Cree Increases Drive Current for XLamp® MX-6 Lighting-Class PLCC LED to Increase Light Output

Cree, Inc. announces a higher maximum forward drive current for the XLamp® MX-6 LED. The MX-6’s PLCC package is optimized for indoor lighting where enhanced light uniformity and LED-to-LED color consistency is important.

At 1 A of current, XLamp MX-6 LEDs provide up to 300 lumens in cool white (6500 K) and 245 lumens in warm white (3000 K).

“At Lightfair 2010 in Las Vegas, Booth 746, we are relaunching our Raye fixture, which is now based on Cree MX-6 LEDs,” said Ann Reo, IO Lighting founder and general manager. “The MX-6 LED has dramatically reduced the power consumption for this cove and wall slot fixture, giving us superior luminaire efficacy. Raye is now a great retrofit option for existing fluorescent cove lighting applications because it delivers the same luminous intensity at 25 percent less power.”

“By qualifying our XLamp MX-6 LEDs at higher drive currents we are giving customers additional design flexibility,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED Components. “Cree continues to ship the broadest portfolio of lighting-class LEDs, optimized for a wide range of lighting applications.”
