Built on Cree’s SC5 Technology Platform, the XP-L High-Intensity LED claims to deliver more than double the candelas than the industry’s previous highest-performing single-die XP-L LED through the same optic. Using the existing 3.45-mm x 3.45-mm XP-L package, the high-intensity LEDs allow lighting manufacturers to quickly boost performance, reduce size and lower system cost for applications such as track, outdoor and stadium lighting.

Featuring Cree’s innovative primary optic design that radically reduces optical source size by more than 50 percent, the XLamp XP-L High Intensity LED claims to deliver unprecedented candela at 185 lumens per watt at one watt. The High Intensity LED offers a drop-in ready upgrade for XP-based luminaire designs, enabling manufacturers to achieve higher luminous intensity with minimal redesign to accelerate time to market.

Dave Emerson, vice president and general manager for Cree LEDs, said: “The XP-L High Intensity LED will allow lighting designers to fundamentally change the way they think about using LEDs in high intensity lighting and enable lighting manufacturers to reach performance levels previously not possible.”

Characterized and binned at 1050 mA, 85°C, the XP-L High Intensity LED is available in up to 90 CRI and color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 8300 K. 6,000 hours of LM-80 long-term testing data is available for the XP-L High Intensity LED for lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification.
