Luminus’ PhlatLight LEDs Power New Spot Lights from Strong Entertainment Lighting

Luminus Devices, developer and manufacturer of big-chip PhlatLight® LEDs, today announced that it is powering the new Strong Entertainment Lighting Solutions 650 and 900 spot lights, used to light the largest skyscrapers and towers in the world, antennas, amphitheaters and artwork displays. The Solutions 650 and 900 lights have a total light output of 20,000 lumens and have a lifespan of 50,000 hours.

The Strong Solutions 650 and 900 lights are well suited for indoor and outdoor environments where high-brightness and performance is needed. The Solutions 650 utilizes a proprietary optics system giving the user a narrow 3 degree beam of light, with a reach of more than 1,500 feet. The Solutions 900 is a full color mixing fixture employing an array of PhlatLight LEDs and is four to five times brighter than anything on the market today.
“Our new Solutions products represent a unique application of LED technology that wouldn’t be possible without the Luminus CBT-90,” said Paul Rabinovitz, vice president of lighting, Strong Entertainment Lighting. “Together, Luminus Devices and Strong are developing next-generation narrow beam LED-based light fixtures with very long throws previously achievable only by using the highest performance lamps.”

“CBT-90 white LEDs provide lighting fixture manufacturers such as Strong Lighting with ultra-bright, white light with superior optical coupling and beam control enabling more efficient next-generation lighting applications,” said Don McDaniel, director, global entertainment, Luminus Devices. “Big-chip LEDs offer superior brightness over competitive products and can last the lifetime of the luminaire, eliminating the frequent lamp replacement of traditional spot lights.” 

The Solutions 650 and 900 series lights powered by CBT-90 PhlatLight LEDs can be seen at LDI 2010 in booths 637 and 837, October 22-24 inside the Las Vegas Convention Center. For more information, contact Bill Keeler or Nicole Slein at 781 684-0770 or
