Intematix Introduces Remote Phosphor Product for 150W LED Retrofit Lamps

FREMONT, Calif., November 19, 2013 – Intematix Corporation, a leading innovator of patented phosphor solutions for high-quality LED lighting, today announced the volume shipments of their remote phosphor component that enables 150W equivalent LED retrofit lamps. This production release adds to the product family already enabling 40W, 60W, 75W and 100W bulb replacements all using a similar omni-directional form factor.

As global government regulations phase out incandescent lamps, these remote phosphor components streamline access to high quality, efficient lighting in these popular lumen output ranges for use in residential and commercial applications.  In addition, this innovative form factor delivers an incandescent-like 325 degree light distribution pattern in contrast to many LED replacement bulbs on the market.

“By applying this remote phosphor technology to the high end of the light bulb output range, we show 38% higher lumen output than bulbs available today,” said Julian Carey, Senior Director of Strategic Marketing at Intematix. “We are already seeing newly available, 2200-plus lumen LED light bulbs worldwide using this technology.”

Remote phosphor is a lighting system architecture where a separate phosphor component is powered by blue LEDs. LED light bulbs 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.  Intematix has launched this specific ChromaLit® Contour product with a light bulb reference design that includes the following features:

  • Three-way switching mode up to 2200 lumens
  • 2700K, 3000K & 5000K color temperature options
  • Standard color rendering options of 80 and 90CRI
  • 30 watts power consumption
  • 325 degree, omni-directional light meeting ENERGY STAR® requirements
  • Up to 25,000 hour lifetime

150W equivalent LED light bulbs utilizing Intematix’s patented ChromaLit remote phosphor are now available at major US retail outlets.  For more information go to
