LG Innotek’s New High Power LED Improves Efficacy by 30% up to 167 lm/W

LG Innotek announces the release of a new high power LED technology, with a 30% lumen efficacy improvement over its previous products. The proprietary “next-gen” vertical chip technology boasts up to 167lm/W, now positioned as one of the world’s best performing High Power LED’s. This represents a 30% improvement in performance versus previous high power products,

LG Innotek’s “next-gen” vertical chip technology is suitable for high temperature environments, such as 85°C or above, where the performance degrades less than 5%, while typical LEDs show greater light output degradation.

LG Innotek’s high power LEDs are optimal for outdoor/indoor applications such as street lights and commercial High Bay lighting.  The high efficiency of the LED package allows for design optimization, making the OEM’s light fixture more market competitive and differentiated. LG Innotek also plans to release higher CRI (Color Rendering Index) products (90 or higher) to serve the more demanding commercial lighting market.

In addition, LG Innotek ensured high reliability because of the improvement in the heat dissipation capability with LED epitaxial growth technology and packaging technology. So it has more than 54,000 hour’s life. And 'LM-80’ (The U.S Environmental Protection Agency(EPA)’s LED Lighting reliability ratings) certification was completed and officially recognized package’s reliability.
