Cree LED Shatters 205 Lumens-Per-Watt Barrier


Cree introduced a new LED optimised for directional, high-lumen applications, from indoor and outdoor to portable and lamp retrofits, including roadway, spot and high-bay lighting. Offered in the industry-standard high power 3535 (3.45 x 3.45mm) form factor, the XP-G3 is claimed to achieve over 205 LPW at 350mA and up to 863 lm at 2A.

The high-power XP-G3 LED is said to improve the lumen density, voltage characteristics and reliability of previous XP-G generations. It delivers 31 per cent more lumens and eight per cent higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the previous XP-G2 LED.

The LED delivers the benefits of the XP-G platform – compact and proven 3.45mm x 3.45mm package and established ecosystem, enabling customers to simplify the design process and shorten time to market. Further, the LED offers both high reliability at high operating temperatures and high-efficacy to meet the higher-efficacy and lumen maintenance requirements of DLC classification, says the company.


“We are designing a new series of 130 lumens-per-watt high performance streetlights and the choice to use the new Cree XP-G3 LED was clear,” said Wilbur Press releaseTarn, director of OrangeTeK.

The LEDs have 6,000 hours of LM-80 data available that is extrapolated to predict L90 lifetimes beyond 50,000 hours, even at extreme test conditions of 105°C and 1500 mA.

Further, the new LEDs are characterized and binned at 85°C and available in ANSI White, EasyWhite 3- and 5-step color temperatures (2700K – 6500K). CRI options are 70, 80 and 90.

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