GE new Biax 2D compact fluorescent lamps gives additional energy saving on standard control gear. 24W replaces 28W and 34W replaces 38W.
Lamp technology New 2D Watt-Miser lamps are energy saving compact fluorescent tubes formed into a “2D” shape. All types are available with a 4pin cap which permits use with conventional or electronic (high frequency) control gear, dimming and emergency lighting circuits.
The 28W types are also available with 2pin cap which contains a starter switch and an EMC (RIS) capacitor. All lamps use rare earth triphosphors to give high efficacy with good colour rendering properties.
In response to the demand from the market for a lower energy consumption GE has invented the extra energy saving 2D Watt-Miser.
These lamps are designed to retrofit, into existing fixtures, provide similar lamps performance but save energy at the same time.
Application areas • Residential
• Hotels / motels / restaurants
• Utility areas
• Task lighting
• Emergency lighting
The flat profile make the 2D an ideal choice for building into slim, attractive luminaries. Its two dimensional shape is suitable for both up lighting and downlighting applications, where directional lighting is required. Due to its shallow, broad configuration, it spreads light over a large area without the need for expensive optics.
Applications areas Biax 2D compact fluorescent lamps have been available for many years but GE is introducing the net generation of lamps under the name of 2D Watt-Miser. These are available in 28 and 38 Watt in a wide choice of colour temperatures, these lamps are a direct replacement to existing 2D fixtures delivering the same life of 15,000 hours but additional energy saving performance.
2D Watt-Miser lamps give similar lumen output the lamp they are replacing but up to 12% energy saving dependent upon ballast and wattage.
