American Bright Intros 2G Solid-State Lamps
LED replacements for fluorescent tubes.
Chino, CA — American Bright Lighting, Inc. has introduced its patent-pending, second-generation SimpleTube LED replacement lamps capable of replacing inefficient T-8 fluorescent tubes in large-scale retail refrigerators and freezers. The improved series offers up to 79 percent power savings over the commonly used fluorescent tube ballast combinations and, due to lower heat emissions, reduces strain and demand on refrigeration compressors and controls.

The solid-state lighting is said to be the industry's most efficient, consuming as much as 50 percent less power than comparable LED units from other manufacturers. Additional benefits of the second-generation SimpleTube lamps include longer lifetimes, lower maintenance costs, comprehensive five-year warranty, and significantly better lumen maintenance over the service life. Independent laboratory testing performed to LM79 confirms up to 61 lumens per watt. The total efficacy of the new lighting is nearly twice the efficacy of the other solid-state lighting products commercially available for similar applications. The product is UL listed, and is offered in ANSI color bins. According to the company, the color quality and consistency enhance product appearance and will not degrade appreciably over the 50,000+ hour projected life of the product. The simple tube is available with a number of output angles and lens options, both clear and frosted.

The company has also introduced a THD (total harmonic distortion) correction version that complies with emerging regulations and proposed Department of Energy (DOE) specifications. This patent-pending feature assures end users of compliance with existing and future regulations for the use of AC-based LED systems. AC-based LED systems eliminate the need for AC-to-DC power conversion and secondary driver systems that historically are the weak link in other solid-state lighting solutions.
