MUSKEGON — EarthTronics Inc. Tuesday introduced a new 12-watt LED lamp that will easily replace 18-watt compact fluorescent lamps, increasing energy savings and performance life.
The bulb fits the G24q-2 base, uses 33 percent less energy than the CFL that it replaces, and illuminates identically to the CFL that it replaces.
EarthTronics says the lamp produces 1,100 lumens and works directly on existing instant start electronic ballasts for easy “plug and play” installation. No rewiring is necessary.
The 12-watt lamp is available in 3,000K (warm light), 4,000K (cool light) and 5,000K (sunlight) colors, with a color rendering index greater than 80.
The product design replicates the look of the lamp is it replacing and provides a similar light distribution. No modifications to the fixture are required.
EarthTronics says the bulb is intended for use in commercial applications where plug in CFL lamps are used, including outdoor floodlights, post lamps, recessed downlights, surface mount ceiling fixtures, wall fixtures, vanity fixtures and sconces. It can be used in any rotation or orientation in open or enclosed fixtures. It also offers instant-on performance and full brightness without delay.
The LED plug-in comes with a 10-year warranty when used 6 hours a day. Its 25,000 hour rated life provides two to three times more service life than the CFL it replaces.
The EarthTronics 12-watt LED lamp is part of a family of products that include 10 watt (800 lumen) and 12 watt (1,100 lumen) in both G24q and GX23 lamp base types. They are available at retailers nationwide and can be purchased online.
Founded in 2007, EarthTronics develops innovative, energy efficient lighting products that provide a positive economic and environmental impact for customers. EarthTronics products include LED and CFL lamps from 5 watts to 65 watts that replace 25-watt to 300-watt incandescent lamps.
