Upgrading fixtures? There are several good ways to do it such as replace it, retrofit it, or just a lamp replacement. Which is best? That all depends on the fixture, style, shape, existing lamp, accessibility, budget, and lighting quality needed. Regarding just a lamp replacement a new family of Plug n Play lamps is now available.
Espen Technology just announced a new line of LED Type A PL lamps, that are part of the RetroflexTM family of Type A lamps (plug’n’play). Some Retroflex lamps can be powered by an existing electronic ballast, and others by an existing magnetic ballast. Initial inventory for the Type A PL lamps are in stock now.
According to John Clancy, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Espen, “Espen’s new Type A PL lamps allow end-users the reduced labor of plug & play solutions.” Clancy added, “We have LED PL lamps for either electronic or magnetic ballasts, as well as two form factors. Espen continues to expand one of the largest lines of LED commercial lamps in the industry.”
The Type A PL lamps are designed to replace compact fluorescent 4-pin and 2-pin lamps that are 18W, 26W, 32W, and 42W. Lamp output is 900 lumens for the magnetic ballast version, and 1,000 lumens for the electronic ballast version. The compact lamps are offered in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K, and 5000K CCTs. These lamps are UL rated, have a 50,000-hour average rated life, and a 5-year warranty.
