LMH2 LED Module Family Enables the Complete Replacement of Ceramic Metal Halide Lamps
DURHAM, N.C. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 27, 2014 — Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) introduces the new 8000 lumen LMH2 LED Module, a no-compromise, easy-to-use solution for high-ceiling applications. The 8000 lumen LMH2 is designed to replace 150-watt ceramic metal halide (CMH) lamps while using only 63 percent the power and lasting three times as long. With the addition of the 8000 lumen LMH2, the Cree® LMH2 LED Module family offers the industry’s greatest range of lumen output from a single form factor, making it possible to obsolete CMH technology.
"The new Cree® 8000 lumen LMH2 Module allows us to effectively address high-ceiling, high- lumen applications without having to sacrifice color quality or reliability," said Wesley Johnson, product manager, Hi-Lite Mfg. "We can now easily offer our customers better lighting solutions to replace 150-watt ceramic metal halide lamps in spaces such as convention centers, airports, auditoriums and shopping malls."
Cree’s LMH2 LED Module family provides an extensive range of light output (850 to 8000 lumens) from a single light source, enabling lighting manufacturers to quickly develop an entire product portfolio with just one set of tooling and optical design. Lighting designers can now utilize one light source and technology to illuminate an entire space, and avoid problems such as color inconsistency and re-lamping.
“Having an 8000 lumen option in the LMH2 LED Module family gives us the flexibility to create an entire product family from a single form factor,” said Chris Roemlein, president, Spectrum Lighting. “Cree’s ability to increase the performance of the LMH2 Module allows us to address a wide range of ceiling heights with minimal design investment.”
