Luminus launches third-generation COBs with up to 170lm/W efficacy

Luminus Inc of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, which makes LEDs and solid-state light sources, has launched a third-generation family of chip-on-board (COB) LED arrays with what is claimed to be record luminous efficacy and quality of light.  The new product family has typical performance of 150 lumens per Watt efficacy at a correlated color temperature (CCT) of 3000K, color rendering index (CRI) of 80+ and junction temperature Tj of 85°C for use in indoor applications and 170 lumens per Watt at 6500K, 70CRI, 85°C for outdoor applications.  

Luminus claims that, with this third-generation launch, it has eclipsed its major competitors who have recently announced their own new generations of COBs with lower performance. The new COBs deliver up to 20% higher efficacy than previous second-generation products by leveraging the firm's latest high-performance packaging technology and premium chips manufactured by Luminus' parent company San'an. With volume production starting in May, Luminus will offer its full range of CCT and CRI combinations, including 95+ CRI Accuwhite and Sensus below-black-body products.

"We have accelerated our COB performance roadmaps to deliver industry-leading efficacy, which enables customers to build new luminaires and retrofit bulbs with higher CRI, more flux, and lower thermal loads," says senior product marketing director David Davito.

The third-generation COB family is available in a wide range of CCT and CRI combinations, and light-emitting surface diameters including 9mm, 11mm, 14mm, 18mm, 22mm and 27mm. As with all Luminus COB products, the third-generation family is 100% specified and tested at 85°C to guarantee hot performance in both indoor and outdoor applications.

Luminus is exhibiting its third-generation COBs and other new illumination light sources in Hall 4.2 Stand H04 at the Light+Building 2016 trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany (13-18 March).
