By Anthony Capkun
September 25, 2013 – 3M says its new LED A19 lamp is among the first approved for enclosed fixtures in commercial applications. The LED Advanced Light promises great heat management, energy efficiency and longevity, makes it suitable for difficult-to-reach fixtures, enclosed luminaires and other commercial applications.
The light recreates the bright, even glow of an incandescent bulb, says the company, but uses up to 80% less energy; most importantly, it is tested and approved for use in a totally enclosed luminaire. The lamps are available in 3000K or 4000K temperatures, offer instant-On illumination and can be used with a variety of dimmers. They join a family of LED products from 3M that include spot, flood and accent lights.
