Cree expands ZR Series LED troffer portfolio

LED chip, lamp and lighting maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has expanded its ZR Series LED troffer portfolio by launching the ZR FD LED Series, a commercial spec-grade troffer that delivers luminous efficacy of 130 lumens per watt, providing up to 60% energy savings versus fluorescent troffers, it is reckoned. There is hence now a choice: the ZR Series for a color rendering index (CRI) of 90-plus at an industry-competitive 90 lumens per watt or the new ZR FD Series for 130 lumens per watt efficacy at 80-plus CRI.

The ZR FD Series typically provides a payback of less than 2 years versus fluorescent lighting and comes standard with dimming to 5% (versus the 10% typical of fluorescent). The ZR FD Series features a new matte reflector finish for improved product aesthetics, reduced glare and uniform illumination. The ZR FD Series is suitable for both new construction and renovation applications demanding extreme reliability and long product lifetime. Backed by a 10-year warranty, the product offers a 75,000-hour lifetime at 35°C.

Its thin profile, lightweight design makes for easy installation in almost any plenum, claims Cree, reducing the need for layout re-design in retrofit applications. The 3.9" height offers a quick and easy one-for-one replacement of fluorescent troffers in education, healthcare and commercial building applications, it adds. 

The full family of ZR FD Series products is available in 2'x4', 2'x2' and 1'x4' sizes and packages of 3300 and 4000 lumens at color temperatures of 3500K or 4000K at 80-plus CRI. An emergency backup option is also available. Additionally, future SmartCast Technology-enabled options are planned, which will amplify energy savings and provide a more personalized light experience without the added complexity of traditional controls. The series is compliant with CA Title 24 dimming codes and most nationwide energy codes.

The ZR FD Series is available now and sold through Cree lighting sales channels throughout the USA.
