Cree, Inc. introduces new mid-power XLamp®
ML-C and ML-E LEDs, bringing increased versatility and flexibility to a wide
spectrum of lighting applications. Designed to accelerate the adoption of
LED lighting, the expanded XLamp ML family now offers red, green and blue
color options, high-voltage and three different price-performance options in
the proven and reliable ML package.
The ML LED high-voltage options can
enable the use of more efficient, smaller drivers to lower cost for
applications such as LED replacement lamps.
XLamp ML LEDs deliver the flexibility and optimization needed to quickly
design a portfolio of products for multiple lighting applications, including
architectural, hospitality, emergency vehicle, decorative lighting, and
linear florescent LED replacements. With a shared 3.5mm x 3.45mm footprint,
customers can quickly and easily expand or update their product portfolio by
leveraging a common ML package.
"Using products from Cree's ML LED family gives us great flexibility," said
Michael Pena, President, Blue Ridge Lighting Solutions. "From a full white
color temperature spectrum and different power ratings to the offer of color
LEDs, the family of ML products gives us the capacity to offer our customers
a full range of lighting options."
"Providing the broadest portfolio of LED components is essential to
accelerate LED adoption," said Mike Watson, Cree senior marketing director,
LED components. "Cree's expanded family of optimized ML LEDs further extends
the options for our customers to support a wide array of lighting
applications without sacrificing lighting-class performance."
The ML-C LED delivers luminous flux up to 37 lumens in cool white (5000 K)
and up to 31 lumens in warm white (3000 K), both at 100 mA. The series
versions of XLamp ML-C and ML-E white LEDs have typical voltages of 6.4V and
9.6V, respectively, at 50 mA. The entire family of XLamp ML white LEDs
provides 6000 hours of LM-80 data available now, which can speed up the
ENERGY STAR® qualification process. The XLamp ML white family is also
available in minimum 80, 85 and 90 CRI options.
