“OSRAM SYLVANIA is focused on providing innovative LED solutions that meet the needs of the commercial market,” said Alfred LaSpina, product group manager LED, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “The market wants LED lamps that look like traditional products, we deliver. Customers need high lumen output and exceptional beam quality from a PAR lamp, we deliver. Contractors need a dimmable, high output LED recessed downlight kit for either a retrofit or standalone application, or ENERGY STAR qualified products for applying for utility rebates, we deliver. Bottom line, OSRAM SYLVANIA delivers.”

SYLVANIA ULTRA HO PAR LED lamps deliver extremely high lumens (2400 lumens for PAR38 at 26W and 1600 lumens for PAR30LN at 20W) and outstanding color uniformity and beam quality by utilizing COB (chip on board) technology. Delivering high CBCP (center beam candlepower) performance, ULTRA HO PAR38 and ULTRA HO PAR30LN provide great replacement options for high power halogen and HID lamps. With a smooth heat-sink design, these UL wet-rated PAR38 lamps are available in 12° spot and 40° flood, and the PAR30LN lamps are available in 12° spot. Perfect for professional indoor and outdoor applications, the spot versions of lamps are suited for input voltage of either 120V or universal input voltage (120V or 277V).   

Focused on delivering LED solutions that have a similar look and shape of traditional lighting products, OSRAM SYLVANIA is unveiling SYLVANIA ULTRA Glass PAR LED Lamps. Available in PAR16, PAR20, PAR30LN and PAR38 versions, these long-life LED lamps have a glass body with full optic and keep the same look and feel of a traditional halogen PAR while achieving the advantages of LED. This makes them ideal for retrofit projects involving transition to more efficient LED technology while still maintaining a consistent look throughout the installation. The lamp family is UL Wet rated and can be can be used for indoor or outdoor applications. In addition, OSRAM SYLVANIA is unveiling its new SYLVANIA ULTRA A19, ULTRA G25 and ULTRA BR LED Lamps with a new design that mimics traditional incandescent lamps. The 2700K  ULTRA A19 LED lamps are fully dimmable, available in 40W, 60W, 75W and 100W equivalent versions, and are ENERGY STAR qualified.

Recognized in the 2014 IESNA Progress Report, the SYLVANIA ULTRA RT6 HO LED Recessed Downlight Kit is a universal input voltage 5" and 6" compatible solution that creates high performing white light and is optimized for new construction and retrofit applications utilizing pin-based compact fluorescent lamps. The RT6 HO downlight is now offered in a 0-10V dimmable 900 lumen version that utilizes 13W, in addition to the 1500 lumen option which achieves up to 71 lumens per watt. The new RT6 HO is available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K color temperatures. The RT6 HO is designed to deliver light output comparable to traditional 1x18W, 1x26W and 2x26W pin based compact fluorescent luminaires, and installation is done quickly and easily in most standard six-inch frames.  The SYLVANIA ULTRA RT6 HO, in addition to the new versions of the SYLVANIA ULTRA RT5/6 and ULTRA RT8 being shown at the booth, are UL1598 listed and classified for stand-alone and retrofit applications and ENERGY STAR qualified.

Additional OSRAM SYLVANIA products that are now ENERGY STAR qualified include:

  • SYLVANIA ULTRA PRO™ and ULTRA PRO HD™ LED Lamps with beam characteristics that closely match halogen PAR lamps with high center beam candlepower and soft edges,
  • The omnidirectional OSRAM ULTRA 3-Way A-Line LED Lamp, an equivalent to a 3-way incandescent 25/40/75W lamp but uses only 4W/7W/14W and delivers 300, 500 and 1100 lumens, and
  • the SYLVANIA ULTRA RT5/6 Gimbal LED Recessed Downlight Kit, which now has Universal 120/277V input and is CEC compliant, meeting California Title 24 fixture requirements for high efficacy luminaires.

New OSRAM SubstiTUBE IPS LED T8 Lamps are energy saving replacements for traditional fluorescent T8 lamps, reducing energy consumption by up to 35 percent. Suitable for dry and damp locations, these are ideal for cooler/freezer case, cove lighting, display case, parking garage, tunnels and general illumination applications. These shatterproof LED T8 lamps contain no mercury, and provide instant light and a uniform light distribution. Engineered to operate on existing instant start and now select programmed rapid start electronic T8 ballasts, these lamps minimize labor and recycling costs. They have a long 50,000 hour (L70) rated life, and are available in the new 4ft version, in addition to 3ft and 2ft lengths, and four color temperatures (3000K, 3500K, 4100K and 5000K). The new 4ft version offers expanded choice by also being offered in two lumen packages, 2200 lumens for no light compromise and 1600 lumens for more energy savings. Because the SubstiTUBE IPS LED T8 is not affected by switching cycles, the use of occupancy or vacancy sensors can be installed with the existing instant start ballasts for optimal energy savings. The DLC listed SubstiTUBE IPS LED T8 lamps have a 6 year limited system warranty when combined with a QHE ballast (16/7 operation).

Developed for indoor, such as high/low bay, and outdoor applications, such as decorative post-top, under-canopy and decorative acorn, the new SYLVANIA ULTRA HID Retrofit portfolio of LED solutions deliver 3000, 5000 and 8000 lumens using only 30W, 50W and 80W, compared to 100W, 150W and 250W HID equivalents. The products have Universal 120/277V input and are available in 3000K and 4000K color temperatures. The LED lamps are heat and impact resistant and UV protected, and have a non yellowing polycarbonate lens/reflector.  They are FCC/UL listed, humidity tested, shock/3G vibration resistant, built for extreme environments starting in temperatures as low as -40°F and rated up to 130°F ambient temperature within the fixture, and have built in 10kV surge protection.
