Lumileds Luxeon CoB Compact Range for Most Cost-Effective Single Source, Retrofit and Directional Lamps

Lumileds launches its most cost effective line of chip-on-board (CoB) LED arrays with industry-leading punch and efficacy. The Luxeon CoB Compact Range further strengthens Lumileds’ lead in the CoB category enabling the most cost competitive solutions for PAR, GU10 and MR16 lamps. This line of arrays is also distinct in that the same optic can be used for both a 35W equivalent and a 50W equivalent GU10 or MR16 lamp, thereby reducing system cost and development effort to the manufacturer.

“The  Luxeon CoB Compact Range is designed to deliver unsurpassed center beam candle power (CBCP) making it the ideal choice for designers of PAR lamps and other compact directional lamps,” said Ahmed Eweida, Product Manager.  The range of 5W, 7W and 9W CoBs produce between 600 and 1100 lm at 110 lm/W, making 100 lm/W GU10, MR16, PAR 16 and PAR30 equivalents a reality.

With this introduction, Lumileds extends its lead in the CoB market with its combination of high efficacy, high flux, and small LES (light-emitting surface) of 6.5 mm, enabling high punch at low beam angles. “In a GU10 lamp, the  Luxeon CoB 109 achieves 70,000 candelas and 1,500 lumens with a 10˚ beam angle,” said Eweida.

The  Luxeon CoB Compact Range 109 will also be available with CrispWhite Technology, the LED innovation that revolutionized retail lighting by revealing the richest whites, vibrant reds and colors that pop.

Lighting designers are using  Luxeon CoB Compact Range arrays to produce their most cost competitive retrofit and directional lamps for retail, home and hospitality applications. Lumileds has worked with several key ecosystem partners, for the CoB family, to release compatible drivers, optics and holders to help speed the time-to-market of all lamps.
