Here it is sliced in a Sofirn C01S AAA small TIR on the “100 lumen” setting. Not exactly apples to apples but you can see lower DUV but not much change in CCT. I cant explain why that is, maybe LED tint variation but probably just the optic doing strange things. It’s not really meant for such a large die. There is also a little ambient light in room.
The 2700k and 3500k were always the best ones so I’m not too surprised by this.
We have seen T6 be above bbl from other vendors so it seems like these squares if meaningful generally tend to be at the very top of the square/bin
Side note; CONGRATS on getting one of these mega distributors to answer this. Didn’t think it was possible.
If I can muster up the energy I’ll test my Convoy sourced 5700K 351D tonight or tomorrow. Don’t think we have seen one of these in the “wild” yet. I think these were from some stadium lighting so I suspect mega green but we’ll see…
Yeah, plus with 4000K and up the middle of the quadrangles is raised above the BBL, probably to merge with daylight tint (~ 0.0030 duv), on the other hand, integrated duv should be slightly lower than measured at the spot (but maybe not that much with the frosted TIR you used).
I was doubtful they would bother to check for me yes, I got no reply for ~10 days so I though they ignored me.
Simon wrote the bins he got and it’s Q2 (5700K) and R2 (5000K) so the lower duv bins. I have some 5000K coming (not interested in 5700K) so I’ll see how they test. By the way I measured my FC11 and it’s actually worse than yours :
5170K (Duv 0.0086)
(Ra) = 87.6 [ R9 = 30.8 ]
Is this the color we saw on the first power LEDs? We all had those Ledlensers and fakes on our keychains. Stable fluorophores had yet to be found I guess. I remember, when I was in microscopy, fluorochroms had really little photon staticstics like 60000 for this green substance whose name I forgot. You could watch them fading. Or is this a completely different story?
This is in a Sofirn IF25 at lowish output (2 LEDs at 50~100lm or something).
This is great because this is exactly what I wanted, a very warm 3535 LED with high CRI, which apparently doesn’t exist.
In the same flashlight (it’s a tint ramping light) I got Convoy sourced 5000K, also sliced :
CCT = 3877K (Duv –0.0004) 93.5 [ R9 = 60.2 ]
I’m surprised of how much the CCT was reduced compared to yours, in your FC11 it reduced to 4500K. In this case 4500K kind of was what I was aiming at for the max CCT in this light, I should probably have gone with the 5700K instead.
