LUXEON 5050: The original solution for outdoor lighting
On the sixth anniversary of Lumileds’ first 5050 LED, the company’s vision for a robust, quality package for outdoor and industrial applications has proven rock-solid with tremendous adoption worldwide.
Today, Lumileds once again increases the light output and efficacy of its LUXEON 5050 Round LED. Introduced in October of 2016, LED output and efficacy have increased by 14% to 693 lumens and 178 lumens per Watt at 4000K and 70CRI. Further, the portfolio has grown in breadth and is the only 5050 offering with a full array of CCT options at 70, 80, and 90 CRI.
“Sometimes the most obvious element is ignored even though it’s the most important factor for a system,” said Mei Yi, Product Manager. “A round light emitting surface is critically important if you want to achieve a symmetrical light distribution with pleasing uniformity and smooth transitions without jeopardising optical efficiency, lens design complexity, and cost.”
In fact, optical solution provider LEDiL lists more than 200 lens and reflector choices to address a wide variety of applications and design parameters.
Most extended and comprehensive LM80 tests
The LM80 report for LUXEON 5050 covers 17,000 hours of testing, and Lumileds provides customers with a comprehensive and detailed analysis of 16 different test items including: High Temperature Operating Life, Hydrogen Sulfide Test (15ppm H2S, 40C, RH 80%), and Temperature Cycle.
Lumileds also reports detailed flux, forward voltage, and colour maintenance data. Lumileds extensive testing of LUXEON 5050 Round allows it to confidently claim L70 and L90 above 100,000 hours.
The performance, efficacy, and reliability of LUXEON 5050 Round (24V and 6V) and the fact that it’s available in the full range of CCTs and CRIs mean that this LED is equally at home in indoor and outdoor applications where the quality of light, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness are driving design factors.
LUXEON 5050 Round is available through Lumileds global distribution network. Product information and datasheets can be found by visiting Lumileds.
