LUXEON Rebel Color Portfolio Provides Leading in-Application Performance - New Deep Red 650-670 nm LED

Demand for colored LEDs is on the rise and the LUXEON Rebel color portfolio performance is increasing and new colors are being added to the family. ‘Deep Red’, the most recent color added to the portfolio, delivers light in the 650-670 nanometer range. This wavelength range is essential for horticultural applications and is required by some governments around the world for applications like road and railway signaling.

“We are committed to the continuous improvement of our color portfolio and have delivered substantial light output increases,” said Steve Barlow, Sr. VP of Sales and Marketing. “For more than a decade, LUXEON LEDs have been the first choice for enlivening city centers and architectural wonders, bringing drama to concerts and performances, and ensuring people can move safely on our public transit systems.”

The drive for improved energy efficiency and the desire to deliver better lighting solutions is as strong today for colored applications as it is for white light applications. The LUXEON portfolio provides designers with a more sustainable lighting component and new creative license to show the world what LED light can do.
