Cree Introduces Replacement for Halogen MR16 Lamps

TrueWhite LED lamps use 83 percent less energy

Cree has introduced the MR16 Series LED lamps with TrueWhite Technology, that delivers the soft, diffused light of a traditional 50W halogen MR16 lamp. According to the company, the lamps consume up to 83 percent less energy and are designed to meet ENERGY STAR qualification.

"Cree's latest innovation is poised to replace the billions of MR16 lamps currently installed around the world by delivering an unprecedented combination of energy savings, colour quality and compatibility. The Cree MR16 Series TrueWhite LED lamp is setting a new standard for the category," said Norbert Hiller, Cree executive vice president, lighting.

Featuring a design that delivers greater than 580 lumens in conjunction with a proprietary lens, Cree MR16 Series TrueWhite LED lamps eliminate the glare commonly associated with 50W halogen MR16 lamps to deliver a soft, diffused light with category-leading colour rendering index of 92.
