Lumileds launches LUXEON Fusion technology for white light tuning and selection with simplified fixture manufacturing process

Lumileds LLC of San Jose, CA, USA has launched LUXEON Fusion, a platform technology that delivers what is claimed to be unprecedented white color selection while streamlining fixture manufacturing.

Combining the needs of many tuning technologies, including dim to warm and dynamic tuning for human centric lighting, LUXEON Fusion addresses correlated color temperatures (CCTs) from 1800K to 10,000K with high color-rendering index (CRI >90 over 95% of range) and high color fidelity. Customers who previously were forced to rely on disparate solutions to achieve the desired results can now leverage the LUXEON Fusion platform technology, which unites white color selection, dim-to-warm capability, SKU reduction and dynamically tunable white lighting — all designed for mass adoption, in a single solution.

“LUXEON Fusion is really designed to open up color tuning for mass adoption in all indoor lighting environments because it offers superior dim-to-warm consistency down to 1800K, white light color choice, high efficiencies and consistent light output over dynamic tuning ranges,” says Steve Barlow, senior VP & general manager of Lumileds LED Solutions.

Human-centric lighting applications

When lighting hospitals, restaurants, offices or retail venues, designers often wish to adjust color temperature on-site or program it to adjust light levels throughout the day to complement a changing ambient environment. Available on the Lumileds Matrix Platform (which custom configures LUXEON LEDs and advanced technologies on substrates to fit manufacturers’ specific requirements), LUXEON Fusion can be integrated with a variety of wired and wireless approaches — e.g. Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI), Digital Multiplex (DMX), Wi-Fi — for on-demand tuning.

“White light tuning in the past was limited and could not, for instance, tune along the blackbody curve or just below the blackbody curve, a range that enables vivid color depiction,” notes Matt Everett, senior director of Matrix Platform Integrated Solutions. Programming in such ranges is enabled by LUXEON Fusion.

The first implementation of LUXEON Fusion involves modules for downlights, spotlights, troffers and linear applications — achieving system efficacy and color stability comparable to that of LUXEON LEDs. “We boosted LED utilization by 25-100% over standard two-LED or three-LED solutions, and achieve consistent light output over the tuning range — something customers value and other color tuning systems struggled to deliver,” says Greg Tashjian, senior director of R&D.

An advantage to LUXEON Fusion is more efficient fixture development. For example, a fixture that is offered with CCTs of 2700K, 3500K and 5000K, each with specific light engines and SKUs, can now utilize one engine for all the fixtures and CCT can be set later — even after fixture installation. Another use involves high-impact retail environments, where companies select a signature CCT and brand all stores worldwide with one color tone.

Lumileds is exhibiting LUXEON Fusion in booth #117 at the LIGHTFAIR International 2019 trade fair in Philadelphia, PA, USA (21-23 May).
