TrueWhite LED arrays deliver more than 140 lumens per watt

Cree claims a first for 3500 lumens in 19mm light emitting surface

Cree has announced what it believes are the first LED arrays to deliver 3500 lumens of high quality light in the 19mm light emitting surface (LES) required for retail spots.

The TrueWhite LEDS are said to deliver greater than 90 CRI light at more than 140 lumens per watt efficacy in a small 19 mm.

Cree says its TrueWhite LEDs, which are based on its SC5 Technology platform, allow lighting manufacturers to develop LED spots without making trade-offs among colour quality, light output, efficacy, lifetime or size.

"We're excited that with Cree's new TrueWhite LEDs there is no compromise between performance and light quality," said Mike Wang, executive vice president, lighting technologies, Edison Price Lighting.

He added: "Until now, there has not been a compelling reason to replace traditional ceramic metal halide (CMH) light sources with LEDs. Cree's TrueWhite LED is truly game-changing and can further accelerate LED adoption."
