Philips Lumileds Debuts LUXEON 3014 and the Workhorse Mid-Power LED LUXEON 3030 2D

Today, Philips Lumileds announces two mid power LED emitters with hot color targeting and new 1/9th micro color binning, the LUXEON 3014 and LUXEON 3030 2D. Hot color targeting ensures ANSI compliance at application conditions while micro color binning simplifies color selection.

LUXEON 3030 2D:
Philips Lumileds is introducing the industry’s first and only mid-power LED with hot color targeting, which ensures performance within ANSI specifications at real-life operating temperatures. The LUXEON 3030 2D is destined to become a workhorse LED for high flux applications such as retrofit bulbs, downlights, as well as high bay and low bay luminaires.

Key Applications:
•    Lamps
•    High Bay & Low Bay
•    Downlights

Features & Benefits:
•    Industry standard package for drop-in replacement for existing 3030 LED packages
•    New 1/9th micro color binning
•    Hot color targeted to ensure that color is within ANSI bin at typical application conditions
•    Leading efficacy of 125 lm/W for warm white and 133 lm/W for cool white at 120mA and 25°C
•    Enables 3, 4, and 5-step MacAdam Ellipse kits

“Without hot color targeting, if a user purchases an LED that was performing on a bin edge at room temperature, it would likely shift out of the specification at application temperatures and cause an undesirable shift in color for the fixture,” said Mark Chang, Senior Product Line Manager of Mid-Power Products. Hot color targeting remedies this problem by targeting slightly above the black body locus at room temperature. At application conditions, the color temperature remains within ANSI specifications.

The LUXEON 3030 2D release is also being introduced with a new 1/9th micro color binning structure. Customers now have the ability to accurately select 3 or 5-step MacAdam Ellipse for optimal color control. “Designers can also easily pair different bins to hit a 3/4/5 SDCM color point,” said Chang.

The LUXEON 3030 2D LED utilizes an epoxy molding compound (EMC) QFN package for exceptional reliability and excellent lumen maintenance. Typical warm white (2700K) performance is 87 lm at 80 CRI at 120 mA. Cool white efficacy reaches 133 lm/W at 80 CRI and 120 mA. When driven at the maximum drive current of 240 mA, the LUXEON 3030 2D can deliver 160 lm at 6500K and 80 CRI.

Chang commented on the LUXEON 3030 2D performance boost relative to its predecessor. “Depending on CCT, the lumen output of the LUXEON 3030 2D is 10-15 percent higher than previous generation 2-die mid-power emitters,” he said.

The LUXEON 3014:
Philips Lumileds is introducing the LUXEON 3014 low-power emitter for linear and omnidirectional lighting applications such as under cabinet lighting, refrigerator display lighting, troffers, TLEDs and retrofit bulbs. Delivered in a rectangular 3.0x1.4x0.7 mm footprint, the LUXEON 3014 will be the industry’s first low-power LED offered with the advantages of hot color targeting and a 1/9th micro binning structure.

Key Applications:
•    Indoor Area Lighting
•    Retrofit Lamps

Features & Benefits:
•    Industry standard package for drop-in replacement
•    New 1/9th micro color binning of ease of color consistency
•    Hot color targeted to ensure better color accuracy
•    Rectangular package design increases uniformity

“Traditionally, an LED that performs on a bin edge at room temperature would shift out of the specification at application temperatures, resulting in a different color for the fixture than was intended,” said Michael Howley, Product Manager at Philips Lumileds. Hot color targeting remedies this problem by targeting slightly above the black body locus at room temperature. At application conditions, the color temperature remains within ANSI specifications.

The new 1/9th micro color binning structure enables tighter color control for a given application. “Designers can easily pair different bins to hit a 3/4/5 SDCM color point,” said Howley.

With leading cost effectiveness, the LUXEON 3014 emitter can deliver 10 - 12 lumens of uniform light at 30 mA in neutral white and can be driven as high as 100 mA to reach 33 lm. “The LUXEON 3014 is offered in an industry standard QFN package, allowing compatibility with leading manufacturers’ 3014 designs,” said Howley.
