Cree Introduces Industry’s First LED Module Designed to Replace Ceramic Metal Halide Lighting
The new barrier-breaking LMH2 module is also now available with a 120-277V universal driver with 0/1-10 volt dimming capability. The extremely versatile and modular LMH2 LED offers a range of lumen, color temperature, driver and beam shape options in one common form factor – enabling lighting manufacturers to quickly customize their applications and speed time-to-market.
“The new LMH2 delivers the perfect combination of high efficacy, color quality and controls,” said Anthony Toniolo, president, DDP & Emerge Lighting. “The Cree LED module provides Data Display the design and manufacturing flexibility needed to accelerate our time-to-market.”
Optimized with the new hemispheric beam shape of the dome lens, the drop-in ready LMH2 delivers up to 80 lumens-per-watt system efficacy combined with 90+ CRI. Featuring Cree TrueWhite® Technology, the new LMH2 module is available in 2000 and 3000 lumens and delivers more than 95 lumens per watt at the light source. The module is available in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent, the LMH2 comes with Cree’s industry-leading warranty. The LMH2 light source is also UL-recognized and complies with multiple international regulatory and safety standards. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR® qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.
“Lighting manufacturers no longer need to settle for inferior quality and performance offered with ceramic metal halide lighting,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior director marketing, LED components. “Cree’s LMH2 family lets designers quickly and easily convert their traditional lighting portfolio to LEDs and simultaneously deliver their end-users improved color quality, efficacy and performance.”
