MaxLite introduces LED GU24 omnidirectional A-Lamp certified for Energy Star use

April 3, 2013
Date Announced: 03 Apr 2013 West Caldwell, New Jersey – Substantially reducing the costs and time for LED lighting fixtures to get ENERGY STAR® qualified, MaxLite® is the first company to achieve placement of a GU24 LED A19 Lamp on the ENERGY STAR Certified Subcomponent Database (CSD). This milestone makes it much easier and quicker for lighting fixture manufacturers to launch ENERGY STAR qualified LED lighting fixtures into the marketplace.“Having LED lamps certified and now available in the popular GU24 base used in many ENERGY STAR lighting fixtures allows manufacturers a quicker path to the market with more efficient sources and added flexibility in lighting technologies,” said Chris Primous, vice president of OEM Sales.MaxLite’s new GU24 LED Omnidirectional Lamp will reduce costs in ENERGY STAR testing to manufacturers and dramatically reduce the time it takes to complete the product qualification process for makers of specific lighting fixtures including decorative pendants and chandeliers, ceiling fan light kits, bath vanity fixtures, wall sconces and portable desk task lights.The Omnidirectional GU24 10-watt LED A19 Lamp emits equivalent light to a 13-watt compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) or a 60-watt incandescent lamp, and distributes a soft warm 300-degree beam of uniform white light with even illumination from the socket base in all directions. Lumen maintenance is maximized by using a multi-layered tapered heat sink. Previously, fixture manufacturers seeking an ENERGY STAR CSD light source had to sacrifice dimming in favor of energy savings. MaxLite’s Omnidirectional GU24 LED A19 Lamp is dimmable down to five percent on a wide variety of common dimming controls. The LED Lamps are matched for color quality and consistency and are designed with a proprietary housing for thermal heat protection that keeps the LED junction temperature well below specification.
