USA: Cree Inc. is redefining the mid-power LED market with the new XLamp XH Series LEDs – the first family of mid-power ceramic LEDs that offer no-compromise performance and reliability.
Unlike today’s common mid-power plastic packages, XLamp XH-G and XH-B LEDs enable lighting manufacturers to create a new generation of more energy-efficient, longer life LED lighting solutions without sacrificing cost or performance. XH LEDs are optimized for fluorescent replacement lighting applications such as troffers and panel lights, where high efficacy, lifetime and smooth appearance are critical.
The XH-G LED delivers leading efficacy levels of up to 170 lumens-per-watt at 65 mA, 5000K, 80 CRI and 25°C. In addition, the ceramic-based XH LEDs are designed to deliver the long L70 lifetimes at high temperature and high current operation of Cree’s other high-power LEDs, such as XP and XT LEDs.
In comparison, plastic LEDs are known for very short L70 lifetimes at high temperature and high current operation. The XH LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to offer products that meet the reliability expectations of LED technology.
Both XH-G and XH-B LEDs share a common 3.0mm x 3.0mm footprint package with a 13 percent wider beam angle than most plastic mid-power LEDs. Cree XLamp XH LEDs are offered in 2700K to 7000K color temperatures with high CRI options available. Samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
