Mouser Electronics, Inc., the industry’s leading New Product Introduction (NPI) distributor with the widest selection of semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the Cree XLamp MHB-B LEDs. These new high-power LEDs enable designers to more effectively deliver lower system costs for high-lumen, high-efficiency applications designed to meet the new DesignLights Consortium (DLC) 4.0 Premium requirements.
The Cree XLamp MHB-B LEDs, available from Mouser Electronics, incorporate key elements of Cree’s SC5 Technology™ Platform to combine high light output, high efficacy and high reliability to enable high lumen LED designs that are not possible with mid-power LEDs. The LEDs deliver up to 931 lumens at 85 degrees Celsius and 13 percent higher lumens per watt (LPW) than the MHB-A LED in the same 5mm × 5mm package, allowing lighting manufacturers to quickly increase performance for existing MHB designs without any additional investment.
The MHB-B LED enables designs that use significantly lighter and smaller heat sinks than designs based on mid-power LEDs. For example, a high-bay reference design built with MHB-B LEDs delivers 24,000 lumens and more than 130 LPW system efficacy at 44 percent less weight and 36 percent smaller diameter than comparable high bays based on mid-power LEDs. Built on Cree’s high-power ceramic technology, the MHB-B LEDs have LM-80 data available immediately, delivering reported L90 lifetime projections of 60,000 hours at 105 degrees Celsius.
Cree XLamp MHB-B LEDs are available from Mouser Electronics in color temperatures ranging from 2700K to 5000K and color rendering indexes (CRI) of 70, 80, and 90. For more information, visit http://www.mouser.com/new/cree/cree-mhb-b/.
