Developer of LED lighting products, Cree has rolled out the new XLamp ML-E LED lighting. The half-watt LED offers lighting designers with a cost-efficient and compact solution for application in distributed LED arrays. This allows the designers to meet the rigorous performance criteria of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency ENERGY STAR program.
The new lighting-class LED is suitable for applications such as under-cabinet lighting, ceiling-mounted panel lights, and LED fluorescent-tube replacement, all of which need a uniform, smooth appearance. It provides longer reliability, thermal resistance, efficiency, and segment-leading color binning, needed for the ENERGY STAR rated lightings and luminaires.
The XLamp ML-E lighting provides a whole range of features in an affordable package. It offers a maximum luminous flux of 48 lm in warm white lighting, and 58 lm in cool white lighting. Similar to the MX-3 LEDs and the XLamp MX-6, the ML-E LED offers a 120° viewing angle, and a uniform angular chromaticity, for distributed lighting applications. The XLamp ML-E features the ANSI-compliant chromaticity binning that is utilized by the XLamp MX and XP series of LED lightings.
Cree’s Director of Marketing, Paul Thieken stated that the XLamp ML-E LED lighting provides lighting designers an affordable and simple solution for the solid-state lighting market.
