Samsung LM561B LED Package Certified to Meet LM-80 Standard for High Lumen Maintenance
SEOUL, South Korea --(Business Wire)--
Samsung (News - Alert) Electronics Co., Ltd. announced today that the Samsung LM561B, a
high-efficacy mid-power LED package has been LM-80 certified. LM-80 is a
widely observed test for lumen maintenance developed and accredited by
U.S. Department of Energy's Energy Star program.
"Through the LM-80 standard testing, we have affirmed that our LM561B
package is an outstanding mid-power solution optimized for premium LED
lighting applications that demand high efficacy and reliability," said
Bangwon Oh, senior vice president of LED Lighting Marketing, Samsung
Electronics. "We expect that our LM561B product lineup will be even more
widely accepted for a variety of LED applications with this
Samsung LM561B completed 6000 hours of LM-80 testing, and among the test
results, TM-21 data demostrated an L70 of 93,000 hours under
a 150mA driving current at an operating temperature of 85 degrees
Celsius. This means that the Samsung LM561B will maintain at least 70
percent of the initial light output for a minimum of 93,000 hours, which
will make the LED light more amenable to applications that require a
high level of lumen maintenance.
The Samsung LM561B, which was introduced earlier this year, is designed
for LED lighting applications such as LED tubes, LED ambient lighting,
downlighting and retrofit lamps, and features 170lm/W light efficacy.
The LM561B product lineup offers a wide range of color temperatures and
comes in three brightness levels, while providing quarter binning to
better meet customer design needs.
