Lumileds Expands and Improves Its Award Winning Luxeon C Color Line

Lumileds, the global leader in light engine technology, today expanded its line of Luxeon C Color LEDs to a total of 12 colors (and 8 whites), making it the industry’s broadest line of color LEDs available. The Luxeon C Color Line is an optically advanced portfolio of LEDs that enables flawless color mixing because the focal length of each LED is identical, enabling maximum optical efficiency in design.

“Lumileds has filled out the spectrum on an LED color line that really sets the standard in color mixing. We’re delivering  seamless color mixing and the right colors for every application, including studio and stage lighting, architectural lighting, emergency vehicle lighting as well as color tunable lamps/fixtures,” said Jennifer Holland, Product Manager for the Luxeon C Color Line.

The Luxeon C Color Line now includes Mint, Deep Red and Far Red colors, which join the existing offering of Red, Red-Orange, Amber, PC Amber, Green, Cyan, Blue and Royal Blue. In addition, the typical flux of  Luxeon C Red and Luxeon C Blue have been upgraded by 12%, delivering even better output from two of the most commonly used colors.

The Luxeon C Color Line is the winner of two distinguished industry awards in 2016, the Sapphire Award from LEDs Magazine and the Product Innovation Award (PIA) from Architectural SSL. The Sapphire Awards recognize solid-state lighting innovations that are driving technology forward and revolutionizing the lighting market. The PIA Awards honor the most innovative solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market as well as their components.

The white portion of the Luxeon C Color Line has been expanded to include color temperature and CRI combinations of 4000 K, 5000 K, 5700 K and 6500 K at 70 CRI; 2700 K, 3000 K and 4000 K at 80 CRI; and 5700 K at 90 CRI. The Luxeon C Color is the only line of color LEDs to be hot tested at 85°C to ensure performance at application conditions. With the industry’s lowest thermal resistance (2.8 °C/W), users can save on heat sink cost or drive the LEDs harder to attain higher output than with a competitor’s LEDs.

In addition to the expansion of the Luxeon C Color Line, Lumileds announces the addition of a Far Red offering to the Luxeon Rebel Color Line, a portfolio known for its leading light output, high efficacy and clear saturated colors. Additionally, the Luxeon Rebel Green, Cyan and Blue colors now feature 12% higher flux than the previous generation emitters.
