The XP-G3 S Line LEDs deliver high-power lighting technology, optimised for long-lifetime, high-power general lighting sensor and IoT-based applications  such as commercial indoor, parking, industrial, and roadway.

Connected lighting systems use information from occupancy sensors and other sources to continuously react to the target environment, dimming or switching off unneeded lights to conserve 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.

Such additional dimming and switching cycles put more stress on the LED system and can limit the luminaire’s lifetime. Now, through innovations in component architecture, the XLamp XP-G3 S Line LED can withstand double the number of switching cycles when compared to competing LEDs in its class.

The new XP-G3 S Line LED further improves the standard XP-G3 with better reliability through switching and dimming cycles, improved resistance to sulphur exposure and higher light output and efficacy. This more robust version of the XP-G3 LED delivers very strong LED system reliability in all lighting applications, including those with harsher environments.

Said Mario Sergio Martins, co-owner at Genesis Devices & Equipment: “Our customers want LED solutions that are highly efficient, cost effective and reliable enough to last in the harsh outdoor environments of Brazil.

“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,” said Dave Emerson, Cree LEDs executive vice president and general manager. “LED lighting is now the industry standard. Looking forward, the lighting market will require LEDs designed to withstand the rigors of connected intelligent lighting.

“Cree’s new S Line LEDs [therefore] employ a unique chip and package architecture that delivers the reliability and performance to withstand harsh environments, repeated dimming and on/off cycles.”

The XP-G3 S Line LED provides an easy upgrade path for existing XP-based LED systems, which allows manufacturers to quickly implement these LED innovations into their designs. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. The XP-G3 S Line LED has LM-80 data available to enable luminaires to immediately meet the requirements for DesignLights Consortium qualification.
