NASA and LEDs—Lighting the HQ
The products installed to date are the Cree CR22™ architectural LED troffers. The product delivers the highest, most comprehensive set of performance characteristics in the industry, with efficacy of 100LPW standard and a 90LPW option. The product will last from 50,000 to 75,000 lifetime hours. More than 5,200 more are planned before the upgrade is complete.
Not only is energy going to be less expensive as a result, the fixture count itself is declining by 10%. The troffers feature Lutron® EcoSystem® dimming, for easy configurability and user experience. It also extends LED lifetime.
I promise, the next NASA piece I write up will be out of this world in a different way… If you want more info on the Cree products involved, click here.
