Updated LUXEON® Rebel ES Now Delivers 300+ Lumens

Philips Lumileds announced advancements in its LUXEON Rebel ES product line that enable new outdoor lighting solutions to deliver higher efficacy and more light output which shortens payback periods, lowers the total cost of ownership and enables LED systems to meet new efficiency standards being implemented around the world.

At 1000 mA, the new LUXEON Rebel ES delivers more than 300 lumens and efficacy of 100 lumens per watt. When optimizing for system efficiency, current can be lowered and efficacy can exceed 125 lumens per watt. Either way or in combination, applications can be more easily designed to meet emerging outdoor lighting standards system cost targets, and cost of ownership requirements.

“We continue to listen to our customers and broaden our LUXEON portfolio in order to help them achieve their lighting solution objectives,” said Steve Barlow, Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “For our customers, system efficiency and costs are significant drivers of LED solution adoption. LUXEON Rebel ES directly addresses these factors and supports our customers’ key objectives.”

LUXEON Rebel ES is optimized for outdoor applications, including streets, roadways, tunnels, and high- and low-bay lighting, with correlated color temperatures (CCTs) centered at 4100K and 5650K. The combination of light output levels, efficacy, and color temperature enable higher performance lighting systems that meet the needs of our customers and the end markets they serve. Options include optimizing for light output, thereby reducing the number of emitters required and potentially reducing upfront costs; optimizing for efficacy which lowers operating expenses through energy savings; or designing for variable operation based on the amount of light required at a particular time of day, or at a particular location.

The level of control and performance afforded by LUXEON Rebel ES is significantly beyond what’s possible with conventional sources, shortens payback periods, and minimizes ownership costs for customers deploying these lighting solutions. LUXEON Rebel ES emitters deliver the reliability, robustness, longevity, and quality of light characteristics that LUXEON LEDs are renowned for.

Implementing energy efficiency continues to be recognized as the simplest and most direct route to reducing green house gases and reducing the environmental impact of energy consumption around the world, In China, North America, and Europe in particular, the implementation of LUXEON Rebel ES based lighting solutions helps governments, utilities, and facility owners achieve their ‘green’ objectives and significantly reduce their operating costs.
