AP Technologies announce that Lumex, Inc. have expanded their line of high-brightness LEDs with the release of the 3Watt TitanBrite RGB, a square-shaped SMT LED technology combining superior color performance with cost and space savings.
The 10x10mm TitanBriteRGB LED allows increased design efficiency with easier assembly and array formation opportunities—particularly useful for applications that require increased resolution for up-close viewing.
The RoHS compliant TitanBriteRGB combines three 1Watt die in red (636nm), green (525nm) and blue (470nm) and is ideally suited for a wide variety of applications such as electronic signs; industrial controls; safety, security and accent lighting; general illumination and graphic backlighting.
“The TitanBrite RGB LED was developed in response to growing marketing demand for high- brightness LED RGB technology,” explains Kay Fernandez, Manager of High Power Technology “Design engineers have become familiar with the superior color rendering of RGB LED technology, now they are looking for options that allow them to more efficiently take advantage of this superior performance.”
In addition to the design benefits made possible by the TitanBrite´s square shape, RBG technologies provide several opportunities for enhanced efficiency. The use of a single TitanBrite RGB LED can result in up to a 30% cost and 70% real estate savings compared to the use of individual red, green and blue packages. Replacing three parts with a single part number also simplifies ordering and maintenance.
RGB LEDs provide color rendering performance that is superior to traditional phosphor converted high-brightness white LED technologies. This enhanced colour consistency is especially beneficial for lighting applications that require warm white light that closely matches incandescent lighting. RGB light allows for adjustable color tuning that not only can create shades of white, but almost every other colour as well.
