Lumileds' Luxeon CoB 1216 for Groundbreaking Efficiency in Streetlights and Industrial Luminaires

Designers of high lumen streetlights, high bay fixtures and downlights are taking advantage of Lumileds latest addition to its successful Luxeon CoB Core Range portfolio, the Luxeon CoB 1216. These arrays provide a 40% greater flux than Lumileds existing CoBs in an identical mechanical footprint.

“We continue to push our chip-on-board technology to higher efficiency, which is important in all applications but particularly in outdoor fixtures,” said Eric Senders, Product Line Director for CoB LEDs at Lumileds. “With the new line of arrays, customers are achieving 150 lm/W at nominal condition, which, combined with our lowest in the industry thermal resistance, leads to the most cost efficient systems.”

In addition to high lumen output and efficiency, the Luxeon CoB 1216 provides the beam uniformity and ease of design required for streetlights and high bay fixtures, allowing replacement of 100-150 W HIDs. Featuring a 23mm light emitting surface (LES) in a standard 28 mm x 28 mm package, the Luxeon CoB 1216 can take advantage of the wide variety of optics and compatible holders in this size, allowing fixture manufacturers to speed time to market of their luminaires. “We are hearing very positive feedback from the several leading lighting companies who have already adopted the Luxeon CoB 1216, and we see this product will become a great success,” said Senders.

The Luxeon CoB 1216 is offered in the industry’s widest range of color temperatures (2200 K to 5700 K) and CRIs (70, 80 and 90). 100% of Luxeon CoB Core Range (Gen 2) arrays are hot tested at 85°C to ensure performance in real world operating conditions and to minimize additional testing. A low thermal resistance substrate minimizes heat sink needs.
