DURHAM, N.C. — Cree, Inc. (Nasdaq: CREE) extends its industry-leading OSQ Series of area and flood LED luminaires, delivering better performance, expanding applications and offering dramatic savings with the new Cree® OSQ High Output (HO) portfolio. The new luminaire more than doubles the top lumen output of the original OSQ Series with up to 65,000 lumens and can replace multiple metal halide (MH) 1000W fixtures. The result is more than 80 percent energy savings using one OSQ-HO luminaire. The new product extends the application range for open area and flood luminaires to projects with high mounting heights, including high mast and large parking lots, and has special packages for outdoor automotive 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.”
Utilizing Cree’s cutting-edge technology, the OSQ Series blends extreme optical control, advanced thermal management and modern clean aesthetics to dramatically reduce maintenance and energy costs for a rapid return on investment. In automotive frontline (AF) applications, the OSQ-HO luminaire supports true-to-life colours with a Colour Rendering Index (CRI) of 90 and optical distributions that are optimized to highlight vehicles on display. The new products offer excellent performance across all optics and lumen configurations.
The new luminaire delivers efficacy of up to 125 lumens-per-watt (LPW) for maximum utility rebates and a dramatically lower total cost of ownership. The fixtures are also backed by Cree’s industry-leading 10-year warranty.
The Cree OSQ-HO Series will be available to ship this summer and is sold through Cree lighting sales channels throughout Canada and the U.S. Please visit http://creecanada.com/products/exterior/area/osq-series-high-output-area/http://lighting.cree.com/osq-seriesho-area to learn more.
