Osram Sylvania’s Contractor series rated to 11,000 hours
By Renée Francoeur
March 28, 2016 – Osram Sylvania says its new Contractor series LED portfolio is the first-to-market one that includes lighting solutions rated up to 11,000 hours (L70) at “price points for practically any socket.” These products reduce energy and maintenance costs, the company says, but have a traditional shape.
The Contractor series A19 LEDs replace 40W and 60W traditional lamps but use only 6W and 8.5W respectively, and are available in both 2700K (soft white) and 5000K (daylight) colour temperatures.
The portfolio also includes 75W and 100W replacement A19 LED lamps; solutions for track lighting such as R20 (dimmable), MR16, PAR16, PAR20, PAR30, PAR30LN and PAR38 LED lamps; and dimmable BR30 and BR40 lamps and RT5/6 LED recessed downlight kits for ceiling cans in various colour temperatures.
These lights deliver energy savings up to 88%, according to Osram, compared to incandescent light lamps; are RoHS compliant; contain no mercury, lead or other hazardous materials; and emit no UV or IR radiation.
