The CXA2011 LED array simplifies high-brightness lamp designs, The LMH6 module delivers 2000 to 2900 lm with 230V input, and the XLamp XM-L brings EasyWhite color mixing technology to a smaller component package. 

Cree made several solid-state-lighting (SSL)-centric announcements in the past few days with new module, array, and component LED-based products. The CX2011 array delivers 4000 lm for high-output omnidirectional lamps and directional downlights, while the XLamp XM-L targets 25W replacement lamps. The LMH6 module targets commercial lighting specifically in the European and Asian markets, operating from a 230V input.

With the CX2011 array, Cree seeks to greatly simplify SSL product designs. The array features screw mounts that simplify the lamp or luminaire manufacturing process eliminating the need for reflow soldering. The array delivers 4000 lm at 1A drive current and 85°C operating temperature. The 5000K color array uses Cree’s EasyWhite color-mixing technology and is available in 2- or 4-step MacAdam ellipse bins.

Gama Illuminer president Jason Lee is clearly a proponent of the new array design saying, “The CXA2011 LED has been incredibly easy to work with, enabling us to create very high-performance products.” That ease of use was Cree’s goal. Cree senior director of marketing for LED components Mike Watson said, “Combining fast and flexible system design with ease-of-manufacturing, the CXA2011 LED array helps customers quickly create a broad range of LED-based designs.”

Cree asserts that EasyWhite products offer the industry’s tightest LED-to-LED color consistency, and the new product brings that consistency to an array designed specifically for general-illumination applications. About the array, Gama Illuminer’s Lee said, “It gave us a plug-and-play solution with the right combination of brightness, efficacy and color consistency with real-world 85°C specifications. Creating a design with CXA2011 was simple and manufacturing will be underway in record time.”
