Cree launches LED street luminaire for challenging environmental requirements

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced the XSP IP66 LED street luminaires, which are optimized for European and other global environmental requirements. Providing metropolitan and other municipal areas with a durable luminaire that protects critical electrical components from dust, water jets and other potentially damaging environmental factors, the XSP is claimed to be the first real alternative to high-pressure sodium (HPS) street lights with better payback, better performance and better price. Compared to its outdated predecessor, the XSP IP66 uses nearly 50% less energy and is designed to last more than three times longer.

Beyond saving energy and reducing maintenance due to longer lifetime, Cree says that it achieves better control over luminaire output through its NanoOptic Precision Delivery Grid technology compared to a traditional street light. The new XSP IP66 features similar aesthetics to a traditional HPS street light while achieving what is claimed to be unmatched target illumination.  

“XSP IP66 is the ideal choice for metropolitan and other municipal areas looking to save money and reduce maintenance costs,” comments Massimo Targetti, managing director, Cree Europe S.r.l. “Designed to meet the demanding needs of global markets, the XSP IP66 represents the perfect combination of high-performance design and advanced LED technology,” he adds. “The optimized LED street luminaire design makes it easy for municipalities to upgrade from incumbent technologies for both retrofit and new construction applications.”

The XSP IP66 offers a ten-year warranty and is available in both single and double module configurations. The luminaire also features thermal management and electronics critical to high-reliability operation in the most challenging applications. The result is a high-performance luminaire that does not compromise longevity or light quality at the cost of performance. The new luminaire delivers a range of lumen packages and distributions optimized for the most common street-light applications.
