Cree is an innovator of Wolfspeed power and radio frequency (RF) semiconductors, lighting class LEDs and lighting products. The company has now introduced the XLamp XP-G3 S Line LED. This is an extension of the industry-leading XLamp XP-G3 LED that is optimized for the connected lighting future.
With the XP-G3 S Line, Cree offers high-power LED technology optimized for long-lifetime, high-power general lighting applications where sensors and the internet of things (IoT) are becoming common, such as commercial indoor, parking, industrial and roadway.
Connected lighting systems use information from occupancy sensors and other sources to continuously respond to the target environment, dimming or switching off unrequired lights to save energy.
On average, a connected lighting system will dim or switch off lights up to 10 times more often than with a standard lighting system. These additional dimming and switching cycles put more strain on the LED system and can affect the lifetime of the luminaire.
With innovations in component architecture, the latest XLamp XP-G3 S Line LED can resist double the number of switching cycles when compared to various other LEDs in its class.
The new XP-G3 S Line LED further enhances the standard XP-G3 with increased reliability through switching and dimming cycles, improved resistance to sulfur exposure and higher light output and efficacy. This sturdier version of the XP-G3 LED delivers excellent LED system reliability in all lighting applications, including those with harsher environments.
“Our customers want LED solutions that are highly efficient, cost effective and reliable enough to last in the harsh outdoor environments of Brazil,” said Mario Sergio Martins,co-owner, Genesis Devices & Equipment (GDE). “With the new XP-G3 S Line LEDs, Cree is delivering a solution that is quickly and easily implemented to improve the performance and reliability for all my products, whether they include IoT controls now or will be retrofitted later in the field.”
“Cree’s lighting-class LEDs enabled the lighting revolution and LED lighting is now the industry standard. Looking forward, the lighting market will require LEDs designed to withstand the rigors of connected intelligent lighting,” said Dave Emerson, Cree LEDs executive vice president and general manager. “Cree’s new S Line LEDs employ a unique chip and package architecture that delivers the reliability and performance to withstand harsh environments, repeated dimming and on/off cycles.”
