Cree LMR4 lighting modules available exclusively via Newark

Multi-channel electronics distributor Newark (part of Premier Farnell) has been named exclusive distributor in North America for the latest range of LED modules from Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA. Available in TrueWhite and EasyWhite technology options (launched last April and August, respectively), the Cree LMR4 modules provide a simple drop-in solution that uniquely integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management.

TrueWhite LMR4 modules consume just 12W whilst delivering 700 lumens at a colour temperature of 2700K with a colour rendering index (CRI) >90. EasyWhite modules address a broader range of applications with a CRI >80. Both technologies support dimming to 5% and are designed to last at least 35,000 hours at L70.

Through its multi-channel approach and ability to support design engineers with extensive technical information and resources such as the element14 online technology portal and eCommunity, Newark aims to help to drive the adoption of LED lighting for both new designs and those that currently use more traditional lighting approaches.

“Cree is a leading name in the LED lighting sector and its LMR4 module product range is another important step forward in accelerating the adoption of versatile, energy-efficient and long-lasting LED solutions,” comments Jeff Uden, Newark’s VP product management.

“Premier Farnell is helping bring the LED lighting revolution to lighting OEMs around the world, and Cree LMR4 modules are now available through its businesses: Newark (US/Canada/Mexico), Farnell (Europe) and element14 (Asia-Pacific),” notes Mark Despotes, Cree’s VP of channel sales. “Simplifying the design-in process can shorten the time-to-market for new LED lighting products, and our Premier Farnell channel partner customers now have access to our industry-proven Cree TrueWhite technology and Cree EasyWhite solutions, allowing them to quickly deliver better products to the market, faster.”
