Samsung releases new LED package with improved light efficacy, color rendering

The LM301B EVO offers the industry's highest efficacy of 235 lumens per watt (lm/W) by using a new reflective material inside the packaging mold, according to Samsung.
The company also managed to fine tune the red spectrum in the LED's phosphor mix to deliver enhanced color quality.

It will be released in two lighting modules with the Q-series EVO for indoor lighting at offices and schools, and the H inFlux EVO for high–ceiling applications at factories and warehouses.
Samsung said the LM301B EVO will allow luminaire manufacturers to create lamps that meet the Grade A certification of the European Union's energy-related products directive (ErP) and the V5.1 premium requirements from Design Lights Consortium (DLC), a nonprofit organization for lighting standards in the United States and Canada.
According to market researcher TrendForce, the global lighting LED market is expected to top US$6.7 billion in revenue this year, up 3.43 percent from a year earlier.
