XLamp XP-G2 LEDs deliver 20% more efficiency
Characterized and binned at 85°C, the new XP-G2 LED leverages the same footprint (3.45mm x 3.45mm) and is compatible optically with the original XP-G LED – providing drop-in-ready performance enhancements to shorten the LED fixture design cycle and improve customer time to market. The XP-G2 LED can enable a broad range of high-lumen applications, from indoor and outdoor to portable and lamp retrofits.
Built on the SC³ Technology Platform, the XP-G2 LEDs delivers up to 151 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 85°C or 165 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 25°C in cool white (both at 6000K). In warm white (3000K), the XP-G2 LED delivers up to 133 lumens per watt at 350 mA, 85°C or 145 lumens per watt at 350mA, 25°C. The SC³ Technology Platform leverages Cree’s silicon carbide technology, features advancements in LED chip architecture and phosphor and showcases a new package design.
Luminaire makers seeking Energy Star qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed time to market. XP-G2 LEDs are a “successor” product to the original XP-G LED for LM-80 data – accelerating qualification of luminaires using just 3000 hours of LM-80 data, instead of the normal 6000 hours. The XP-G2 LED is also UL-recognized and features a level 4 rating.
Cree XLamp XP-G2 LED samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
