GB interest list for Luxeon MZ 3V 5700K 90CRI (9080 Nichia rating)

I decide to make separate topic for LMZ9-QW57 MZ LED interest list, so please post the number of LEDs you'd like to buy when/if they become available.

 

Luxeon MZ LED is 4.0x4.2mm domeless LED with 4x 2mm^2 die surface area, and what makes it unique is that there is 3V variant, unlike any other multidie LED.

Also 5700K 90CRI version is quite unique too, it's quite rare to have high CCT and high CRI available.

5700K 90CRI version is capable of ~1500-1600lm at 6Amps, and  around 2800-2900lm at ~16Amps, with very low Vf, lower than any other 3V LED - great for long,steady high mode with linear (and buck) drivers.

For example, with 6A LD-B4 driver.MZ LED and Sanyo 3500mAh GA battery high mode will be regulated until battery voltage drops to ~3.2V, which means during 85% of battery discharge, this is as good as having average boost driver and 6V LED @3Amp, efficiency would be also similar, around 88%.

 

MZ measured by Koef3 here:

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/58421

One important note: Koef3 measured output with LED on XP noctigon board, there is possibility that output at high currents could be few % better on proper MCPCB with correct pad sizes.

Maukka tested this LED too, and results are pretty impressive, R9 CRI is 89, Ra is 95, overall tint quality is very nice:

http://budgetlightforum.com/node/60356

 

To conclude, MZ LED is highest power 90CRI 3V LED available on the market.

Its only disadvantage is multi-die separation, so there will be some "donut" hole if it's used with smooth reflectors or narrow spot optics.

OP reflectors and frosted/medium spot optics can fix that relatively easily, since gap is smaller than on XHP50/XHP70.

LED is domeless, which is good for small lights because throw would be still decent, effective LES is  similar to 4mm2  domed LEDs like CREE XM-L2,XP-L etc.

 

Bad news is that most distributors don't have full reel in stock,and if I want to order one reel, I have to wait for up to 12weeks until LEDs are produced.

Good news: MZ leds available form Mouser,Digikey,etc. can be quite old, MZ LED is released in 2015, so flux bin appear to be around typ. bin;  little birdie told me freshly produced LMZ9-QW57 reels have 20% chance to be Q flux bin (780-840lm at 85C),  and 80% chance to be R flux bin (840-900lm at 85C) laughing so there is a good chance reel will be R bin, which would be 1 or 2 bins higher than available LMZ9-QW57 LEDs.

 

Currently I have few boards (MZ footprint of is compatible with Luxeon V) for MZ LED, 16mm DTP, 20mm mosDTP, triple 20mm mosX, quad 20mm mosX, 38x2mm BLF Q8 DTP.

Soon I will have 31.5mm mosX2 triple and quad MCPCB for CUTE-3/4 optics, quad for ANGIE optics - all good for EE X6 host, and 7x for ANNA optics.

 

GB price is: 5,97€ per piece,

 After ~2 weeks I will close this interest list, and after that regular price will be 7,47€ when/if I got reel and put LEDs on my web shop.

 

Those who are on interest list will receive coupon(s) for my store to reduce price from 7,47€ to 5,97€ per piece (if GB happens) for MZ LED products.

Interest list:

NOTE: you only need to specify number of LEDs you are interested in, other details like would you like it as bare emitter,on xx mm MCPCB...etc is not important right now, you will receive coupon code(s) for my store for exact number of LEDs you mentioned here in topic, and when/if LEDs become available, you can use those coupons on MZ related products. Of course I will offer them on all compatible MCPCBs I have/will have.

I’d be interested in 2, if I can combine shipping with some other parts from your store.

Any plans on selling Luxeon V in 5700k in the future?

Thanks!

I forgot about BLF Q8 4040/5050 DTP pcb, it also can be used for quad MZ build, added to PCB compatibility list in OP.

5700K is currently only available in full reels, so it depends on interest.

Sorry, can you take me off the list? I was going to put these leds in my Q8 but decided to go with LH351D instead, so I’ll wait until you have those in stock.

I am interested in 0 MZs.

Edit: Sorry. I don’t want to buy them anymore.

I have enough LH351Ds for now.

I definitely want three, maybe even four. Do you think it would be possible to sand down one of those new triple pcbs and the Cute.3 optic to get it to fit in a p60 host (as part of a permanent “pill”)? When you get them in I will also want one of your drivers for a single-cell with temp sensor and the FET on the LED pcb.

I want them for a high-cri “shock and awe” light for super high currents (basically an internal resistance tester that also lights up nicely Evil ). Something really stupid that I don’t really need, but sometimes you just need a fun project.

Not sure how you are going to fit a 32mm mcpcb in a p60 host, since p60 hosts have around 26.5mm bezel diameter… However, here is a triple MZ that I made in a p60ish host using carclo optics: http://budgetlightforum.com/comment/1311591#comment-1311591 . The triple wasn’t that well received (I felt), but I like it. The mz leds built to a triple 32mm mcpcb plus cute optic would be very nice.

I don't see why you would want thermally inferior P60 host for very high power build, PCB will be 31.5mm in diameter and compatible with EE X6 host (I will have spacers and complete kit for conversion).

I’d be interested in 5 leds, if possible with 4 already soldered on an X6 quad pcb and one on a 16mm dtp one, but I’ll take them either way.

Because there are very good hosts for p60 pills which have “extreme” heat fins meaning lots of surface area. I own a Cryos M2 cooling “bezel” (head) which I have never had a suitable drop-in for. For a light like this I would think about using a fivemega cooly host though since it offers even more surface area, has a fixed head and is compatible with larger batteries.

These are rather expensive modding products which are in my opinion much better than standard, single-cell hosts from a cooling perspective.

The downsides of the p60 system can be worked around by using a special pill design.

The fins of the EE X6 host are not worth much, they are too small and too close together.

Interest list is closed, LEDs are odered (long time ago:)), when LEDs arrive members on list would receive store discount coupons for MZ products.
