Cree launches next generation of high-power XP-L LEDs, boosting output by 7% and efficiency by 15%

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the XLamp XP-L2 LED, delivering up to 7% more lumens and 15% higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the XP-L LED.

Leveraging elements of Cree's SC5 Technology Platform, the high-power XP-L2 LED improves the lumen density, voltage characteristics and reliability of the XP-L LED in the proven XP package. The firm says that the new XP-L2 LED provides an easy drop-in upgrade to achieve higher system LPW for lighting manufacturers with existing XP-L designs, eliminating re-design costs. It also enables reduced size and cost for new designs.

"The new XP-L2 LED improves upon the XP-L LED in the same footprint, allowing us to quickly achieve higher system efficacy in our existing XP designs without the burden of increased development time and cost," comments Nathan Heiking, product manager at Kenall Lighting.

The XP-L2 LED raises the luminous efficacy for warm-white color temperature (3000K) at a color rendering index (CRI) of 80 (at 85°C) to 171LPW. In addition, it is now available in EasyWhite 2-, 3- and 5-step color temperatures from 2700K to 6500K to enable luminaire color consistency. The XP-L2 LED has LM-80 data available immediately, enabling luminaires using XP-L2 to be qualified for ENERGY STAR and DesignLights Consortium.

"The new XP-L2 LED delivers twice the lumen output of other similar-size high-power LEDs, enabling lighting manufacturers to improve the performance of their lighting designs and reduce the size and cost of new designs for applications, such as industrial and stadium lighting," claims Dave Emerson, VP & general manager for Cree LEDs.

Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
