Luxeon Rebel ES - world's first power LED specified for minimum 100 lm/W performance
Date Announced: 28 Apr 2009
-- High efficacy LED supports the nation’s energy innovation agenda and simplifies development of more energy efficient lighting solutions.
SAN JOSE, CA — Philips Lumileds today released LUXEON Rebel ES, the world’s first high-efficacy power LED specified to deliver a minimum of 100 lumens per Watt.
As the global demand for efficient lighting solutions increases, Philips Lumileds is focusing on the performance characteristics that are most important to the lighting industry. The company’s attention to efficacy makes it simpler to create solid-state lighting solutions that eclipse conventional solution efficiency in many applications such as outdoor and refrigeration.
“LUXEON Rebel ES meets two complementary objectives: extending the energy-saving ability of LED technology and simplifying LED product selection to make it easier for lighting designers to take advantage of those capabilities,” said Steve Barlow, Executive VP of Sales and Marketing at Philips Lumileds. “Both of these features will help the industry meet its energy reduction and sustainability goals.”
Creating energy efficient SSL applications is easier because, flux binning and forward voltage (Vf) binning selections are pre-determined to deliver 100 lumen per Watt efficacy. With one simple selection, color (CCT), lighting engineers can adopt LUXEON Rebel ES for their most efficient applications and begin reducing the energy required for many solutions.
LUXEON Rebel products are already known for their extremely small size, high-light output, long-useful life and ruggedness. LUXEON Rebel ES retains all these benefits while also offering:
• Specified 100 lumen per Watt performance.
• A path to minimizing energy consumption and reducing our carbon footprint.
• Simpler LED selection to speed design and manufacturing and to lower development costs.
• Robust performance over temperature to reduce efficacy and light output fluctuation.
These performance benefits are enabled by full implementation of Philips Lumileds’ thin film flip chip technology and the continuous improvement of epitaxial processes. Through these and other ongoing technology advances, the company continues to support the lighting industry’s need for brighter, more efficient, long-lasting power LEDs.
LUXEON Rebel ES is available from Future Lighting Solutions (www.futurelightingsolutions.com) with standard lead times. Future is the exclusive provider of LUXEON power LEDs and a strategic partner dedicated to making it easier for luminaire manufacturers to develop solid-state lighting solutions.
