Driving the Adoption of LED Lighting with Higher Lumen Outputs, New Aperture and Expanded Options

DURHAM, NC --

Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) extends the KR Series LED downlight portfolio, delivering greatly improved performance at pricing to match incumbent fluorescent downlights. With new lumen packages of up to 2650 delivered lumens, the KR Series replaces 18- to 42-watt fluorescents.

Cree is further expanding the range of LED downlight applications by introducing the KR4™ downlight, which features an impressive, high-lumen, 4-inch aperture, with options similar to the 6-inch KR6™ downlight. With new standard 0- to 10-V dimming, sloped-ceiling and wall-wash trim options, the KR Series downlights provide aesthetic appeal for numerous commercial and retail applications. 

"The KR Series LED downlights are ideal for new construction applications," said Greg Merritt, vice president, Lighting. "And with the increased range of LED options now available at price parity to fluorescent-lighting incumbents, I see no reason to ever specify a CFL downlight."

Built with Cree TrueWhite® Technology, the KR Series downlight family is available in a wide range of color temperatures (2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K and a new 4000 K), all with industry-leading 90+ CRI, enabling beautiful, efficient lighting. To help facilitate utility rebates, the KR Series is currently in the qualification process for earning the ENERGY STAR®. 

The KR Series is sold through Cree Lighting sales channels. Please visit www.cree.com/KRSeries to learn more about the KR Series LED downlights.
