By Alyssa Dalton
March 15, 2013 – Cree has announced the new AR series LED architectural troffer, delivering 100 lumens per watt ideal for corporate office, up-market retail, higher education and automotive applications. The troffer claims to provide 33% energy savings versus standard T8 fluorescent solutions and low maintenance costs with its designed lifetime of up to 75,000 hours. Users can choose between two available models: the AR22 troffer and AR24 troffer, and a range of colour temperatures to match existing fluorescent technologies (3500K and 4000K). The AR series supports dimming down to 5% with 0-10V controls. Lutron EcoSystem-enabled AR series troffers supporting dimming down to 5% are targeted to be available in mid-2013, says Cree.
