Cree Launches Industry’s Highest Efficacy 90 CRI COB LEDs

Cree Launches Industry’s Highest Efficacy 90 CRI COB LEDs Cree, Inc. announces the XLamp® eTone™ LEDs, a breakthrough set of chip-on-board (COB) LEDs that delivers beautiful 90 color rendering index (CRI) light quality at the same efficacy as today’s standard 80 CRI LEDs. Delivering up to 155 lumens per watt (LPW) at 3000 K CCT, 85°C, Cree’s new eTone COB LEDs provide the highest efficacy available in the industry compared to competing COB LEDs of the same size and color. The enhanced performance of these new LEDs can radically transform the output, efficacy and size of LED luminaires in applications that need high quality light, including retail, museum, high-end commercial and medical.

PerfectWhite: Luminus’ Latest Spectrally Tuned COB

PerfectWhite: Luminus’ Latest Spectrally Tuned COB Spectrally tuned sources are the essential components of human-centric lighting and Luminus PerfectWhite is it’s newest source, joining the Sensus and AccuWhite products, that has been purpose-designed and improves upon the light from conventional sources. PerfectWhite™, which closely replicates the visual characteristics of halogen lamps (3000 K) was preferred by lighting designers in testing at both Light + Building and Lightfair. Though the spectrums are a virtual match – Luminus filled the cyan gap – PerfectWhite’s color point is slightly below the black body locus and as a result, there’s no green/yellow tint that is common to halogen. A better halogen has long been a wish of the lighting design community and PerfectWhite delivers without infra-red, without green/yellow tint, and without ultraviolet radiation. Read more »

LED Engin Introduces World’s First 50 W Seven-Die LED Emitter

LED Engin Introduces World’s First 50 W Seven-Die LED Emitter LED Engin, an Osram business, has unveiled the LZ7 Plus, the world’s first 50 W seven-die LED emitter. The trend in stage lighting fixtures has evolved from not only delivering ultra-bright light with narrow beam, but also creating more sophisticated color schemes and high CRI white. LZ7 Plus is uniquely designed to address this trend, featuring seven high-power dies in six colors, which can be individually controlled to deliver intense, saturated colors, as well as high quality white light as a result of color mixing. The LZ7 Plus can be used in various stage fixtures, such as static and moving head wash fixtures, as well as profile fixtures. Read more »
