Dimmable PAR30 LED Bulbs Offer a Full, Smooth Dimming Range on Most Standard 120VAC Dimmer Units, Only Consume 15 Watts of Power

Torrance, CA, September 25, 2009 — LEDtronics® announces the latest additions to its series of energy-efficient replacements for PAR30-style light bulbs. The high-power Dimmable PAR30 is available in Halogen Warm White (2700 to 2800 Kelvin) and Warm White (3200K). These Dimmable PAR30 LED bulbs offer long-lasting durability, low power consumption and money savings. They run on standard 120 volts AC, requiring no special adapters, while only consuming 12 watts to a maximum of 15 watts.

These Dimmable LED PAR30 bulbs work with most standard 120 VAC dimmer units, giving you a full, smooth dimming range and directly replace standard halogens and metal halide bulbs up to 66 watts, providing a 75% energy savings on full brightness.

In addition, the Dimmable PAR30 series boasts an outstanding color quality, a focused beam of around 45 degrees, powerful 426 lumens (XIW) and 375 (XHW) lumens of brightness, easy drop-in installation in existing 26mm Edison or E27 European screw-in base sockets, and sturdy construction with UV-stabilized plastic lens over each of the five 3-watt, high-power Cree XR-E LEDs, encapsulated around a heat-sinking magnesium alloy housing.

Because LEDs have no filament, their solid-state design renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average lifespan of more than 50,000 hours (5.7-plus years), white LED bulbs operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulb. Unlike compact fluorescents, LEDs contain no harmful mercury, and because they do not emit large amounts of heat, and no ultraviolet or infrared light, they protect what they are illuminating—everything from priceless art to fresh arugula. This makes them perfect for use in museums, hospitals, offices or areas where UV radiation might degrade the surroundings (such as illuminating valuable artwork, wine cellars or food counters). The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce the fire hazard normally associated with the use of incandescent lamps.

Lighting designers and commercial institutions should sacrifice nothing in the pursuit of beautiful, energy-efficient light, and with the Dimmable PAR30 series, they won't need to compromise. These economical, high-quality floodlights are perfect in track lighting, security and emergency lights, general/architectural and landscape lighting, display case fixtures and cabinet lighting, signage and back lighting, aviation/aerospace lighting systems, industrial OEM equipment lighting, bio-medical and medical applications, museums or theatrical-effects lighting.

These Dimmable PAR30 LED floodlight bulbs offer a directional light that is perfect for use in recessed lighting, accent lighting, garage or workshop lights, down lights and ceiling cans. These super-bright LED bulbs also are an excellent deterrent for intruders; you can depend on them to illuminate the perimeter of your house and enhance existing security measures. Since LED lights are 300% more efficient than compact fluorescent lamps, these bulbs are perfect operating on an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power in cold or warm environments.

The maintenance-free LEDtronics Dimmable PAR30 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 UV or IR radiation, it reduces light pollution, and it is compatible with the international “Dark Skies” initiative.

Other dimmable LED bulbs available from LEDtronics include PAR38, PAR20 and R30 styles.

The LEDtronics Dimmable PAR30-style LED bulbs — PAR30-15W-XHW-120AMD Halogen Warm White and PAR30-15W-XIW-120AMD Warm White — retail for $87.50 each. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for special requirements.
