Cree of Durham, North Carolina USA, added the new LXB Series Linear High-Bay luminaires to its industrial lighting portfolio. The company released the new LXB Series fixtures to meet the need resulting from the nearly half of all new construction and fluorescent retrofit high-bay installations that specify linear high-bay LED fixtures.
Cree says it enhanced the efficacy, improved the reliability, and extended the lifetime of the LXB Series compared to the company’s other linear high-bays. The company also designed the fixtures for high ceilings, high ambient temperatures, and high-profile spaces.
LXB Series Adds to Cree’s Industrial Lighting Portfolio
“The LXB Series significantly extends Cree’s reach into the industrial new construction and retrofit market,” said Craig Atwater, Cree senior vice president and general manager, lighting. “The new linear high-bay’s exceptional thermal management enables operating temperatures as high as 55°C and offers more than 65 percent in energy savings when compared to traditional technologies like high-intensity discharge (HID) and fluorescents.”
The high bays provide up to 160 lumens per watt (LPW) and are eligible for DLC® Premium certification. Cree claims that the Series offers payback as soon as 1.5 years and it qualifies for maximum rebates.
According to Cree, installers can use existing wiring and mounting hardware to replace linear fluorescent and HID high-bay fixtures quickly and easily at mounting heights of up to and greater than 50 feet. Furthermore, the LXB Series offers a broad range of outputs from 12,000 to 60,000 lumens in 4000K or 5000K correlated color temperatures (CCTs)
Cree is selling the LXB Series through the Cree lighting sales channels in the United States and Canada.
