Jan 27, 2017: Lumileds has launched the Luxeon MX packaged LED portfolio for high-output applications like streetlights, outdoor lights, and for high-bay indoor applications. Luxeon MX packaged LEDs deliver 150 lm/W efficacy at high drive currents, and integrates in 7×7-mm package with an output in the 1200-lm range, which is suitable for the above applications.
Luxeon MX packaged LED is one of the brightest and most efficient products—about the size of smaller chip-on-board (COB) LEDs. Any luminaire that uses this LED can achieve efficacy of 120 lm/W. “This is double the flux of comparable emitters in 120-lm/W systems,” said Seth Danielson, product manager for the Luxeon MX. “We’ve achieved this performance leap by optimizing the LED for improved efficiency at higher drive currents up to 1.5A with the 12V device.”
Lumileds also offers 3V and 6V configurations of the LEDs. The higher-voltage version enables lower drive currents to achieve the same power level for the array. The system performance by these LEDs enables lighting manufacturers to easily meet the stringent requirements of the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) qualified products. Lumileds offers the Luxeon M family in a wide CCT range from 3000K to 6500K. The LEDs are available at 70, 80, and 90 CRI.
