HERZEBROCK-CLARHOLZ, GERMANY AND SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA — Steinel, a
German manufacturer of intelligent lighting fixtures, has introduced its XLed range of
security floodlights powered by LUXEON Rebel LEDs that use one-third of the energy
consumed by conventional floodlights. The XLed is available as the XLed 25, with 25
LUXEON Rebel for very high luminous flux and total power consumption of about 60
watts, and the more compact XLed 10 with 10 LUXEON Rebel and total power
consumption of approximately 25 watts. Product details in English and German can be
found at http://www.steinel.de/en/produkte_fuer_fachkunden/neuheiten_fh/xled_25/.
To extend the energy-saving benefits of the
LUXEON-based XLed fixtures, Steinel
incorporated a wide-angle motion sensor for use in
security applications. An electronic control unit
switches the floodlight on instantly at full power
when a human body is detected, but turns it off
after a period of time or reduces light output to
10% of maximum, as decided by the user.
“The LUXEON Rebel LEDs are very temperatureresistant.
In product development we tested many
different LEDs, and we found that the Philips
Lumileds LEDs were the best for our application.
Thanks to this and to our design and
manufacturing expertise, we think we have the
best LED floodlight on the market,” said Thomas
Möller, Managing Director of Steinel.
The LUXEON Rebel white LEDs used by Steinel are ideally suited to the XLed, where
the requirement is for a bright and compact light source that delivers high efficacy and
offers a long operating lifetime. The LUXEON Rebel LEDs used in XLed are robust even
in the most demanding operating conditions. XLed is designed to operate at full power
for sustained periods and carries a warranty for a 50,000-hour operating lifetime – 45
years at three hours’ use per day.
Philips Lumileds leads the industry in the production of high-efficiency power LEDs, most
recently introducing the LUXEON Rebel ES, the world’s first power LED that is specified
to deliver 100 lumens per watt at 350 mA.
Steinel manufactures technology for people: intelligent lights and sensors that make our
lives safer and easier. ’Made by Steinel’ stands for user friendliness, great value for
money and, what's more important, a long service life. Since 1959, this approach has
allowed Steinel to become a market leader. Today, we develop and manufacture
products of world renown at 6 locations in Europe, to German quality standards.
