Cree Broadens LED Module Family to Further Accelerate Adoption of LED Lighting

Cree, Inc., a market leader in LED lighting, is extending its LED module family with the Cree LMR2 LED Module, a compact, high-efficiency module that provides a simple solution for lighting designers and manufacturers looking to offer best-in-class LED lighting. The previously-released Cree LMR4 LED Module is also now available in four color points, 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K, each based on Cree TrueWhite® Technology.

The versatile LMR2 module uses Cree TrueWhite Technology to provide efficient, high-quality light for a variety of applications such as restaurants, retail and hospitality lighting where high CRI and efficacy are required. Its 2.25-inch aperture allows increased design flexibility for applications including pendant lighting, sconces, wall washers, as well as small aperture downlights.

Designed to last at least 35,000 hours and dimmable to 5 percent, the LMR2 module delivers 650 lumens at color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K with a 90 CRI. It is drop-in ready and provides a comprehensive solution with integrated driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management. Fixture manufacturers also have the option to include a specially designed heat sink to accommodate high-heat applications, such as downlights.

“The LMR series of LED modules continues Cree’s long history of innovation in LEDs for lighting applications,” said Scott Schwab, Cree LED Module product line manager. “We are extending our portfolio of application-optimized LED Modules which are designed to help OEM customers quickly and simply design, and bring to market, fixtures based on our lighting-class LEDs.”

Sample evaluation kits are available now directly from Cree’s website, www.cree.com/modules, and production quantities are available with standard lead times through both Cree and Cree module distributors.
