Sylvania launching Natural Series with TruWave, promising next best thing to natural light
By Anthony Capkun
June 24, 2020 – Launching next month, Sylvania’s Natural Series of LED lighting products with TruWave technology promise the best alternative to natural light by mimicking the natural light spectrum, all while saving energy.
These products enhance colour contrasts without saturation, and deliver less-intense blue light to reduce eye strain, improve readability and support an improved sleep-wake cycle, says Sylvania. They further promise “superior flicker performance, lower glare and excellent dimmability (when applicable), which results in better visual comfort.
The Natural Series is suitable for a variety of applications, and will include numerous lighting profiles, including T8s in July, followed by volumetric troffers, retrofit doorkits, high-bays, RT downlights, A19s, A15s, B10s, BR30s, Edison ST19s, R20/BR40s, PARs and globes.
Also launching in July, Sylvania SubstiTube IPS Natural LED T8s and Sylvania LEDlescent Natural LED ballast-free T8s continue the promise of “best alternative to natural light” by mimicking the natural light spectrum—again, thanks to TruWave. These lamps feature a “shatterproof frosted nano-plastic design”.
SubstiTube IPS Natural LED T8s are dimmable down to 10% with compatible 0-10V ballasts, work on existing fluorescent ballasts and are compatible with instant-start and select programmed-rapid start electronic T8 ballasts with input voltage of 120-277V, as well as 347V.
