Luxeon A, introduced this week is the latest illumination grade LED from Philips Lumileds that reduces the engineering effort required for new solutions and delivers Freedom From Binning. Luxeon A shares the Luxeon Rebel ES platform and footprint and incorporates a 2sq.mm thin film flip chip and Lumiramic phosphor technology to deliver the highest quality of light at 2700K and 3000K with very high efficacy and light output, says the company.

Luxeon A emitters fall within a single three-step MacAdam ellipse on the black body curve. The quality, uniformity, and consistency of the light from LED to LED relieves luminaire manufacturers and lighting designers of many of their long held concerns about the suitability of LED technology for illumination applications.

“We are intent on delivering illumination grade LEDs that improve the state-of-the-art in lighting. Our Luxeon LEDs are delivering performance that does not require sacrifices in the quality of light for homes, restaurants, shops, and other applications in pursuit of energy efficiency and reduced operating costs,” said Steve Barlow, senior VP sales and marketing.
