Cree extends lighting-class LEDs to high voltage for more efficient LED bulbs

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that it has extended its lighting-class LEDs to high voltage with commercial availability of the new XLamp MX-6S and MX-3S LEDs.

With the same footprint and high performance as the XLamp MX-6 and MX-3 LEDs, the MX-6S and MX-3S offer new high-voltage configurations designed for space-constrained LED lamps and bulbs. For these applications, high-voltage LEDs can be used to achieve smaller, more efficient power supplies and thermal systems.

The MX-6S delivers luminous flux of up to 139 lumens at 60mA/20V in 6000K and 114 lumens in 3000K correlated color temperatures (CCTs). The MX-3S provides up to 122 lumens at 115mA/10.7V in 6000K and 100 lumens in 3000K. Cree says that the MX series LEDs deliver lighting-class performance for high-voltage LEDs, including high reliability, high efficacy and what is claimed to be industry-leading color consistency.

“These new XLamp LED products can enable LED lamp manufacturers to create more efficient and cost-effective designs in applications such as A-19-bulbs or GU10 lamps,” says Paul Thieken, Cree’s director of marketing, LED components.
