New Cree® XLamp® XQ-E High Intensity Color LEDs Offer Highest Candela Performance

XLamp® XQ-E High Intensity LEDs are the industry’s first family of color LEDs optimized to deliver the highest candela performance. The XQ-E High Intensity LED is the smallest building block for color LED designs, allowing lighting manufacturers to boost performance and reduce size for directional applications.

This drop-in upgrade for proven XQ-E High Density designs enables lighting manufacturers to double the candela performance with minimal redesign. The new High Intensity LEDs leverage XQ-E’s proven optical symmetry and consistency across all colors to improve color mixing and simplify the production process for lighting manufacturers. Built on Cree’s breakthrough SC5 Technology™ Platform, the XQ-E High Intensity LED is the smallest building block available for color LED designs allowing lighting manufacturers to quickly boost performance and drastically reduce size for directional applications such as track and architectural lighting.

“Cree continues to drive innovation within the solid state lighting market by truly listening to the customer and providing solutions like the XQ-E High Intensity LED. At Lumenpulse, candela is the name of the game, and we want to put as much light as possible on the surface we are illuminating, as efficiently as possible,” said Greg Campbell, Senior Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Lumenpulse. “The XQ-E

Available in white, red, red-orange, PC amber, green, blue and royal blue, the XQ-E High Intensity LED features Cree’s innovative new primary optic design that radically reduces optical source size by more than 50 percent to deliver the industry’s best optical control.

“We are excited that Cree is extending its high intensity class of performance to the XQ family,” said Antonio Di Gangi, CEO, DGA. “The combination of high lumen output, innovative primary optic and the tiny footprint of the XQ-E High Intensity LEDs enables us to create compact luminaires that deliver a lot of punch.”

The XQ-E High Intensity White is available in color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 6200 K and CRI options of 70, 80 and 90. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
