LED Tech Steps Up To The Connected Lighting Future


Cree announces the XLamp XP-G3 S Line LED, an extension of the company’s XLamp XP-G3 LED, is 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 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. These additional dimming and switching cycles put more stress on the LED system and can limit the luminaire’s lifetime. 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 also exhibits improved resistance to sulfur exposure and delivers higher light output and efficacy. It provides an easy upgrade path for existing XP-based LED systems. Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. For more vivid illuminations, visit the XP-G3 S Line LED page and also checkout the datasheet.
