MSC Announces Availability of the New XLamp® XP-E2 LEDs for More Power and Efficiency

The new XLamp ® XP-E 2 by Cree is characterized by a particularly high luminous efficacy (lumens per watt) and efficiency (lumens per euro) and is now available from MSC. Developers who have designed lighting solutions based on LED series Cree XLamp XP-E and XP-G benefit from this fact. The XLamp XP-E 2 gives the opportunity to develop more efficient and cheaper LED lighting systems.

The XP-E2 LEDs use the same XP footprint (3.45mm x 3.45mm) and are optically compatible with all XP LED designs, including the popular XP-E and XP-G LEDs. The XP-E2 LEDs also enable a broad range of high-lumen applications, from indoor and outdoor lighting to portable and lamp retrofits. The latest Cree offering to be built on the SC3 Technology™ next generation LED platform, the XP-E2 LEDs deliver up to 128 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 85°C or 143 lumens per watt at 350mA, 25°C in cool white (6000K). The SC3 Technology next generation LED platform is built with Cree’s advanced silicon carbide technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor and showcases a new package design to deliver the most advanced lighting-class LED components in the industry.

Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed time-to-market. XP-E2 LEDs are a “successor” product to the original XP-E LED for LM-80 data – accelerating qualification of luminaires using just 3000 hours of LM-80 data, instead of the normal 6000 hours.

Cree XLamp XP-E2 LED samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. XP-E2 LEDs are available in 2700K to 7000K color temperatures with minimum CRI options of 70, 80, 85 and 90.
