OSRAM SYLVANIA Introduces PENTRON® HO SuperSaver® Family

Energy-Saving Replacement for Full Wattage T5HO Lamps


Toronto, Ont. and Danvers, Mass. (October 4, 2011) – At the forefront of sustainable lighting innovation, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is pleased to expand its portfolio of SUPERSAVER® fluorescent lamps with the introduction of new PENTRON® and PENTRON® HO SUPERSAVER® ECOLOGIC® T5 types. The complete family now includes lamps that offer energy savings potential, while achieving the same long life and similar lumen output as full wattage lamps they are intended to replace.

Both families serve as replacements for nominal 4-foot, 3-foot and 2-foot lengths, respectively, and include color temperature options ranging from 2700K to 6500K, all with an excellent color rendering index CRI of 85. SYLVANIA PENTRON SUPERSAVER lamps are available in 26, 20, and 14 watt versions and PENTRON SUPERSAVER lamps are available in 50, 47, 35 and 21 watt types.
The addition of these new lengths provide energy saving options for all T5 and T5 HO luminaires. When paired with QUICKTRONIC® high efficiency PROStart® T5 and T5HO ballasts, the systems achieve up to 14 percent energy savings and are covered by the QUICK 60+® System Warranty.   These systems meet today’s increasing demands for energy efficiency, high lumen output, long life and improved color.  Building upon OSRAM SYLVANIA’s commitment to environmental sustainability, the lamps are TCLP Compliant and feature lead-free glass.  The ballasts have lead-free solder and are RoHS Compliant.
