Osram’s near-omnidirectional LED lamp to replace 75W incandescent lamp
According to the vendor, the Parathom Pro Classic A75 Advanced is the LED substitute for the ordinary 75-watt incandescent lamp. With a light output of 1055 lumens and a power consumption of just 14 watts, it surpasses the brightness of a 75-watt incandescent lamp and saves more than 80 percent energy in comparison at the same time. The light from the Classic A75 Advanced resembles that of an ordinary incandescent lamp. In addition, the new LED lamp is infinitely dimmable.
The design of the Parathom Pro Classic A75 permits a high light radiation angle of 340°. The LEDs are arranged on surfaces all around the lamp and hence no longer radiate their light in just one direction, but offer all-round illumination. The lamps will be available in specialist stores from the start of 2012 for a recommended retail price of around 50 euros. Thanks to the electricity saved, the acquisition costs pay for themselves after just 3 years.
The company also said that series production of the new design is also imminently planned for LED lamps with lower wattages. The Parathom Classic A60 will be going on sale in its new look from the start of next year, and the Parathom Classic A40 is expected to follow around the middle of the year.
