The new 6000 lumen LMH2 LED module from Cree (NASDAQ: CREE) is the industry’s brightest module to offer color quality greater than 90 CRI at a consistent efficacy of 85 lumens per watt across a wide range of color temperatures (3000K, 3500K and 4000K). The no-compromise LED solution is the ideal replacement for 100-watt ceramic metal halide (CMH) lamps in high-ceiling applications, using 30 percent less power, lasting three times as long and delivering instant-on, dimmable light.
“The need for high CRI and high lumen output LED luminaires has been growing rapidly over the last year. We constantly have requests for these luminaires to be used in shopping malls, airports, convention centers and theaters.” said Larry Rosenwinkel, Fixtures and Specifications Manager, Facilities Solutions Group (FSG). “Before the introduction of the 6000 lumen Cree ® LMH2 LED module, there were no feasible LED solutions to light these spaces, but now we can specify LED light sources for these spaces.”
The Cree LMH2 family of modules delivers the only light source that can address such a wide range of lighting applications in a common form factor. This allows lighting manufacturers to create an entire product portfolio with just one set of tooling and one optical design. Lighting products based on the LMH2 LED module also enable lighting designers to illuminate a space with one light source and technology, helping to eliminate the problems that come with using different lighting technologies such as color consistency and re-lamping.
“We have designs based on the 850, 1250, 2000, 3000 and 4000 lumen LMH2 LED modules. The 6000 lumen LMH2 will allow us to further expand the breadth of our products using the same form factor,” said Wesley Johnson, Director of National Sales, Hi-Lite Manufacturing Company. “Our customers will now have a full suite of LED pendant lights and wall mounted fixtures with the same high CRI, same color and same warranty that allows them to address a variety of ceiling height applications.”
