Luminus’ Gen 2 XH LED boosts output, efficiency, center-beam candlepower and CRI as alternative to metal halide
Luminus Inc of Billerica, MA, USA, which makes LEDs and solid-state light sources, has launched its Gen 2 XH Series chip-on-board (COB) LED array as a superior alternative to metal halide. With substantial increases in light output and density as well as color rendering index (CRI), the Gen 2 XH Series addresses the requirements of lighting designers and retailers.
Gen 2 XH is available in a four standard light-emitting surface (LES) diameters including 6, 9, 11, and 14mm. The CHM-6-XH20 (which has an LES of 6.3mm) has center-beam candlepower of 30,000, a beam angle of 8°, and typical lumen output of 1285lm. The CHM-9-XH20 (which has an LES of 9mm) has center-beam candlepower of 40,000, a beam angle of 10°, and typical lumen output of 2590lm. Center-beam candlepower is greater than a 35/70W metal halide. With fully qualified LM80 and TM21, lumen maintenance is certified to at least 50,000 hours at 85°C.
“The punch and light quality necessary to create dramatic visuals are now available from an LED package,” says David Davito, Luminus’ senior director of Global Product Marketing, Illumination. “Our Gen 2 XH will finally enable retail users to eliminate metal halide across the board,” he adds. “Along with our ‘below the black body’ Sensus COBs, our customers can now create a full portfolio of retail lighting solutions.”
Luminus Gen 2 XH products can be purchased now through Luminus’ global distribution network.
