Torrance, Calif., March 25, 2011 — Continuing to add to its line of innovative and energy-efficient LED replacements for incandescent and halogen light bulbs, LEDtronics® announces its new series of PAR-style high-power, high-efficacy lamps with highest-grade LEDs and Fresnel lens.

Operating either in 120VAC dimmable or in a wide voltage input range of 90-290VAC, the line of Edison medium screw-base and GU24 bi-pin base bulbs come in various PAR20, PAR30 and PAR38 styles. With energy consumption ranging from 7 watts (PAR20) through 12 watts (PAR30) and up to 15 watts (PAR38), the lamps directly replace incandescents and halogen lamps that consume up to 100 watts, and even compact fluorescent bulbs up to 26 watts, resulting in tremendous energy savings. These state-of-the-art PAR lamps boast 20 percent higher efficacy than the previous generation of LEDtronics PAR lamps.

All of the 120VAC dimmable PAR lamps are UL listed.

The new lineup of PAR lamps provides an outstanding color quality in a 3200K warm-white light and boasts a CRI of 82 that enhances colors and safeguards their fidelity. The focused beam of around 45 degrees generates brightness ranging from 333 lumens (PAR20) to 762 lumens (PAR38).

These LEDtronics PAR LED bulbs offer long-lasting durability, easy drop-in installation in existing 26mm Edison/E27 European screw-base sockets or GU24 dual-pin sockets, and sturdy construction in an aluminum heat-sink body with UV-stabilized plastic Fresnel lens over the latest generation of high-efficacy Cree LEDs.

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 up to 50,000 hours, white LED bulbs operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulb! Unlike compact fluorescents, LEDs contain no harmful mercury; and unlike incandescents, LEDs do not emit large amounts of heat and no ultraviolet or infrared light. 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 service areas). The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce the fire hazard normally associated with the use of incandescent lamps.

These economical, high-quality medium spotlights are perfect in track lighting, ceiling-can downlight fixtures, security and emergency lights, general/architectural and landscape lighting, display case fixtures and cabinet lighting, sign spot lighting, OEM equipment lighting, bio-medical and medical applications, museums or theatrical-effects lighting.

Since LED lights are 50% more efficient than compact fluorescent lamps, these bulbs are perfect operating with an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power in cold or warm environments.

The environmentally friendly, maintenance-free LEDtronics PAR series is RoHS certified—it adheres to strict European guidelines concerning the Reduction of Hazardous Substances such as lead and mercury. As well, they reduce light pollution in outdooor installations and, as a result, are compatible with the international “Dark Skies” initiative.

The LEDtronics PAR-style LED bulbs come with a 3-year warranty and are available from LEDtronics distributors. The product line includes: PAR20(GU)-8W-XIW series ($56.40), PAR30(GU)-12W-XIW series ($82.50), PAR30L-12W-XIW series (long-neck, $82.50), and PAR38(GU)-15W-XIW series ($103.50).

Availability is stock to 4-8 weeks for largest requirements.
