Lumileds New LED Demonstrates Superior Resistance to Harsh Environments

Today Lumileds introduces the Luxeon HR30 LED, a mid power device that withstands harsh chemical environments and is designed with robust packaging and industry-best materials to operate for over 100,000 hours of continuous operation. This LED addresses the tremendous need for dependable lighting that will operate in hazardous environments (such as chemical plants, power generation facilities and natatoriums) and be able to withstand extremes of temperature and operating current.

“The Luxeon HR30 is the only LED in its class to provide a service life in the 100,000 hour range while withstanding corrosive elements like sulfur and chlorine,” said Matthew Everett, Senior Product Director for Luxeon Mid Power Products. The LED’s chemical resistance is partially attributed to its gold-plated leadframe and its optimized materials package. The Luxeon HR30 has demonstrated strong performance in chemical resistance tests such as IEC68-2-43 (15 ppm): delta LOP < 10%, delta u’v’ < 0.006 after 21 days. “Engineering for chemical resistance is all about selecting the best materials and then testing those materials under harsh conditions. We have leveraged our expertise in materials science and lumen maintenance to produce the industry’s most robust mid power LED,” said Everett.

The Luxeon HR30 produces 125 lumens at 134 lm/W when driven at 150 mA at 4000 K and 70 CRI. The LED is available at color temperatures of 4000 K, 5000 K and 5700 K at 70 CRI and 2700 K, 3000 K, 4000 K and 5700 K at 80 CRI Luxeon HR30 is one of the breakthroughs introduced during Lumileds Mid Power March 2016.
