Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) announces new CXA LED Arrays, boasting high lumen output and high efficacy in a family of single, easy-to-use components. Optimized to simplify designs and lower system cost, Cree’s newest CXA LEDs can deliver system-level performance ranging from 500 to 5000 lumens and up to 146 LED lumens per watt, enabling applications ranging from LED replacement lamps to commercial downlights.
CXA LED Arrays are available in EasyWhite® color temperatures, providing the LED industry’s best color consistency for designs that use only one LED. The CXA LED Arrays are designed to be used as a single component in an LED design – emulating the single-filament appearance of traditional lighting products. One component means simplified design, manufacturing and inventory management – enabling lighting manufacturers to shorten time to market and reduce manufacturing costs.
“We switched to Cree’s new CXA1507 LED Array because it delivers higher performance over other LED arrays,” said Jason Lee, president of Gama Illuminer. “The easy-to-use package of the CXA1507 LED Array with well-designed features and small optical source made design and manufacturing simple.”
The new CXA family offers four new CXA LED Arrays (CXA1507, CXA1512, CXA2520 and CXA2530) delivering different lumen levels in two packages and optical sizes (minimum 80 and 90 CRI available).
“Cree is the only LED manufacturer that can deliver industry-leading performance in all LED packages,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior director marketing, LEDs. “The CXA1512 LED Array can deliver over 1900 lumens at 120 lumens per watt in a very small 9-mm optical source size. Other LED arrays may come close to this level of performance, but not in this small of a form factor. The CXA1512’s small size is critical for enabling low system cost in a wide range of lighting applications, from narrow-beam spotlights to wide-area lights.”
