Cree's New Upgrade to the LMR4-LED Module Series Delivers Both High-Quality Light and Efficiency

Cree, Inc., a market leader in LED lighting, announces the new 1000-lumen LMR4 LED module, delivering 66 lumens per watt efficiency in a fully-integrated solution for downlight applications where high-quality light is essential such as commercial, retail and residential.

Featuring Cree TrueWhite® Technology, the LMR4-1000 module provides higher quality light and efficiency, using 42-percent less input power, than 26-watt compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs. The LMR4-1000 is also the only commercially available 2700-K LED module to deliver 1000-lumen output at more than 90 CRI, which can replace 100-watt incandescent bulbs in downlight applications.

“The LMR4-1000 has the proven technology to enable our customers to quickly and easily incorporate beautiful, energy-efficient LED lighting into the marketplace,” said Scott Schwab, product line manager, Cree LED modules. “Building on the success of Cree’s LED module family, the LMR4-1000 provides high-quality light that meets the design requirements for applications such as restaurants, hotels and homes, continuing Cree’s innovation in drop-in ready, integrated solutions for the LED lighting market.”

The Cree LED Module LMR4-1000 integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management, making the compact Cree module drop-in-ready. Designed to last 35,000 hours and dimmable to 5 percent, the LMR4-1000 module is available in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K with more than 90 CRI.
