Lumileds’ new LUXEON MZ doubles lumen density and center-beam candle power

Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA says that its newest high-power LED, the LUXEON MZ, enables the creation of tighter beam angles with higher lumen density at a lower cost than was previously possible, delivering optical control in a 600-1000lm package. Also, due to its design compatibility with the proven LUXEON M emitter, outdoor, industrial and area lamps as well as spotlights and downlights can benefit from faster qualification and time to market, says the firm.

“With the LUXEON MZ in combination with LUXEON M, designers can create two solutions with one optic and one PCB, thereby lowering overall costs,” says senior VP Emmanuel Dieppedalle. “Customers are already designing platforms with LUXEON M and LUXEON MZ to create multiple SKUs [stock keeping units] using less engineering resources.”

In an MR16 the LUXEON MZ delivers 50,000 candela center-beam candle power (CBCP) compared with encapsulated emitters that only achieve half the beam intensity using the same sized optics, reckons Lumileds. Flood lamps that formerly required large optics now deliver the necessary brightness and range with smaller optics and off-the-shelf drivers.

The LUXEON MZ has a forward voltage of 11.2V, a small light-emitting surface of 4.2mm diameter, and an undomed design to deliver smaller beam angles. Lumileds is offering the emitter family across the full range of correlated color temperature (2700-6500K CCT) and color rendering index (70, 80, 90 CRI) options.
