Cree expands LED downlight portfolio

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched new KR8 and LR6 LED downlights, designed to deliver better lighting performance and better value for new and existing commercial spaces.

The new KR8 downlight expands the KR Series by adding the firm's first 8-inch downlight, and features Cree WaveMax Technology and TrueWhite Technology. This combination brings optical efficiency, precise beam control and long product life to higher ceiling applications, such as theaters, airports and auditoriums. The newest generation of Cree's LR6 downlight provides better light quality at a lower price.

With the new KR8 downlight, Cree's architectural downlight portfolio now addresses ceiling heights from 8 feet up to 40 feet. Additionally, the KR8 downlight covers most commercial and retail applications with 6000 and 8000 lumen outputs, achieving what other high-lumen output LED downlights have not been able to deliver, it is claimed, with more light, a range of beam spreads and unrivaled optical control. The specification-grade downlight integrates Cree's WaveMax Technology and uses a unique dual optic design that enables high precision with beam angles as tight as 15°, providing light uniformity and better color performance with a 90-plus CRI (color rendering index).

The new KR8 downlight provides double the lifetime of its nearest competitors, and delivers dimming capabilities down to 1% for lower energy bills and payback of less than two years. Designed with contractors and electricians in mind, the KR8 downlight features easy two-step installation, and is offered in warm, neutral and cool color temperatures. It is sold through Cree lighting sales channels throughout the USA and Canada, and is backed by a 10-year limited warranty.

The new Cree LR6 downlight delivers up to 1800lm of light at a minimum CRI of 90. With luminous efficacy of up to 100lm/W, it uses up to 89% less energy than the incandescent downlight it replaces and up to 58% less than a CFL (compact fluorescent lamp). This performance is achieved by combining Cree's TrueWhite Technology with an integrated driver and thermal management design.

LR6 downlights features Cree's patented Flip-Clip technology, securing easily into all 6-inch IC and non-IC housings without the need for professional installers. The LR Series can also be used in new construction for recessed or pendant lighting applications, and is available in warm or neutral color temperatures, with three lumen packages and a variety of trim options. Like the previous-generation product, the new LR6 downlight is covered by a 10-year limited warranty (typically double the warranty of the nearest competitor solutions, it is reckoned).
