Lumileds Lighting LLC has released the Luxeon 5W white LED that provides an output of up to 120 lumensfour times the luminous flux of the company's previous products, and up to 60 times the output of competing devices.

The LED is also available in green, cyan, blue, and royal blue colors, with the blue device producing 30 lumens, while the green and cyan LEDs generate 130 lumens.

"Our Luxeon 5W [LED] offers new design possibilities for lighting manufacturers who wish to take advantage of the small footprint, energy savings and 100,000-hour life of solid state illumination," said Jason Posselt, Luxeon Worldwide Product Manager for Lumileds Lighting.

"With the ability to produce as much as 120 lumens from a single white emitter and more in some colors, designers can incorporate LEDs into a broader variety of products without the size and engineering complications of deploying multiple emitters to achieve the desired brightness," he added.

The Luxeon LED employs a clear-coat gel that the company claims resists significant lumen depreciation for at least 50,000h. The coating is also claimed to overcome the undesirable color variations and halo effects of other solid-state light sources, significantly improving the color consistency and beam quality of white light.

Available in a single-emitter configuration that is pre-mounted on an aluminum-core PCB, the Luxeon LED also offers full dimmability, instant illumination, beam control, minimum glare, low UV light for minimal fabric fading, and mercury-free operation.
