Philips Lumileds has introduced a new compact COB LED array with a small 6.5 mm light-emitting surface that is ideal for spotlights. The small Luxeon CoB 1202 array boasts the highest center beam candle power available. The company says that its small size makes it perfect for PAR and other directional lamps. The Luxeon CoB 1202s is also available with Philips Lumileds' CrispWhite Technology, which the company says produces a high color rendering index and for rich whites, vibrant reds and other colors.
“The 1202s lifts the bar even higher by producing light output in a smaller, 6.5 mm LES that was only possible previously in 9 mm LES arrays. In addition, the 1202s does so with a superior CBCP, delivering 65,000 candelas at a 10˚beam angle,”said Ahmed Eweida, product manager for the Luxeon CoB line.
The company first introduced its CrispWhite Technology for retail lighting in July 2014.
“The response has been tremendous. Shop owners and their customers clearly prefer LED lighting with CrispWhite over CDM and halogen,”said Eric Senders, Product Line Director.
The Luxeon CoB range including the 1202s is available in a very warm, 2200K version for applications requiring a candlelight-like glow. Philips Lumileds says lighting designers are using the Luxeon CoB 1202s to produce highly reliable directional lamps. The company has published a full list of compatible drivers, optics and holders to help speed the time-to-market for downlights and spotlights.
