Award Winning Product Enables Fluorescent Replacement in Commercial and Industrial Lighting
FREMONT, Calif., December 5, 2013 – Intematix Corporation, a leading manufacturer of phosphor solutions for LED lighting, today announced the commercial availability of ChromaLit® Linear, a remote phosphor offering uniform luminance over any length, high flux density and a sleek, white off-state finish. This product received the Lux Award by Lux Magazine for Light Source Innovation of the Year and recognition by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) in its Progress Report featuring the most promising new lighting products.
Remote phosphor is a lighting system architecture where a separate phosphor component is powered by blue LEDs. LED lighting applications use this architecture and the increased light extraction it enables to reduce LED component count and costs. Lighting uniformity and consistency are also improved and supply chains are simplified.
Linear light sources are in widespread use for illuminating commercial and industrial applications worldwide. Office lighting and other commercial applications have been challenging for white LEDs previously because of the need to diffuse the point sources, reducing system efficacy. The ChromaLit Linear product delivers naturally uniform, high quality light with conversion efficacy of up to 215 lumens per radiant watt or up to 163 lumens per system watt when used with the most efficient blue LEDs available.
“ChromaLit Linear transforms industry thinking about LED linear lighting and remote phosphor,” said Julian Carey, Senior Director of Strategic Marketing at Intematix. “We can forget about low efficacy and pixelation because this product enables high light output, smooth uniformity, white off-state and new possibilities for applications from under-cabinet to troffers to high bay lighting.”
The ChromaLit Linear remote phosphor solution offers flexibility of length. Surface lumen density scales from 500 to 2500 lumens per linear foot and the system presents new design directions not possible with fluorescent and white LEDs. Intematix has also changed how designers think about remote phosphor because ChromaLit Linear has dramatically improved the off-state appearance and illumination quality. ChromaLit Linear offers 3 SDCM color consistency as standard and color temperature options from 3000K to 5000K and CRI of 80.
Samples of ChromaLit Linear are available now from Intematix and production quantities are available with standard lead times. For more information, please contact your sales representative or visit www.intematix.com.
