Cree makes an another breakthrough in lighting with the addition of 80, 85 and 90 color rendering index options to its XLamp® XP-G and XP-E warm-white LEDs. And what is more important, new technologies developed by Cree enable us to get more color rendering options without decrease in the efficiency of the LEDs. New LEDs are supposed to cover the spheres of applications where specific performance characteristics are required, such as retail, medical and architectural applications.
The new high-CRI XP-G LED produces up to 107 lumens at 350 mA in warm white (3000 K) and provides the efficiency of 102 lumens per watt. High-CRI XLamp XP-G and XP-E LEDs are similar to already existing XP-G and XP-E LEDs, so they can easily replace them in existing systems.
With new increased light outputs for Luxeon Rebel ES LEDs Philips Lumileds sets new standards of efficient and low-costing lighting solutions. New optimized LEDs produce more than 300 lumens and efficiency of 100 lumens per watt. With these LEDs lighting producers and designers can considerably lower the cost of their products making them at once more efficient and bright.
Using the new optimized chip platform Osram managed to increase the efficiency of Golden Dragon Plus LED by 30%. This achievement means a great leap in red-light illumination making this type of lighting considerably more powerful and brighter than it was earlier.
This 30% raise in efficiency was achieved for a red 1 mm² thin-film chip with the wavelength of 615 nm (InGaAlP) included in a Golden Dragon Plus package. At 350 mA this chip produces 119 lumens per watt which is the highest efficiency among the same wavelength LEDs.
To meet raising expectations of lighting production companies and designers Philips Lumileds has developed two new Luxeon Rebel LEDs with color temperatures of 2700K and 3000K that use the latest thin film flip chip and proprietary Lumiramic phosphor technologies. New LUXEON Rebel Emitter offer the producers and designers of lighting facilities the efficiency of 80 lumens per watt and up to 95 lumens per watt at 350 mA and 3000K.
As the leader at lighting solutions market Cree offers its customers a range of ne XP-C LEDs with a variety of color binning. From today XP-C is available in royal blue, blue, green, amber, red-orange and red colors.
Designed for half-watt operation these new XLamp XP-C color LEDs become a low-cost solution for a number of applications where LEDs with various colors are required.
The company introduced Warm and Neutral binning for its most powerful and efficient XP-G LED.
The warm white XP-G LED produces up to 114 lumens and 109 lumens per watt at 350 mA. At 1.0 A it emits up to 285 lumens at 84 lumens per watt, which is four times higher than was available earlier with XR-E warm white LED. And for the neutral-white XP-G LED these figures reach up to 139 lumens and 132 lumens per watt at 350 mA and up to 463 lumens at 1.5 A, which is four times the light output of the XLamp XR-E cool-white LED.
To meet raising expectations of lighting production companies and designers Philips Lumileds has developed a small and powerful Luxeon C LED. This LED provides us with an efficient cost-effective solution to cover hundreds of applications in various spheres.
With Luxeon C the producers of lighting products can lower the operation costs and energy consumption to provide their customers with highly efficient and cheap solutions for a number of applications.
Constantly improving its products and increasing the efficiency of LEDs Cree makes a great move by announcing higher-flux bins for warm- and cool-white XLamp® XP-E LEDs and higher maximum forward currents for both XLamp XP-E and XP-G LEDs.
New cool white XP-E R3 LEDs produce 122-130 lumens at 350 mA and up to 116 lumens per watt. With warm color temperature XP-E Q3 bin we can get now 94-100 Lumens at 350 mA.
A real achievement in LED industry – bright and efficient Cree’s Xlamp® XP-E LED - is now commercially available. For the producers of LED-lighting products it opens new extremely wide horizons and provides us with means of creating high-end and powerful flashlights for outdoor applications. At 350 mA XP-E produces light output in 122 lumens at 4500K.
This innovative LED can expand the whole industry of outdoor lighting as it enables the producers to use less LEDs for high output as well as decrease the costs of production. With this LED we can make our flashlight more powerful, multi-functional and efficient for a number of application spheres.
To meet raising expectations of lighting production companies and designers Cree improves its XLamp® XP family with XP-C LEDs offering more than 100 lumens per watt at 350 mA. With this Cree entirely changes the portfolio of lighting-class LEDs and provides its customers with high-power components to suit their needs.
With new LEDs available in cool and warm color temperatures and emitting up to 107 lumens at 350mA Cree again confirms its leading positions at lighting solutions market and provides the flashlights' producers with means to cover high-performance requiring spheres of applications and supply their customers with low-price but bright and efficient products.
Nine new color temperatures of Luxeon Rebel LEDs are now available to meet all customers' requirements and extend the spheres of lighting applications. In the result of productive LED development and cooperation with leading illumination designers Phlip Lumileds introduced 9 new LED with various color rendering and most efficient performance. These LEDs offer us a wide range of warm and cool color temperatures to apply in great variety of uses and make it possible to create high-efficient lighting products' series. With new Luxeon Rebel LEDs the customers will be able to choose the preferable light bins that will fully correspond their needs and desires.
At LIGHTFAIR International in New York which will take place on May 5-7, 2009 the company is going to introduce its newest product - XLamp® XP-G LED. This new cool white LED will definitely impress the customers with its outstanding characteristics: XP-G emits 139 lumens and 132 lumens per watt at 350 mA. And at 1A this high-efficient LED provides us with 345 lumens – really expiring numbers in comparison with the brightest XR-E LED.
To serve the everyday growing expectations for lighting solutions Philips Lumileds has developed and released new powerful LED – Luxeon Rebel ES. In their production the company's engineers concentrate on what is really important in LED industry – the maximal output of the LED. Luxeon Rebel ES offers us minimum 100 lumens per watt output what makes it the most efficient LED in the world in this moment.
The company introduced Warm and Neutral binning for its smallest LEDs – XP-E and XP-C. Besides the two cool bins for XLamp XP family are now standardized and correspond defined by ANSI color space: 5700K-6500K. As always, the company aimed to serve its customers needs by offering 75 percent smaller bins for its LEDs which allow us better coloring, consistence and control.
As the largest producer of LEDs Cree goes further in the development and engineering of new products and technologies and introduces us at one stroke two new LEDs. XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs have the smallest in the world footprints and still remain as reliable and efficient in performance as bigger LEDs. With its compact sizes XP-E and XP-C LEDs are ready to extend the possibilities for new-wave flashlight production. Due to its wide viewing angle and low profile these new high-performance LEDs can be sufficiently used in backlighting, signage, indoor and outdoor portable lighting.
