Cree, Inc. announces commercial availability of the 750-lumen LMR2 LED Module—delivering lighting manufacturers an integrated platform to help speed time to market and lower initial cost for LED lighting in residential markets. The breakthrough LMR2 LED module combines light source, driver, optics and primary thermal management in a single, compact system, simplifying retrofit and new installation.
The new LMR2 LED module shares the same form factor of the commercial LMR2 yet 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. The LMR2 LED module series also shares the same optical and mechanical interface as Cree’s LMH2 LED modules, further enabling lighting manufacturers to leverage existing luminaire designs to help speed product development and shorten time to market.
“We are excited that Cree is extending the LMR2 family of LED modules,” said Fred Farzan, president of Nora Lighting. “We worked closely with Cree to design a cost-effective system, while still maintaining the high product quality Nora is known for. 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 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K. Cree EasyWhite technology allows lighting manufacturers to deliver consistent lumen output across all available color temperatures while maintaining a tight color consistency. Designed for 35,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent and compatible with most standard dimmers, the LMR2 comes with Cree’s industry-leading three-year warranty. The 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.
