Ledvance will be offering the largest LED retrofit portfolio from the Osram brand from October – many models have bulbs and casings made of real glass and are made in Germany
For the start of the lighting season, Ledvance, the former Osram Lamps business division, will be offering the largest Osram-brand LED lamp portfolio of all time. LED retrofits are becoming increasingly similar to their traditional models not only in terms of design, materials and dimensions but also with technical characteristics such as dimming behavior. As a consequence the LED spot portfolio and many other lamp shapes from Ledvance will now be available for the first time with casings and bulbs of real glass – the ideal alternative to classic halogen lamps. Around half the new products will be manufactured in Germany.
Right on time for the lighting season traditionally beginning in October, Ledvance will be offering a range of PAR16 and MR16 LED lamps among other products with casings made completely of glass, and most models are optionally dimmable. In many cases these products can simply replace those halogen lamps that are no longer permitted to be put into circulation in the EU from 1 September 2016. Thanks to glass casings they look deceptively similar to their traditional role models. The LED spots with up to 621 lumens are manufactured in Germany. The professional version features a very good color rendering index (CRI/RA) above 90 and up to 40,000 hours rated service life.
