Cree adds 2000lm and 3000lm versions of LMH2 LED modules

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has extended its LMH2 module family (launched last November) with new 2000 and 3000 lumen output options, delivering what is claimed to be better performance, longer lifetime and lower system cost than comparable compact fluorescents in commercial lighting, and offering a wider range of lighting applications within a compact, cost-effective design.

The LMH2 is claimed to be the only LED module delivering 82 lumens-per-watt system efficacy combined with a color rendering index (CRI) greater than 90 in all available color temperatures. The LMH2 features Cree TrueWhite Technology, delivering high efficiency while maintaining color consistency over the product’s rated lifetime. LMH2 modules are available in a range of lumen, color temperature and driver options, which is claimed to enable lighting manufacturers to meet their needs quickly and easily.

“With its high lumen output and superior combination of high efficacy and high CRI, the new Cree LMH2 LED module enables us to address the commercial lighting market,” says Antonio Di Gangi, general manager of Italy-based lighting firm DGA srl.

The compact, two-piece design of the LMH2 module separates the light source and power supply to enable a wide selection of mounting and wiring options, giving lighting manufacturers the flexibility needed for rapid LED luminaire design and development. The modules also feature primary thermal management, potentially eliminating the need for costly secondary thermal management systems.

“The LMH2 LED module family now obsoletes the need to even consider compact fluorescent alternatives,” claims Mike Watson, Cree’s senior director marketing, LED components. “Not only does the family of LMH2 LED modules outperform this traditional lighting technology, but it does so across a wide range of color and lumen options with unparalleled color quality, efficacy and warranty, enabling lighting manufacturers to address an entire range of lighting applications.”

Designed for 50,000 hours of operation, LMH2 modules deliver 82 lumens-per-watt system efficacy combined with 90+ CRI in color temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K. The module is available with Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) and DALI touch dimming (dimmable to 5%). Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.

Cree is exhibiting the module used in different applications in Hall 4.2, Stand G71 at the Light+Building 2012 trade fair Frankfurt, Germany (15-20 April). DGA luminaires based on the LMH2 family are on display in Hall 3.1, Stand C41.
