Cree launches high-density class of XLamp CXA LED arrays

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched what it claims are the industry’s first high-density (HD) LED arrays, doubling the system intensity of spot lights compared to previous arrays.

The firm says that the lumen density of the new HD class of CXA Arrays enables a major reduction in system cost and power consumption. The first HD Array, the CXA1520 LED, enables lighting manufacturers to create products that deliver the same intensity and light quality as 39W ceramic metal halide (CMH) at up to 50% lower power, Cree reckons.

The High-Density Cree XLamp Array extends Cree’s robust CXA family to give lighting manufacturers a single integrated array family to address lighting applications from general-purpose floods to specialty retail spot lights. The XLamp CXA1520 LED Arrays deliver up to 3478 lumens at 33W (at 85°C). Available in ANSI White and four-step EasyWhite binning, they feature correlated color temperatures (CCTs) of 2700K through 5000K, with 70, 80 and 95-CRI (color rendering index) options.

“The new CXA1520 LED Array shares the same light-emitting size as the CXA1507 and CXA1512 LED Arrays,” says Tom Tang, chairman & CEO of Tons Lightology Inc, which already has several designs based on CXA1507 and CXA1512 LED arrays. “This allows us to address very high-output applications without changing the optics.”

XLamp CXA1520 LED Array samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
