LED maker Lumileds of San Jose, CA, USA has added to its mid-power family of LEDs by launching the LUXEON 3030 2D with a square light-emitting surface (LES), which is specifically optimized for high flux and maximum reliability in general lighting applications including downlights, high-bay & low-bay fixtures and outdoor lighting.

Supplied in a 3.0mm x 3.0mm SMD package, the LUXEON 3030 2D uses two emitters in series to deliver luminous flux of more than 110lm at a warm-white correlated color temperature (CCT) of 2700K and 80 CRI (120mA, 6V). At a cool-white color temperature of 6500K, the performance increases to over 120lm at 80 CRI (maximum drive current of 240mA).
Flux performance is significantly improved over the company’s existing LUXEON 3030 2D LED, which has a round LES. Existing customers will still have access to the LUXEON 3030 2D with the round LES, which has been adopted widely for downlight, industrial and A-lamp applications in particular.
“With the new LUXEON 3030 2D, we are able to offer the industry’s highest flux in a two-die mid-power package, but also our hot-color targeted approach ensures superior color accuracy,” claims product manager Mei Yi.
With hot-color targeting, components deliver specific chromaticity coordinates at the targeted operating temperature of 85°C, resulting in minimal color shift in real-world operating conditions. Offered over the full range of ANSI CCTs, the emitter is 1/9th ANSI micro-color binned for tight color control.
Both LM-80 and TM-21 data are available for the new LED.
