Cree, Inc. has announced High-Density (HD) LED Arrays – a breakthrough technology that doubles the system intensity of spot lights compared to previous arrays. The new HD class of CXA Arrays provide unrivaled lumen density, enabling major reduction in system cost and power consumption. The first HD Array, the CXA1520 LED, enables lighting manufacturers to create a new generation of products that delivers the same intensity and light quality as 39 W ceramic metal halide (CMH) at up to 50 percent lower power.
“The new CXA1520 LED Array delivers an impressive amount of light from a very small source. I have not seen another integrated array that can match this level of lumen density,” said Mark Groenke, VP of engineering at ConTech Lighting. “The CXA1520 LED Array enables ConTech Lighting’s newest LED fixtures to exceed the efficiency and life of our ceramic metal halide fixture offerings while maintaining intensity and color quality.”
The High-Density Cree XLamp Array extends Cree’s CXA family to give lighting manufacturers a single integrated array family to address lighting applications from general purpose floods to specialty retail spot lights. Cree XLamp CXA1520 LED Arrays deliver up to 3,478 lumens at 33 watts, 85°C. Available in ANSI White and four-step EasyWhite binning, the new Arrays feature 2,700K through 5,000K CCTs, with 70, 80 and 95 CRI options.
“We have several CXA1507 and CXA1512 LED Array designs and we’re excited that the new CXA1520 LED Array shares the same light emitting size as the CXA1507 and CXA1512 LED Arrays,” said Tom Tang, chairman and CEO, Tons Lightology, Inc. “This allows us to address very high output applications without changing the optics.”
XLamp CXA1520 LED Array samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit www.cree.com/cxa to learn more about the new Cree CXA LEDs.
