We have taken every measure to closely match the color output of our new LED package to our previous version. The optical performance of the LED, as measured by an integrating sphere, indicates that we are within 40-50 K of the previous color output (CCT).
The new package has improved lumen maintenance, which means the two versions will not age at the same rate. For this reason, it is not recommended to mix the new version with the previous version on the same installation.
We have reserved a limited stock of the previous version for warranty and service claims.
