DURHAM, N.C. -- Cree, Inc., recently introduced the LS Series linear LED luminaire, designed to replace the hundreds of millions of fluorescent strip, wrap and industrial fixtures currently installed in North America. The Cree LS Series linear LED luminaire offers a market leading combination of sleek aesthetics and high performance, and complements Cree’s extensive troffer and linear luminaire portfolio. Designed in a slim, modern form factor with multiple mounting options and lumen packages, the new LS Series linear LED luminaire can reduce energy consumption by more than 25 percent and nearly eliminate costly maintenance expenses, making it the ideal replacement for retail, education and industrial applications.

Powered by Cree TrueWhite Technology, the LS Series linear LED luminaire delivers best-in-class color quality and accuracy, a key feature for applications where visual acuity and color rendering are important. Offering surface, pendant, suspended and cove mounting options in four and eight-foot configurations, the LS Series linear LED luminaire provides flexible installation and easy end-user customization to accommodate nearly any application. The LS Series linear LED luminaire also reduces the “cave effect” commonly found in outdated fluorescent luminaires by providing a desirable 10 percent uplight.

“The Cree LS Series linear LED luminiaire proves that customers don’t have to sacrifice modern aesthetics for high quality lighting,” said Norbert Hiller, Cree executive vice president, lighting. “We removed existing product barriers and delivered a linear luminaire that produces exceptional, long-lasting light in a modern form factor. The LS Series linear LED luminaire provides these benefits at a value price and with a 10-year limited warranty that will make choosing LED simple.”

    Are they cost-competitive with T-5's? If not, why bother? That's the feedback I have gotten when trying to introduce similar linear lights. So, Cree has introduced the $99 cobra head streetlight. That's a good sign. Have they done something similar that is not only superior and lasts longer but also costs less than the existing "high efficiency" linear bulbs? And, oh by the way, does the fixture also have to be replaced? Unless the initial cost is lower, seems like the investment in long-term savings is "not in the budget." What is the real deal here, Cree? Not the fluff.
