Cree extends EasyWhite technology to LED modules

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has expanded its LED Module LMR4 product line by incorporating its EasyWhite technology and introducing a broad range of available color temperatures.

Cree says that the expansion of LMR4 portfolio demonstrates its commitment to accelerating the adoption of LED lighting by simplifying the design process and shortening time-to-market for new LED-based fixtures. Lighting manufacturers now have more options as they develop LED lighting products.

“The addition of EasyWhite options and additional color points gives us increased flexibility when designing fixtures,” comments DMF Lighting’s president & CEO Mark Danesh. “Since the LMR4 is drop-in-ready, we can now address more applications within a limited development budget; from general illumination to our most demanding customers such as restaurants or museums, which benefit from the higher light quality of Cree’s TrueWhite technology.”

The LED Module LMR4 with EasyWhite technology uniquely integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management, making the compact module easy to integrate and fast to market, claims Cree. Designed to last 35,000 hours while consuming just 12W of power, it offers 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K color temperatures at a color rendering index (CRI) of 80.

“LED Module customers now have access to EasyWhite technology, allowing them to expand their design possibilities while shortening the manufacturing cycle for new products,” says Scott Schwab, Cree’s LED Module product line manager. “This further broadens Cree's portfolio of application-optimized LED modules, specifically designed to meet the needs of our OEMs.”

The LED Module LMR4 with EasyWhite technology is available in production quantities now with standard lead times. Also available are new module evaluation kits featuring four modules with a mix of Cree TrueWhite and EasyWhite options.
