Cree boosts Edge High-Output LED luminaires with TrueWhite Technology for outdoor lighting

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA says that it has extended its Cree Edge High-Output (HO) LED luminaire series with TrueWhite Technology to bring 90-CRI (color rendering index) quality and performance to outdoor lighting applications, delivering what is claimed to be unprecedented high-output 5000K illumination.

Designed for automotive dealership front lines, exterior retail applications and other high-lumen applications requiring high color quality, the Edge HO TrueWhite luminaire showcases inventory in vivid light while saving on energy and maintenance costs compared to the metal-halide fixtures it replaces, says the firm.

Cree says that, using its Automotive FrontlineOptic technology, the Edge HO TrueWhite luminaire precisely delivers light on the front row of a car dealership’s inventory, improving the appearance of the property’s highest-profile area and enabling auto dealers to use one Edge luminaire to replace up to four metal halide fixtures typically needed on each pole to properly illuminate the front line. Compared to metal halide fixtures that can lose up to 40% of their initial light output after just one year of operation, the Edge HO TrueWhite luminaire delivers both consistent light output and superior color quality while using 70% less energy, claims Cree. The new luminaire is covered by Cree’s 10-year limited warranty.

“Cree engineered the Cree Edge HO TrueWhite luminaire to provide a no-compromise, high-output luminaire that offers enhanced color quality, improved illumination performance and greater reliability with a decade of virtually maintenance-free operation,” says Greg Merritt, Cree VP, marketing, lighting.
