Cree Redefines Outdoor Rural Lighting Performance

LED rural utility lighting brings reliability, affordability, and ease of installation

Cree has introduced the LED Rural Utility Light (RUL) Series, designed to deliver an unprecedented combination of price, performance and quality to accelerate adoption of LED lighting across rural areas in North America.

The first of Cree's innovative outdoor LED luminaires to address the estimated 10 to 13 million rural street and area light fixtures installed, the new RUL Series delivers a better, more affordable lighting experience for residential roadways, security, storage and loading areas with game-changing efficacy, rapid payback of less than one year* and Cree's industry-leading 10-year warranty.

"The RUL Series exemplifies Cree's commitment to relentless innovation, resulting in another uncompromising LED luminaire that challenges long-established assumptions for what's possible in lighting, while lowering the cost of ownership," said Norbert Hiller, Cree executive vice president, lighting. "By providing unmatched performance and price, the RUL Series improves the value of LED lighting for our customers and enables municipalities and utilities to take advantage of Cree's best-in-class solutions for all of their outdoor lighting needs."

Featuring elements of Cree's groundbreaking SC5 Technology Platform, the Cree LED Rural Utility Light outperforms incumbent high-pressure sodium (HPS) and mercury-vapour (MV) technology, as well as competing LED products, to provide unrivaled 110 lumens-per-watt efficacy and system-level performance for expedient payback and reduced cost of ownership for municipalities and utilities.

Featuring a light-weight design, tool-less entry and straight-in wiring, the 4000K colour temperature Cree LED Rural Utility Lights enables seamless installation in addition to long-term maintenance savings over the 100,000-hour-rated lifetime.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
