Cree introduces 750-lumen integrated LED module for residential downlighting

LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has announced the commercial availability of its 750-lumen LMR2 LED module, which combines light source, driver, optics and primary thermal management in a single, compact system.

The new LMR2 LED module is optimized for the performance, dimming and cost requirements of the residential market, providing manufacturers the investment protection of a single platform for all applications, says the firm. The LMR2 LED module series shares the same optical and mechanical interface as Cree’s LMH2 LED modules, which enables lighting manufacturers to leverage existing luminaire designs to help speed product development.

“We worked closely with Cree to design a cost-effective system, while still maintaining the high product quality Nora is known for,” says Fred Farzan, president of Nora Lighting. “With the new Cree LMR2 LED module, we are able to deliver higher lumen output and efficacy in a single-unit design that more easily integrates into existing single-piece incandescent downlight design. With the help of Cree's technology, Nora is able to meet market demands and keep our customers competitive with the highest quality products.”

Featuring Cree EasyWhite technology, the LMR2 delivers 750 lumens at 72 lumens-per-watt, 80-CRI and is available in color temperatures of 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K. Designed for 35,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent and compatible with most standard dimmers, the LMR2 comes with Cree’s three-year warranty. LMR2 is UL-recognized, and luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR and California Code of Regulations Title 24 qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.
