April 3, 2012
Date Announced: 03 Apr 2012 Rapid Electronics has announced that it is able to offer for the very first time products from Cree, one of the world's leading manufacturer of LED lighting solutions. The first products available are the XLamp XP-E, XP-G and ML-B series of miniature power LEDs, which combine high output and efficiency lighting performance with a small footprint and are ideal for integration with indoor and outdoor lighting. Producing a high level of light output from a single die LED, the XP-E and XP-G are high efficiency devices which benefit from a wide viewing angle, symmetrical package, small footprint, unlimited floor life and electrically neutral thermal path. They can be mounted on PCBs and are the ideal component for use as LED light bulbs. The lens size (diameter 2.5 and 2.6mm) and availability from Rapid in white, warm white, neutral white and cool white suit these lamps for a wide range of applications, such as outdoor lighting, colour changing displays, portable and personal lighting systems, indoor directional lighting, transportation, stage and studio, commercial and emergency vehicle lighting. The ML-B range of power LEDs are supplied in warm white and cool white, with colour temperatures that range from 2700K to 7000K, luminosity from 23.5lm to 30.6lm and a maximum forward current of 175mA. These flat profile LED lamps have a high output, lighting-class performance and a smooth look that make them industry leading performers in quarter watt solid state lighting.With features that include a wide viewing angle, uniform light output and precise chromaticity binning, the ML-B’s are ideal for use in applications such as linear lighting, under cabinet illumination, fluorescent retrofits, T5/T8 bulbs, retail and refrigerated display and panel lights. Richard Philpot, LED product manager at Rapid, said: ‘We are delighted to be introducing Cree to our extensive offering of LED components. The high performance, efficiency and versatility of these first products are a fantastic showcase for Cree for our customers and we look forward to adding more Cree LEDs to our ranges.’Up to +200 price breaks are offered on these products.
