USA - LEDtronics has announced the latest additions to its series of energy-efficient replacements for PAR38 light bulbs. The high-power PAR38-12X2WF series of warm-white and pure-white frosted soft-flood bulbs offer "long-lasting durability, low power consumption and money savings". They run a wide range of voltages from 85 to 265VAC requiring no special adapters, while consuming less than 18 watts. The bulbs directly replace halogens and metal halides up to 90 watts, providing 77%-85% energy savings, says the company.
In addition, the series PAR38-12X2WF boasts a wide-focused beam of around 90 degrees, powerful 661 (XIW) and 808 (XPW) lumens of brightness, easy drop-in installation in existing 26mm Edison/E27 European base sockets, and sturdy construction with UV-stabilized plastic lens and magnesium alloy housing.
The maintenance-free LEDtronics PAR38 series comes with CE safety assurance and is RoHS certified-it adheres to strict European guidelines concerning the Reduction of Hazardous Substances such as lead and mercury. Since it produces no harmful ultraviolet or infrared radiation, it reduces light pollution, and it is compatible with the international Dark Skies initiative.
