Cree Inc., a global manufacturer and marketer of lighting-class LEDs and lighting products, has introduced XLamp XHP70.2 LED, the second generation of the highest output Extreme High Power LED. It delivers up to 9% more lumens and 18% higher lumens per watt (LPW) as compared to the first generation version. Moving on, it offers up to 58% higher than its closest competitor LED with the same size. This facilitates smaller luminaries and better optical control for high-lumen lighting applications than before.
“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.”
Coming to the specifications and features, the second generation features the same 7.0 mm x 7.0 mm footprint similar to the first version. It also has an easy drop-in upgrade for customers having the XHP70 designs.
Apart from the output and efficacy, the LED features improved optical uniformity through secondary optics, thereby helping manufacturers to deliver a better lighting performance. Besides, the XHP70.2 LED has LM-80 data available which reduces the time needed to receive ENERGY STAR and DesignLights Consortium qualifications.
