Smooth Color Mixing, Great Punch Become Standard in Architectural Lighting with LUXEON C Colors

Lumileds today announces a revolutionary approach to achieving flawless color mixing with its high power LUXEON C Color Line of LEDs. “We’ve solved the problems of beam halos and mismatched, unmixed color by designing our platform to offer multiple colors with a single focal length,” explained David Cosenza, Product Manager for the LUXEON C Colors Line. When secondary optics are applied, the consistent focal length maximizes optical efficiency and provides matching emission patterns, enabling sleek color mixing.

Smooth color mixing is particularly significant in studio, stage and television lighting applications that may combine seven colors or more. “Initial feedback from studio lighting professionals confirms that Lumileds LUXEON C Color LEDs’ precise color mixing and optical performance will enable a new generation of lighting designs,” said Cosenza.

High center beam candle power (CBCP) or “punch” is often essential in architectural lighting. Applications such as tall, narrow wall washers take advantage of LUXEON C Colors’ low dome design, which keeps the source size small, leading to higher punch, more compact optics and greater optical control. Narrow beams are also utilized in emergency vehicle lighting, where superior punch is essential.

In addition to these key benefits, LUXEON C Color is the industry’s first hot tested color line. By specifying LED performance at 85°C, customers get guaranteed performance at application conditions. “Predicting changes in chromaticity and light output across temperature for different colors is now a problem of the past,” said Cosenza. And by using the industry’s lowest thermal resistance substrates (as low as 2.8°C/W), customers can drive the LEDs harder.

The LUXEON C Color Line features a broad portfolio of colors in a compact, 2x2 mm package. Colors include PC Amber, Red-Orange, Red, Cyan, Green, Blue, and Royal Blue. Phosphor-converted whites are initially available at 4000K and 5700K with 70 CRI. Additional offerings will become available in the coming months.
