Intematix ChromaLit Contour Enables LED Replacement of 100-Watt Incandescent Light Bulb

Intematix Corporation, a leading innovator of patented phosphors and phosphor components for high-quality LED lighting, today announced the availability of ChromaLit™ Contour. Lighting manufacturers can implement ChromaLit Contour to produce 60, 75 and 100 watt-equivalent omni-directional light in an LED system. Intematix also offers A Lamp reference designs for these systems.

Intematix’s ChromaLit remote phosphor can reduce LED costs by 25% compared with conventional LED light bulb designs while offering precise color matching and exceptional light quality.

ChromaLit Contour exceeds Energy Star and China Quality Certification lighting requirements with:
• Uniform, glare-free and diffuse light
• 330 degree lighting distribution
• Standard color rendering options up to CRI 90
• Choice of color temperature from 2700K to 5000K
• Precise color matching

“ChromaLit Contour‘s remote phosphor architecture makes available in production for the first time a high performance 100-watt replacement light bulb just as incandescent products are phased out from store shelves, ” said Julian Carey, Senior Director of Marketing at Intematix. “With ChromaLit remote phosphor we offer our customers time-to-market advantage and lower production costs for LED light bulbs, while enabling high quality light within the constraints of light bulb sizes.”

Contour is the latest in Intematix’s award-winning ChromaLit line of remote phosphor products.  This design trend separates the phosphor substrate from the blue LED, instead of coating the LEDs with phosphor directly.  Any blue LED may be used which increases flexibility and lowers costs for lighting manufacturers.

ChromaLit Contour’s shape enables internal and external convection airflow to reduce the operating temperature of the LEDs, enabling higher lumen output in constrained form factors.  Like the rest of the ChromaLit line, Contour offers glare-free, diffuse light, precision color rendering and color temperature, and consistent light quality.  By boosting system efficacy by up to 30%, ChromaLit reduces manufacturing costs, energy consumption and total cost of ownership.

ChromaLit Contour in 60W, 75W and 100W incandescent equivalent configurations can be seen at LIGHTFAIR in Las Vegas from May 9 -11, at booth #2949.
