LUXEON HL1Z Outperforms Seemingly Brighter Competitors, and the Proof is in the Application
LUXEON HL1Z Outperforms Seemingly Brighter Competitors,  and the Proof is in the Application Data sheets have long been the go to source for LED specifications and are broadly used to narrow options and ultimately select an LED for a particular application. Too often, however, factors not accounted for in the data sheet significantly affect the LED’s performance in the application and, in some cases, relying on data sheet specifications alone will lead to the wrong conclusion. LUXEON HL1Z, Lumileds newest high power LED offers the perfect example. Read more »
