Lumileds launches record-efficiency multi-die emitter LUXEON MX for outdoor fixtures

LED maker Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has launched the LUXEON MX, a multi-die emitter that delivers what is claimed to be industry-leading efficiency and flux for outdoor fixtures and high-bay lighting applications.

The emitter's record 1200 lumen output (150lm/W luminous efficacy) at 85°C (at correlated color temperatures of 4000-6500K and a color rendering index of 70) enables a system efficiency of 120lm/W when driven at 700mA. "This is double the flux of comparable emitters in 120lm/W systems," claims LUXEON MX product manager Seth Danielson. "We have achieved this performance leap by optimizing the LED for improved efficiency at higher drive currents up to 1.5A with the 12V device," he adds.

Lumileds says that, with these developments, it has maximized emitter efficiency and lifetime. The LUXEON MX makes it possible for luminaire makers to meet the efficiency and quality requirements of the DesignLights Consortium (DLC) Premium V4.1 at 700mA and 85°C, it is reckoned. "By creating products eligible for the DLC Qualified Products List, cities and municipalities can receive rebates on their LED street lighting projects, while also realizing the fast return on investment from using the most efficient emitters," says Danielson. Also, the LUXEON MX leverages a new, robust package that increases the projected lumen maintenance compared with the LUXEON M. The LUXEON MX is an instant upgrade to the LUXEON M, featuring identical footprint and optical characteristics.

The LUXEON MX multi-die emitter will be offered in a range of color temperatures (3000-6500K) and CRIs (70, 80 and 90) in convenient 3V, 6V and 12V configurations. Applications include roadway lighting, street lighting, stadium lighting and high-bay fixtures.
