The compact, two-piece module provides manufacturers with greater flexibilty for rapid LED luminaire design and development. The LMH2 incorporates Cree TrueWhite LED technology for efficacy and CRI, featuring primary optics for colour uniformity. The device also features primary thermal management – potentially eliminating the need for costly secondary thermal management systems. Optimised for more than downlights and spots, the LMH2 has been designed for a broad range of lighting applications, including wall sconces, pendant lights, ceiling fans and many other common luminaires in commercial, retail, museums, residential, hospitality and restaurant environments.
“The LMH2 is designed with the needs of the 230-volt European and Asian lighting markets in mind,” said Mike Watson, Cree senior director marketing, LED components. “One of the major barriers to LED lighting adoption and design remains upfront cost. The new Cree LMH2 modules can reduce initial luminaire cost and accelerate time-to-market for OEMs.”
The LMH2 is available with 90 CRI at 850 and 1250 lumens and in colour temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K. Designed for 50,000 hours of operation and dimmable to five percent, the LMH2 comes with Cree’s new industry-leading five-year warranty. The LMH2 is also UL-recognized and complies with multiple international regulatory and safety standards. Luminaire makers seeking ENERGY STAR qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals.
