Cree introduces new lighting-class LED arrays

Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced its new CXA LED arrays, with LEDs that deliver system-level performance ranging from 500 to 5000 lumens and up to 146 LED lumens per watt, enabling applications ranging from LED replacement lamps to commercial downlights, says the firm.

CXA LED arrays are available in EasyWhite color temperatures, which provide color consistency for designs that use only one LED. The arrays are designed to be used as a single component in an LED design, offering simplified design, manufacturing and inventory management, and enabling lighting manufacturers to shorten time to market and reduce manufacturing costs, adds the firm.

“We switched to Cree’s new CXA1507 LED array because it delivers higher performance over other LED arrays,” said Jason Lee, president of Gama Illuminer. “The easy-to-use package of the CXA1507 LED array with well-designed features and small optical source made design and manufacturing simple.”

The new CXA family offers four CXA LED arrays (CXA1507, CXA1512, CXA2520 and CXA2530) delivering different lumen levels in two packages and optical sizes (minimum 80 and 90 CRI available).

Mike Watson, Cree senior director marketing, LEDs, said, “The CXA1512 LED array can deliver over 1900 lumens at 120 lumens per watt in a very small 9-mm optical source size. Other LED arrays may come close to this level of performance, but not in this small of a form factor. The CXA1512’s small size is critical for enabling low system cost in a wide range of lighting applications, from narrow-beam spotlights to wide-area lights.”

Cree XLamp CXA LED array samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
