Philips Lumileds has fully launched LUXEON M which is now in volume production. The new emitter has already been approved for street lighting in major US cities with designs to be shown at Light + Building. LUXEON M’s high lumen output—more than 1100 lumens— and typical voltage of 11.2V drives down system cost and improves system performance through the use of low cost, highly efficient drivers. The tremendous light output and efficacy at operating conditions lowers overall solution costs.

Solutions are simpler and use fewer parts and off the shelf drive electronics, optics, and thermal solutions that are readily available from Future Lighting Solutions. As a result, costs are lowered while optical control and the quality of light required for outdoor lighting is optimized.
“LUXEON M is a game changer and fundamentally improves the design and cost parameters of new solutions in much the same way LUXEON Rebel did in 2007,” said Rahul Bammi, VP of Marketing for Philips Lumileds. “Everything from the footprint to the drive requirements has been optimized based on hundreds of discussions with our customers, municipalities, and private property owners to ensure that LUXEON M exceeds their expectations and objectives.”
LUXEON M is offered in three different correlated color temperatures, 3000K, 4000K, and 5700K, and delivers more than 1100 lumens with a minimum CRI of 70. Every LUXEON M is Hot Tested and Specified at 85°C and delivers Freedom From Binning.
LUXEON M is immediately available from Future Lighting Solutions which also provides the full range of complementary components and solution assistance. The new products can be seen in both Lumileds and Future Lighting Solutions stands at Light + Building in April and LIGHTFAIR in May.
Philips Lumileds is a leading provider of LEDs for illumination solutions. Its LUXEON products deliver high light output, high efficacy and a more environmentally friendly light source, demonstrating its commitment to innovation.
