Cree introduces the XLamp MK-R LEDs. The products leverage the SC³
Technology next-generation LED platform to deliver up to 200
lumens-per-watt (at 1 W, 25°C) LEDs.
With its new XLamp MK-R , Cree introduces a new
product line for efficiencies of up to 200 lumens per watt. These LEDs
make the next generation of 100+ lumens-per-watt system possible for
high-lumen applications, including outdoor and indoor directional
applications, such as halogen replacement lamps.
MK-R LEDs are available in EasyWhite color temperatures. They provide
the LED industry's best color consistency for designs that use only one
LED, claims Cree. For systems that use multiple LEDs, MK-R enables
manufacturers to use fewer LEDs while still maintaining light output and
quality, which translates to lower system cost.
The MK-R LED features a 7 mm x 7 mm footprint with a 6 mm optical
source and delivers up to 1600 lumens at 15 W, 85°C. Characterized at
85°C, the MK-R component is available in 2700 K to 7000 K color
temperatures and offers minimum CRI options of 70, 80 and 90 (at
selected color temperatures). The MK-R LED is the ninth product built on
Cree’s SC³ Technology platform. The innovative platform leverages
Cree’s advanced silicon-carbide technology, features advancements in LED
chip architecture and phosphor and boasts a new package design to
deliver the most advanced LED components in the industry.
XLamp MK-R LED samples are available now; and production quantities are available with standard lead times.
