NICHIA, an LED manufacturer and inventor of high-brightness blue and white LEDs, introduces its H6 series. Implemented into NICHIA’s 3030 mid-power 757 packages to start, the new family of LEDs delivers the highest multi-level boost in colour rendition and efficacy whilst maintaining the outstanding lifetime expected from NICHIA. Indeed, the H6 series delivers a colour rendering index (CRI) of 90 while maintaining a level of efficacy seen in standard CRI 80 LEDs. Regularly, lighting professionals have needed to sacrifice lumen efficacy when seeking elite colour quality in LEDs.
NICHIA’s latest LED family provides all-around performance for those luminaires targeting discerning environments, especially in shops, restaurants, hotels, and galleries/museum, and restroom settings where colour rendering and energy savings are imperative design considerations. The solutions are useful for general Illumination fixtures to boost the vividness of rich-coloured merchandise, artworks and furniture, set the mood, add accents or grab attention in retail and hospitality venues.
NICHIA’s new H6 series takes advantage of a unique red narrow-band phosphor technology, among other semiconductor processes and packaging techniques, to develop LEDs that achieve a colour quality.
Yuji Itsuki, General Manager of Marketing, NICHIA, said: “Generally speaking, there is usually a trade-off between achieving high lumen efficacy and a high CRI. By optimizing the light spectrum, NICHIA has made a technology breakthrough to deliver superior luminous efficacy and high CRI. The NICHIA brand has been at the forefront of lighting innovation for decades, and these new additions to the company’s LED portfolio are so exciting because they continue to offer unrivalled high-quality illumination, reliability and energy efficiency.”
