Cree launches KR Series LED Downlight to match initial cost of fluorescents

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched what it claims is the first LED downlight designed to deliver specification-grade lighting performance with pricing to match the everyday price of incumbent technology fluorescent-grade downlights. With initial models designed to replace 18W and 26W fluorescent downlights, the KR Series is at least 35% more efficient than incumbent fluorescents and is designed to last up to five times longer.

Designed for new construction, the 6-inch downlight features line voltage dimming to 5%, as well as multiple color point, light output and specification-grade reflector options. The KR Series also features Cree TrueWhite Technology, delivering high efficiency while maintaining color consistency over the rated lifetime of the product. The new downlight is available in 2700K, 3000K and 3500K color temperatures, all with a color rendering index (CRI) of 90, to enable efficient, color-effective light. Designed to last 50,000 hours, it features a five-year warranty.

The KR Series LED Downlight is sold through Cree lighting sales channels, with sample quantities targeted for availability in May. It is being demonstrated at Cree’s lighting booth 3008 at the Lightfair International 2012 trade fairĀ  in Las Vegas (9-11 May).
