Luminus Gen 2 XH LED Delivers Knockout Punch to Metal Halide: More Light Output, More Center Beam Candlepower

Luminus Devices, Inc., a global manufacturer of high-performance LEDs and solid-state light sources, today announced its superior alternative to metal halide, the Gen 2 XH Series chip-on-board (COB) LED array. With substantial increases in light output and density, as well as color rendering, Luminus’ Gen 2 XH Series directly addresses the requirements of lighting designers and retailers for punch and the ability to create dramatic scenes.

Color rendering, light output, efficiency, center beam candlepower, all improve on the performance of conventional metal halide.
