Torrance, CA — LEDtronics, Inc.®, has introduced LED replacements for recessed T-bar fluorescent ceiling luminaires: CLL2X2-400-TPW-001W uses only 24W power and replaces 2ftx2ft standard fluorescent 64W units, while CLL2X2-800-TPW-001W consumes less than 36W and replaces 80W fluorescent fixtures. They operate on a voltage range of 100-277VAC, providing solid-state 5000K pure-white lighting that creates less heat compared to conventional lighting, reducing air conditioning demands in offices, closets, hallways, classrooms, work rooms, conference rooms and other retail or commercial indoor lighting locations.
The LEDtronics luminaires offer up to 300% longer lifespan compared to fluorescent lamps, using up to 50% less energy than standard fluorescent 2'x 2' panels, without compromising on performance. The CLL2X2-400-TPW-001W provides a bright beam of 1,840 lumens, with an efficient power factor of 1.0, while the CLL2X2-800-TPW-001W offers 2,753 lumens and a power factor of 0.99. Both deliver a high Color Rendering Index of 75 that enhances all colors in the lighting environment.
The luminaires are easily installed using existing T-bar recessed 2ft×2ft module light fixtures, and are solidly constructed featuring a 22-gauge, cold-rolled steel housing with baked white-polyester finish; clear prismatic acrylic lens in a 20ga steel frame, with T-hinge and positive spring-loaded latch.
The housing and power supply are UL-rated, and the units are compliant with Restriction of Hazardous Substances Directive (RoHS), making them human- and environment-friendly, free of lead, mercury or other toxic metals. They also are free of harmful ultraviolet or infrared emissions as well as RFI/EMI/HD — problems related to fluorescents in hospital radiology areas, sensitive instruments, etc.
The LEDtronics fixture units come with a three-year full warranty. Because LEDs have no breakable glass nor toxic gases, 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), these maintenance-free LED luminaires eliminate repeated relamping, and operate in ambient room temperatures of -22°F to +104°F [-30°C to +40°C], providing much better performance in cold freezer-type applications.
