Cree Lighting Honored with 2022 LEDs Magazine BrightStar Award

Published on: 6/22/2022

Racine, WI, June 22, 2022 – Cree Lighting announced today that its CPY500™ Series canopy luminaire has been recognized with an LEDs Magazine BrightStar Award for performance, reliability, efficiency, ease of integration/use and innovation. A panel representing a cross-section of industry stakeholders from LEDs Magazine editors to component manufacturers, SSL end product suppliers, consultants, and lighting designers recognized Cree Lighting as an honoree with a score of 3.5 to 5 stars.

Like its predecessor, LEDs Magazine’s Sapphire Awards, the BrightStar Award recognizes ingenuity in commercial product offerings across the LED and solid-state lighting supply chain. The BrightStar Awards honor the Sapphire legacy of recognizing product developments that have advanced LED-centric SSL components, systems, and applications into the mainstream and have promoted performance and capabilities beyond traditional light sources.

The new CPY500™ Series combines an attractive, low-profile form factor, diffused optics and an expansive 11” x 11” edge-to-edge illuminated lens design, providing a 246% larger illuminated surface area than a typical 7” x 7” canopy fixture. The new design was carefully engineered to minimize up-light and spillover, ensuring every lumen is directed where it is needed, resulting in fuel islands bathed in crisp, uniform light with significantly higher visual comfort. Multiple lens and bezel configurations enable owners to fine-tune the lighting experience to their specific requirements and preferences.

The CPY500™ Series also sets itself apart with streamlined, labor-saving serviceability for both new construction and retrofit scenarios. Installation of the CPY500™ Series can be done by one person working below and then above the canopy for wire-up. The components are then easily accessed for inspection or service from below. There’s no need to go topside on the canopy after initial installation.

The CPY500™ Series LED canopy luminaire is now available for order through Cree Lighting® petroleum sales channels throughout North and South America. To learn more about this breakthrough luminaire, please visit www.creelighting.com/CPY500.
