Durham, N.C. — Cree, Inc. extends its LMH2 LED module family with the introduction of the LMH2+, touted as the industry’s highest performing LED module. The device delivers 30 percent better performance than the previous generation in the same form factor, providing efficacy of 125 lumens per watt with color-quality greater than 90 CRI. “The LMH2+ is the only LED module that allows lighting manufacturers to achieve a system efficacy of 100 lumens-per-watt with high light quality,” said Cree.
Featuring elements of Cree’s innovative SC5 Technology Platform, the efficacy of the LMH2+ is expected to drive new applications, enable smaller luminaires and lower system cost, the company said. In addition, the LMH2+ is expected to help lighting manufacturers address more challenging installations such as those with space constraints or higher ambient temperatures.
The LMH2+ is a drop-in upgrade for LMH2-based designs. Lighting manufacturers can also leverage existing ecosystems, tooling and optic design elements to accelerate time to market and lower design cost, said Cree. In addition, UL rating will be available for maximum and nominal currents to provide more driver options and design flexibility.
Like all LMH2 modules, the LMH2+ delivers the same efficacy across all color temperatures. The LMH2+ LED Module is available at 1250, 2000 and 3000 lumens and in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K at 90+ CRI. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent, the LMH2+ is backed by Cree’s five-year warranty.
Specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, will be available for ENERGY STAR qualification.
Availability: Samples and production quantities are available with standard lead times from Cree distributors.
