Cree launches LMH2 module with sunset dimming

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced the LMH2 LED module with sunset dimming, enabling a natural dimming profile - similar to incandescent lighting - that was previously unachievable with any other energy-saving technology, it is claimed.

Cree’s sunset dimming technology dims smoothly from 2700K to 1800K, delivering rich, warm light for applications requiring a traditional style of dimming such as hospitality and residential settings, while still achieving energy reduction of more than 80% compared to incandescents.

The robust LMH2 module family now lets lighting manufacturers address a wide range of lighting technologies with one module form factor, says Cree. The module leverages one product platform to create an entire luminaire portfolio - delivering the investment protection necessary to quickly and cost-effectively address most lighting applications, the firm claims.

“We recently launched a new product line based on the 4000 lumen LMH2 LED module,” notes Kenny Eidsvold, president, Intense Lighting Inc. “Now, with the introduction of Cree's sunset dimming option, we can further expand our product line to offer quality LED lighting solutions for hospitality, restaurant and residential applications.”

Available in a range of lumens (850 to 3000) at 2700K and multiple driver options, LMH2 modules with sunset dimming technology can plug-in seamlessly to existing LMH2 module drivers and reflectors, and are also compatible with TRIAC dimmers, so it can be easily retrofitted in any room with traditional dimming technologies or used in new installations with 0-10V or Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) dimming technologies, says Cree.

“The LMH2 module with sunset dimming opens up new markets for us and allows us to address applications that traditionally use incandescent and halogen light sources,” comments Fred Farzan, president of Nora Lighting.

“The LMH2 LED module delivers rich, warm light while maintaining high CRI [color rendering index] to provide the look and feel of a traditional incandescent lamp,” adds Mike Wang, vice president, lighting engineering, Edison Price Lighting.

Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to 5%, the LMH2 module comes with Cree’s five-year warranty. Samples are available now. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals, says Cree.
