LUXEON Rebel Becomes First ‘UL Recognized' DC Power LED
August 27, 2009

Faster, simpler listing of new solid state lighting applications by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) has just become a reality with UL recognition of Philips Lumileds’ LUXEON Rebel LEDs – the first high power DC LEDs to earn UL Recognized certification. The recognition will speed time to market by making it possible to obtain UL Listed status for new luminaires built with LUXEON Rebel without requiring a full in-system LED component investigation. The certification will also facilitate ENERGY STAR acceptance, since luminaires must be UL Listed in order to be eligible for the ENERGY STAR label.

In addition, being UL Recognized will help bring increased efficiency to LED applications, such as street lights, by facilitating the use of Class 1 power supplies. The LUXEON Rebel lens meets the requirements to be considered an electrical enclosure under UL standards, eliminating the need for a full UL investigation that in the past has discouraged the use of more efficient Class 1 power sources.

UL approval is a de facto requirement for lighting products in the U.S. because it is required by key parties including municipalities, government agencies, architects and insurance companies.

“Most solid state lighting manufacturers that sell products in the U.S. require UL listing. Until now, the process has been very confusing,” said Rudi Hechfellner, Director of Applications at Philips Lumileds. “By using LUXEON Rebel, engineers can rely on clear direction from UL, shorten UL review cycles, and avoid unexpected issues that might arise in the luminaire certification process.”
