LUXEON® Rebel Lumen Maintenance Exceeds ENERGY STAR® Guidelines

Philips Lumileds’ announced today that test data for its LUXEON Rebel LEDs shows performance that exceeds ENERGY STAR® guidelines intended to ensure quality solid-state luminaire development. The data shows that LUXEON Rebel LEDs have average lumen maintenance of 99% after 6,000 hours, far surpassing the 91.8% ENERGY STAR requirements for residential fixtures as well as available published data for other power LEDs.

*Results are based on normalizing the raw lumen data to 1 at 24 hours. Ts as described in IESNA LM-80

The results reinforce the superior lumen maintenance performance that has been a hallmark of LUXEON LEDs since they were introduced in 2000, They reflect the ability of the materials used to build LUXEON LEDs — including those used in the Epitaxial process, the phosphors, and the lens and packaging materials — to withstand the rigors of use and the elements to which they might be exposed under a variety of conditions without degrading the light output too rapidly.
