Cree claims 45% higher Lumen density for its Metal COB LEDs

May 11, 2018 // By Julien Happich
Cree has expanded its XLamp High Current LED Array family with new metal-based chip-on-board (COB) CMT LEDs.

In addition to providing up to 45 percent more lumen density and up to 17 percent higher efficacy, all Cree XLamp High Current LED Arrays feature an innovative metal substrate technology that delivers higher reliability than competing metal COBs, claims the manufacturer. With more than 6,000 hours of LM-80 data available, the expanded family of LEDs enables lighting manufacturers to immediately upgrade their designs for DesignLights Consortium and Energy Star eligible applications, such as track, downlight and outdoor lighting.

COB LEDs mount directly to a heat sink without a separate circuit board, simplifying the luminaire manufacturing process and reducing system cost. The CMT LED family includes 10 LEDs across three (9.8 mm, 14.5 mm and 22 mm) light emitting surface (LES) sizes to address a wide variety of applications. Featuring Cree’s EasyWhite bins, the XLamp CMT LED arrays are available in 2700K-6500K CCTs with standard colour options of 70, 80 and 90 CRI and premium colour options that include high fidelity (98 CRI) and specialty colour points.
