"With XLamp LEDs, our new dome lights are twice as bright as competing products and produce a softer, more appealing white light," said Mike Grote, Grote business development manager. "In addition, XLamp LEDs operate at a lower forward voltage, which is a major competitive advantage for our lights."
Grote added that the company engineered its new lights to cast broad light distribution similar to the traditional fluorescent lamps.
"The transportation industry has been an early adopter of LED-based lighting systems," said Mark McClear, Cree director of marketing for XLamp LEDs. "The new interior dome light outperforms earlier LED solutions through a combination of higher light output from Cree XLamp power LEDs and optimized fixture design by Grote's engineering team."
