Chino, Calif. American Bright Lighting announced its new patent pending, second-generation SimpleTube LED replacement lamps capable of replacing inefficient T-8 fluorescent tubes in large-scale retail refrigerators and freezers. The Improved series offers up to 79% power savings over the commonly used fluorescent tube ballast combinations and, due to lower heat emissions, reduces strain and demand on refrigeration compressors and controls. The series is the industry’s most efficient, consuming as much as 50% less power than comparable LED units from other manufacturers. Additional benefits of the second-generation SimpleTube lamps are longer lifetimes, lower maintenance costs, comprehensive five-year warranty, and significantly better lumen maintenance over the service life.
American Bright Lighting has also introduced a total harmonic distortion correction version that complies with emerging regulations and proposed Department of Energy specifications. This patent-pending feature assures end users of compliance with existing and future regulations regarding the use of AC based LED systems. AC bases LED systems eliminate the need for AC-to-DC power-conversion and secondary driver systems that historically are the “weak link” in other solid-state lighting solutions.
Unlike fluorescent lamps, which contain significant amounts of mercury and in various areas must be disposed of as hazardous waste via a fluorescent recycling firm, SimpleTube lamps are 100% RoHS compliant, meeting the most stringent global standards for toxin-free materials and manufacturing processes.
