Luminus launches XNOVA mid-power LED product line for replacement lamps and luminaires
At the Light + Building 2014 tradefair in Frankfurt, Germany (30 March– 4 April), Luminus Devices Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes PhlatLight (photonic lattice) LEDs for solid-state lighting (SSL) applications, announced the release to mass production of its new XNOVA line of mid-power LEDs developed for the general lighting market.
XNOVA mid‐power LEDs are targeted at high-growth lighting applications ranging from linear T8 lamps to diffused panel lighting and replacement lamps and luminaires. The new product line consists of the 2016, 3014, 3020 and 3030 platforms, with nominal input powers ranging from 0.18W to 0.93W and corresponding flux output from 22 lumens to 107 lumens.
XNOVA mid-power LEDs achieve luminous efficiacy of 130+ lumens per watt (LPW) at nominal test conditions, and 170+ LPW at lower input power. The products span the ANSI color gamut from 2700‐6500K, with standard minimum color rendering index (CRI) of 70 and 80. In addition, Luminus is offering each mid-power platform in a high-CRI configuration of 90+ for applications that require the highest color quality for demanding illumination applications.
“Mid-power LEDs are becoming broadly accepted in general lighting and Luminus is taking a leadership position with this launch to address the most demanding applications,” says chairman & CEO Dr Decai Sun. “Luminus continues to invest in market-leading light-source solutions for the highest-growth illumination market segments,” he adds. Luminus previously launched XNOVA white chip-on-board (COB) LEDs in late February.
