EdiPower II HM series and CA series

February 27, 2013 2:23 am | Edison Opto USA Corporation | Products

The leading LED lighting manufacture, Edison Opto launched all series COB products, such as 7~35 Watt high efficacy EdiPower II HR series and 3.5~30 Watt high brightness HS series in 2012. Recently, Edison Opto has also unveiled EdiPower II HM series and CA series for different operating powers and different colors. The 9~60 Watt EdiPower II HM series is based on the mirror-like MCPCB which features excellent reflectivity and luminous efficacy. Under 700mA, it can reach 3200lm in cool white (equivalent to 126lm/W). In addition, Edison Opto’s 3.5~7 Watt EdiPower II CA series is based on the ceramic substrate which can provide better thermal dissipation performance. Under 4 Watt (200mA), EdiPower II CA series can reach 385lm in warm white with CRI 80. Because the mirror-like MCPCB and ceramic substrate both contain no silver, EdiPower II HM series and CA series can free from the appearance of sulfuration. Consequently, it increases the reliability of EdiPower II HM series and CA series.The high performance COB products can be applied in many fields such as LEDs light bulb, down lights, track lights, residential lighting and commercial lighting fixtures.
