30-V lighting LEDs at 0.5W and 1W outputs

July 28, 2014 // By Graham Prophet
The XI3030 High Voltage series is an addition to Everlight’s XI3030 mid- to high-power LED package, with which Everlight aims to reduce manufacturers’ total lamp or fixture costs.

The XI3030 HV LED is a half to full watt LED that has a 30V version available, with other voltages upon request. High Voltage LEDs, when used correctly, simplify driver designs by reducing the voltage difference between the AC input line voltage of the completed product and the DC input voltage to the LED components. This not only reduces the number and cost of driver components needed but improves driver efficiency. Thus producing a more efficient, more cost effective total solution.

The XI3030 HV series meets all application requirements and achieves an efficiency of around 120 lm/W at 3000K CCT, 80 Ra minimum and 115 lm brightness. It is available either with 7-step ANSI-bin or 3-step central bin. Reliability testing has undergone up to 3000 hours internally at Everlight and LM80 is under way. The XI series High Voltage LED can be used in different cluster configurations in applications such as LED bulbs, LED lamps, LED down lights, and LED flood lights to optimise cost versus performance of each of those applications.
