OSRAM SYLVANIA Archives 107 Lumens Per Watt in 100-Watt Incandescent Lamp Replacement

Advanced Technology of the ULTRA LED A19 Delivers 86 Percent Energy Savings Compared to Traditional Incandescent Lamp

Philadelphia and Danvers, Mass. (May 17, 2011) – OSRAM SYLVANIA today announced a laboratory achievement of 1,500 lumens for a 14-watt LED A-Line lamp. Designed as a replacement for the traditional 100-watt incandescent lamp, the ULTRA A19 is dimmable, offers a high color rendering index (CRI) and provides up to 86 percent energy savings when compared to the 100-watt incandescent.

The new 14-watt ULTRA LED A19 lamp prototype was developed by OSRAM’s solid state lighting (SSL) advanced engineering team in Regensburg, Germany. “We are delighted at this breakthrough achievement to develop a replacement for the 100-watt incandescent lamp with an incredibly high lumen per watt ratio, high color rendering and the ability to dim”, said Phil Rioux, general manager. “This accomplishment will allow SYLVANIA to round out their family of A19 LED lamps.”

The 14-watt SYLVANIA ULTRA LED A19 prototype is an industry breakthrough that delivers both energy and maintenance savings. With a rated life of 25,000 hours, the ULTRA A19 lamp helps save costs by reducing replacement cycles and energy consumption for the entire life of the product. With a color temperature of 2,700K and a CRI of 80+, the ULTRA A19 lamp is an ideal solution for table lamps, wall sconces and pendant lighting, and is suitable for residential, hospitality, healthcare and retail applications.

This prototype ULTRA High Performance Series LED A-Line 14W lamp is a testament to OSRAM SYLVANIA’s commitment to driving the market for LED solutions forward and providing sustainable and affordable lighting solutions.
