Cree Announces New XLamp Delivers 160% More Light Output
The XLamp(R) MX-6 LED deilvers up to 300 lumens in cool white (6500 K) and 245 lumens in warm white (3000 K) at 1A current.
Cree announces a higher maximum forward drive current for the XLamp(R) MX-6 LED. The MX-6's PLCC package is optimized for indoor lighting where enhanced light uniformity and LED-to-LED color consistency is important.
"At Lightfair 2010 in Las Vegas, Booth 746, we are relaunching our Raye fixture, which is now based on Cree MX-6 LEDs," said Ann Reo, IO Lighting founder and General Manager. "The MX-6 LED has dramatically reduced the power consumption for this cove and wall slot fixture, giving us superior luminaire efficacy. Raye is now a great retrofit option for existing fluorescent cove lighting applications because it delivers the same luminous intensity at 25 percent less power."
"By qualifying our XLamp MX-6 LEDs at higher drive currents we are giving customers additional design flexibility," said Paul Thieken, Cree Director of Marketing, LED Components. "Cree continues to ship the broadest portfolio of lighting-class LEDs, optimized for a wide range of lighting applications."
