The fourth generation of XP-G products introduces an optimized optical profile designed to maximize on‑axis light output and yield substantial improvements over the previous XP-G3 LEDs. These enhancements include a smaller light emitting surface (LES) and up to 69% higher intensity, resulting in tighter beam angles and higher candela. The XP-G4 delivers exceptional color-over-angle performance and a 70 degree cutoff which dramatically improves coupling efficiency with secondary optics compared to all competing high-power LEDs.

“We are excited to launch the next generation of our industry-leading XP-G family of products. This fourth generation offers a remarkable 41% increase in maximum light output compared to XP-G3 Standard, reaching a maximum of 1,130 lumens,” said Joe Clark, president of Cree LED. “This notable performance combined with the latest optical system delivers a ‘no compromise’ solution for both new and existing systems alike.”

Todd Ernst, vice president product at COAST Products, a Cree LED customer, added, “COAST has a 100+ year history of product innovation. As we design our next generation of portable lighting products, we will use Cree LED’s new XP-G4 LED based on its clear product advantages. This new LED family offers both higher intensity and higher maximum current in the familiar XP-G footprint, allowing us to improve the performance of our products.”

The latest generation of XP-G products is optimized for a wide range of both indoor and outdoor directional lighting applications requiring precise light control, good color over angle and long-term reliability. The new XP-G generation is available in correlated color temperatures (CCTs) ranging from 1800K to 6500K and color rendering index (CRI), including 70, 80 and 90 CRI. Additionally, broadcast color options featuring Television Lighting Consistency Index (TLCI) will also be offered.

Product samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times. To learn more about Cree LED’s XPG LEDs, visit:
