R30 Floodlight Uses 80% Less Energy; Lasts 20 Times Longer Than Comparable Incandescent Bulb
MIAMI and DALLAS, June 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Celsia Technologies (OTC Bulletin Board: ICUR - News), a full solution provider and licensor of thermal management products and technology for the PC, consumer electronics, lighting and display industries, and Lighting Science Group Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: LSGP - News), a leading designer and marketer of super energy efficient LED lighting solutions based on its proprietary Optimized Digital Lighting(TM) (ODL®) technology, announced the availability of Lighting Science's LED R30 floodlight in cool white color, which contains Celsia's two- phase heat transfer technology. Lighting Science's latest innovative product was unveiled at Lightfair International 2006 in Las Vegas on May 31, which was attended by leading designers, manufacturers and customers of the lighting industry.
Lighting Science's LED R30 floodlight in cool white color provides the equivalent light output of a 60-65 watt incandescent bulb but uses 80% less energy over a lifetime that is up to 20 times longer. The LED R30 floodlight, which is dimmable produces 425 lumens while consuming only 10.5 watts and has a 50,000-hour life. The new floodlight, powered by Optimized Digital Lighting(TM) (ODL®) technology, is designed for both indoor and outdoor applications, and can be used in recessed cans and other fixtures that require a standard screw base reflector light bulb. The R30 floodlight is one of the most widely used bulbs today, typically found in large quantities in commercial, industrial, retail, educational and hospitality facilities. The cool white LED R30 is the first product to be marketed under the recently announced sales and development agreement between Celsia and Lighting Science.
Hakan Wretsell, Chief Executive Officer of Celsia Technologies, said, "The numbers speak for themselves. With our partner, Lighting Science Group, we are bringing to market the next generation in powerful, heat and energy efficient, long lifecycle lighting solutions. The commercial, industrial, retail, educational and hospitality applications are numerous and far reaching globally. Our technology goes through rigorous reliability testing, to ensure product performance and customer satisfaction. Given that this new bulb has a 50,000-hour life expectancy -- 20 times the normal incandescent bulb life -- our heat dissipation technology is instrumental. This is another very important milestone in our path to commercialization, and we expect many exciting products to be launched through this strategic partnership."
Ron Lusk, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lighting Science Group Corporation, commented, "Lighting Science is very pleased to introduce another important product to the market. The LED R30 floodlight is substantially more cost efficient, more energy efficient and longer lasting than comparable incandescent offerings on the market today. Celsia's innovative and flexible cooling solution was built into our existing product designs with relative ease, and we are pleased with the results of the various reliability and performance tests we performed prior to unveiling the product at Lightfair International. We are optimistic about our sales and development agreement with Celsia, as it allows us to further enhance our product offering in a practical and cost efficient manner."
