LED Bulbs Offer Steep Energy Savings Over Incandescents

Operating more than 20 times longer than equivalent incandescent bulbs while consuming far less energy, the company’s PAR-style high-power, high-efficacy LED lamps operate either in a 120 Vac dimmable mode or with a wide input-voltage range from 90 to 290 Vac. The Edison medium screw-base and GU24 bi-pin base bulbs come in various PAR20, PAR30 and PAR38 styles with energy consumption ranging from 7W (PAR20) through 12W (PAR30) and up to 15W (PAR38). The lamps directly replace incandescents and halogen lamps that consume up to 100W and fluorescent bulbs up to 26W. They deliver a 3200K warm-white light and a CRI of 82 with a focused beam of about 45°. Brightness ranges from 333 lumens (PAR20) to 762 lumens (PAR38). Prices range from $56.40 (PAR20(GU)-8W-XIW series) to $103.50 (PAR38(GU)-15W-XIW series). LEDTRONICS, INC., Torrance, CA. (800) 579-4875.
