Light-emitting diode (LED) maker Cree Inc. introduced what it claims is the industry’s highest-performing LED module, offering 30 percent better performance than its predecessor.
The product, known as the LMH2+, is said to provide efficacy of 125 lumens per watt with color-quality greater than 90 on the color rendering index (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, according to Cree (Durham, N.C.).
The LMH2+ is a drop-in upgrade for designs based on its predecessor, the LMH2, Cree says. The LED allows lighting manufacturers to address more challenging installations such as those with space constraints or higher ambient temperatures, Cree says.
