Lumileds is again improving LUXEON 5050 Round performance and is characterizing the LED for use in the horticulture industry. For illumination applications, 70 CRI lumen performance increases by as much as 5lm. In the case of a minimum 15,000 lumen streetlight, this equates to a 10% reduction in LEDs and significant cost savings.
According to Product and Marketing Manager Mei Yi, “High efficacy, high light output and corrosion resistance that outperforms others are key to the preference for LUXEON 5050. We’ve continued to invest in this LED platform, and as a result, our customers can continue to optimize their solutions and support sustainability while improving lighting.
The use of white light in horticulture applications continues to increase. The combination of efficacy, light output, and corrosion robustness makes LUXEON 5050 a perfect fit in this segment. These LEDs now deliver top-rated μmol/J and PPF (μmol/s) performance and long lifetime with CCTs ranging from 2200K to 6500K and CRIs of 70, 80, and 90 to better support the horticulture industry. Further, LUXEON 5050 Round offers hot-color targeting to ensure that the LEDs are within color target at application conditions of 85°C.
