Cree offers high-density LED array with twice intensity at less power

September 20, 2013 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Cree has introduced what it calls the industry’s first High-Density (HD) LED Arrays. With the technology, the LED manufacturer doubles the system intensity of spotlights compared to previous arrays. The high lumen density of these arrays enables major reductions in system cost and power consumption.

With the HD Array, the CXA1520 LED, lighting manufacturers can create products that deliver the same intensity and light quality as 39-W ceramic metal halide (CMH) at up to 50% lower power.

The High-Density 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 3478 lumens at 33W, 85°C. Available in ANSI White and four-step EasyWhite binning, the new arrays feature 2700 K through 5000 K CCTs, with 70, 80 and 95-CRI options.
