Cree has rolled out a new LED model which it describes as the highest output extremely high power LED. The new XHP70.2 LED comes in the same 7.0 mm x 7.0 mm footprint as the previous version (XHP70) and provides an easy drop-in upgrade to achieve higher system LPW (lumens per watt) for lighting designers with existing XHP70 designs, thereby eliminating redesign costs. Applications are large areas, including sporting and industrial facilities where extreme light output is required.
The new LED claims to deliver up to 9 percent more lumens and 18 percent higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the first generation XHP70 LED.
When compared to the closest competitor LED of the same size, the XHP70.2 LED is said to provide up to 58 percent higher lumen density enabling smaller luminaires and better optical control for high-lumen lighting applications.
“We selected Cree’s first generation XHP70 LED as the best light source for large areas, including sporting and industrial facilities, because it enabled us to create smaller and more innovative LED lighting systems with unprecedented output and efficacy,” said Ing. Flavio Sangiorgio, R&D Director at Fael Luce. “The improved efficacy of the next generation XHP70.2 LED lets us easily upgrade our products to maintain performance leadership without any major redesign.”
“The LED outputs a maximum of 4292lm, while drawing a maximum power of 29W.”
The XHP70.2 LED is designed with a 125° beam, improving optical uniformity through secondary optics, enabling lighting manufacturers to deliver better lighting performance, says Cree.
Furthermore, the LED has LM-80 data available immediately, reducing the time required to receive ENERGY STAR and DesignLights Consortium qualifications.
“Unlike some companies, Cree continues to invest in improving light output, efficacy and reliability of our Extreme High Power LEDs to enable our customers to quickly improve their existing designs and create innovative new products,” said Dave Emerson, Cree LEDs senior vice president and general manager. “Our XHP LEDs highlight the unique advantages of Cree’s ceramic high power LED technology in reducing the cost and improving the performance of systems where extreme light output is required.”
The XLamp XHP70.2 LEDs are available in 6V and 12V options and in 2700K-6500K with high CRI options. Product samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
