Cree expands XLamp ML family of mid-power lighting-class LEDs to optimize and simplify luminaire designs

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched mid-power XLamp ML-C and ML-E LEDs, bringing increased versatility and flexibility to a wide spectrum of lighting applications.

Designed to accelerate the adoption of LED lighting, the expanded XLamp ML family now offers red, green and blue color options, high-voltage and three different price-performance options in the proven and reliable ML package. The ML LED high-voltage options can enable the use of more efficient, smaller drivers to reduce cost for applications such as LED replacement lamps.

Cree says that ML LEDs deliver the flexibility and optimization needed to quickly design a portfolio of products for multiple lighting applications, including architectural, hospitality, emergency vehicle, decorative lighting, and linear florescent LED replacements. With a shared 3.5mm x 3.45mm footprint, users can quickly and easily expand or update their product portfolio by leveraging a common ML package, the firm adds.

“Using products from Cree’s ML LED family gives us great flexibility,” comments Michael Pena, president of Blue Ridge Lighting Solutions LLC of Cary, NC. “From a full white color temperature spectrum and different power ratings to the offer of color LEDs, the family of ML products gives us the capacity to offer our customers a full range of lighting options,” he adds.

“Providing the broadest portfolio of LED components is essential to accelerate LED adoption,” says Mike Watson, Cree’s senior marketing director, LED components. “Cree’s expanded family of optimized ML LEDs further extends the options for our customers to support a wide array of lighting applications without sacrificing lighting-class performance.”

The ML-C LED delivers luminous flux up to 37 lumens in cool white (5000K) and up to 31 lumens in warm white (3000K), both at a drive current of 100mA. The series versions of XLamp ML-C and ML-E white LEDs have typical voltages of 6.4V and 9.6V, respectively, at 50mA. The entire family of XLamp ML white LEDs provides 6000 hours of LM-80 data available now, which can speed up the ENERGY STAR qualification process. The XLamp ML white family is also available in minimum 80, 85 and 90 CRI (color rendering index) options.
