Lumileds delivers first hot-color-targeted mid-power LED, plus new 1/9th micro color binning

Philips Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA is introducing what it claims is the first mid-power LED with hot color targeting, which ensures that performance is compliant with ANSI specifications at real-life operating temperatures. The LUXEON 3030 2D is intended for high-flux applications such as retrofit bulbs, downlights, as well as high-bay and low-bay luminaires.

“Without hot color targeting, if a user purchases an LED that was performing on a bin edge at room temperature, it would likely shift out of the specification at application temperatures and cause an undesirable shift in color for the fixture,” says Mark Chang, senior product line manager of Mid-Power Products. Hot color targeting remedies this problem by targeting slightly above the black-body locus at room temperature. At application conditions, the color temperature remains within ANSI specifications.

The LUXEON 3030 2D is also being introduced with a new 1/9th micro color binning structure. Users can now accurately select 3- or 5-step MacAdam Ellipse for optimal color control. “Designers can also easily pair different bins to hit a 3/4/5 SDCM color point,” says Chang.

The LUXEON 3030 2D LED uses an epoxy molding compound (EMC) QFN package for reliability and lumen maintenance. Typical warm-white (2700K) performance is 87lm at a color rendering index (CRI) of 80 at 120mA. Cool-white efficacy reaches 133lm/W at 80 CRI and 120mA. When driven at the maximum drive current of 240mA, the LED can deliver 160lm at 6500K and 80 CRI.

“Depending on CCT, the lumen output of the LUXEON 3030 2D is 10-15% higher than previous-generation 2-die mid-power emitters,” notes Chang.
