High-power LED delivers up to 931 lumens out of 5x5mm package

August 11, 2016 // By Julien Happich
The 5x5mm XLamp MHB-B LED released by Cree is aimed at high efficiency applications designed to meet the new DesignLights Consortium (DLC) 4.0 Premium requirements.

Leveraging key elements of Cree’s SC5 Technology Platform, the ceramic MHB-B LEDs combine high light output, high efficacy and high reliability to enable high lumen LED designs that are not possible with mid-power LEDs. The MHB-B LED delivers up to 931 lumens at 85°C and 13 percent higher LPW than the MHB-A LED in the same 5x5mm package, allowing lighting manufacturers to quickly increase performance for existing MHB designs without any additional investment.

A high-bay reference design built with MHB-B LEDs delivers 24,000 lumens and more than 130 LPW system efficacy at 44 percent less weight and 36 percent smaller diameter than comparable high bays based on mid-power LEDs, the company claims. The MHB-B LEDs have L90 lifetime projections of 60,000 hours at 105°C. Featuring Cree’s EasyWhite technology, the XLamp MHB-B LEDs are available in 2700K-6500K with high CRI and multiple voltage options. Product samples are available now, and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
