Luminus Devices, Inc., today announced the CST-90 white PhlatLight® LED, the newest addition to the PhlatLight LED family of products developed for fixture manufacturers in the general lighting industry. The CST-90 white PhlatLight LED enables lighting fixture OEMs to replace bulbs and LED arrays with a single large, LED, resulting in simplified designs, lower costs and faster time-to-market. The PhlatLight CST-90 comes in a connectorized chip-on-board package with standard mounting features that make it easy to integrate and is simple to service and upgrade even after the fixture has been installed.
“In a direct response to the growing needs of lighting fixture designers, the CST-90 white PhlatLight LED offers excellent system flexibility, reliability and efficiency,” said Dave Sciabica, head of the Lighting Business Group at Luminus Devices. “With the introduction of the CST-90, Luminus is redefining solid-state lighting system design conventions by offering fixture designers a single light source alternative to common LED arrays.”
The light emitting surface of the CST-90 is a single, monolithic die that is nine square millimeters in size and integrates seamlessly with industry standard optics. The CST-90 produces 1,000 lumens with 10 watts input (at 6,500K) and 2,750 lumens at its maximum rated drive current. PhlatLight LEDs are mercury-free and highly reliable and have a lifetime of 60,000 hours with lumen maintenance of greater than 70 percent. The CST-90 is ideally suited for general lighting applications, including architectural, retail and residential lighting as well as wide area street and parking lot lighting.
The CST-90 will be available for sampling at the beginning of March with production volume shipments starting in the second quarter of this year.
