Cree Demonstrates Prototype LR6 LED Downlight with 102 Lumens per Watt Fixture Efficacy

Building on its leadership in LED lighting, Cree announces it is demonstrating a prototype version of the LR6 LED recessed downlight that consumes just 6.5 W of electricity, resulting in 665 lumens, an efficacy of 102 lumens per watt and a power factor greater than 0.9.
“By using the latest Cree LEDs, the XLamp® XP-G, we were able to achieve this great efficiency,” said Gerry Negley, chief technologist for Cree LED Lighting. “We continue to push the envelope with LED technology—because consumers deserve high-quality light without toxic mercury or wasted energy.”
