GK Lighting has introduced new high efficiency Retrofit LED Corn Lamps to its growing range of corn lamps products for the industrial and commercial markets. The company has launched its own version of the well-known lamp as a high performance solution for new or retrofit installations that can save businesses a significant amount of money.
Available in six outputs, the new range of LED Corn Lamps are a sustainable and cost-effective direct replacement for traditional halogen, incandescent and HID light sources across a vast range of applications. With a 360° light distribution the lamps are a particularly good addition to round reflector or wide-distribution luminaires, which can cut down the number of fixtures needed across a scheme.
Based on the traditional E37 or E40 fixtures, the new Retrofit Corn Lamps can be used for a straightforward lamp replacement without the need for a system or luminaire exchange to help keep the cost and time of an installation to a minimum.
Ranging from 12W to 120W, GK has created a Retrofit Corn Lamp that can be used for installations of all sizes, with light packages from 1,800 to 18,000 lumens to meet the level of light demanded by all commercial and industrial schemes. The versatility of the lamps is also achieved by the wide ambient temperature range from -20°C to +50°C which allows the product to be used in refrigerated areas, outside in sunlight, or facilities such as production factories that reach a high temperature.
The LED Corn Lamps have a high efficacy rate of 120 lumens per circuit watt and an A+ energy rating to ensure the new lighting is both energy and cost effective for businesses or facilities management. Compared with traditional incandescent lamps, the new Retrofit Corn Lamps can save up to 72% in energy consumption and CO2 emissions to reduce the impact on the environment.
The new lamps incorporate the very latest LED technology to provide high quality and reliable lighting for up to 50,000 hours. GK has developed the lamps to run at a cooler temperature to help the LEDs achieve this expected 50,000 hour life. This will also prevent the performance of the LEDs from deteriorating due to excess heat build-up within the fixture.
The long life of the LEDs ensures that the application requires minimal maintenance and eliminates the need for regular lamps replacements. This can save users up to 69% in operational costs a year, on top of the exceptional savings from the lower running costs to generate a quick payback of just one year. The reliability and performance of the lamps is supported by a five year warranty.
GK has developed the new Retrofit Corn Lamps to improve the light levels of an installation compared with traditional lamps. Incorporating hundreds of LED chips the light produced by the lamps is significantly brighter at a colour temperature of 6000K which produces a bright cool light similar to that of natural daylight. This allows a truer and sharper perception of objects and surroundings which is particularly ideal in warehousing, factory and floodlighting applications to improve the safety of the area. The LEDs have a short warm-up time of just two seconds to reach the full light levels immediately without any flickering or humming.
