Four new CXA LED arrays combine high performance with ease-of-use

October 23, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Cree announces four 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, these 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.

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).

CXA LED Arrays are available in EasyWhite color temperatures. 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.

The CXA1512 LED Array can deliver over 1900 lumens at 120 lumens per watt in a 9-mm optical source size. While other LED arrays may come close to this level of performance Cree claims that its CXA1512 is the only one that offers at the same time such a small form factor.

Cree XLamp CXA LED Array samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
