Lunera Lighting Launches the Next Generation Helen Lamp GX23

A Plug and Play LED Replacement Lamp for 13W Single or Double Tube CFLs

Santa Clara, Calif. – Lunera® Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology announces the next generation plug and play replacement for compact fluorescent lamps (CFL), the Helen Lamp GX23. Commercial building owners and operators can save energy and reduce operating expenses by simply replacing the 13W CFL commonly used in downlights and sconces. Lunera’s five-watt Helen Lamp reduces lighting energy consumption by over 60 percent, while consistently delivering quality illumination.

“We invented the plug-and play LED category with the Helen Lamp, which now has well over one million units  installed.  We’re excited to expand the family and launch the next generation Helen Lamp GX23 that continues Lunera’s tradition of bringing simple and cost effective LED solutions to the lighting market,” said Lunera’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tom Quinn.

The Helen Lamp GX23 has been enhanced to improve magnetic ballast compatibility and reliability. The lamp unlocks additional value for customers by offering line voltage support where the ballast can be bypassed and the lamp can operate directly off of 100V-305V 50/60Hz AC.  Lunera’s design team used thermally conductive plastic instead of aluminum for the heat sink to reduce both the weight and the cost of the product, while maintaining long-term reliability.

The two-pin lamp delivers over 500 lumens of usable light and has a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of over 80. It is dry and damp certified and can be used in open or fully enclosed fixtures. To create just the right ambiance for a variety of commercial lighting requirements, the Helen Lamp is available in four color temperature choices including: 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K.

The long lifespan of the Helen Lamp GX23 is rated at 50,000 hours to L70, five times longer than comparable CFLs, offering additional maintenance savings. LED lamps do not contain mercury or other toxic materials, so recycling and disposal is simple. The Listed (UL1993) and Classified (UL1598-C) lamp is supported by a five-year warranty and is now available for purchase.
