Cree unveils complete portfolio of RSW LED streetlights

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has unveiled the full range of its RSW LED street luminaires with the introduction of three new models that deliver comfortable, uniform and dark-sky-friendly LED lighting to roadway applications. The new streetlights complete the RSW Series portfolio, which is claimed to be the first generation of LED streetlights to deliver LED energy savings and reliability in preferred color temperatures. 

The three new models join the initial launch of the small form factor and replace high-intensity discharge fixtures of 70-100W HPS, 150W HPS, 250W HPS and 400W HPS. The RSW Series now offers a unified solution for towns, cities, states and utilities that addresses street lighting needs from driveways to interstates.

Utilizing Cree's WaveMax technology to deliver uniformity, color quality and efficacy, the RSW Series targets street lighting for residential streets, interchanges and expressways. The new luminaires deliver efficacy of up to 115LPW (lumens per Watt) at color temperatures of 3000K or 4000K and a color rendering index (CRI) of 80. The result is enhanced visual comfort, reduced glare and higher-quality street lighting for roadways using less energy, claims Cree. The series is also smart-city ready, enabled by a standard NEMA 7-pin socket.

"The RSW Series is poised to become our premiere intelligent street light solution," says David Elien, senior VP of lighting. "Cree's RSW Series ensures customers now have the opportunity to utilize warmer color temperatures for their street lighting needs without sacrificing LED performance and energy savings."

The RSW Series features a new housing for easy installation and long-life durability that also mitigates light pollution. It is designed to meet a vast majority of challenging roadway and street-lighting applications and is a suitable platform solution for municipalities, cities and departments of transportation.

The complete RSW Series is on display in booth #2637 at the LIGHTFAIR International show in San Diego, CA, USA (26-28 April). The 70-100W HPS replacement is shipping now, and the rest of the new RSW Series models will be available in late summer.
