Cree launches 23,000 lumen high-bay LED luminaire to replace 400W metal halides

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has introduced the CXB High Bay LED luminaire, claimed to be the first LED fixture designed to compete directly with the 67 million traditional high-bay luminaires currently installed in North America.

Paying for itself in less than three years (calculated against 400W metal halide and based on commercial usage of 12 hours per-day and the national average of $0.11 per kWh electric costs), the CXB High Bay LED luminaire delivers 23,000 lumens and provides a combination of high performance and affordability, says Cree, eliminating the need for energy-wasting fluorescent and HID high bay luminaires. Suitable as a replacement for warehouse, industrial, education and other commercial high bay applications, it cuts energy consumption in half and nearly eliminates maintenance costs with what Cree claims is industry-leading price performance.

The CXB High Bay LED luminaire’s design enables a low-profile luminaire at half the weight of incumbent technologies, it is reckoned. Offering versatile mounting options for one-for-one replacement of up to 400-watt high-intensity discharge (HID) fixtures and multi-lamp fluorescent high bay luminaires, the new luminaire simplifies installation and reduces labor costs during its 70,000-hour rated lifetime. The CXB High Bay LED luminaire is backed by Cree’s 10-year limited warranty.
