Yuji LED Introduces World’s Highest Lumen Density COB Series

Yuji LED Introduces World’s Highest Lumen Density COB Series After years of research and development, Yuji LED proudly presents their high CRI high reliability COB with the world’s highest lumen density: A chip on board (COB) light source has a small emitting surface (LES) and large luminous flux, thus it is usually used in directional lighting fixtures, and is always the best choice for minimizing the fixture’s size. This means, however, that more heat will be generated, the luminous efficiency will be largely compromised, and that it may lead to the failure of the COB. Hence, when designing a COB, it is always the key point to improve the luminous flux and the reliability while controlling the LES. Based on this principle, YUJILEDS High Lumen Density High CRI COB Series was developed. Read more »
