Philadelphia and Danvers, Mass.– North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is pleased to announce that the SYLVANIA OCTRON® 800 XP® XL (eXtended Life) ECOLOGIC®3 T8 Fluorescent Lamp is the recipient of an Innovation Award at LIGHTFAIR® International 2013. The innovative lamp won the Conventional, Retrofit and Replacement LED Lamps category. The award reinforces the company’s commitment to leading the market in the development and delivery of cutting edge lighting technologies.

The SYLVANIA OCTRON 800 XP XL (eXtended Life) ECOLOGIC3 T8 Fluorescent Lamp life has been improved by 44 percent, providing the longest T8 lamp life in the industry on T8 ANSI rated ballasts – up to 84,000 hours. This life increase reflects up to 2.7 times longer life than standard T8 systems. Available in 32-watt and reduced wattage 28-watt and 25-watt SUPERSAVER® and designed with lead-free glass, OCTRON 800 XP XL lamps are ideal for education, healthcare, industrial, office and retail settings in recessed troffer, wall-washing, stairways, direct and indirect pendant and linear recessed applications. 

“OSRAM SYLVANIA is providing lighting products that lead the industry as demonstrated by this award,” said Jennifer Habel, fluorescent product marketing manager, OSRAM SYLVANIA.  “Being recognized for the fourth year in a row by our industry peers is a testament to our innovative products. The extended lamp life of our OCTRON XP/XL solution will help businesses and facilities save money on maintenance costs, and deliver the high quality illumination and stable lumen maintenance specifiers expect from OSRAM SYLVANIA.” 

For maximum energy savings, lighting designers and specifiers can couple this lamp with the high-efficiency QUICKTRONIC® ballast and use POWERSENSE® dimming for even more energy savings. When paired with high efficiency QUICKTRONIC electronic T8 ballasts (QHE), energy savings up to 40 percent over magnetic 34WT12 SS systems and up to 20 percent over standard T8 systems are possible. The OCTRON XP XL lamp and SYLVANIA ballast system is covered by the company’s industry leading 5-year QUICK 60+® warranty.

In addition to the OCTRON 800 XP XL SUPERSAVER T8 Fluorescent Lamp being honored, three other OSRAM SYLVANIA products were finalists in their categories, including SYLVANIA LUMALUX PLUS® XL ECOLOGIC HPS Lamps, the new OPTOTRONIC® 40W Programmable Constant Current LED Power Supply, and the OSRAM KREIOS® FLx fixture, an LED flood light fixture for indoor and outdoor use.

The LIGHTFAIR Innovation Awards recognize excellence in new lighting products and technology introduced in the past twelve months. Judged by an independent panel of renowned lighting professionals, the LIGHTFAIR Innovation Awards is one of the highest industry honors.
