Date Announced: 05 Jan 2010 LEDtronics, Inc., entering its 27th year of leadership in innovative LED lighting solutions, announces the newest members in its series of high-brightness, energy-efficient LED replacements for A19-style light bulbs for home and commercial use. The DEC-A19-5X1W DécorLED Series comes with softly diffused, precision domed lensing that directs light at a 95-degree beam, and is available in Warm White (3000 Kelvin) and Pure White (6000K). These A19-style LED bulbs offer long-term durability, low power consumption, environmental sustainability and money savings. They run on a flexible voltage range of 85-265 VAC requiring no special adapters, and replace 40W to 50W incandescent bulbs while consuming less than 7 watts of power. In addition, the series DEC-A19-5X1W DécorLED boasts an outstanding color quality of up to 85 CRI, a horizontal beam spread of around 130 degrees, powerful 416 (XPW) and 340 lumens (XIW) of brightness, easy drop-in installation in existing 26mm Edison or E27 European screw-in base sockets, and sturdy construction with UV-stabilized polycarbonate lens over five 1-watt, high-power Cree XR-E LEDs encapsulated around a heat-sinking magnesium-alloy housing.Because LEDs have no filament, their solid-state design renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. With an average lifespan of more than 50,000 hours (5.7-plus years), white LED bulbs operate more than 20 times longer than the equivalent incandescent bulb, eliminating repeated relamping! Unlike compact fluorescents, LEDs contain no harmful mercury, and because they do emit negligible amounts of heat and no ultraviolet or infrared light, they protect what they are illuminating. The DEC-A19-5X1W Series features enhanced passive cooling that reduces junction temperatures, extending the life of the lamp. The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce the fire hazard normally associated with the use of incandescent lamps.These economical, elegant light bulbs offer a directional light that is perfect for use in recessed lighting, table/floor lamps, accent and decorative lighting, garage or workshop lights, down lights and ceiling cans, marquee signage and retail display. As a matter of fact, they are ideal for use anywhere you are currently using an incandescent A-19-style light bulb, including outdoor applications when contained in a sealed housing.Since LED lights are 300% more efficient than compact fluorescent lamps, these bulbs are perfect operating on an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power, in cold or warm environments.These maintenance-free lamps come with a 3-year warranty period and CE safety assurance, and are RoHS certified—they adhere to strict European guidelines concerning the Reduction of Hazardous Substances such as lead and mercury. Since they produce no harmful ultraviolet or infrared radiation, they reduce light pollution, and are compatible with the international “Dark Skies” initiative.The LEDtronics 7-watt DécorLED bulbs — DEC-A19-5X1W-XIW-001W (Warm White) and DEC-A19-5X1W-XPW-001W (Pure White) — retail for $57.90 each. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for special requirements.
