“We looked at many different LEDs but selected the XP-G2 LED because of its high performance and proven reliability,” said Amy Casper, CEO of Ephesus Lighting, Inc. “We are excited that the XP-G2 LED is now even brighter. Cree’s leading-edge technology is one of the key elements in our products, allowing us to offer market-leading performance to our customers in both the industrial and sport lighting industries.”
XP-G2 LEDs are used in a wide variety of applications, including street and area lighting, PAR replacement lamps and high-performance flashlights. The new XP-G2 LEDs now deliver up to 142 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 85°C or 155 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 25°C in warm white (3000K), enabling lighting manufacturers to use fewer LEDs to achieve the same brightness at a lower system cost or increase performance levels using the same LED count and power.
“Cree pioneered the industry-standard form factor with the XP-G LED platform and has continued to provide the industry’s best performance since its inception,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED Components. “The new XP-G2 LED furthers Cree’s proven leadership and helps protect its customers’ investment. The higher performance XP-G2 results in fewer required LEDs, which means fewer optics, a smaller printed circuit board and less handling, all of which translates to lower system cost.”
“We do all of our product development in-house and we consistently look to Cree for the latest in LED technology,” said Scott Riesebosch, chief technology officer, CRS Electronics, Inc. “As a customer that uses the XP package, we’re excited to be able to extend our product portfolio with the newest XP-G2 LED, without making any additional investment.”
Cree is also announcing the availability of 6,000 hours of LM-80 long-term testing data for the XP-G2 LED. This LM-80 data provides TM-21 reported L85 lifetimes greater than 36,000 hours, translating to a remarkable 15 percent light loss after four years, even at the maximum current of 1500 mA. In addition, the XP-G2’s predecessor, the XLamp XP-G LED, now has more than 12,000 hours of LM-80 data available. All XP-G data sets provide TM-21 reported L95 lifetimes greater than 70,000 hours, or eight years, reflecting the excellent long-term reliability of the XLamp XP package.
The higher performance XLamp XP-G2 LED samples are available now. Production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit www.cree.com/xpg2 to learn more.
