Philips Lumileds last week announced immediate availability of its breakthrough LUXEON Rebel phosphor converted amber (PC Amber) LED. The new LUXEON Rebel sets performance standards for color stability and light output performance.
Users will see 2-5 times more light output and dramatically less color shift compared to typical amber LEDs. LUXEON Rebel PC Amber delivers typical flux of 70 lumens at 350mA. This performance enables solution and application providers to reduce the number of LEDs used, the cost per lumen, overall system costs, and simplify the solution manufacturing process.
With better efficiency and more light output, LUXEON Rebel PC amber makes it that much easier to reduce energy consumption with an environmentally friendly product.”
Automotive applications, such as those for braking and signaling, use significant numbers of amber LEDs. With LUXEON Rebel PC Amber, manufacturers will be able to use fewer LEDs and lower other component costs because of the improved light output and particularly the stable color over temperature, something that has been problematic for many auto manufacturers.
Philips Lumileds expects full automotive qualification later this year.
