Original Press Release:

New GE 250-Watt PA SPXX CMH® Lamp To Offer Installation Flexibility, Energy Savings For Color-Critical Applications

CLEVELAND - Newly available in late 2004 will be an open-rated GE 250-watt PA SPXX CMH® lamp that gives retail, grocery and gas/convenience store chains, as well as industrial end-users several reasons to replace 400-watt standard metal halide lamps. Among its numerous advantages will be more color consistency, higher color rendering and lower wattage with superior lumen maintenance (85 percent versus 70 percent for standard 400-watt metal halide).

Energy savings will add up because the GE 250-watt PA SPXX CMH lamp will offer a similar light output of a 400-watt standard metal halide lamp while saving 150-watts per lamp.

Designed for vertical and horizontal burn positions - most pulse-arc lamps restrict burn positions - the versatile GE 250-watt PA SPXX CMH lamp will answer the need for an energy-saving, color-critical product that's suitable for high-bay retail applications and lower mountings such as gas/convenience store canopy applications. The new 250-watt lamp will join a family of products that includes GE 350-watt CMH and GE 400-watt CMH lamps.
