New Dimmable BackLit LED Flat Panel Lights Offer Selectable Wattage & Color Temperature

Feb. 14, 2024

TORRANCE, Calif., Jan. 25, 2024 — Introducing a breakthrough in lighting technology: LEDtronics® unveils its cutting-edge series of Backlit LED Ceiling Panel Lights. These multi-mode, dimmable flat panels feature tunable wattage and white color temperature options.

The UL-listed panels feature continuous dimming, and directly replace fluorescent troffers in most standard recessed T-bar ceilings. In addition, the luminaire series can also be surface mounted with optional aluminum surface mounting frames, or ceiling-suspended with optional steel wire cables.

“This new backlit technology makes the flat panel much more efficient and gives it a longer life,” says LEDtronics president Pervaiz Lodhie. “It keeps it cooler with better heat dissipation, more stability of color, intensity and lumens.” The Torrance, California-based company recently celebrated its 40 years of LED lighting research, marketing and production.

Available in 2x2 and 2x4 ft sizes, the lightweight CLLxCTxDBL series of tunable LED flat panel lights are ideal replacements for fluorescent fixtures and tube lights in recessed luminaires. Their ultraslim profile fits seamlessly into standard dropped troffer and parabolic fixtures in most T-bar ceilings.

Offering the flexibility to customize wattage in 5 or 10 watt increments and adjust color temperature from 3000 Kelvin (warm white) to 5000K (pure white), these thin panels have the capability to provide the desired ambiance in a multitude of industrial or commercial spaces in offices, retail and convenience stores, hotels, resorts, conferences rooms, classrooms, and healthcare environments, among others.

The Title 24 compliant panels offer continuous dimmability with external 0-10V dimmers, with no flicker. They feature a white-trim plastic frame and a frosted white polystyrene diffuser plate that offers high light uniformity and transmission.

The 2x2 foot LED panel light offers variable wattage in 5W increments, from 20W to 35W, and programmable white color temperatures: 3000K, 3500K, 4000K or 5000K. The 2x4 foot LED panel light has a variable wattage of 30W, 40W or 50W, with a tunable choice of 3500K, 4000K or 5000K white colors.

They all operate within a voltage range of 120 to 277VAC, delivering a total light output ranging from 2603 lumens at 20 watts/3000K, to 6422 lumens at 50 watts/5000K. This translates to lighting efficacies averaging at 145 lumens per watt.

The luminaires offer energy savings of up to 75 percent over fluorescent fixtures and tubes. As an example, a LEDtronics 2x4 ft panel light at 50W/5000K replaces 75W T12CWFL; 85W T12 (800mA) FL; 59W and 65W-T8FL. Additionally, the minimal lamp heat output of LEDs over that produced by fluorescent tubes keeps temperatures in offices and hallways optimally lower, saving building air-conditioning costs. The LEDtronics panel lights boast a long lifespan, with lumen maintenance over 70 percent at more than 50,000 hours.

The solid-state design of the “CT” LED panel lights renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes, while their LM80-rated superbright SMD2835 LED chips provide high-lumen and greater than 80 CRI uniform illumination in a 120° wide beam, free of ultraviolet radiation or RF interference, low infrared, no glass, no lead or mercury.

The LEDtronics CLLxCTxDBL series of tunable and multimode LED flat panel lights come with an unconditional 5-year U.S. factory warranty, and they are available through LEDtronics distributors. Quantity discounts are available, and other product options, such as a 90-minute/10W emergency power pack or a 1x4 panel size, are available for qualified volume orders.
