San Jose, CA – August 31, 2021 – More lumens, higher efficacy, and lower system costs are the driving forces behind new designs for a broad range of indoor and outdoor high light output applications. Lumileds new LUXEON 7070
, introduced today, is designed to outperform similar lead-frame and ceramic high-power solutions with leading efficacy and light output in a robust, small surface mount package. For any new or redesigned street light, high/low bay, horticulture, or other application that requires many thousands of lumens, LUXEON 7070 will be the clear choice.
“Across seven critical parameters, lumens per emitter, lumens per Watt, lumens per dollar, system cost, optical compatibility, ruggedness and lumen maintenance,
LUXEON 7070 is the clear best overall value for new designs,” said Noman Rangwala, Product Line Director at Lumileds. “We’ve worked in advance with Future Lighting Solutions, LEDiL and Carclo to develop asymmetric and symmetric optical systems available at launch so that manufacturers can immediately take advantage of LUXEON 7070’s power and robustness.”
Engineers from Lumileds and Future Lighting Solutions
have already established a comprehensive ecosystem including drivers, heatsinks, optics, and technical know-how to support LUXEON 7070 solution design and production. Evaluation kits are available with driver and optics for turnkey evaluation.
LUXEON 7070 is a game changer. Compared to a typical 5050 LED, a LUXEON 7070 delivers three times the light output. This allows for lower LED density that can reduce the size and cost of the PCB, optimize the heatsink, and potentially the optical system as well.
LUXEON 7070 utilizes a special treatment designed for superior lumen maintenance and corrosion resistance in punishing conditions like atop a high mast, or in high humidity. It is hot color-targeted (85°C), binned for 3 and 5 step MacAdam ellipse and is immediately available in a full range of CCTs: 2200K to 6500K and 70, 80, or 90CRI.
