Cree Inc. has revealed what it noted as a first-of-its-kind deal with Lutron Electronics Co. Inc. to embed Lutron EcoSystem technology on a chip in Cree luminaires. This partnership aims to speed up LED adoption and increase energy efficiency for building designers, contractors and owners.

According to them, the combination of LED technology from Cree with energy control strategies from Lutron yields the world's most energy-efficient commercial lighting control and delivery system. The solution introduces digital intelligence to the control of Cree LED luminaires and delivers integrated, pre-tested system compatibility that is backed by the Lutron Services Company to ensure performance of the system as a whole.

By using Lutron energy management solutions, Cree LED lighting can significantly reduce building owners operating costs and continue to deliver the fastest payback in the industry. Cree LED fixtures are an ideal match for embedded Lutron EcoSystem technology because digital control and dimming of LED fixtures can significantly extend LED lifetime, and also allow flexibility to reconfigure and improve occupant experience in any space.

According to Cree analysis, Cree CR Troffers equipped with Lutron EcoSystem technology can increase luminaire lifetime up to 50 percent and substantially increase lumen maintenance factors. This calculation is for typical buildings with Lutron lighting control systems, where the average output level of troffers is around 70 percent when typical lighting efficiency strategies such as daylight harvesting, personal control and high-end trim are used.

The first products to feature embedded Lutron EcoSystem technology are the Cree CR Series of LED troffers with other products to follow. Cree LED fixtures embedded with Lutron EcoSystem technology are scheduled for specification and shipment in summer.
