Cree debuts 230V LMH2 LED modules for Europe and Asia markets

To support growing global demand, LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that its LMH2 module (launched last November) is now available in a 230V version for lighting manufacturers based in Europe and Asia. The LMH2 is designed to speed time-to-market and is claimed to be the only LED module delivering 80 lumens-per-watt system efficacy combined with a color rendering index (CRI) greater than 90.

“Cree modules let us quickly and easily create high-performance lighting solutions for our customers,” comments Miroslav Masar, SSL director at OMS s.r.o. of Dojc, Slovakia. “The LMH2 delivers the perfect combination of efficacy, color consistency and cost management,” he adds.

The compact, two-piece module gives lighting manufacturers the flexibility needed for rapid LED luminaire design and development, Cree says. The LMH2 incorporates Cree TrueWhite LED technology for what is claimed to be unrivaled efficacy and CRI, featuring primary optics for superior color uniformity. LMH2 also features primary thermal management – potentially eliminating the need for costly secondary thermal management systems. Optimized for more than downlights and spots, the LMH2 is designed for many lighting applications, including wall sconces, pendant lights, ceiling fans and many other common luminaires in commercial, retail, museums, residential, hospitality and restaurant environments, says Cree.

“The LMH2 is designed with the needs of the 230V European and Asian lighting markets in mind,” says Mike Watson, Cree’s senior director marketing, LED components. “One of the major barriers to LED lighting adoption and design remains upfront cost. The new Cree LMH2 modules can reduce initial luminaire cost and accelerate time-to-market for OEMs,” he claims.

The LMH2 is available with a CRI of 90 at 850 and 1250 lumens and in color temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to 5%, the LMH2 comes with Cree’s new five-year warranty. It is also UL-recognized and complies with multiple international regulatory and safety standards. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.

Sample and production quantities are available with standard lead times from both Cree and Cree distributors.
