​Philadelphia and Danvers, Mass. – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA has expanded the SYLVANIA ULTRA iQ™ family of LED lamps with integrated wireless dimming control. First to market with BR30 LED lamps with built-in intelligence, the technology is now offered in the ULTRA RT6 downlight kit. The SYLVANIA ULTRA iQ LED products are ideal replacements for 65W incandescent BR30 lamps in recessed downlighting applications. The ULTRA iQ LED lamps and other innovative lighting technologies from OSRAM SYLVANIA will be shown at Booth #1001 at LIGHTFAIR International 2013, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.

The integrated wireless dimming control built into SYLVANIA ULTRA iQ LED lamps allows users to manage light levels by using wireless remotes, smart phones and tablets as well as motion and photo sensors. External incandescent dimmers are not required, eliminating concerns with dimmer compatibility and additional wiring. Multiple lamps can be controlled wirelessly to adjust light levels quickly and intuitively, tailoring the light for a given task, or to simply create a warm and inviting room by dimming down the lights for ambiance.

“Our SYLVANIA ULTRA iQ LED Lamps offer effortless intelligent lighting and help our customers get over backwards compatibility with dimmers, which is a major hurdle for LED retrofits,” said Ellen Sizemore, product portfolio manager LED lamps, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “By providing powerful, mobile control and connectivity features, we are providing next generation lighting.”

The 11W ULTRA iQ BR30 LED lamp has a rated lamp life of 25,000 hours (L70) and emits 650 lumens of warm, white 2700K color temperature light with a color rendering index (CRI) of 80. With a rated lamp life of 35,000 hours (L70), the 11W ULTRA iQ RT6 LED downlight kit features an aesthetically appealing design and emits 700 lumens of soft, diffuse light at a color temperature of 3000K and 80 CRI. Both ULTRA iQ LED lamps are dimmable to 5 percent and can help use 80 percent less energy than the incandescent lamps they replace.
