Cree, Inc. of Durham, North Carolina USA, has expanded its OSQ Series of area and flood LED luminaires with the addition of the High Output (HO) portfolio. According to Cree, the New HO versions of the OSQ Series provide better performance, expand its range of applications, and delivers dramatic savings.
Cree notes that with output ranging from 40,000 to 65,000 lumens, the new luminaire more than doubles the maximum lumen output of the original OSQ Series, and it can replace multiple metal halide (MH) 1000W fixtures. The fixtures consume just 341W to 550W. Furthermore, Cree asserts that using one OSQ-HO luminaire can result in a reduction in energy consumption of more than 80 percent compared to multiple 1000W metal halide fixtures.
The higher lumen output and the new optics enable higher mounting heights, including high mast and large parking lots, and the HO has special packages for outdoor automotive dealership frontlines.
“Cree is continuously improving LED lighting solutions by delivering more value to more applications that surpass customer expectations,” said David Elien, Cree senior vice president, lighting. “Compared to other LED area lighting options, the OSQ™ luminaire is smaller and lighter, making it easier to install while delivering increased energy savings at exceptional performance levels.”
High Efficiency and Extreme Reliability Lower Cost of Ownership
The HO range of the OSQ Series employs the company’s advances in optical control and thermal management.
The HO range comes with minimum CRIs up to 90 and efficacy of up to 125 lumens per watt (LPW). The high efficiency helps dramatically lower the cost of ownership.
Also, the high reliability of the fixtures allows Cree to offer its 10-year limited warranty. The sleek design with a small size and reduced weight reportedly minimize wind load requirements. The fixtures have a receptacle that allows the installation of NEMA photocell for detecting sunlight levels.
The 90 CRI versions that support true-to-life colors that are perfect for automotive frontline (AF) applications. Cree says that they also feature optical distributions that are optimized to highlight vehicles on display. Other distribution options suit large parking lots and high-mast applications.
The company further contends that the new products offer excellent performance across all optics and lumen configurations.
