Energy Saving LED T6 Tube Bulbs, A Reliable Alternative to Conventional T6 Incandescent Bulbs
Press release date: March 26, 2014
LEDtronics® announces the EXLT6-4 Series LED Exit Light Bulbs that presents a reliable alternative to conventional T6 incandescent exit-sign tube bulbs. Brighter, longer lasting, dramatically more power-efficient and maintenance-free, the EXLT6-4 Series of exit-sign bulbs offers a sensible choice when it comes to replacing energy-hungry, short-lived and breakage-prone old-technology incandescent bulbs.
The EXLT6-4 Series T6 tube bulbs are available in either 4200K Natural White, 633nm Super Red, or 514nm Aqua Green LED light colors. These LED T6 tube bulbs are ideal replacements in single- or double-sided exit sign fixtures, picture lights or as omni-directional lighting, accent lighting, indicator lighting or as decorative lighting.
Because LEDs have no filament, their solid-state design renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average lifespan of more than 50,000 hours (5.7-plus years) for white LED or over 100,000 hours with colored LEDs, these durable LED bulbs operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulb! LED lamps produce almost no heat, and use up to 90% less operating power than equivalent filament-based bulbs, making them as friendly to the environment as they are to the operating budget.
The flame-retardant and impact-resistant polycarbonate resin construction of the LEDtronics EXLT6-4 Series LED bulbs allows for greater durability as well as visibility in bright light when it may be too light to see your typical incandescent bulb light up. Complying with UL924 light output requirements, the EXLT6-4 series exit LED bulbs provide the assurance of reliability when it comes to brightly guiding the way out of emergency situations such as heavy smoke. They are the ideal solution for a wide variety of applications ranging from above doorways in offices, emergency exits in hospitals, stairways in parking structures to theater fire exits, in addition to architectural décor.
Designed with standard bases such as E12 candelabra, 15mm DC bayonet, E17 screw bases, these LED T6 tube bulbs can be directly installed, requiring no modifications to the socket or to the circuit that supplies power. They can easily replace incandescent bulbs such as 20T6½ DC or IF and 15T6. The EXLT6-4 LED bulbs are compatible with most standard exit signs and are suitable for use in both single- or double-sided fixtures.
All Series EXLT6-4 LED bulbs are rated for incoming voltages of 120VAC and put out from 23 to 68 lumens (depending on the LED light color) of unfiltered light, using less than 1 watt of energy. In addition, the LED bulbs come with a 5-year warranty.
Exit signs are lit 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. For facility managers concerned with balancing durability with containing costs, replacing your exit signs from incandescent bulbs to LED can yield 80%-90% energy savings and reduce bulb replacement costs, while keeping your premises safe and your exit door locations well lit more of the time! Savings from reduced maintenance costs and downtime quickly return the capital investment expenditure!
The LEDtronics EXLT6-4 T6 LED tube bulbs retail for $8.75 each. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for special requirements.
