Cree Ships Suspended LED Luminaire

First indirect/direct suspended luminaire eliminates the 'cave effect'

Cree has announced that its LN Series suspended luminaire is now available to ship. With its architectural design and WaveMax Technology, the Cree LN Series suspended luminaire is said to be create better light from every angle.

Unlike direct linear lighting, this new technology solution from Cree eliminates glare and unattractive ceiling contrasts known as the 'cave effect' in which ceilings appear darker than the work spaces below, causing potential discomfort and eyestrain.

"Cree continues to demonstrate that LED technology can provide fundamentally superior light experiences that go beyond energy and maintenance savings, to help improve your comfort, productivity and safety," said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting. "The Cree LN Series suspended luminaire challenges the possibilities of today's lighting, with a stunning new form factor that's intelligent in both design and function, delivering a game-changing combination of control, uniformity and efficiency for the finest visual experience."

As the first indirect/direct luminaire from Cree, the LN Series delivers 60 percent of its light upward to dispel the striped ceiling contrasts common with direct and indirect uplight fixtures, resulting in superb illumination to the task surface for greater productivity and heightened alertness. With a unique modular light engine for easier job design, specification and installation, the new Cree LN Series suspended luminaire is suitable for both new construction and retrofit applications.

"The Cree LN Series luminaire creates uniform lighting on work surfaces and its ability to dim allows for flexibility in daily tasks. The form of the light is simple and the lens allows daylight to shine through when the lights are turned off," said Jeffrey Paine, Founding Partner at Duda|Paine Architects in Durham, NC.

In addition to standard 0-10V dimming, the LN Series is also available with Cree SmartCast Technology.

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.
