Cree LED breaks 100 LPW record
Indoor lighting LED LR24HE unveiled at LIGHTFAIR International 2010 in Las Vegas lasts over 50,000 hours and delivers 3200 lumens at 3500 K with a 90 CRI
Cree announces a new LED-based troffer that delivers more than 100 lumens per Watt fixture efficacy, claimed to be the first indoor fixture to deliver this level of performance.
Shown at the Cree booth, #149 at Lightfair 2010 in Las Vegas, the LR24HE uses Cree TrueWhite Technology and is 30% more efficient than the best 2-foot-by-2-foot fluorescent troffers and 15% more efficient than the best 2-foot-by-4-foot fluorescent troffers.
“By using the LR24HE, which is the most efficient product for general illumination, lighting designers and architects now have the freedom to reintroduce accent and decorative lighting and still meet energy codes or achieve LEED points,” remarked Gary Trott, Cree VP of market development, LED Lighting. “Cree continues to leverage TrueWhite Technology to deliver breakthrough new performance levels.”
The LR24HE is planned for commercial availability in late summer and will offer a five year warranty.
Cree will also be reducing the price of its award-winning LR24 LED troffer by 15% to reduce upfront cost and accelerate the LED lighting revolution.
