RGB LEDs enhance energy efficiency, performance

The newly released 3-W TitanBrite RGB from Lumex Inc., a square-shaped SMT LED technology, combines superior color performance with both cost and real estate savings. The square shape of the 10 x 10 mm LED allows increased design efficiency with easier assembly and array formation opportunities. This feature is particularly useful for applications that require increased resolution for up-close viewing and for integration of dynamic, smaller images. The new technology is suited for a variety of applications including electronic signage, industrial controls, safety/security lighting, general illumination, graphic backlighting, accent lighting, and other applications that require bright, intense light and low power consumption.

In addition to the design benefits made possible by the square shape, RGB technologies provide several opportunities for enhanced efficiency. The use of a single TitanBrite LED can result in up to a 30% cost savings as well as a 70% real estate savings compared to the use of individual red, green, and blue packages. Replacing three parts with a single part number also simplifies ordering and maintenance processes.

RGB LEDs provide color rendering performance that is superior to traditional phosphor converted high-brightness white LED technologies. This enhanced color consistency is especially beneficial for lighting applications that require warm white light that closely matches incandescent lighting. RGB light allows for adjustable color tuning that not only can create shades of white, but almost every other color in the visible spectrum as well. The combination of the three colors in the same package with a flat epoxy lens creates a suitable product for sign makers that strive to match the view angle of every LED and color to give their products an even view angle throughout the entire sign.

The RoHS compliant TitanBrite RGBs contain three individual 1-W dies in red (636 nm), green (525 nm), and blue (470 nm). Samples of these devices are available from stock, with production quantities in 8 to 10 weeks. For more information, visit Lumex Inc., 290 E. Helen Rd., Palatine, IL 60067. Phone: (800) 278-5666.
