CLEVELAND — GE Consumer & Industrial has introduced two new lamps that enable restaurants and other commercial customers to make significant strides toward general lighting with white light-emitting diodes (LEDs).
The 7-watt GE Energy Smart LED PAR20 lamp and a 10-watt GE Energy Smart LED PAR30 lamp, products of ecomagination, are available as spots or floods, feature advanced optical control to concentrate the white LED light on the targeted area and effectively diminish wasted extraneous light.
"One noticeable technology achievement is the superior beam. It's a better directed light," said Gus Lanese, manager of growth initiatives, GE Consumer & Industrial.
While delivering consistent and crisp halogen-like color, the company's new 10-watt, 3000K GE Energy Smart LED lamp features include:
- Produces 340 lumens
- Offers up to 80 percent energy savings compared with 45-watt standard incandescent R30 lamps (485 lumens) or 50-watt Halogen PAR30 lamps (630 lumens) with reduced light levels
- Over a 20,000-hour rated life, the new 10-watt LED lamp delivers significant maintenance savings, plus up to $15 per year in energy cost savings (compared with a 45-watt incandescent R30 lamp, assuming 4,500 annual operating hours at $0.10/kWh)
- Standard and long neck versions are available
The GE 7-watt LED lamp (200 lumens) features include:
- Reduces energy consumption by 77 percent when compared with standard 30-watt incandescent R20 reflectors (200 lumens)
- A 20,000-hour rated life to 70 percent of initial light output
Neither of the new LED lamps contains lead or mercury. Both are RoHS compliant.
