AURORA, Ohio, May 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TCP is expanding their residential LED lamp series with products that feature a powerful combination of category-leading performance, functionality, and value. These exciting new products further enhance TCP's already comprehensive line-up of energy efficient lighting and help lead the way to a smooth transition away from inefficient incandescent light bulbs, with the advent of the new 2012 E.I.S.A. regulations.
By combining TCP's cutting-edge ballast design technology, optical design and manufacturing capability - plus the world's leading LED chip components, TCP's newest LED lamps provide the industry's best directional light output performance, making them excellent alternatives to traditional PAR halogens. All of TCP's new LED lamps dim uniformly down to 0%, with no color-shifting effects, hum or annoying "flicker". TCP LED lamps also use the highest-quality lamp optics, which are computer designed and precision manufactured for perfect directional light beam control, with no annoying "hot spots" or beam washout effects.
"Our strategy is to introduce high performance LED lamps that will meet or exceed the US EPA's ENERGY STAR® specifications at a value price. As the leader in energy efficient lighting, TCP is committed to providing a robust, high quality LED lighting product offering," said Jim Connolly, TCP's Senior Vice President of Retail Sales.
TCP's new LED lamps include directional lighting applications, including PAR20, PAR30, PAR38 lamps, all available in either narrow flood (25 degree) and flood (40 degree) beam spreads. These lamps exceed the latest ENERGY STAR LED lamp lumen requirements, and outperform comparable halogen directional lamps. These lamps are perfect for a wide variety of general lighting applications including track and recessed lighting.
TCP has also added several specialty LED MR16 spot and flood lamps, which feature excellent lumen output, long life and cooler operating performance. Available in 4.4 watt rating with 15-degree and 30-degree beam options, these products are perfect for small fixtures, pendant lights and display lighting applications.
TCP is also expanding its previously released line of LEDs including torpedo (clear and crystal cut), flame, globes, and A-lamps, now available in both clear and frosted versions. These fully-dimmable lamps feature a 360-degree filament-style light output, which gives the lamp brilliant light output. These lamps are perfect energy efficient replacements for halogen and incandescent lamps in many specialty installations, such as accent and decorative lighting, chandeliers, ceiling fans, and indoor and outdoor fixtures.
TCP is the global leader in energy efficient lighting innovations dedicated to creating high-quality products that are brighter, longer lasting and better for the environment. From its U.S. headquarters outside Cleveland, Ohio, the company markets a variety of energy efficient lighting products for professional, specifier and consumer markets under several brands including TCP, TCP Pro, SpringLight™, DuraBright™ Lightstyles™, and TCP EcoVations™ .
