Seoul Semiconductor Sets a New Benchmark for Top View Level LEDs

Seoul Semiconductor, one of the world's leading provider and innovator in the LED technology, is now providing an additional parameter for the performance assessment of its 5630 Top View LED: SSC features from now on the power and the luminous efficacy of the LED not only in lumens per watt (lm/W), but also in the description price per lumen. Thereby the LED manufacturer aims to create greater transparency and investment security for its customers and end users.

"With the additional indication of price per lumen, we see ourselves as a revolutionary in the LED industry," said Manuel Zarauza, Managing Director of Seoul Semiconductor. “The main reason for the change is we reduce potential entry barriers by the competitive price and provide a simple payback period for the customer. At a glance he oversees how much the investment is using LED by SSC in the same or higher lumen output. "

Until recently, only the performance of LEDs in lumens per watt was specified. Due to the more and more powerful LEDs, the significance in the indication of the LEDs in lm/W is qualified as the only reference, because LED solutions already achieve the benefits of conventional light and can even take over. Since the LED 5630 by SSC can be used in 80% of all lighting applications, allowing much more energy-efficient solutions than ordinary bulbs, the price per lumen specification is the crucial reference value in the LED lighting market.

This is not the first time that SSC is setting new standards in the LED market: SSC was the market pioneer for lights with a color rendering index (CRI) of 80 and above. Another leading product is the Acriche, the first AC LED without a converter.
