LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the XLamp XP-G3 S Line LED, an extension of the XLamp XP-G3 range that delivers high-power LED technology optimized for long-lifetime, high-power general lighting applications where sensors and the Internet of Things (IoT) are becoming common, such as commercial indoor, parking, industrial and roadway.

Connected lighting systems use information from occupancy sensors and other sources to continuously react to the target environment, dimming or switching off unneeded lights to conserve energy. On average, a connected lighting system will dim or switch off lights up to 10 times more often than with a standard lighting system. These additional dimming and switching cycles put more stress on the LED system and can limit the luminaire’s lifetime. Through innovations in component architecture, the new XLamp XP-G3 S Line LED can withstand double the number of switching cycles compared with competing LEDs in its class, it is claimed.

The new XP-G3 S Line LED further improves the standard XP-G3 with better reliability through switching and dimming cycles, improved resistance to sulfur exposure, and higher light output and efficacy. This more robust version of the XP-G3 LED delivers LED system reliability in all lighting applications, including those with harsher environments.

“The lighting market will require LEDs designed to withstand the rigors of connected intelligent lighting,” says Cree LEDs executive VP & general manager Dave Emerson. “Cree’s new S Line LEDs employ a unique chip and package architecture that delivers the reliability and performance to withstand harsh environments, repeated dimming and on/off cycles.”

The XP-G3 S Line LED provides an easy upgrade path for existing XP-based LED systems, allowing manufacturers to quickly implement these LED innovations into their designs. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. The XP-G3 S Line LED has LM-80 data available to enable luminaires to immediately meet the requirements for DesignLights Consortium qualification.
