Cree, Inc. introduces a new four-inch CR4T LED downlight and a higher lumen output six-inch downlight.

Cree, Inc. introduces a new four-inch CR4T LED downlight and a higher lumen output six-inch downlight. Relentless innovation has enabled Cree to attack cost barriers to LED adoption, while exceeding the industry's highest standards for performance, color quality and ease of use. The new six-inch CR6T downlight uses 87 percent less energy than comparable incandescent lighting and delivers payback in less than one year in many commercial installations.

Both new products are powered by Cree TrueWhite® Technology to deliver exceptional 90+ CRI. Cree TrueWhite Technology delivers beautiful light and maintains color consistency over the rated lifetime of the product, all while maintaining high luminous efficacy - a true no compromise solution. The new downlights easily install into most standard four-inch and six-inch recessed housings - making the Cree® CR Series LED downlights ideal for use in both residential and light commercial, new construction or retrofit, applications.

The CR4 LED downlight delivers 575 lumens and more than 60 lumens per watt and is a direct replacement for a 50 Watt 4-inch incandescent downlight. The new CR6 LED downlight delivers up to 800 lumens and up to 67 lumens per watt and is a direct replacement for a 90 Watt 6-inch incandescent downlight. The CR Series is dimmable to five percent, is designed to last 50,000 hours and features a five-year warranty.

The new CR Series is qualified for both residential and commercial ENERGY STAR® standards. This higher standard of performance opens up opportunities for more incentives and rebates available from utilities and other entities - further lowering price and barriers to mass LED adoption.

The CR6-800L can replace up to 90 Watts incandescent lights and uses only 12 Watts of input power. With typical commercial usage of 12 hours per day and the national average $0.11 per kWh electric costs, lighting-related HVAC impact and relamp maintenance reductions, many upgrade installations will pay for themselves in less than one year.
