Luminus Devices and Vision X Lighting form strategic partnership

Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for solid-state lighting applications, and Vision X Lighting have formed a strategic partnership aimed at extending the adoption of LED technology into lighting applications that are currently dominated by high-intensity discharge (HID) lamp technology. The collaboration will create a new class of LED lighting products.

"We assessed many high brightness LED products from manufacturers throughout the industry, but ultimately decided to partner with Luminus Devices because their Big Chip products perform at a level that sets them apart," says Vision X Lighting’s president Tony Georgitsis. "With a Luminus LED at the heart of the light fixture, we can deliver useful light at distances that could only previously be achieved with HID lamps. This is a true breakthrough in automotive aftermarket lighting, and we are thrilled about the partnership with Luminus, and the exciting new products we will be releasing in the coming months."

Vision X Lighting has recently launched its first product using a single Luminus LED. Light Cannon can produce a usable beam of light at a distance of more than 1000 feet, says the firm.
"At Luminus, we excel at providing our customers with high brightness LEDs that produce thousands of lumens,” said Jim Hunter, VP & general manager of Global Commercial Markets at Luminus. “As demonstrated through our partnership with Vision X Lighting, we enable our customers to create exciting lighting products capable of delivering high brightness light at great distances with unprecedented center beam candle power."
