Cree’s new XP-G3 S Line LED (light emitting diode) suits harsh outdoor environments and repeated switching cycles associated with connected lighting and IoT (internet of things).
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.
Cree has unveiled new XLamp XP-G3 S Line LEDs with a unique chip and package architecture that claims to deliver the reliability and performance to withstand harsh environments, repeated dimming and on/off cycles.
The new high-power LED technology is 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.
LEDs optimized for the connected lighting future
Cree claims that 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 offers excellent LED system reliability in all lighting applications, including those with harsher environments.
“Our customers want LED solutions that are highly efficient, cost-effective and reliable enough to last in the harsh outdoor environments of Brazil,” said Mario Sergio Martins, co-owner, Genesis Devices & Equipment (GDE). “With the new XP-G3 S Line LEDs, Cree is delivering a solution that is quickly and easily implemented to improve the performance and reliability for all my products, whether they include IoT controls now or will be retrofitted later in the field.”
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.
