Cree's LED platform

LED solutions provider Cree Inc. has recently unveiled its latest LED platform, the XLamp XM-L2. The XLamp XM-L2 LED delivers up to 186 lumens-per-watt at 350 mA at 25°C, performance. It uses a revolutionary SC3 Technology LED platform, doubling its lumens per dollar. It also delivers 20 per cent more lumens-per-watt over the original XM-L LED.

Used in such high-lumen applications as indoor, high-bay and outdoor lighting, the LEDs leverage the 5mm x 5mm XN footprint for easy incorporation in existing fixtures and designs. The LEDs offer a combination of very high efficacy at high driver currents and, what the company claims is an unprecedented 1198 lumens at 116 lumens-per-watt efficacy at 3A, 25°C.

It is available in 2500K to 6200K colour temperatures and offers minimum CRI options of 80, 85 and 90. Applying ENERGY STAR qualification requires just 3000 hours of XM-L2 LED LM-80 data vs. the standard 6000 hours. The SM-L@ LED is UL-recognised and features a level-4 rating. Samples available now, production quantities with standard lead times. Contact company for pricing.
