Offering greater longevity and shock resistance than compact fluorescent lamps, the LEDtronics series of LED lamps replace CFLs in all directional lighting applications, such as lanterns beaming light away from the wall, wall sconces beaming light in one primary direction, ceiling lights beaming 90° down, uplights beaming skyward, and ambient, accent or artwork lighting in showrooms, galleries, labs, utility rooms, etc. They provide illumination at a wide viewing angle of 110 degrees.
The CFL-replacing series of LED lamps are available in configurations that consume only 5 watts and replace CFLs up to 13 watts, or use 7 watts and replace CFLs up to 23 watts, effectively reducing energy consumption by up to 70 percent. Depending on color temperature and bulb wattage, the lamps provide around 350 to 575 lumens of directional light.
The solid-state design of the LED lamps renders them impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching, and environmental extremes. They boast faster turn-on and reaction time compared to compact fluorescent lamps yet provide comparable luminous intensity and pure wavelength light for a more uniform and steady illumination with neither halation nor flickering. In typical applications they provide sharper, higher intensity illumination and better visibility than standard lamps and achieve full brightness more rapidly.
Built with a dedicated LED driver with PWM constant current supply to ensure longer operating lifespan and to minimize brightness deterioration due to overdriven LEDs, the lamps are rated at 50,000 hours MTBF, and their rugged but lightweight aluminum housing helps dissipate heat, keeping them cool. Their long life and reliability in a wide range of operating temperatures lower costs by reducing re-lamp frequency, while their cool operation translates into less load on air conditioning. The clear acrylic lens cover shields the lamps against accidental impact, in contrast to the dangers of breaking glass associated with CFLs.
As well, unlike the CFLs, the LED lamps are environment-friendly—they contain neither mercury nor lead, and they do not emit harmful radiation such as ultraviolet light.
