DURHAM, N.C. - Building on its leadership in LED lighting, Cree announces it is demonstrating a prototype version of the LR6 LED recessed downlight that consumes just 6.5 W of electricity, resulting in 665 lumens, an efficacy of 102 lumens per watt and a power factor greater than 0.9.

Shown at LIGHTFAIR International in New York, the high-efficiency LR6 prototype features TrueWhite™ technology, resulting in a 92 color rendering index and a 3500 K color temperature.

"By using the latest Cree LEDs, the XLamp® XP-G, we were able to achieve this great efficiency," said Gerry Negley, chief technologist for Cree LED Lighting. "We continue to push the envelope with LED technology-because consumers deserve high-quality light without toxic mercury or wasted energy."
