The Cree LR6-DR1000 recessed downlight was awarded the Grand Prize at the 2009 Lighting for Tomorrow - Solid State Lighting Competition. A repeat winner, Cree shared the prize with Philip's Color Kinetics for its eW Cove Powercore. The Cree LRP-38, a PAR38 bulb, and the LR6-HE (high-efficiency) were also recognized with Special Focus Awards for technical innovation and high efficiency, respectively.
The LR6-DR1000 is a high-output six-inch downlight that produces more than 1000 lumens of light output. Targeted for commercial release early next year, the LR6-DR1000 is designed to operate off an input power of less than 13 Watts, delivering an efficacy in excess of 77 lumens per Watt. Purportedly, this makes it the most efficient, specification-grade LED downlight.
