lumileds Ânnounces LUXEON K for Retrofit and Downlight LED Lighting Applications

Philips Lumileds introduced LUXEON K today, its illumination grade array that charts a new direction for downlights and retrofit bulbs so that solutions can come to market more quickly and at a price that drives market adoption. LUXEON K arrays provide thousands of lumens of light output and will be available in three different CCTs with a typical CRI of 85, and with five configurations of 4-24 emitters per array, in early Q2 of this year.

“LUXEON K extends our portfolio of illumination grade LEDs engineered to optimize end-user satisfaction of specific applications,” said Rahul Bammi, VP Marketing at Philips Lumileds. “For downlights and retrofit bulbs, LUXEON K provides a unique approach that delivers the highest, most consistent quality of light in an easy-to-implement array. Our hot testing and specification at 85°C, and freedom from color, flux, and Vf binning, makes LUXEON K the simplest of LEDs to specify and use.”

LUXEON K Performance Overview:
• CCT: 2700K, 3000K, 4000K,
• Guaranteed minimum CRI of 80 and typical 85
• Typical Flux at 700 mA: 620 to 4455 lumens
• >100 lumens / Watt at 350 mA, Tj 85°C, 3000K CCT
• Hot testing and specification at 85°C
• Freedom From Binning:
Single 3-step MacAdam Ellipse color space
No flux bins; no Vf bins

Companies interested in LUXEON K can receive updates on availability, sampling, and specifications by sending an email to Philips Lumileds LUXEON@Philips.com or by contacting Future Lighting Solutions, LUXEON@futurelightingsolutions.com. The new LUXEON LED will be shown at Philips Lumileds booth, #619, at Strategies in Light opening February 7 in Santa Clara, California.
