Cree launches 4000 lumen LMH2 LED module to replace 70W ceramic metal halide lamps

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the 4000 lumen LMH2, which is claimed to be industry’s highest-performance LED module, producing the same or better-quality light as 70-watt ceramic metal halide (CMH) lamps while consuming half the power and lasting three times longer.

Cree says that the LMH2 LED module lets lighting manufacturers quickly and easily add LED options to their existing lighting portfolio – addressing different applications with lumen levels ranging from 650 to 4000 lumens with just one set of tooling and one optical design.

The new module family delivers system efficacy of up to 108 lumens-per-watt with a color rendering index (CRI) of more than 90 in all available color temperatures. The LMH2 module family enables manufacturers to leverage one product platform to create an entire product portfolio, delivering the investment protection necessary to quickly and cost-effectively address more lighting applications, says Cree.

“They provide LED lighting solutions with low design risk,” comments Mike Wang, VP, lighting engineering, at Edison Price Lighting. “The LMH2 LED module delivers all the best features of lighting technology - light output, efficacy, quality of light and long lifetime - in a stable format.”

The LMH2 module family is available in a range of lumen (850, 1250, 2000, 3000 and 4000), color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K) and driver options, including Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) and DALI touch dimming driver options. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to 5%, the LMH2 module comes with Cree’s five-year warranty. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.

Samples and production quantities are available with standard lead times from Cree distributors.
