Intematix Corporation, a Fremont, California-based innovator of patented phosphor solutions for LED lighting, announced the volume shipments of their remote phosphor component that enables 150W equivalent LED retrofit lamps. The new remote phosphor product for 150W LED retrofit lamps adds to the product family that already enables 40W, 60W, 75W and 100W bulb replacements with a similar omni-directional form factor. Intematix contends that this innovative form factor can deliver an incandescent-like 325 degree light distribution pattern.
“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 in which a separate phosphor component emits white light after the phosphor component is exposed to light from blue LEDs. Intematix asserts that this architecture enables a reduction in LED component count and costs. Furthermore, the company claims that lighting uniformity and consistency are also improved and supply chains are simplified. This specific new ChromaLit® Contour product from Intematix has a light bulb reference design that includes: 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. Intematix says that 150W equivalent LED light bulbs utilizing Intematix’s its ChromaLit remote phosphor technology are now available at major US retail outlets.
