Cree introduces next-generation LED Canopy lighting series

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced its CPY250 canopy and soffit lighting series. Consuming 75% less energy than the MH (metal halide) systems it’s designed to replace and 5–15% less energy with more than 35% increased performance compared to competing higher-cost LED luminaires, the new CPY Series delivers exceptional visual environments across a range of canopy applications, including gas stations, bank drive-through ATMs and hotel/airport drop-off centers, says the firm.

“Canopy operators are under constant pressure to lower operating costs while simultaneously providing safe and visually appealing lighting,” says Greg Merritt, vice president, lighting at Cree. “The new CPY Series, with its slim, low-profile design, is the perfect upgrade solution. The high-performance LED luminaires not only outperform existing LED and MH solutions but also enable the lowest total cost of ownership objectives to be achieved.”

A canopy installation with Cree CPY250 luminaires can deliver a payback period of less than two years, compared with MH recessed and surface-mount solutions (based on typical commercial usage of 12 hours per day and the national average $0.12 per kWh electric costs and virtually zero maintenance).

Available in both flat and prismatic drop lens, the CPY250 provides two illumination aesthetics to meet the visual, as well as the vertical and horizontal illumination, performance needs of a typical canopy application. The CPY250 can seamlessly mount to virtually any canopy deck and is secured in place with self-sealing screws that provide a reliable water-tight seal. The integrated driver within the canopy housing further simplifies installation. The new canopy series also features Cree’s 10-year limited warranty.
