Lamina, Inc. has announced the release of two new LED light engines with outputs as bright as many traditional bulbs.
TitanTurbo™ is immediately available to lighting application designers in two models: a 3000°K "warm white" version equal in light output to the widely used 75-watt halogen PAR-30 and equally popular 100-watt R-20 flood lights and a 4700°K "daylight white" (cool) model twice as bright.
Both products will be unveiled and demonstrated this week in Milan, Italy at Euroluce. They will also be shown at LightFair International 2007 in New York City May 8-10.
The TitanTurbo delivers more than 2,000 lumens in daylight white and more than 1,000 lumens in warm white light, these LED light engines offer unsurpassed performance for all general lighting applications. The TitanTurbo Warm White has an enhanced red and orange color spectrum that makes it ideal as a halogen or incandescent replacement.
While advances in solid state lighting have been very rapid, until now, the brightest commercially available LED light sources have only been able to rival the light output of a 20-30 watt tungsten accent lamp.
"The light emitted by most white light LED products currently on the market is 'cool' in terms of color temperature—similar to most mercury vapor fluorescents," explains Frank M. Shinneman, Lamina's president and CEO. "That's fine for many applications like lighting offices, but it's not the 'warm white' light we want in the living areas of our homes, restaurants and other intimate environments."
They feature a standard 60º-beam pattern with additional wide, medium and narrow optics available. An integral EZ-Connect™ board eliminates the need for soldering and the metal base of each is electrically isolated, allowing wiring in parallel or series on a common heat sink. Both models feature integrated protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD) and superior thermal performance, resulting in long life, high lumen maintenance and outstanding reliability.
