Cree’s adds KR4 LED downlight, with higher lumen output, 4" aperture and expanded options

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has extended its KR Series LED downlight portfolio, delivering improved performance at pricing to match incumbent fluorescent downlights. With new lumen packages of up to 2650 delivered lumens, the KR Series replaces 18-42W fluorescents.

Cree is further expanding the range of LED downlight applications by introducing the KR4 downlight, which features a high-lumen, 4-inch aperture, with options similar to the 6-inch KR6 downlight. With new standard 0V to 10V dimming, sloped-ceiling and wall-wash trim options, the KR Series downlights provide aesthetic appeal for numerous commercial and retail applications, the firm reckons.

“The KR Series LED downlights are ideal for new construction applications,” says Greg Merritt, vice president, Lighting. “With the increased range of LED options now available at price parity to fluorescent-lighting incumbents, I see no reason to ever specify a CFL [compact fluorescent lamp] downlight.”

Built with Cree TrueWhite Technology, the KR Series downlight family is available in a wide range of color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K and a new 4000K), all with 90+ color rendering index (CRI). To help facilitate utility rebates, the KR Series is currently in the process of ENERGY STAR qualification.
