Cree Delivers Brightest and Most-Efficient Lighting-Class LED Array

Cree, Inc., a market leader in LED lighting, announces full availability of the industry’s first lighting-class LED array that help reduce overall system cost by combining superior efficacy, ease-of-design and ease-of-manufacture. The Cree XLamp® CXA2011 LED array is designed to deliver the smooth light output and consistent color needed for applications such as omnidirectional bulbs or directional downlights.

Features:
• Available in ANSI white bins as well as 4-step and 2-step EasyWhite bins at 2,700K, 3,000K, 3,500K, 4,000K, 5000K CCT
• Forward Voltage: 40 V
• 85°C binning and characterization
• NEMA SSL-3 2011 standard flux bins
• Max drive current: 1000 mA
• 120° viewing angle, uniform chromaticity profile
• Top-side solder connections
• Thermocouple attach point
• Screw down attachment
• RoHS and REACH-compliant
• Unlimited shelf life at
≤ 30°C/85% RH

“The CXA2011 LED has been incredibly easy to work with, enabling us to create very high-performance products,” said Jason Lee, president of Gama Illuminer. “It gave us a plug-and-play solution with the right combination of brightness, efficacy and color consistency with real-world 85 C specifications. Creating a design with CXA2011 was simple and manufacturing will be underway in record time.”

“Combining fast and flexible system design with ease-of-manufacturing, the CXA2011 LED array helps customers quickly create a broad range of LED-based designs,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior director of marketing, LED components. “Lower system cost and quicker time-to-market are keys to accelerating the LED lighting revolution.”

Easy-to-use screw-mounts simplify the manufacturing and design process by eliminating the need for complex design-specific engineering and reflow soldering.  With the CXA2011, Cree leads the way on color accuracy by extending the industry’s largest offering of LEDs characterized at real-world operating temperatures (85 C).

The CXA2011 LED array delivers up to 4000 lumens at an operating temperature of 85 C (1A, 5000 K) in a single component. It is available in 2-step and 4-step EasyWhite™ options, delivering the industry’s tightest LED-to-LED color consistency—reducing system complexity and making light source selection as easy as specifying a color temperature.
