TCP Launches New LED Lamps
AURORA, Ohio, May 24, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- TCP, the leader in energy efficient lighting technology is introducing a LED lamp series of products that feature a powerful combination of category-leading performance, function, and value. These exciting new products further enhance TCP's already comprehensive line-up of energy efficient lighting for commercial, institutional, retail, hospitality and educational applications.
n:fusion™, TCP's newest LED lamps provide the industry's best directional light output performance, by combining cutting-edge ballast technology, optical design and manufacturing capability, plus the world's leading LED driver componentry, making them excellent alternatives to traditional PAR halogens. n:fusion LED's utilize an aesthetically pleasing aluminum housing which also provides excellent heat dissipation and high efficiency. Plus, n:fusion uses 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 effect.
TCP's new n:fusion LED lamps include PAR20, PAR30, PAR38 applications, and are all available in either narrow flood (25 degree) and flood (40 degree) beam spreads. These lamps are perfect for a wide variety of general lighting applications including track and recessed lighting. All of TCP's new LED lamps dim uniformly down to 0%, with no color-shifting, hum or annoying "flicker". Also, the center-beam candlepower (CBCP) performance exceeds halogen and LED competition for similar beam angles, while providing very uniform beam patterns. And to ensure consistency within installations, TCP utilizes a 3-step color binning process, which provides uniform color from lamp to lamp while maintaining efficacy levels of more than 60 lumens-per-watt. These new LED lamps exceed the ENERGY STAR lumen requirements for 90W PAR38, 75W PAR30, and 45W PAR20 applications.
TCP has also added 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 spread options, these products are perfect for small fixtures, pendant lights and display lighting applications.
"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 Crowcroft, Vice President of Marketing at TCP.
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. They 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/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™ . TCP's extensive product line includes compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs), LED lamps and fixtures, halogen lamps, cold cathode lamps, exit and emergency lighting, HID, decorative and outdoor fixtures, as well as a linear fixtures, lamps, and ballast offerings. TCP is a privately held company employing more than 200 people in Northeast Ohio. For more information, visit us at www.tcpi.com or call (800) 324-1496.
