Smallest light-emitting surface simplifies luminaire design

RS Components is stocking the newly launched Lumileds Gen-4 Luxeon COB LEDs enabling smaller, simpler luminaires to deliver bright and vibrant lighting.

With pace-setting efficacy of up to 170lm/W, the smallest LES, and package thermal resistance up to four times lower than other COB LEDs, lighting designers using Luxeon Gen-4 LEDs can create new styles featuring denser arrays, smaller optics, and simplified construction. In addition, colour consistency within a 3-step MacAdam ellipse gives freedom from binning to simplify component purchasing and luminaire production while ensuring uniform appearance from unit to unit.

High colour fidelity is another strong suit of the latest Gen-4 Luxeon COB LEDs, which have CRI of up to 90. Consistent rendering of all wavelengths makes them ideal for colour-critical lighting in areas such as such as retail displays, showrooms, healthcare centres, laboratories, and industrial-inspection areas. Applications like high-bay and low-bay lighting, downlights, spotlights, and architectural or general outdoor lighting can also benefit from the superior brightness, clarity and efficacy of Luxeon Gen-4 LEDs.

All units are hot-tested at 85°C, which gives an accurate indication of performance and reliability in real-world operating conditions and removes additional testing burdens from lighting manufacturers.

The Lumileds Gen-4 Luxeon COB LEDs are shipping now from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

Clarifying Machine Vision with High Quality Sensors
Automated imaging technology is everywhere we look. As cameras and their processing units get ever smaller, they are moving into ever more industries - from speed cameras and factory production lines to diagnostic medicine. For many of these applications, image quality is critical - but what does image quality really mean? Different applications will require quite distinct performance characteristics. Understanding camera specifications, differences between CCD and CMOS sensors, and features such as real-time processing or near-infrared (NIR) can help guide the camera selection process to produce better imaging results.
