Cree Expands Into New High Bay Applications

News
HXB series first of its kind to operate in extreme ambient temperatures

Cree has introduced the HXB Series LED High Bay Luminaire, said to be the first of its kind to operate in extreme ambient temperatures spanning -40degC to +65degC and delivering 70,000 lumens at up to 140 lumens per watt (LPW).

The luminaire can be mounted at heights of 30 feet and higher, and comes with optical options including flood and aisle distributions. The HXB High Bay Series brings Cree technology to new applications such as cold-storage spaces with sub-zero temperatures and high-heat climates like warehouses and airplane hangars.

 "Cree continues to provide better light experiences by delivering on the true potential of LED technology," said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting. "The HXB Series redefines the high-bay category with extraordinary rated lifetimes and industry-leading lumens per watt even in extreme operating temperatures that are found in distribution centers, gymnasiums and field house applications."  

The HXB Series withstands freezing cold and severe heat, all at less than half the weight and double the warranty of competing LED high-bay fixtures. It is engineered for performance today and for 100,000 hours of use, with a virtually maintenance-free design, zero restrike time and lightweight construction, says Cree.

An aluminum bonded zipper fin heat sink provides thermal management for long lifetime and exceptional efficacy in extreme operating temperatures. With less material than cast aluminum heat sinks, the HXB Series is said to be half the weight of competing luminaires, for easier installation.

The series is available with 35,000 and 70,000 lumen output options of exceptional illumination performance, offering one-for-one replacement of 500W and 1000W HID luminaires at colour temps of 3500K, 4000K or 5000K at up to and beyond 80 CRI.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
