Cree® XLamp EasyWhite® XM-L2: First LED of Its Size to Enable Color-Consistent 50W Halogen Performance

The Cree XLamp® XM-L2 EasyWhite® LED delivers more than 1,100 lumens of color-consistent light from a 5mm x 5mm package and is optimized to replace halogen technology. Built on Cree’s EasyWhite technology, which combines the industry’s tightest color binning and intense light output from a single LED, the XM-L2 is a drop-in upgrade for the first-generation XM-L EasyWhite LED and enables a 38 percent gain in light output and efficacy.

XLamp XM-L2 EasyWhite LED“The new XLamp® XM-L2 EasyWhite® LED offers greater optical control and an immediate performance boost to our existing designs using the XM-L EasyWhite LED,” said Tom Tang, Chairman, Tons Lightology Inc. “Having a drop-in replacement eliminates the need to redesign existing products, which lowers costs and helps speed our time to market.”

Developed to be used as a single component in small form factor lighting designs, the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED is designed to emulate the appearance and match the color consistency of halogen lamps. The XM-L2 EasyWhite LED offers 2-step and 4-step MacAdam ellipse bins to deliver the industry’s best color consistency, which is required for retail, residential, museum and hospitality applications.

“Cree continues to lead the way in optimizing LEDs for optical performance and color consistency,” said Paul Thieken, director of marketing, LED Components, Cree, Inc. “We were the first to introduce an LED optimized for 50-watt halogen performance with the XLamp® MT-G EasyWhite® LED. Now with the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED, Cree delivers the same amount of light with the best color consistency in a package that’s 70 percent smaller, reducing the system cost for LEDs in halogen replacement applications.”

Characterized at 85°C, the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED is available with 80 and 90 minimum CRI options, color temperatures ranging from 5000K to 2700K and forward voltage configurations of 6V or 12V. Lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification can take advantage of the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED’s “successor” status to the XM-L EasyWhite LED and use just 3,000 hours of LM-80 data—half of what is normally required—for ENERGY STAR qualification.
