Unveiled at LpS 2019: Nichia's 2-in-1 Tunable White LED Begins Changing the Game

Nichia, the leader in and inventor of the high-brightness LED, announced its game-changing single LES, tunable white mid power 3030 LED to the public on September 19th. The game changing NF2W757G-MT was unveiled, in detail, one week later at LpS 2019 in Bregenz, Austria. As previously announced, this cutting-edge technology gives design and operational freedom to luminaire manufacturers around the world.

NF2W757G-MT uses the standard 757 package with new patented technology to allow the user to smoothly transition CCT's from 6,500K to 2,700K.  The significant innovation is its ability to accomplish color tuning under a small, single light emitting surface (LES), thus achieving superb color uniformity with high color quality; up to 90 CRI in the popular CCT's.  The 2-in-1 tunable white 757 enables thinner, sleeker optical designs, eliminating the need for bulky mixing chambers.

In addition to remarkable color, NF2W757G-MT allows users to improve operational efficiency.  With performance on par with the primary 757's shipping today, the industry's #1 mid power LED, CCT can now be selected with ease at the time of assembly, shipment or installation vs. carrying inventory of multiple CCT's.  This can dramatically reduce inventory complexity, lead times and cost.  NF2W757G-MT will be available in multiple binning options, including 3-step only, to further simplify the implementation.

Nichia's vision, innovative passion and technical ability has led to this ground-breaking LED development.  The excitement within Nichia has truly been matched by the industry over these past 2 weeks.  Nichia's unveiling at LpS in Austria was met with enthusiasm and excitement from manufacturers and designers gathering to learn more, as well as recognition from LpS.  Nichia received the Best Sustainability Technology Award for 2-in-1 Tunable White LED with Single LES, a back to back awards honor for Nichia (Optisolis™ received LpS Best Lighting Technology in 2018).  Feedback from around the world has also been just as strong, including comments such as "This is the most exciting thing from any LED Manufacturer since CSP!!!" and "game changer for sure".  Mr. Rick Earlywine, Senior Vice President of Architectural and Downlighting Solutions at Acuity Brands Lighting stated, "Nichia's 2-in-1 LED enables us to deliver a new type of fixture with leading style, performance and color quality.  We are excited to be able to launch the first ever product with this breakthrough technology in our new Renna Family.  Additionally, we will recognize operational benefits with up to a 90% SKU reduction, while still delivering our full line-up and service promises to our customer."

Nichia's 2-in-1 is now in production, with samples and data available through local Nichia offices.  Please contact your local Nichia representative to begin changing the game.
