Samsung’s New Q-series LED Improves Premium Indoor Lighting Efficiency

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd., a world leader in advanced digital component solutions, today announced that it is launching the “Q-series,” a new line-up of LED linear modules for use in premium indoor luminaire applications where an exceptionally high level of light efficacy* is required.

The Q-series features 200 lumens per watt (lm/W) of light efficacy*, which is the highest efficacy level among LED linear modules anywhere. The new modules are the first to incorporate the LM301B, Samsung’s recently announced mid-power family of LED package.

This allows LED lighting fixtures using the new modules to reach more than 150lm/W, enabled through an optical efficiency level of approximately 86 percent and LED driver efficiency of about 88 percent. The Q-series’ performance levels are ideally suited to meet DLC** Premium technical standards, which require higher efficacy and lumen maintenance specifications than the DLC Standard classification.

The new Q-series modules come in one-, two- and four-foot sizes, and can be combined linearly to achieve any desired length. There are two sets of modules: Q-series modules for the North American market are UL certified, while those for the European market have CE certification.

The Q-series has the same form factor as Samsung’s other modules for easy retrofitting with existing LED luminaires and is now available through Samsung’s worldwide LED sales network.

With the addition of the premium Q-series line-up, Samsung now offers five families of LED lighting modules (H-, M-, Q-, S- and V-series) to meet most indoor LED lighting needs.
