Intematix Introduces ChromaLit Linear Remote Phosphor for LED Lighting

Intematix Corporation of Fremont, California USA, a manufacturer of phosphor
solutions for LED lighting, announced the commercial availability of ChromaLit®
Linear, a remote phosphor. Remote phosphor is a lighting system architecture in
which blue LEDs power a separate phosphor component. Intematix claims that LED
lighting applications that use this architecture increase their light
extraction and reduce LED component count and costs. Lighting uniformity and
consistency are also said to be improved.

According to Intematix, the ChromaLit® Linear, a remote phosphor offers
uniform luminance over any length, high flux density and a sleek, white
off-state finish. This product received the Lux Award by Lux Magazine for Light
Source Innovation of the Year and recognition by the Illuminating Engineering
Society (IES) in its Progress Report featuring the most promising new lighting
products.

Intematix points out that office lighting and other commercial applications
have been challenging for white LEDs previously because of the need to diffuse
the point sources results in reducing system efficacy. However, Intematix
asserts that the ChromaLit Linear product delivers naturally uniform, high
quality light with conversion efficacy of up to 215 lumens per radiant watt or
up to 163 lumens per system watt when used with the most efficient blue LEDs
available.

“ChromaLit Linear transforms industry thinking about LED linear
lighting and remote phosphor,”
said Julian Carey, Senior Director of
Strategic Marketing at Intematix. “We can forget about low efficacy
and pixelation because this product enables high light output, smooth
uniformity, white off-state and new possibilities for applications from
under-cabinet to troffers to high bay lighting.”

The ChromaLit Linear remote phosphor solution can be made for the required
length. Surface lumen density scales from 500 to 2500 lumens per linear foot.
Intematix has also improved the off-state appearance and illumination quality
of remote phosphors. ChromaLit Linear offers 3 SDCM color consistency standard
and color temperature options from 3000K to 5000K and CRI of 80. Samples of
ChromaLit Linear are available now from Intematix, and production quantities
are available with standard lead times.
