USA: Linear fluorescent lighting may have seen its last days thanks to the inventive, new Cree UR Series LED Upgrade Kit that can deliver payback in less than two years and makes upgrading to LED lighting simple and easy.
Cree Inc. introduced a 102 lumen-per-watt linear LED upgrade kit to replace fluorescent lamps. The new UR Series is easy to install, saves over 50 percent in energy, provides better light, and lasts up to twice as long as the standard 32W fluorescent lamps it replaces.
The innovative upgrade kit is designed to fit into existing T8/T12 linear fluorescent fixtures – allowing end users to easily upgrade to LED. The new UR Series LED upgrade kit covers both two-feet and four-feet lengths in various lamp configurations.
The UR Series installs faster than competitive retrofit LED tubes and complex LED conversion kits due to its unique magnet design, quick connect technology and form-fitted driver. Designed to be compatible with existing fluorescent fixtures, the UR Series LED lightbars and driver can fit into almost any linear fluorescent luminaire without the need to reuse existing sockets and ballasts.
