MSC Announces Availability of Cree's New High-Performance Ceramic Mid-Power LEDs

The new mid-power LEDs from Cree XLamp XH series are particularly characterized by their innovative, carrier-based ceramic material and are now available at MSC. XH LEDs are optimized for fluorescent-replacement-lighting applications, such as troffers and panel lights, where high efficacy, lifetime and smooth appearance are critical.

The XH-G LED delivers leading efficacy levels of up to 170 lumens-per-watt at 65 mA, 5000 K, 80 CRI and 25°C. In addition, the ceramic-based XH LEDs are designed to deliver the long L70 lifetimes at high temperature and high current operation of Cree’s other high-power LEDs, such as XP and XT LEDs. In comparison, plastic LEDs are known for very short L70 lifetimes at high-temperature and high-current operation.  

The XH LEDs provide peace-of-mind to lighting manufacturers while enabling them to better differentiate their products in the marketplace.” Both XH-G and XH-B LEDs share a common 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm footprint package with a 13 percent wider beam angle than most plastic mid-power LEDs. Cree® XLamp XH LEDs are offered in 2700-K to 7000-K color temperatures with high-CRI options available. Samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
