MaxLite Launches LED PL Retrofit Lamps as Energy-Efficient CFL Replacements
Press release date: June 26, 2014
The new LED PL lamps easily retrofit a variety of commercial fixtures, including recessed cans, sconces, and ceiling fixtures commonly used to light retail stores, hotels and apartment buildings. The five- and seven-watt LEDs replace 13- and 18-watt compact fluorescents lamps (CFLs), respectively. Constructed with a lamp holder that rotates 270 degrees, the LED PL Retrofits feature a simple ballast bypass to ensure maintenance-free, energy-saving operation and higher performance. The damp-listed lamps offer instant-on capabilities and are backed by a limited five-year warranty.
“Our new LED PL Retrofit Lamps are versatile, energy-efficient sources that can be used with a broad range of lighting fixtures in retail, hospitality and high-occupancy dwellings,” said MaxLite Product Manager Alex Truong. “These lamps deliver high lumen output and efficacies while providing a significant operational savings due to decreased maintenance and lower energy costs.”
The LED PL Retrofit lamps deliver a color-rendering index (CRI) that is greater than 82, with uniform consistency, and a long, 50,000-hour life, which is five times longer than standard CFLs. The lamps are designed to operate on 120-277-volt systems. The LEDs deliver an output ranging from 450 to 750 lumens, with an efficacy of up to 110 lumens per watt. Models are available in correlated color temperatures (CCTs) ranging from 2700K to 5,000K.
