Cree, Inc. introduces the XLamp® XM-L2 EasyWhite® LED, delivering more than 1,100 lumens of color-consistent light from a 5 mm x 5 mm package and enabling a 38 percent gain in light output and efficacy as a drop-in upgrade to the first-generation XM-L EasyWhite LED. Built on Cree's EasyWhite technology, which combines the industry's tightest color binning and intense light output from a single LED, the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED is optimized to replace halogen technology.
Developed to be used as a single component in small form factor lighting designs, the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED is designed to emulate the appearance and match the color consistency of halogen lamps. The XM-L2 EasyWhite LED offers 2-step and 4-step MacAdam ellipse bins to deliver the industry's best color consistency, which is required for retail, residential, museum and hospitality applications.
Characterized at 85 °C, the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED is available with 80 and 90 minimum CRI options, color temperatures ranging from 5000 K to 2700 K and forward voltage configurations of 6 V or 12 V. Lighting manufacturers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification can take advantage of the XM-L2 EasyWhite LED's "successor" status to the XM-L EasyWhite LED and use just 3,000 hours of LM-80 data-half of what is normally required-for ENERGY STAR qualification.
