LAS VEGAS, Nv. - Luminus Devices, developer and manufacturer of high light output 'big-chip' LEDs, today announced it is collaborating with several manufacturers of tactical flashlights used by military, law enforcement, fire fighters, rescue personnel, campers and hunters. Manufacturers include JetBeam, Lemax, Microfire, Olight, Thrunite, Trustfire, Ultrafire and Wolf-Eyes.

The flashlights utilize the company's SST-50 big-chip LEDs being rapidly adopted by manufacturers of lighting devices for both professional and personal use. In addition to the tactical flashlight market, big-chip Luminus LEDs are ideal for retail and residential track lighting, PAR/ MR replacement lamps, high bay/low bay commercial and industrial lighting and outdoor area lighting including roadway and acorn fixtures.

The SST-50 is a high lumen output single-source LED, with input power of 5 watts and has energy efficiencies in excess of 100 lumens/watt, color temperatures ranging from 3,000K-6,500K and L70 lumen maintenance of 60,000 hours.

"Luminus is excited about working with our partners in the tactical flashlight market as SST-50 big-chip LEDs are superior to traditional high intensity discharge lamp solutions being used in today's reflection systems," said Keith T.S. Ward, president and CEO, Luminus Devices. "Big-chip LEDs provide flashlight manufacturers with a new, long-lasting, solid-state lighting solution that is ideally suited for future innovative products currently in the research and design phase."
