The first product in the new line is the Cree LED Module LMR4, which according to the company, is created to overcome common design issues manufacturers have faced when trying to incorporate LED products into their lighting fixtures.

The Cree LED Module LMR4 integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management, making the compact Cree module drop-in-ready. Designed to last 35,000 hours while consuming 12W of power, it delivers 700 lumens at a warm-white color temperature of 2700 with a CRI >90, the company said.

Fixture manufacturers have the option to include a specially designed heat sink to accommodate specific high-heat applications, like downlights for insulated ceilings.

The LMR4 (120V) is UL recognized and the LMR4 (230V) complies with multiple international standards, added the company. Fixture makers seeking Energy Star qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.

Chuck Swoboda, chairman and CEO of Cree, said: ”Cree customers now have access to our industry-proven TrueWhite technology, allowing them to quickly deliver better products to the market, faster.

”Cree TrueWhite technology is already installed in thousands of locations including restaurants, retail stores, and others that demand both high-quality light and energy-efficiency.”
