Philips Lumileds debuted a mid-power LED, the LUXEON 3535 HV. The company
says that the high voltage LED allows lighting manufacturers to design in high
voltage drivers that are smaller compared to standard drivers for a simplified
design and have a lower total cost of the overall lighting solution. The
company’s high voltage mid-power portfolio is available in 24V and 48V
“The advantage of designing in high voltage LEDs is that they
utilize drivers containing on average less than 20 components, relative to
standard LED drivers that can contain up to 50 components. As a result, the
total BOM cost can be reduced, and the amount of inventory they need to carry
to design the driver is minimized,” said Michael Howley, product
manager at Philips Lumileds.
The Luxeon 3535 HV can be used in space constrained lamps such as retrofit
bulbs, downlights, wall sconces, wall packs, and pendant luminaires.
“We’re finding that manufacturers of wall packs, wall sconces
and pendants in many different regions of the world are interested in high
voltage LED technology and the design simplicity it affords,” said
Philips Lumileds provides LM-80 data for its 24V and 48V LUXEON 3535 HV
LEDs. The LEDs are offered with a 1/9th micro color binning structure with 3-
or 5-step color accuracy. At 48V and 20mA the LED has typical lumen output of
120lms and 125 lm/W at a color temperature of 4000K and 80 CRI. The 24V version
of the LED at 20mA produces 60 lm at 125 lm/W at a color temperature of 4000K
and CRI of 80.
