Cree's Second Gen. XHP LED Delivers Unmatched Efficacy & Lumen Density

Cree, Inc. introduces the XLamp® XHP70.2 LED, the second generation of the highest output Extreme High Power LED, which delivers up to 9 percent more lumens and 18 percent higher lumens-per-watt (LPW) than the first generation XHP70 LED. The XHP70.2 LED provides up to 58 percent higher lumen density than the closest competitor LED of the same size, enabling smaller luminaires and better optical control for high-lumen lighting applications than ever before.

“We selected Cree’s first generation XHP70 LED as the best light source for large areas, including sporting and industrial facilities, because it enabled us to create smaller and more innovative LED lighting systems with unprecedented output and efficacy,” said Ing. Flavio Sangiorgio, R&D Director at Fael Luce. “The improved efficacy of the next generation XHP70.2 LED lets us easily upgrade our products to maintain performance leadership without any major redesign.”

The XHP70.2 LED features the same 7.0x7.0 mm footprint as the previous generation and provides an easy drop-in upgrade for customers with existing XHP70 designs. In addition to light output and efficacy enhancements, the XHP70.2 LED improves optical uniformity through secondary optics, enabling lighting manufacturers to deliver better lighting performance. The XHP70.2 LED has LM-80 data available immediately, reducing the time required to receive ENERGY STAR® and DesignLights Consortium® qualifications.

“Unlike some companies, Cree continues to invest in improving light output, efficacy and reliability of our Extreme High Power LEDs to enable our customers to quickly improve their existing designs and create innovative new products,” said Dave Emerson, Cree LEDs senior vice president and general manager. “Our XHP LEDs highlight the unique advantages of Cree’s ceramic high power LED technology in reducing the cost and improving the performance of systems where extreme light output is required.”

Featuring Cree’s EasyWhite® technology, which provides the industry’s best color consistency, the XLamp XHP70.2 LEDs are available in 2700K-6500K with high CRI options. Product samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
