Las Vegas and Danvers, Mass. (June 3, 2014) – At LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®) 2014, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is launching its SYLVANIA ULTRA PRO™ and ULTRA PRO HD™ PAR LED Lamp Family with extremely energy-efficient professional PAR20, PAR30, PAR30LN and PAR38 LED lamps with beam characteristics that closely match halogen PAR lamps with high center beam candlepower and soft edges.  The company is also unveiling its higher efficacy standard commercial grade ULTRA PAR LED Lamp Family with PAR20, PAR30LN and PAR38 LED lamps, including wet-rated PAR38 lamps, all with sharper beam cut-off. 

The new ULTRA PRO, ULTRA PRO HD and ULTRA PAR LED families replace 50W, 75W and 90W halogen lamps, and have a sleek lightweight design and long 25,000 hours rated life (L70) with a design life of 40,000 hours which translates into lower maintenance costs.  They are ideal for track, downlighting, accent and general lighting solutions in retail, hospitality, museum, office and residential applications, and the new wet-rated ULTRA PAR38 LED lamp is ideal for outdoor security lighting. 

The company is showcasing its new ULTRA PRO, ULTRA PRO HD and ULTRA PAR LED lamps at Booth #3108 at LFI 2014, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.  LFI 2014 is sponsored by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD).  OSRAM SYLVANIA has been supporting LFI since its inception 25 years ago, bringing fully integrated lighting products and services that take lighting designers, end users, luminaire manufacturers and service providers beyond the boundaries of conventional lighting.  

“Our new SYLVANIA ULTRA PRO and ULTRA PRO HD LED Lamps are game changers in the industry.  Retailers like the appearance of the light provided by halogen but want the energy and maintenance savings from LED, and we have combined the best of both worlds,” said Ellen Sizemore, product portfolio manager LED lamps, OSRAM SYLVANIA.  “Our new ULTRA PRO LED lamps have a new modern design with a sleek lightweight heat sink and a lens designed to produce the premium beam performance for which our CAPSYLITE® halogen PAR lamps are known.  Not only have we reproduced the center beam intensity at a given beam angle, but the field performance has been replicated as well, resulting in softer edges for improved blending.  They also offer superior light quality for color critical applications and have a high efficacy of up to 86 lumens per watt.”

SYLVANIA ULTRA PRO and ULTRA PRO HD PAR LED lamps, available in 7W (PAR20), 10W (PAR30), 13W (PAR30LN) and 17W (PAR38), provide superior beam characteristics compared to other LED lamps.  For example, as with halogen, the high center beam candlepower can put the focus on important merchandise or artwork, and the soft spill can further enhance the display.  These high power factor LED lamps are dimmable down to 5% and deliver up to 86% energy savings over the halogen lamps they replace.  Lamps are available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K correlated color temperatures (CCT) with two color rendering index (CRI) options: standard 82 CRI for very good color rendering and HD performance with 92 CRI for color critical applications with exceptionally rich deep red content (R9>50), ideal for retail and museum accent lighting, as well as healthcare and warm hospitality settings.  With a broad assortment of beam angle options, including spot (12°), wide spot (15°), narrow flood (25°) and flood (40°), specifiers can turn to this new LED lamp family for a wide assortment of general illumination and accent lighting needs.   

SYLVANIA ULTRA PAR LED lamps are quality high power factor lamps, ideal for basic general illumination and accent lighting.  Product offering includes damp-rated 8W PAR20, 13W PAR30LN and 16W PAR38, plus 17W wet-rated PAR38 LED lamps.  They deliver 500 to 1050 lumens, have a high efficacy (up to 65 lumens per watt), provide up to 84% energy savings and are dimmable down to 10%.  Options include narrow flood (25º) and flood (40º) beam angles and 2700K, 3000K and 5000K CCT.  The high output 17W ULTRA PAR38 lamp is a suitable replacement for 120W halogen, delivering 2000 lumens, and is available in narrow flood (25º) and flood (40º) in 3000K CCT.
