OSRAM SYLVANIA Debuts Recessed LED Luminaires
New LED Luminaires Provide Bright and Efficient Quality Light in Office, Healthcare, Education and Retail Applications


Las Vegas and Danvers, Mass. (May 9, 2012) – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA today introduced a new offering of 2’x 2’ recessed LED luminaires designed to deliver high quality, efficient light, for a variety of commercial interior applications. The OSRAM 2’x2’ LED troffers offer a choice of energy-saving options for traditional fluorescent 2x2s while delivering comparable or superior light quality.  Demonstrating the OSRAM SYLVANIA dedication to the advancement of solid-state lighting (SSL) innovation, the 2x2 LED recessed luminaires are available in three styles; RLC22, RLP22 and the RLR LED 2x2 retrofit kit.


The OSRAM RLC22 architectural recessed 2x2 LED luminaires feature high performance of over 85 lumens per watt and a unique styling in the form of a round aperture, offering a pleasing aesthetic alternative to the “checkerboard” ceiling pattern created by standard recessed square fluorescent troffers. The luminaire’s diffuser is slightly recessed, producing a comfortable, non-glaring light, while delivering the right amount of illumination on work surfaces and walls. The innovative light engine is based on the OSRAM SYLVANIA Distributed Array LED platform, delivering excellent color consistency with a life rating @ 50,000 hours (L85). The long luminaire life and highly efficient LEDs provides the potential for energy savings and reduced maintenance costs when compared with comparable fluorescent systems. A 0-10V dimmable power supply comes standard with the RLC22 luminaire allowing for a continuous dimming range from 100-10%.


The OSRAM RLP22 Flat Lens LED 2’X2’ recessed troffers are particularly suited for new and retrofit projects that require high lumen output. With initial light output of up to 4450 lumens and lumen maintenance of 80,000 hours (L70), the RLP22 is a good choice for applications with high ceiling heights and maintenance costs or those requiring high illumination levels. The uniform luminaire brightness and carefully controlled amount of high angle light helps minimize shadowing and dark walls. The RLP22 is available in a choice of correlated color temperatures; 3500K, 4000K and 5000K with a CRI of 85. The luminaires may be dimmed continuously from 100-10% with standard 0-10V control interfaces.

LED 2x2 Retrofit Kit

The OSRAM LED 2’x2’ Retrofit Kit simply and quickly turns existing fluorescent recessed lensed and parabolic troffers into energy efficient, long life LED luminaires. Perfect to replace up to 3 lamp 2’x2’ long twin tube fluorescent fixtures, the kit provides a premium aesthetic with up to 40 percent energy savings. The LED 2x2 Retrofit Kit is designed to provide wide light distribution for an improved visual environment. The kit is UL1598 classified and installs quickly and easily from below the ceiling plenum. The LED 2x2 retrofit kit has an 50,000 (L70) life rating and includes a 0-10V dimmable power supply allowing for a continuous dimming range from 100-10%.

Utilizing state of the art LED technology and power supplies, the OSRAM 2x2 LED luminaires offer a variety of options designed to replace fluorescent systems while providing comparable or improved light quality. Continuous dimming capability facilitates compliance with applicable energy codes and offers the potential for even greater energy savings. The environmentally-preferable fixtures are also mercury and lead-free.
