Philadelphia and Danvers, Mass.– With continued focus on providing innovation to customers, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA has enhanced the light output and lumen maintenance of its proven family of ICETRON® ECOLOGIC® Inductively Coupled Electrodeless Fluorescent Systems. The SYLVANIA ICETRON lamp and QUICKTRONIC® ballast systems provide a cost effective, reliable solution for a range of indoor and outdoor applications including high bay, freezer, tunnel and street and area lighting. The improved ICETRON systems 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.

SYLVANIA ICETRON ECOLOGIC lamps are electrodeless and use magnetic induction technology to generate light. The absence of electrodes enables the ICETRON lamps to have an extra long rated lamp life of 100,000 hours (L75), five to ten times longer than the typical service life of conventional fluorescent and metal halide lamps. Available in 70W, 100W and 150W types, the improved ICETRON ECOLOGIC lamps feature a 20 percent increase in mean lumen output and up to 8 percent higher initial lumens. Now available in lumen packages ranging from 6,800 to 13,000 lumens, the SYLVANIA induction lamps also offer improved lumen maintenance as lamps are up to 30 percent brighter at 100,000 hours than previously rated.

“Our proven ICETRON systems have been helping our customers provide bright, high quality illumination for their parking lots, tunnels and warehouses while saving considerably on maintenance and relamping costs thanks to the extra long lamp life,” said Jodi Vallante, product marketing manager, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “With these latest improvements, our ICETRON systems will deliver higher illumination with better color consistency throughout the system’s life.”

ICETRON lamps are available in 3500K, 4100K and 5000K color temperatures with a premium phosphor blend that ensures color consistency throughout the life of the lamp. The SYLVANIA ICETRON ECOLOGIC Inductively Coupled Fluorescent lamps operate on OSRAM  QUICKTRONIC ICE ballasts andfeature instant-on/instant-restrike technology. The system is covered by the QUICK 60+® System Warranty for five years..
