Cree launches next generation of RSW LED street-light portfolio
LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the next generation of its RSW LED street-light portfolio with the introduction of 2700K, 5000K and 70 color rendering index (CRI) configurations, giving cities and municipalities the ability to meet the full range of lighting preferences for their communities without sacrificing energy savings, it is claimed.
The enhanced series includes RSW Small and Medium models that offer warm light for residential streets and clean, white illumination for roadways. Both deliver improved performance for superior efficacy with uniform and dark-sky friendly LED lighting, the firm adds.
“Cree’s RSW Series enables municipalities to save time, energy and resources with LED street lighting without sacrificing the comfort of residents,” says David Elien, Cree senior VP & general manager, lighting. “The additional offerings ensure that community officials can address the unique requirements of each roadway application while using less energy and providing enhanced visual comfort without the glare of street lights spilling into neighborhood properties at night.”
The expanded series delivers luminous efficacy of up to 128 lumens per Watt (LPW), outperforming high-pressure sodium (HPS) solutions with up to 70% more energy savings and replacing HPS fixtures ranging up to 150W.
Utilizing Cree’s WaveMax Technology, the RSW Series delivers improved color quality and efficacy while providing enhanced visual comfort with reduced glare and high color contrast, claims the firm. The RSW Series is also smart-city ready, enabled by a standard NEMA 7-pin.
The RSW Series is backed by Cree’s 10-year warranty and is available through Cree lighting sales channels throughout the USA and Canada.
