Cree launches first 8000lm LED module, enabling replacement of 150W CMH lamps

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched what it claims is the first 8000 lumen LED module.

The 8000 lumen LMH2 LED module is designed to replace 150-watt ceramic metal halide (CMH) lamps in high-ceiling applications while using only 63% the power and lasting three times as long. Cree claims that its LMH2 LED module family now offers the industry’s greatest range of lumen output from a single form factor, making it possible to obsolete CMH technology.

“The new Cree 8000 lumen LMH2 module allows us to effectively address high-ceiling, high- lumen applications without having to sacrifice color quality or reliability,” comments Wesley Johnson, product manager of lighting firm Hi-Lite Manufacturing Company of Chino, CA, USA. “We can now easily offer our customers better lighting solutions to replace 150-watt ceramic metal halide lamps in spaces such as convention centers, airports, auditoriums and shopping malls,” he adds.

The LMH2 LED Module family provides an extensive range of light output (850-8000lm) from a single light source, enabling lighting manufacturers to quickly develop an entire product portfolio with just one set of tooling and optical design, says Cree. Lighting designers can now use one light source and technology to illuminate an entire space, and avoid problems such as color inconsistency and re-lamping, it adds.

“Having an 8000 lumen option in the LMH2 LED module family gives us the flexibility to create an entire product family from a single form factor,” comments Chris Roemlein, president of Spectrum Lighting Inc of Fall River, MA, USA. "Cree's ability to increase the performance of the LMH2 module allows us to address a wide range of ceiling heights with minimal design investment.”

Cree is exhibiting the LMH2 LED module family in Hall 5.0, Stand C34 at the Light+Building 2014 trade fair in Frankfurt, Germany (30 March – 4 April). Samples and production quantities are available with standard lead times from distributors. Cree also offers a complete ecosystem of LED accessories to help lighting manufacturers speed time to market.
