“The Cree KR Series truly goes head-to-head with the initial cost of fluorescent downlights,” said Christopher Ruud, vice president global sales, Cree lighting.
Designed for new construction, the new cost-effective six-inch downlight features line voltage dimming to five percent, as well as multiple colour point, light output and specification-grade reflector options. The KR Series features Cree TrueWhite Technology – a new way to generate white light with LEDs. The technology delivers high efficiency with strong light characteristics, while maintaining colour consistency over the rated lifetime of the product.
The new downlight is available in 2700K, 3000K and 3500K colour temperatures, all with 90 CRI to enable beautiful, efficient, colour effective light. Designed to last 50,000 hours, the KR Series features a five-year warranty.
The KR Series LED Downlight will be sold through Cree lighting sales channels with sample quantities targeted for availability in May 2012.
