Cree Expands CR Series LED Downlights, Delivering Greater Application Coverage and a Lower Initial Price

Building upon the success of the CR Series downlights, Cree, Inc. introduces Cree  Full Definition CR4™ and CR6™ downlights – the ideal luminaire to replace outdated incandescent four- and six-inch recessed downlights. Featuring a warm-white 2700K color temperature, dimming and better than 80 CRI, the Full Definition downlights are ideal for applications that require good light quality and low initial cost.

"Cree is committed to delivering customers the LED lighting solution needed to fit their budgets and applications," said Greg Merritt, vice president, lighting at Cree. "The new Full Definition CR downlights cost less than fluorescent alternatives and also use 20–30 percent less energy compared to the outdated CFLs they replace. With the low initial investment and good light quality, customers should never need to install an outdated fluorescent or incandescent downlight again."

The breakthrough innovation combines Cree’s latest advancements in LEDs and driver design with full-system thermal and electrical integration to virtually eliminate initial cost barriers to LED adoption. The new CR Full Definition luminaires can deliver payback against incandescent downlights in less than one year in many installations and are offered at a price-point that is up to 25 percent less than Cree’s comparable 90-CRI products.

For customers who require a higher CRI, Cree is also expanding the existing CR Series LED downlights to include new color-temperature and light-quality options. The CR Series now offers 3000-K, 3500-K and 4000-K color temperatures, in addition to the existing 2700-K offer – all featuring a CRI of 90 or more.

The Cree CR4 Full Definition downlight delivers up to 575 lumens and the CR6 Full Definition downlight delivers up to 625 lumens. Both models feature 2700-K color temperature and are dimmable to five percent with most standard incandescent dimmers. The Full Definition downlights are qualified for both residential and commercial ENERGY STAR® standards. This higher standard of performance opens up opportunities for more incentives and rebates available from utilities and other entities – further lowering price and barriers to mass LED adoption.
