Cree’s 1000lm LMR4 LED module outshines 26W CFLs, 100W incandescents

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the 1000 lumen LMR4 LED module, delivering 66 lumens per watt efficiency in a fully integrated solution for downlight applications where high-quality light is essential (such as commercial, retail and residential).

Featuring Cree TrueWhite Technology, the LMR4-1000 provides higher-quality light and efficiency — using 42% less input power — than 26W compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, it is reckoned. It is also the only commercially available 2700K LED module to deliver 1000 lumen output at a color rendering index (CRI) of more than 90, which can replace 100W incandescent bulbs in downlight applications.

“The LMR4-1000 has the proven technology to enable our customers to quickly and easily incorporate beautiful, energy-efficient LED lighting into the marketplace,” says Scott Schwab, product line manager, Cree LED modules. “The LMR4-1000 provides high-quality light that meets the design requirements for applications such as restaurants, hotels and homes, continuing Cree’s innovation in drop-in ready, integrated solutions for the LED lighting market,” he adds.

The LMR4-1000 integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management, making the compact module drop-in-ready. Designed to last 35,000 hours and dimmable to 5%, it is available in color temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K with more than 90 CRI.

LED fixtures designed with Cree LMR series modules can be seen by visiting Atlantic Lighting (booth #1260), DMF Lighting (booth #925), Intense Lighting (booth #2945), and Nora Lighting (booth #2229) at the Lightfair International event (LFI 2011) in Philadelphia, PA, USA (17–19 May).

The LMR4 module is available now with standard lead times, and sample evaluation kits are available.
