XLamp XHP50.2 LED Delivers the Highest Lumen Density in its Class

Cree’s XLamp XHP50.2 LED delivers up to 7% more lumens and 10% higher LPW than the first gen XHP50 LED. The XHP50.2 can produce more than 2,500 lumens from its 6 mm light emitting surface to reduce size, cost and enable innovative solutions for applications from spot to street lighting. LM-80 data is available to reduce the time for ENERGY STAR® and DesignLights Consortium® qualifications. XLamp XHP50.2 LEDs are available in 2700-6500 K with high CRI options.

“Arianna shares Cree’s vision that LEDs should not compromise quality or performance and should provide better lighting experiences in all aspects,” said Lorenzo Trevisanello, R&D manager of Arianna. “Our goals are to achieve the best cost-efficacy and versatility using the most efficient LEDs. Thanks to the XHP50.2 LED’s lumen density and proven reliability, even at high operating temperatures and drive currents, we are able to push the performance and size boundaries of our products even further.”

In addition to light output and efficacy enhancements, the XHP50.2 LED provides improvements to optical uniformity through secondary optics, enabling spot and portable lighting manufacturers to deliver better lighting experiences. The XHP50.2 LED has LM-80 data available immediately, reducing the time required to receive ENERGY STAR® and DesignLights Consortium® qualifications.

“Cree redefined High Power LED performance with the introduction of the industry’s first Extreme High Power LEDs,” said Dave Emerson, senior vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs. “Delivering the industry’s best lumen density and reliability, Cree’s XHP LED family allows our customers to achieve performance levels not possible with other LEDs at the lowest total system cost in a wide range of applications. With the launch of XHP50.2, Cree continues to redefine what is possible with high performance LEDs.”

Featuring Cree’s EasyWhite® technology, which provides the industry’s best color consistency, the XLamp XHP50.2 LEDs are available in 2700K-6500K with high CRI options. Product samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit www.cree.com/xlamp/xhp50_2 to learn more.
