Philadelphia and Danvers, Mass. – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is expanding the ULTRA SE™ LED Family of lamps with Sunset Effect™, incandescent-like dimming. Available in PAR38 with BR/R types coming this fall, SYLVANIA ULTRA SE LED lamps combine energy efficiency with the flexibility of customizing mood and ambience in any setting. The ULTRA SE family of 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.

It is well known that incandescent and halogen lamps decrease in color temperature as they are dimmed, creating not only lower light levels but also a warmer, more welcoming atmosphere often desired while entertaining, dining or relaxing. The color of the SYLVANIA ULTRA SE LED lamp family changes from 3000K to 2000K, similar to incandescent lamps, as they dim down to 10 percent of their initial output. This provides comfortable light ideal for hospitality, residential or healthcare settings where control over ambience is critical. It is now possible to have the benefits of energy efficient technologies without sacrificing the design aesthetics of incandescent light sources, evoking images of a setting sun or a glowing flame. Additional lamp types such as BR30, BR40 and R20 will be added to the ULTRA SE LED family later this year.

“Businesses in the hospitality industry are always interested in reducing energy but are also just as focused on creating a mood that entices repeat customers. Incandescent lamps have offered the desired warm color, but at the cost of higher electricity bills,” said Ellen Sizemore, product portfolio manager LED lamps, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “With the new ULTRA SE LED lamps, restaurants owners, for example, can now have the cozy atmosphere they desire and lower energy bills, thanks to our LED innovations.”

With a long rated lamp life of up to 25,000 hours (L70), SYLVANIA ULTRA SE LED lamps use up to 85 percent less energy than the incandescent lamps they replace, saving on energy and maintenance costs over the life of the lamp. ULTRA SE LED lamps are ideal for track, wall washing and recessed downlighting. Additionally, the lack of UV and IR radiation makes these lamps ideal for highlighting merchandise or artwork, as discoloration and fading of materials is minimized. SYLVANIA ULTRA SE LED lamps feature no warm-up time, instant-on with full light output and stable color. The products are environmentally preferred since the lamps are RoHS-compliant and contain no mercury, lead or other hazardous materials.
