PHILIPS LUMILEDS Introduces Ultra Compact Luxeon C

Addressing the lighting industry’s need for smaller, more powerful, and long-lasting LEDs for applications like refrigerators, freezers, and washing machines, Philips Lumileds today is introducing LUXEON c, the company’s latest addition to its LUXEON power LED portfolio.

LUXEON c enables more efficient, cost effective, environmentally friendly lighting solutions for the tens of millions of appliances, tools, and portable applications that typically use a 10W to 40W conventional light bulb. For owners and users of these applications, implementing LUXEON c can reduce operating costs, energy consumption, and deliver a better experience for the owner.

“There are hundreds if not thousands of different lighting applications each with their own light source requirements. We have two objectives. First, to provide a path for our customers to move to a solution that makes sense for their business, and second, to enable them to rethink their design, take full advantage of the size and power of our LUXEON LEDs, and deliver a solution that adds value when compared to the original bulb-based solutions,” said Frank Harder, Vice President of Product Marketing.
LUXEON c summary specifications are:
• Small form factor, 2.04 mm x 1.64 mm x 0.7 mm
• Typical 82 lumens per watt and 85 lumens of light output
• Typical forward voltage of 2.95 V
• ANSI aligned binning CCT 5000K to 5700K
• 70% lumen maintenance at 20,000 hours

LUXEON c is available from Future Lighting Solutions, Future Lighting Solutions also offers engineering and complementary infrastructure resources to assist customers with rapid development and market introduction of solutions using LUXEON c. Complete documentation is available at
