Cree, Inc. has announced the introduction of the XLamp® XHP50.2 LED, which delivers up to 7% more lumens and 10% higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the first generation XHP50 LED in the same 5.0 mm x 5.0 mm package.
Dave Emerson, senior vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs, said the new XHP50.2 LED enables lighting manufacturers to quickly improve the performance of existing XHP50 lighting designs.
“Cree redefined High Power LED performance with the introduction of the industry’s first Extreme High Power LEDs,” Mr Emerson said.
“Delivering the industry’s best lumen density and reliability, Cree’s XHP LED family allows our customers to achieve performance levels not possible with other LEDs at the lowest total system cost in a wide range of applications. With the launch of XHP50.2, Cree continues to redefine what is possible with high performance LEDs.”
According to the press release on the Business Wire, the XHP50.2 is capable of producing more than 2,500 lumens from its 6mm light emitting surface (LES), reducing the size and cost of new designs and enabling innovative solutions to address applications ranging from spot to street lighting.
“In addition to light output and efficacy enhancements, the XHP50.2 LED provides improvements to optical uniformity through secondary optics, enabling spot and portable lighting manufacturers to deliver better lighting experiences,” reads the press release.
“The XHP50.2 LED has LM-80 data available immediately, reducing the time required to receive ENERGY STAR® and DesignLights Consortium® qualifications.”
The XLamp XHP50.2 LEDs are available in 2700K-6500K with high CRI options.
