Steinel's XLed 25

Steinel's XLed 25 with LUXEON Rebel LEDs is a powerful floodlight solution.

HERZEBROCK-CLARHOLZ, Germany AND SAN JOSE, Ca. - Steinel, a German manufacturer of intelligent lighting fixtures, has introduced its XLed range of security floodlights powered by LUXEON Rebel LEDs that use one-third of the energy consumed by conventional floodlights. The XLed is available as the XLed 25, with 25 LUXEON Rebel for very high luminous flux and total power consumption of about 60 watts, and the more compact XLed 10 with 10 LUXEON Rebel and total power consumption of approximately 25 watts. Product details in English and German can be found at

To extend the energy-saving benefits of the LUXEON-based XLed fixtures, Steinel incorporated a wide-angle motion sensor for use in security applications. An electronic control unit switches the floodlight on instantly at full power when a human body is detected, but turns it off after a period of time or reduces light output to 10% of maximum, as decided by the user.

"The LUXEON Rebel LEDs are very temperatureresistant. In product development we tested many different LEDs, and we found that the Philips Lumileds LEDs were the best for our application. Thanks to this and to our design and manufacturing expertise, we think we have the best LED floodlight on the market," said Thomas Möller, Managing Director of Steinel.

The LUXEON Rebel white LEDs used by Steinel are ideally suited to the XLed, where the requirement is for a bright and compact light source that delivers high efficacy and offers a long operating lifetime. The LUXEON Rebel LEDs used in XLed are robust even in the most demanding operating conditions. XLed is designed to operate at full power for sustained periods and carries a warranty for a 50,000-hour operating lifetime - 45 years at three hours' use per day.

Philips Lumileds leads the industry in the production of high-efficiency power LEDs, most recently introducing the LUXEON Rebel ES, the world's first power LED that is specified to deliver 100 lumens per watt at 350 mA.
