California-based LEDtronics has launched the EXL-TPW series of pure white LED exit light bulbs.
The bulb has been launched as an alternative to conventional T6 incandescent exit-sign tubes as it is brighter and more energy-efficient. EXL-TPW series is maintenance free and lasts long.
The LEDs feature a solid state design which is impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes as it does not feature any filament. With an average lifespan of more than 50,000 hours (more than five years), white LED bulbs operate 20 times longer than their equivalent incandescent bulbs.
LED lamps do not produce much heat, and use up to 90% less operating power than filament-based bulbs, making them environment-friendly. The flame-retardant and impact-resistant polycarbonate resin construction of the LEDtronics EXL-TPW series LED bulbs allows for greater durability as well as visibility in bright environments.
Complying with UL924 light output requirements, the exit LED bulbs provide better lighting in heavy smoke situations. These can be incorporated in a wide variety of applications ranging from above doorway applications in offices, emergency exits in hospitals, stairways in parking structures, to theater fire exits, in addition to architectural décor.
Designed on standard bases, the LEDtronics replacements can be directly installed, without any modifications to the socket or to the circuit that supplies power. The bulbs come in base options of E12 Candelabra Screw, 15mm E17 Intermediate Screw, and 15mm DC Bayonet, and can easily replace incandescent such as 20T6½ DC or IF and 15T6.
The EXL-TPW LED bulbs are compatible with most standard exit signs and are suitable for use in both single-or double-sided fixtures. The LEDs are rated for incoming voltages of 120VAC and put out from 21 to 25 lumens (depending on base) of unfiltered, 5,000K pure White light, using less than 1 watt of energy. In addition, the LED bulbs come with a five-year warranty.
The LEDtronics EXL-TPW-R exit light LED bulbs retail for $19.95 each.
