Cree Ships Suspended LED Luminaire
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.
