LED modules deliver up to 3000 lumens

April 04, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
LED manufacturer Cree extends its high-performance LMH2 module family with new 2000 and 3000 lumen output options. The new modules offer better performance, longer lifetime and lower system cost than comparable compact fluorescent lamps. The LMH2 module family now enables a wider range of lighting applications within a compact, cost-effective design, the company promises.

The LMH2 LED module combines an efficacy of 82 lumens per watt system with a CRI greater than 90 in all available color temperatures. The LMH2 LED features Cree TrueWhite technology. According to Cree, this technology delivers high efficiency with beautiful light characteristics, while maintaining color consistency over the rated lifetime of the product. The LMH2 module family is available in a range of lumen, color temperature and driver options; with its two-piece design it aims the commercial lighting market. 

The LMH2 module separates the light source and power supply to enable a wide selection of mounting and wiring options – giving lighting manufacturers the flexibility needed for rapid LED luminaire design and development. LMH2 modules also feature primary thermal management – potentially eliminating the need for costly secondary thermal management systems.

LMH2 modules are available in color temperatures of 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and 4000 K. The module is available with Digital Addressable Lighting Interface (DALI) and DALI touch dimming. Operating lifetime is specified for 50,000 hours. Luminaire makers seeking Energy Star qualification will have access to specification and performance data, including LM-80 reports, which can speed regulatory approvals. Samples are available now and production quantities are available with standard lead times from Cree distributors. 

At the upcoming Light+Building, Cree plans to showcase LMH2 modules in different applications. At the fair, Cree can be found in Hall 4.2, Stand G71.
