Luminus Introduces Gen 2 XH Series of LED Arrays

Luminus Devices, Inc., of Sunnyvale, California USA, announced the Gen 2 XH Series chip-on-board (COB) LED array.
The LED array boasts substantial increases in light output and density, as well as improved color rendering.

“The punch and light quality necessary to create dramatic visuals are now available from an LED package,” said David Davito, Senior Director of Global Product Marketing, Illumination. “Our Gen 2 XH will finally enable retail users to eliminate metal halide across the board. Along with our ‘below the black body’ Sensus COBs, our customers can now create a full portfolio of retail lighting solutions.”



According to Luminus, the LED array features a center beam candlepower greater than that of a 35W or even a 70W metal halide. The LED array also has an impressive CRI of up to 98 (nominally a minimum of 95) and comes in correlated color temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K. The array comes with a range of light emitting surface diameters of 6, 9, 11 or 14 mm.

Performance Specifications of Gen 2 XH Arrays

The instant on and instant restartable light source boasts a minimum of 50,000 hour LM80 and TM21 projected lifetime.
