LED Waves is proud to introduce the Genesys 3.0: an extremely bright LED replacement for 4-foot fluorescent T8 tube lights. It is built in the small company's Brooklyn facility, using the latest developments in solid state research and development. T8s are the lighting solution of choice for efficient homes and workplaces, but the technology is associated with audible buzzing; ghastly, unflattering color; and the tendency to flicker and lose considerable brightness over a short period of time.
The Genesys 3.0 LED T8 replacement bucks the trend with its clean, consistent, and overall pleasant quality of light. It's more environmentally friendly than fluorescent tubes, which are fragile and contain trace amounts of mercury. Housed in shatterproof aluminum and PVC, with no hazardous materials inside, the Genesys 3.0 is as gentle on the environment as it is on the eyes.
Earlier models of LED T8 tubes have disappointed with low lumen output and pixellation. The Genesys 3.0 is densely packed with 96 Cree XLamp ML-E chips to provide high brightness - over 2,500 lumens - with smooth, even light distribution. Designed for enhanced visibility, the ML-E gives our LED T8 a Color Rendering Index over 85. This makes the Genesys 3.0 ideal for high-traffic work spaces, restaurants, retail environments, and any other application that calls for superior quality of light.
Each 48" tube features a unique reflector positioned overhead to maximize light output and direct it exactly where it's needed. In fact, the Genesys 3.0 LED T8 emits so much more useful light, one unit can replace two fluorescent tubes!
The Genesys 3.0 comes bundled with an LED driver for easy installation. The fluorescent ballast may be either bypassed or removed entirely. LED Waves' engineers have configured the driver to lower the ambient fixture temperature from 85°C to 45°C. As all electronics thrive in lower temperatures, this measure prolongs the lifespan of the LEDs. The Genesys 3.0 has a projected lifespan of more than 50,000 hours.
This T8 replacement tube is the newest product in the New York company's exclusive OEM line of energy-saving lamps made in the USA. The rest of the product line includes a 12 volt MR16 LED light bulb; an industrial LED high bay luminaire; an LED recessed down light fixture; and LED PAR20, PAR30 and PAR38 light bulbs. Each lamp features name brand LEDs from Cree (optimal model determined by application) and is covered by the company's 5 year warranty.
