High-voltage LED line delivers 27 percent more lumens per watt in smaller package

September 04, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Philips Lumileds has introduced the LUXEON H50-2 LED, one of the industry’s highest performing, high-voltage LEDs. With a typical efficacy of more than 80 lumens per watt, the LUXEON H50-2 improves on the efficacy of the existing LUXEON H 50V LED by 27%. Moreover, it offers 10% more lumens per watt and 30% percent higher luminous flux than leading competitive products, as well as lumen maintenance that exceeds rigorous ENERGY STAR requirements.

Designed for space-constrained, retrofit bulbs such as the popular A19, the LUXEON H50-2 has a small size and high- voltage architecture that enables more form factors and lowers costs through the use of cost-efficient drivers.

Unlike other high-voltage LED products, every LUXEON H50-2 LED is hot tested at 85 degrees Celsius to guarantee performance at operating conditions, and is color binned into three and five SDCM to ensure consistency among LED packages. In addition to A- line retrofits, the LUXEON H50-2 can drive down the costs of other space-constrained lamps such as candelabra and GU10 lamps. For specialty applications such as undercabinet, track and poultry lighting, LUXEON H50-2 has a smaller form factor that allows for even more streamlined solutions.

LUXEON H50-2 LEDs are available now from Future Lighting Solutions. For more information visit
