Date Announced: 22 May 2013 UL certified downlight solution now ready for utility rebatesLONGMONT, Colo. -- TerraLUX Inc., an industry leader that designs, patents, and manufactures LED-based lighting solutions, announced today that its DLR7-H LED downlight retrofit kit has received ENERGY STAR® certification.The TerraLUX DLR7-H eliminates the need to constantly be changing out overheated, burnt out, horizontally mounted CFL bulbs in recessed downlights. The DLR7-H is more efficient and offers a longer lifespan than CFLs in downlight installations. In many commercial buildings, downlights provide a significant amount of common area illumination, many running 24 hours a day/7 days a week. The TerraLUX DLR7-H is UL certified for retrofit and over 60,000 hours of continuous use, retaining more than 70% of its original light output after close to 7 years of non-stop lighting."We are thrilled that the DLR7-H has earned ENERGY STAR® approval," said Business Development Manager at TerraLUX, Matthew Sallee. "Customers considering an LED retrofit project are doing so for two reasons, maintenance savings and energy savings. Having ENERGY STAR® on the DLR7-H will reinforce to our customers that they are making the smart choice when they choose TerraLUX products for their retrofit."The DLR7-H simply installs into existing can hardware, with no external ballasts or drivers required and no change to the look of the fixture. Compatible with most 6-10 inch recessed CFL cans, up to 277 volts, the DLR7-H is suitable for indoor and outdoor use. The DLR7-H typically replaces 2 x 13 watt CFL or 2 x 18 watt CFL or 1 x 26 watt CFL using only 16 watts of input power.The DLR7-H is available in five color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, 5000K) all with Color Rendering above 80 CRI.For more information about the DLR7-H and all TerraLUX LED lighting solutions, visit: www.terraluxillumination.com/downlight.About TerraLUX Inc.TerraLUX Inc., headquartered in Longmont, CO, invents, designs, patents, manufactures, and distributes innovative high power LED solutions for general illumination, industrial, commercial, medical and portable applications.
