Samsung’s LED packages and modules with over 90 CRI will be commercially available in June.
In the past, Samsung LED always is up to 80. now Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced that it has improved the light quality of its LED packages and modules based on a 90 CRI (Color Rendering Index) for use in advanced lighting applications. Samsung is showcasing these LED components at the LIGHTFAIR International trade show exhibition being held here from June 3rd through 5th.
This move apparently increase the compete advantage among led suppliers.
“With our improved color rendering, Samsung’s LED packages and modules now provide LED lighting makers with light quality that far surpasses that of conventional lighting applications, while adding to the energy efficiency of our LED lighting line-up,” said Bangwon Oh, senior vice president of strategic marketing team, LED Business, Samsung Electronics. “With more than 90 CRI, the enhanced color reproducibility of our best product platforms will make them even more attractive to lighting designers worldwide.”
Samsung’s LED product platforms include mid-power, high-power and chip-on-board (COB) packages as well as LED module. With the improved CRI, Samsung LM561B and other mid-power LED packages can be used in a wider range of retrofit LED bulbs and downlights by reproducing colors comparable to those seen under natural sunlight. In addition, the improved high power LED LH351 series is suitable for MR, PAR and other spotlights that require high color rendering, along with high light output.
Samsung’s LED modules enhanced with 90 CRI include the LT-A302 module comprised of mid-power LED packages, and the SLE series, which uses COB-type packages. The LT-A302 is a linear, lens-attached module (LAM) with a thin, 21 millimeter-wide form factor. The SLE series modules are suitable for spotlights and track lighting that prioritize high light output.
