“We’re excited about the new XLamp® XP-L LED because its next-level performance enables us to create the next generation of light output and efficacy for our directional lighting products,” said
As the brightest member of the industry’s only family of high-density class discrete LEDs, the new XP-L LED also touts the industry’s highest optical control factor (OCF), a measurement of the impact that LED size and performance have on directional lighting applications. With its high OCF, the XP-L will enable lighting manufacturers to improve the performance of existing lighting designs in the XP footprint, reduce the size and cost of new designs and create innovative new solutions to address applications ranging from lamps to stadium lighting.
“We evaluated many high power LEDs before deciding on Cree’s new high-density discrete LEDs,” said Jason Gerard, group GM, engineering,
Characterized and binned at 1050 mA, 85°C, the XP-L LED is available in up to 90 CRI and color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 8300 K. As a “successor” product to the XLamp XM-L2, lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification can use just 3,000 hours of LM-80 data, potentially saving up to four months in the approval process.
