New Dimmable LED R40/BR40 ETL-Listed Bulbs
Press release date: March 11, 2014
The R40LED-20W-XHW-120AFD comes with a softly diffused, precision domed, UV-stabilized polycarbonate lens that directs high-brightness 1,520 lumens, 109-degree wide beam of light in a floodlight illumination pattern. The LED R40/BR40 bulb operates in a voltage input of 120VAC, offering long-lasting durability and easy drop-in installation in existing standard 26mm Edison screw-base sockets. These high-power bulbs with high-grade LEDs are able to replace R40 or BR40 incandescent bulbs up to 125 watts, while consuming only 20 watts of power, resulting in tremendous energy savings of up to 80%.
The new state-of-the-art LED R40/BR40 bulb provides a warm light color in the 2700K to 3000K range, akin to halogen white (other temperature colors available for qualified applications). As well, it boasts outstanding color fidelity with a CRI greater than 80 that enhances color nuances. In addition, these lamps maintain 70 percent or greater of LED lumens at 50,000 hours of operation — a lifespan many times longer than the equivalent halogen bulb!
Because LEDs have no filament, their solid-state design renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. These ROHS-compliant ETL-listed LED bulbs contain no harmful mercury or other toxic elements; and unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not emit large amounts of heat, and little to no ultraviolet or infrared light. This makes them perfect for use in museums, hospitals, offices or areas where UV radiation might degrade the surroundings (such as illuminating valuable artwork, wine cellars or food service areas). The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce building air-conditioning load on energy.
These economical, high-quality bulbs are perfect in non-wet outdoor or dimming indoor flood lighting applications such as track lighting, ceiling-can down light fixtures, security and emergency lights, general/architectural and landscape lighting, display case fixtures and cabinet lighting, sign spot lighting, OEM equipment lighting, bio-medical and medical applications, museums or theatrical-effects lighting.
Since LED lights are much more energy efficient than halogens and other filament style lamps, these bulbs are perfect operating with an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power in cold or warm environments. Also, they reduce light pollution in outdoor installations and, as a result, are compatible with the international “Dark Skies” initiative.
The R40/BR40 style LED bulb comes with a LEDtronics 3-year warranty, and is available through LEDtronics distributors. Retail price is $64.25 each. Quantity discounts are available to qualified distributors. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for large order requirements.
