03/02/2016Cree Shows LED Power with Higher-Ranking Quality of the Color

Up-to-dated Technique Helps To Reduce Charges for Lighting Output with Incandescent-Like Color Quality

Cree enrolls a new LED industry with the presentation of a singular high-powered LED that delivers almost 1600 lumens at 134 lumens-per-watt (LPW) with incandescent-like color quality. According to these results the company has brought a huge innovation to the LED market: Cree reached for 25 percent rise in LPW over release LEDs of identical color quality beneath the conditions in real-world lighting applications. 

This breakthrough is very notable. Combined with the latest SC5 Technology™ it will lead to effective performance, reduced prices and more reliable light.
Company`s co-founder John Edmond says that at the moment improved LED technologies go beyond just multiplying lumens-per-watt. The team also concentrates their attention on elevating spectral content and warmer color temperature`s efficiency. Such R&D result enables to continue LED technology innovation of the company and give an opportunity of high power lighting at the lowest costs.

Cree`s last one founding illustrates us a straight-out solution of high quality lighting at the lowest cost.
What could this technology achieve? For example, a 60W LED  lamp with light quality (3000K CCT & 80 CRI) on the average can be elevated to incandescent light quality (2700K CCT, 90+ CRI & 90+ R9) with the similar light output and ranks of power consumption.
California Title 20 efficiency LED standard, that was recently approved, shows the significance of this achievement without cost and energy savings agreements.
Measurements with the R&D LED performance were made at 1587 lumens at 350 mA and junction temperature of 85°C, delivering 134 LPW with a CRI Ra > 90 and R9 > 90 at 2700 K CCT, as Cree reports.
