LEDtronics - Halogen ReplacementLEDtronics has announces a series of T5 tube-style LED lamps as direct replacement for 12V xenon and halogen T3/T4 subminiature glass bulbs from 4 to 15 watts, including Xenon 1205X (5W) and Halogen lamps 774 (8W), 891 (8W, 12.8V) and 773 (8W).

The LEDtronics LEDG4BP-2W series of lamps work with high-frequency power supplies for 12VDC or 12VAC, and consume only 0.8 watts at 12VAC, and 1.4 watts at 12VDC voltage input — this adds up to 90% reduction in power consumption.

These subminiature lamps come with a dual-pin G4 base and are available in 3000K warm white or 5500K pure white light colors. They are a perfect fit in applications such as pendant lamps, under-cabinet lighting, landscape lighting, electric signs, scoreboards, step lights, puck downlights, RVs, boats, car bulbs, ceiling fans and anywhere T3 or T4 halogen bulbs are used. A removable 5.2mm lead spacer is included.

The solid-state design of the LEDG4BP-2W Series LED lamps renders them impervious to electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. They boast faster turn-on and reaction time compared to halogen lamps yet provide comparable luminous intensity and pure wavelength light for a more uniform illumination without halation. Featuring an omnidirectional beam pattern, in typical applications they provide sharper, higher intensity illumination and better visibility than standard lamps and achieve full brightness more rapidly.

The lamps are rated at 50,000 hours MTBF for white LED light, and their aluminum housing helps dissipate heat, keeping them cool. Their long life and reliability in a wide range of operating temperatures lower costs by reducing re-lamp frequency, while their cool operation translates into less load on air conditioning.

The LEDtronics LEDG4BP-2W Series of lamps are environment-friendly—they contain neither mercury nor lead and are ROHS compliant.

Priced at $18.75 each in the two-piece quantity, the LEDG4BP-2W-XIW-012V (3000K warm white) and LEDG4BP-2W-XPW-012V (5500K pure white) series is available in production quantities in 3 to 5 days, with samples and/or prototype quantities available to qualified customers in 1 week. They come with a 2-year warranty.
