LED chip, lamp and lighting fixture maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA has launched the KBL LED High-Bay Series for illuminating industrial, retail, civic and athletic venues with dramatically reduced glare. The new high-bay’s efficacy and quality are engineered to deliver maximum savings and industrial-strength performance, with up to 150 lumens per watt (LPW) and a payback as fast as 1.5 years.
The new KBL LED High-Bay Series for the high-bay market delivers an average of 2000 lumens more than the nearest competitor, claims David Elien, Cree senior VP, lighting. “With best-in-class lumen maintenance in applications up to 50°C ambient, the KBL Series offers unprecedented reliability for the rigors of retail, industrial manufacturing and warehouse applications,” he adds.
The KBL Series is available in 18,000 and 24,000 nominal lumen output options with correlated color temperatures (CCTs) between 3000K and 5000K. It is virtually maintenance free, with zero warm-up or re-strike time.
The new series is said to offer increased productivity and safety by minimizing work stoppages and maintenance to replace lamps and ballasts, and is eligible for DLC Premium Certification to advance corporate sustainability goals.
The KBL LED High-Bay Series is available to order now and sold through Cree lighting sales channels throughout the USA and Canada.
