LEDnovation Introduces New Bright For Life® LED PAR30 For Ceramic Metal Halide Replacement

Share Article

The first LED lamp family to effectively replace traditional ceramic metal halide (CMH) and solve lumen depreciation and service life issues typically associated with CMH


LEDnovation, a leading innovator in LED lighting and replacement lamp technology, today introduced a revolutionary new LED lamp family aimed at replacing ceramic metal-halide (CMH) PAR30 lamps. The LEDnovation lamps solve both lumen depreciation and service life while delivering a 40% energy savings over CMH lamp and ballast.

The LEDnovation Bright For Life® LED PAR30-CMH lamps work in standard fixtures with E26 medium bases and do not require an external ballasted power source, a common point of failure of CMH solutions. The new Bright For Life® LED PAR30-CMH family is a big step in LED lamps; a unique, actively cooled solution that lasts 50,000 hours, or 5 times the typical CMH lifetime of 10,000 hours. The cost of changing lamps is greatly minimized with the LEDnovation lamps since typically CMH have a 20% premature failure rate at just 7,800 hours of life. As for lumen depreciation, LEDnovation LED PAR30-CMH replacement lamps are 16% brighter after 3000 hours of use and over 27% brighter after 6,000 hours of use compared to equivalent CMH lamps.

Designed to very closely emulate the look and feel of traditional CMH lamps, the LEDnovation LED solution does so without the use of harmful Mercury. Delivering the lumen equivalent of a 39 watt ceramic metal-halide bulb with color temperature of 3000K, the Bright For Life® LED PAR30-CMH family will be available in spot, narrow flood and flood beam angle configurations. It is perfect for retrofit and new installations in retail and commercial applications where powerful, crisp white light is traditionally achieved by ceramic metal-halide light sources.
