New Cree Directional Lamps Light the LED Revolution

Cree, Inc. announces new Cree TrueWhite™ Technology-based directional LED lamps designed to address one of the largest segments of the directional lamp market.

In response to customer requests, Cree is launching a new high-performance BR30 retrofit lamp, the LBR-30™, aimed at replacing energy-wasting incandescent lamps commonly used in tracks, commercial and residential recessed downlights. The new lamp delivers 600 lumens with flood or wide flood distributions, while only consuming 11 Watts. The LBR-30 is planned for availability later this summer.

Cree is also increasing the performance of its LRP-38™ LED lamp. A narrow beam spotlight with tens of thousands of units installed in offices, retail, grocery stores and museums across North America, the LRP-38 delivers exceptional color quality and is designed to last 50,000 hours. The enhanced LRP-38 has received a 20 percent boost in performance, and a 30 percent increase in overall efficacy, enabling replacement of 75 Watt incandescent lamps while consuming 85 percent less energy. Lumen output has increased from 500 lumens to 600 lumens, while input power has been decreased to 11 Watts from 12 Watts.

Cree will be showing its new LRP38-1000L in its Lightfair booth#149, which delivers 1000 lumens of directional light, while consuming only 16 Watts. Availability of the new PAR lamp, in both spot and flood distributions, is expected in fall 2010.

“We continue to extend the availability of Cree TrueWhite Technology into a wider variety of directional lamps,” said Mike Fallon, Cree, vice president, sales, LED Lighting. “Every LED lamp installed in a track or recessed downlight eliminates another energy-wasting incandescent or toxic fluorescent bulb from the market. And since our lamps are designed to last 50,000 hours in open fixtures, end users can reap additional savings by minimized relamping and maintenance.”
