Verbatim launches seven new energy-saving LED lamps

Verbatim announces seven new additions to its range of energy-saving LED lamps. The lamps, which have a service life of up to 35,000 hours, provide between 70% and 85% energy savings over conventional types of comparable light output.

They are designed as direct replacements for incandescent light bulbs, halogen lamps and compact fluoresecent lamps (CFLs) in general purpose lighting.

Five of the new products are spotlights with GU10 sockets. These operate from a 200-240VAC grid supply. They have power ratings between 4W and 8W and replace conventional lamps rated from 20W to 60W. Colour temperatures range from 2700K warm white to 5300K cool white and the minimum colour rendering index (CRI) of these lamps is between 75 and 80, depending on the model.

A new MR16 spotlight with a GU5.3 socket operates from 12VAC or DC. The 6.5W lamp can be used to replace 20W conventional types and has a lifetime of 35,000 hours. It offers cools white light at 4200K and has a minimum CRI of 75.

With an E27 (screw type) fitting, Verbatim's new R63 8W spotlight is the most powerful of the new solid state LED lamps. It replaces conventional lamps rated at 60W, providing energy savings of over 80%. Like the MR16 lamps, its CRI is at least 75, service life is 35,000
hours and the lamp is dimmable.

With the exception of two 5.5W GU10 models, all the new lamps are dimmable.

All Verbatim LED lamps are based on phosphor coatings applied to blue LEDs. This creates a broad spectrum of white light. Lenses within the fixtures focus the light and built-in electrical circuits drive the LEDs efficiently, enabling initial costs to be recovered through energy savings and the exceptionally long service life of the lamps.

In Europe, lighting in homes and businesses accounts for about 20% of all electricity consumption, so conversion to LED lighting has a significant impact on enegy usage and carbon footprint. Unlike CFLs, which contain mercury, LED lamps do not contain hazardous materials.

Verbatim LED lamps are available through major electrical wholesalers and retailers.
