Luminus Introduces SSM-80 High Brightness LED for General Lighting

Luminus Devices, Inc. announced the introduction of the SSM-80 LED, a high efficacy and high brightness warm white LED for general lighting. The product is designed for indoor directional and spot lighting applications and will have an initial release in warm white color points of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K. At these warm white color points the SSM-80 can achieve up to 100 LPW at 350mA, and more than 1,600 lumens at its top end rated drive condition.

“In a direct response to the demands of our general lighting customers and a rapidly growing market, the SSM-80 combines high lumens and high efficacy in a small emitting area, which enables tight beam control and provides new degrees of creativity and innovation for spot lighting applications,” said Chuck DeMilo, Global Director of Product Marketing for the Lighting Business Group at Luminus Devices. “It enables lighting fixture designers to achieve light intensity levels for applications such as retail track that approach the levels of ceramic metal halide.”

The SSM-80 is tested and binned at a nominal input drive condition of 1A and 12V, which makes it electrically compatible with a wide array of commercially available offthe- shelf drivers and ballasts. Other features include a thermal resistance less than 1.0°C/W and an L70 lifetime greater than 60,000 hours. The SSM-80 is ideally suited for a variety of applications including spot lighting, narrow beam down lights and focused general lighting applications where high performance and high efficacy in a standard surface mount package are needed. The SSM-80 is available for sampling now with volume shipments starting in late summer.
