WTS/GB: [Important Update] GT-FC40 (a.k.a. XHP70's flattop, 12v 40w sister) 95 CRI, Available in 4000k, 5000k

Following the discussion on http://budgetlightforum.com/node/68689

Djozz's test: http://budgetlightforum.com/node/68899 

 

Meet the GT-FC40, the domeless sister of the XHP series. The one in the picture (on the left) is a 40w LED 5000-5500k (I'd say 5300k) that produces up to 3200lm at 95 CRI.

The one on the right is CREE's XHP70.2 5000k 90 CRI.

 

Specs (5000-5000k version)

Voltage: 12-14v (13.3v @ 3.0A)

Current: 3.0A (may tolerate above 3.5A, but not recommended) -- Djozz's test indicated that the LED may survive up to 7A (92W) for a few minutes with proper cooling

Output: 3000-3200lm (at nominal current)

CRI: 95+

Construction: Flip-chip blue LED, Silicone-based phosphors

MCPCB: 20mm star

 

 

The one above is on A5 bin (5000-5500k), but A4 bin (4000-4500k) is also available.

 

Anyone who are interested can sign up here, specify the amount and color. You can sign up for both colors, of course.

 

for example:

  • A5 bin 2pcs, A4 bin 3pcs.
  • 4000k 2pcs, 5000k 2pcs.

The regular price will be $12/ea, but if a color has the total order of at least 45pcs, OR at least 80 pcs for both color combined, the price for the people in the list will be $11/ea (the discount only applies to the color you signed up with).

 

I am targeting at least 35pcs/color or 60pcs total before it's financially viable for me to buy.

 

The minimum you can buy is 1pcs, but you can contribute to lower pricing for everyone here by pushing the total. There are two methods of shipping: $4.5 Standard (Tracked, 2-4 weeks delivery time), $1.5 Economy (Untracked, 2-8 weeks delivery time *use at your own risk*).

Payment via Paypal (will tell you in the PM after I made the bulk order). You will be responsible for Paypal/Bank surcharges and Import Tax.

 

Be responsible, I'm presuming that everyone signing up here are reasonably determined to buy. My motivation to find more stuffs in Alibaba depends on the success of this GB.

 

Update: BlueSwordM has now taken over the selling & payment aspect of the GB.

Until further notice, he will henceforth be responsible for collecting payments and shipping to participants.

The interest list below has also been transferred to his list. Anyone interested can now head over to BlueSwordM's GB page to sign up. http://budgetlightforum.com/node/67401

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I have an important update over the situation -- You will probably want to read this

I asked the manufacturer about the tint control. They said that they might not be able to control the tints well enough and can only guarantee <6 SDCM color matching.

SDCM technically confines within A4/A5 bin, but that itself is a rather large area so some of you might actually get fairly yellow ones. I asked them if they can group them, which they could. However, I must pay the labeling cost.

The binning will separate the LEDs with <4.5 SDCM from the ones outside. This extra label cost itself is pretty substantial and will render partnership with BSM no longer financially viable for either party, if I keep the price of the “best bin” at $11-$12

If I go through the binning process and sell this myself. I will send the better binned LEDs to the participants and may perhaps sell the "rejected bin" for the cheaper price of $8.0 – 8.5 to cut loss.

It's really a pity that they don't have good control on colors on the would-be-otherwise a perfect LEDs for someone here.

I want to hear your thoughts on this. Whether 6 SDCM is acceptable for you or should I go through the binning process.

 

The sub-binning will not happen

I wonder if these will be available in different MCPCB sizes.

Probably not in the near future. They seems to be only have 20mm MCPCB in stock for now.

Bumping because I’m surprised this hasn’t taken off a little bit more. Innocent

12V and no testing is a pretty big barrier to entry. We are watching no worries Smile

The 3A limit is also a possible issue if it truly can’t handle anymore then that. That could be a real issue with using FET drivers which would make it even harder to use these.

I quoted 3.0-3.5 A from the manufacturer’s spec sheet. I have no idea how much it can take more than that due to the lack of testing equipment. I sent the samples to djozz for this purpose.

In comparison, the 12v version XHP70.2’s are rated at 2.4A as the absolute maximum, yet I saw people overdrive the hell out of it.

These FC-40 can probably survive well above 3.5A (at least for a short period), but I probably don’t want to take responsibility for that claim. Wink

Anyway, djozz has gotten samples, and I hope he publishes the result soon. Keep an eye on the discussion thread.

I thought it strange that the limit would only be 0.5A more then the rating.

Clemence had problems placing four E21a’s too close together, some of the photons would go out the side of the emitter and heat up the one beside it. It lead to the whole array overheating and dying.

This led has the advantage of phosphor between the dies but the four in the middle may have a hard time trying to stay cool.

Thanks for the test Djozz. Very interesting results.

I would be interested in a ~4500k 95CRI version for testing depending what my funds look like at the time.

If 4500k doesn’t happen then I could go either 4000k or 5000k. Both if I have the funds available.

If you could get this LED in 3V I would seriously consider swapping my EDC over to it. Just sad there are no TIR optics for this size LED in 20mm.

They said they can do 6v if there is enough demand, but that usually means thousands of pieces to be ordered. That’s something I don’t want to risk going bankrupt over. Maybe @Djozz could try desoldering one of these and see what’s beneath it and if swapping to 6v MCPCB is possible. I previously sent him two pieces so he can abuse one of them as much as he like. Evil

4500k seems unlikely as they usually make A5, A4 and C2 bins in their other product stack.

I’d hazard guess slice&diced XHP70.2 in term of beam profile, but less overall brightness due to “CRI Tax”

I will focus on A4 and A5 in this GB run. Other bins may be possible in the next round, if this run is successful.
