Cree announced its new 1000 lm LMR4 LED module, providing 66 lm/Watt efficiency in a fully integrated solution for downlight applications where high-quality light is essential such as commercial, retail and residential. Featuring proprietary TrueWhite Technology, the LMR4-1000 module provides high quality light and efficiency, using 42 percent less input power, than 26-W compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, according to the company. The LMR4-1000 is asserted to be the only commercially available 2700 K LED module to deliver 1000 lumen output at more than 90 CRI, which can replace 100 watt incandescent bulbs in downlight applications. This LED Module integrates driver electronics, optics and primary thermal management, making the compact Cree module drop-in-ready. Designed to last 35,000 hours and dimmable to 5 percent, the module is available in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K with more than 90 CRI.
