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 or by contacting Future Lighting Solutions, The new LUXEON LED will be shown at Philips Lumileds booth, #619, at Strategies in Light opening February 7 in Santa Clara, California.
