Cree Extends LMH2 LED Modules Series with New 2000 and 3000lm Options

LED lighting leader Cree, Inc., extends the high-performance LMH2 module family with new 2000 and 3000 lumen output options, delivering better performance, longer lifetime and lower system cost than comparable compact fluorescents in commercial lighting. The LMH2 module family now enables a wider range of lighting applications within a compact, cost-effective design.

The LMH2 is the industry’s only LED module family delivering 82 lumens-per-watt system efficacy combined with a CRI greater than 90 in all available color temperatures. The LMH2 LED features Cree TrueWhite® Technology – a revolutionary way to generate white light with LEDs. Cree TrueWhite Technology delivers high efficiency with beautiful light characteristics, while maintaining color consistency over the rated lifetime of the product. The LMH2 module family is available in a range of lumen, color temperature and driver options, enabling lighting manufacturers to meet their needs quickly and easily.

“With its high lumen output and superior combination of high efficacy and high CRI, the new Cree LMH2 LED module enables us to address the commercial lighting market,” said Antonio Di Gangi, General Manager of DGA. “The compact, two-piece design of the LMH2 gives us the flexibility needed for rapid LED luminaire design and development.”

The LMH2 module separates the light source and power supply to enable a wide selection of mounting and wiring options – giving lighting manufacturers the flexibility needed for rapid LED luminaire design and development. LMH2 modules also feature primary thermal management – potentially eliminating the need for costly secondary thermal management systems.

“The LMH2 LED module family now obsoletes the need to even consider compact fluorescent alternatives,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior director marketing, LED components. “Not only does the family of LMH2 LED modules outperform this traditional lighting technology, but it does so across a wide range of color and lumen options with unparalleled color quality, efficacy and warranty, enabling lighting manufacturers to address an entire range of lighting applications.”

LMH2 modules deliver 82 lumens-per-watt system efficacy combined with 90+ CRI in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K. The module is available with Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) and DALI touch dimming. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent, the LMH2 comes with Cree’s industry-leading warranty. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.
