Our Professional LED strips

Professional LED strips with Nichia, Samsung or Toshiba LEDs

Our Professional LED Strips Quality difference

Our professional LED Strips use LEDs from LED market leaders and are made in Germany.

We develop and produce our LED strips at a state of the art facility in Germany, with the highest quality standards and by using only LEDs from market leaders such as Nichia, Samsung or Toshiba. 

  • Nichia is the LED market leader, with over 25% market share and decades of experience. Nichia researchers invented the blue and white LED production technology, also receiving the Nobel Prize for this achievement. Nichia LEDs are the most efficient (200 lm / w efficacy), durable (> 100,000 hours) and are also available with unique technologies such as Optisolis, CRI98+ natural light spectrum and Rsp0a, special white light for horticulture.
  • Samsung is in the top 10 of global LED manufacturers and a well-known brand, renowned for the high performance of its products combined with the competitive price
  • Toshiba is a Japanese conglomerate with a history of more than a century, now specialized in semiconductors, electronics and hardware, with nearly 20,000 employees and an annual turnover of 40 billion USD. Toshiba has built the TRI-R technology and built the LED chips used in SunLike CRI97+ LEDs produced by Seoul Semiconductor in South Korea. With the new SunLike™ TRI-R™ technology from Toshiba-SSC (Seoul Semiconductor) and our strips and modules you can always enjoy a natural light source with the light spectrum very close to the sun.

We are a specialist in high performance LED strips and modules. As part of the early success of LEDs we have extensive application knowledge from a wide range of sectors. Since 2010, we have developed and produced our LED strips in a state-of-the-art production facility in Germany. Our strips have been used successfully in a wide range of application and developed specifically to meet customer specifications in Europe, Asia or America.

The difference between the quality and performance of our professional LED strips and low budget LEDs strip is evident from the first power on, and in time the gap increases even more.

Our strips and modules:

  • Use LEDs from top brands
  • Perfectly match in real world applications the performance values in their datasheet
  • Have 100.000 hours lifetime*
  • Function perfectly at high temperatures that would destroy many other LEDs
  • The LEDs used have 10.000 hours lifetime L80, TM21 tests**
  • Come with a 7 years warranty***
  • Have the best luminous efficacy, including at high temperature
  • Can have a luminous flux up to 8000lm or the heighst CRI on the market CRI98+
  • Use professional grade PCB for best resistance, current flow and heat transfer

1) Nichia LEDs have the best lumen maintenance on the market

Most professional LED strips on our offer use Nichia 757G LEDs.

After 10,000 hours of operation, a Nichia 757G LED has the best lumen maintenance, keeping 97% of the first light at high operating temperatures. The Unrivaled durability comes from the unique package design and high quality of the used materials, Nichia being also the manufacturer of the chemicals in the LED component.

In fact, a Nichia LED strip will run in most cases for over 100,000 hours, after which it will lose only 20% of its luminous flux. 100,000 is a very long period, at least 10 years of operation without stopping in a shopping center or decades of daily use in the place.

To keep the cost low, a low budget LED uses a weak design and low quality materials, resulting in 60% loss of initial power in less than 10,000 hours. In just 1000-3000 hours, that can pass in months, a strip with such LED is too dim for its original purpose and has to be replaced.

Luminous flux stability for the Nichia 757G LEDs is supported by 10,000-hour tests, according to the LM-80 standard. Lifetime (light at 80%) is calculated according to TM-21, both of which are internationally recognized standards and used by all major manufacturers.

2) 3 Macadam Elipse sorting for uniform white light, LEDs in a batch of the same shade of white that it keeps in time

On our professional strips all LEDs have the same color temperature as all LED strips in a delivery. Uniformity is also maintained on a future order. The reason is that we use only LEDs with the 3 Macadam Elipse sorting standard.

The phenomenon of shifting white color temperature after many hours of operation is not visible for our professional LED strips (for example, those with the Nichia 757G) because we use only the best of LEDs, like Nichia 757G.

In contrast, for cheap LEDs, a post-production LED sorting standard is not used as it increases the price. Thus, on a tape and / or from one reel to another one can see many shades and light intensities. The requirement that the next order has similar color temperature is impossible to accomplish. Moreover, after just a few thousand hours, each inexpensive LED changes its hue and looses brightness independent of what happens to others on the strip.

A Nichia LED uses the 3 Step Macadam Elipse sorting standard and keeps the same color temperature in time

3) The highest luminous flux with the lowest energy bills: LEDs are up to 5 times more energy efficient

Depending on the technology used, LEDs may have a different light output for the same power consumption. The difference in light efficacy (lumens per watt) from one LED to another may be 500% and has a very high influence on the production price.

The Nichia 757G LEDs used in most of our professional strips have the highest light efficacy on the market, of more than 200 lumens per watt compared to an inexpensive LED that has around 50 lumens per watt.

In fact, one meter of our professional LumiFlex LED strip can be as bright as up to five meters from a low-cost LED band 3528 or 5050 at the same power consumption.

After 10,000 hours, our professional LED strip will become as bright as up to 10 meters from the cheap LED strip due to the degradation of the latter's luminous flux.

Nichia LEDs are much brighter for the same power consumption

4) Natural Colors: LEDs have the best light quality, with a spectrum similar to daylight

The purpose of a light source is to reproduce the natural light, with direct connection with the way our eyes perceive colors. The CRI index is the best known method to express the attribute of the light source to be of the same quality as the sunlight, in which case the CRI value will be 100.

In a light source with CRI of less than 80, colors are no longer perceived correctly, a phenomenon that is pronounced at CRI 70 or less. For example, a pure red material seen in the daylight can seem as a red-brown in the light of an LED with CRI 65.

In addition, LEDs with a CRI of less than 70 can be tiring for the eyes, causing headaches or even mild dizziness.

The professional LED strips in our offer have the highest CRI on the market, with CRI98+ for Optisolis Nichia LED strips and CRI97+ for SunLike Toshiba LED strips. The other strips in our offer have CRI in the 80 to 95 range.

The low budget LEDs on the market have CRI of 70 or less and their light greatly distorts color shades, especially warm colors such a red, orange or brown.
