Cree Adds "Sunset Dimming Experience" To Its LMH2 Module Portfolio

Cree, Inc. introduces the LMH2 LED Module with sunset dimming – Cree’s game-changing dimming technology that provides a dimming experience similar to incandescent lighting. The new module enables a natural dimming profile that was previously unachievable with any other energy-saving technology. Cree’s sunset dimming technology dims smoothly from 2700K to 1800K delivering rich, warm light for applications requiring a traditional style of dimming such as hospitality and residential settings, while still achieving over 80 percent energy reduction compared to energy-inefficient incandescents.

The robust LMH2 module family now lets lighting manufacturers address a wide range of lighting technologies with a one module form factor. The aesthetically pleasing module leverages one product platform to create an entire luminaire portfolio – delivering the investment protection necessary to quickly and cost effectively address most lighting applications.

“The Cree® LMH2 LED module enables us to address a wide range of lighting applications with a single platform, providing investment protection,” said Kenny Eidsvold, president, Intense Lighting, Inc. “We recently launched a new product line based on the 4000 lumen LMH2 LED module. Now with the introduction of Cree’s sunset dimming option, we can further expand our product line to offer quality LED lighting solutions for hospitality, restaurant and residential applications.”

Available in a range of lumens (850 to 3000) at 2700K and multiple driver options, LMH2 modules with sunset dimming technology can plug-in seamlessly to existing LMH2 module drivers and reflectors, and are also compatible with TRIAC dimmers—meaning the high-performance module can be easily retrofitted in any room with traditional dimming technologies or used in new installations with 0 - 10V or Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) dimming technologies.

“Cree’s LMH2 sunset dimming is the best implementation of sunset dimming that we have found on the market today,” said Fred Farzan, president of Nora Lighting. “Our customers really like the color quality and natural dimming the LMH2 sunset dimming provides. The LMH2 module with sunset dimming opens up new markets for us and allows us to address applications that traditionally use incandescent and halogen light sources.”  

“We really like Cree LMH2’s implementation of sunset dimming,” said Mike Wang, vice president, lighting engineering, Edison Price Lighting.  “The LMH2 LED module delivers rich, warm light while maintaining high CRI to provide the look and feel of a traditional incandescent lamp.”

Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent, the LMH2 module comes with Cree’s industry-leading five-year warranty. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.

Cree LMH2 LED Modules with sunset dimming samples are available now. Production quantities are available with standard lead times. Please visit www.cree.com/modules to learn more.
