LUXEON 3030 HE Plus Deep Dimming: Uniform Dimming To 1%
LUXEON 3030 HE Plus Deep Dimming: Uniform Dimming To 1% Lumileds introduced the first LED engineered for architectural applications that require uniform light output through the entire dimming range and operating conditions. The new LUXEON 3030 HE Plus Deep Dimming mid-power LED is designed for LED to LED flux uniformity across the entire dimming curve – down to 1% - that is required to achieve consistent visual performance. From full intensity above nominal current of 65 mA to 1% intensity at 0.65 mA, every LED will provide the same flux performance in the application. Key to the performance is forward voltage variance of just 0.10 V which simplifies driver design and compatibility. The single 3 SDCM color bin ensures color consistency at any CCT. Lumileds 3 V 3030 package is a proven, high efficacy industry standard platform that allows for drop in replacement of existing 3030 footprint LEDs. Read more »
