New LED aims to replace standard lamps

compact-fluorescentLighting Science Group Corporation has developed a new light-emitting diode (LED) lamp that’s designed to replace the standard incandescent and compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) in homes and commercial environments.

The company unveiled the new lamp today the Lightfair International, Conference and Expo in New York City.

Engineered to optimise light output, color, quality, life and overall performance, the LED replacement lamp is available in the most popular standard incandescent lamp or bulb shape: A19. The dimmable, long-life LED also uses only 7.5 watts (84 per cent less than a standard incandescent lamp), reducing both energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions.

LEDs last 20 times longer than incandescent lamps and up to six times longer than CFLs. Unlike CFLs, LED also contain no hazardous materials such as mercury, do not emit harmful UV rays and can be turned on and off as needed, requiring no extra time to reach full brightness.

“The extraordinary pace of innovation at play in today’s world is transforming our ability to support sustainable initiatives without sacrificing light quality,” said Govi Rao, chairman and CEO of Lighting Science.

The new A19 LED replacement lamp is the first in a series of LED replacement A-lamps that Lighting Science expects to deliver to the market in the third quarter of 2009.
