Thursday, September 4, 2014

North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA of OSRAM Americas is launching ORIOS LED lamps, including A-line, MR16, BR, R and PAR lamps. Rated at up to 25,000 hours (L70), these cost-effective, long-life LED lamps can help contractors ease budget-conscious clients and end-users with converting to LED lighting and enjoying long-term cost savings.

“Everyone is talking about LED lighting and how it saves on energy bills and maintenance costs. For some customers, the upfront costs of quality LED lighting, or low quality products at a price point they are comfortable with, have prevented some businesses from upgrading,” said Robert Harrison, region head LED Lamps - Americas, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “We are meeting the needs of the market by delivering this new ORIOS LED line of solutions that are cost-effective and deliver high quality light. This is a win-win for end-users and electrical contractors and their clients.”

Well suited wherever an incandescent A-line lamp was used like a pendant fixture, wall sconce or table lamp, ORIOS A19 LED lamps deliver 450 and 800 lumens via 6W and 10W and replace 40W and 60W incandescent lamps, respectively. They are available in warm white 2700K or natural white 5000K color temperature, and last up to 25 times longer than incandescent lamps. These lamps offer a great value where a non-dimmable, semi-directional lamp is appropriate in both homes and businesses. ORIOS BR30 and R20 LED lamps deliver 650 and 325 lumens via only 9W and 5W, respectively, are available in a warm 2700 color temperature, and are ideal for applications such as art galleries, museums, offices, residential and retail. Perfect for offices, residences and restaurants, ORIOS PAR LED lamps are available in 7W PAR20, 10W PAR30LN and 11W PAR38 versions with a 30 degree beam angle and 3000K color temperature. ORIOS MR16 LED lamps are energy efficient 6W replacements for 30W halogen MR16 lamps and are available in 3000K color temperature and with narrow flood (25 degree) and flood beam (35 degree) angles.

ORIOS PAR, BR30 and R20 LED lamps are dimmable down to 10 percent and are indoor/outdoor rated. They, in addition to the MR16 LED lamps, also have a smooth heat sink design and are lightweight. ORIOS LED lamps offer greater energy savings up to 88 percent in comparison to traditional incandescent lamps. The 80+ CRI ensures good color rendition and can be used in many applications, both home and business. They need no warm-up time, and deliver full light output and stable color. ORIOS LED lamps are also environmentally preferred products that are RoHS compliant and contain no mercury, lead or other hazardous materials. In addition, they emit no UV or IR radiation that can cause fading and discoloration of fabric or artwork.
