Cree demonstrates prototype LR6 LED Downlight
By Energy Management
DURHAM, N.C. — Cree
is demonstrating a prototype version of the LR6 LED recessed
downlight that consumes just 6.5 W of electricity, resulting in 665 lumens,
an efficacy of 102 lumens per watt and a power factor greater than 0.9.
Shown at LIGHTFAIR International in New York, the high-efficiency LR6
prototype features TrueWhite technology, resulting in a 92 color rendering
index and a 3500 K color temperature.
"By using the latest Cree LEDs, the Xlamp XP-G, we were able to achieve this great efficiency," said Gerry Negley, chief technologist for Cree LED Lighting. "We continue to push the envelope with LED technology-because consumers deserve high-quality light without toxic mercury or wasted energy."
