Cree's New XLamp LED Arrays Double Lumen Density
The CXA high-density III-nitride based arrays enable the next generation of LED spot lights
Cree has announced what it says is the industry’s first High-Density (HD) LED Arrays - a breakthrough technology that doubles the system intensity of spot lights compared to previous arrays.
The new HD class of CXA Arrays provide unrivalled lumen density, enabling major reduction in system cost and power consumption.
The first HD Array, the CXA1520 LED, enables lighting manufacturers to create a new generation of products that delivers the same intensity and light quality as 39-W ceramic metal halide (CMH) at up to 50 percent lower power.
“The new CXA1520 LED Array delivers an impressive amount of light from a very small source. I have not seen another integrated array that can match this level of lumen density," says Mark Groenke, VP of engineering at ConTech Lighting. “The CXA1520 LED Array enables ConTech Lighting’s newest LED fixtures to exceed the efficiency and life of our ceramic metal halide fixture offerings while maintaining intensity and colour quality."
The High-Density Cree XLamp Array extends Cree’s robust CXA family to give lighting manufacturers a single integrated array family to address lighting applications from general-purpose floods to specialty retail spot lights.
Cree XLamp CXA1520 LED Arrays deliver up to 3478 lumens at 33 watts, 85°C. Available in ANSI White and four-step EasyWhite binning, the new arrays feature 2700 K through 5000 K CCTs, with 70, 80 and 95-CRI options.
“We have several CXA1507 and CXA1512 LED array designs, and we’re excited that the new CXA1520 LED Array shares the same light-emitting size as the CXA1507 and CXA1512 LED Arrays," says Tom Tang, chairman and CEO, Tons Lightology, Inc. “This allows us to address very-high output applications without changing the optics."
XLamp CXA1520 LED Array samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
