Narrow-Band Phosphor Technology
Get uncompromised performance with our LEDs achieving over 200 lm/W at 90 CRI.
Narrow-band phosphor is a new phosphor technology that allows LED manufacturers to tightly control the spectrum of the LEDs and make sure that they have the right spectral content where it matters most, thus enabling an improvement in color rendering metrics without making tradeoffs that would reduce efficacy.
This revolutionary lighting technology can help OEMs:
Increase 90 CRI fixture efficacies
Reduce LED SKUs and inventory by only offering 90 CRI without incurring efficacy losses
Target more stringent certification, regulatory or customer requirements that are demanding 90 CRI
Benefits of narrow-band phosphor technology
Having to choose between high CRI or high efficacy is now a problem of the past. Lighting OEMs previously had to compromise on efficacy when offering high-CRI fixtures to their customers. Now with LEDs achieving over 200 lm/W at 90 CRI, you can benefit the best of both worlds. In addition, by only offering 90 CRI fixtures, lighting OEMs can reduce the number of SKUs and inventory on hand and benefit from greater economies of scale.
With that level of performance, along with strong LM-80 data supporting even the most demanding lifetime requirements with L90>36,000 hours, availability in a full range of CCTs from 2700K through 6500K, combined with 3-step and single Vf bin options available for the highest level of board to board and fixture to fixture consistency, narrow-band phosphor LEDs are the clear choice for any lighting OEM looking to gain a clear competitive advantage.
What products are available?
Narrow-band phosphor technology has been implemented in multiple LED families across several vendors, with plenty of options to choose from including mid-power 2835 and 3030 packages, as well as a broad line-up of COBs. Standard off-the-shelf linear boards with mid-power narrow-band phosphor LEDs are also offered, with half foot, 1ft, 2ft and 4ft options available.
Applications of narrow-band phosphor technology
Narrow-band phosphor technology has broad-market appeal and applicability, ideally suited for:
