Mouser ships Cree’s XLamp XT-E LEDs
Distributor Mouser Electronics stocks the upgraded Cree XLamp XT-E LEDs. This new generation incorporates elements of SC5 Technology and includes a high-efficacy (HE) option that delivers a 25 per cent increase in efficacy compared to the previous XT-E LED. It also provides a guaranteed minimum efficacy of 164 lumen/W at 85 degrees C and 350mA. As a result, 130lumen/W or higher at system level is achievable under real operating conditions, says the company. Existing customers can upgrade system performance of applications, such as outdoor and industrial lighting.
The enhanced LEDs are optimised for directional, high-lumen applications, from indoor and outdoor to portable and lamp retrofits. They are housed in a compact, 3.45 × 3.45mm package and are suitable or applications like outdoor and high bay lighting that require long lifetimes at high ambient temperatures. Maximum driver current is 1.5A with low thermal resistance of five degrees C/W, and a wide viewing angle of 115 degrees.
