New Performance Data Plus ENERGY STAR™ LM-80 Data for Cree's XLamp® MX-6 LEDs

Cree, Inc. has further simplified indoor LED fixture design with its newly optimized XLamp® MX-6 LEDs, which feature higher flux options, new, longer lifetime estimates and higher CRI options. Cree has also completed LM-80 testing on MX-6 LEDs, which can enable quicker time to market for manufacturers designing ENERGY STAR®-rated fixtures.

“These MX-6 LED improvements are proof of Cree’s commitment to enabling our customers’ success in LED lighting,” said Paul Thieken, Cree director of marketing, LED components. “By delivering high efficacy, uniform light output and extended lifetime, as well as completed LM-80 data, MX-6 LEDs are an ideal choice for manufacturers pursuing ENERGY STAR®-qualified indoor LED fixtures such as cove, wall washing, under-cabinet or desk lamps.”

XLamp MX-6 LEDs are now available in higher flux order codes offering light output of up to 122 lumens at 300 mA in cool white (6000K) and up to 100 lumens at 300 mA in warm white (3000 K). MX-6 LEDs are also available with 80 CRI minimum in warm white (2600 K – 4300 K) for both standard and high-voltage configurations.

Based on LM-80 extrapolations and under normal operating conditions, MX-6 LEDs can provide an L70 lifetime of more than 150,000 hours using ENERGY STAR lifetime prediction methods. If used 24-hours-a-day, that equates to more than 17 years.

XLamp MX-6 LEDs with 80-CRI minimum or higher flux bins are also available in sample quantities immediately and production quantities with standard lead times. To locate a distributor, please visit www.cree.com/buyxlamp.
