Cree Announces the Next Generation of High-Power XP-L LEDs

Cree, Inc. introduces the XLamp® XP-L2 LED, delivering up to seven percent more lumens and 15 percent higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the industry-leading XP-L LED. Leveraging elements of Cree’s breakthrough SC5 Technology™ Platform, the high-power XP-L2 LED improves the lumen density, voltage characteristics and reliability of the XP-L LED in the proven XP package. The new XP-L2 LED provides an easy drop-in upgrade to achieve higher system LPW for lighting manufacturers with existing XP-L designs, eliminating redesign costs. It also enables reduced size and cost for new designs.

“We like the XP-L2 LED because it is Cree innovation that we can leverage immediately,” said Nathan Heiking, product manager, Kenall Lighting. “The new XP-L2 LED improves upon the XP-L LED in the same footprint, allowing us to quickly achieve higher system efficacy in our existing XP designs without the burden of increased development time and cost.”

The XLamp XP-L2 LED raises efficacy of warm white (3000K, 80 CRI) at 85°C up to 171 LPW. In addition, the XP-L2 LED is now available in EasyWhite® 2-, 3- and 5-step color temperatures from 2700 K to 6500 K to enable luminaire color consistency. The XP-L2 LED has LM-80 data available immediately, enabling luminaires using XP-L2 to be qualified for ENERGY STAR® and DesignLights Consortium®.

“Cree created a breakthrough performance class of high-power LEDs with the XLamp® XP-L LED, and the new XP-L2 continues to strengthen our performance advantage,” said Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. “The new XP-L2 LED delivers twice the lumen output of other similar-size high-power LEDs, enabling lighting manufacturers to improve the performance of their lighting designs and reduce the size and cost of new designs for applications, such as industrial and stadium lighting."
