EYE Lighting has announced that it is now even easier to replace an HID luminaire with advanced LED technology. The new EYELED Glass Jacket Series Mogul Base Retrofit Lamp is a fully self-contained LED Retrofit in a familiar HID glass lamp package.
The Glass Jacket Series was designed and is being assembled here in the US.
The EYE GJ Series screws directly into conventional and historically-styled post-tops, flood lights, wall packs, high bays, and other high output luminaires.
According to EYE Lighting VP of Sales & Marketing Greg Barry there are still about 120 million sockets in the US with HID lamps, so the opportunity to save energy and reduce operating costs is significant. “For decades EYE has been recognized for its superior quality HID lamps, and we are pleased to provide customers with an easy and economical way to switch to LED if they so choose,” Barry said.
He said Glass Jacket can be used in existing luminaires in most outdoor and many indoor applications. “It’s that familiar HID glass lamp appearance with its easy screw in, screw out base that will make this product so popular,” he added.
The Glass Jacket lamp is a patents pending glass lamp offering customers the latest in AC-Direct Driver On Board technology which optimizes thermal management and prevents discoloration common in competitors’ corncob-type LEDs. All models- 25W, 50W, 75W- deliver highly efficient light output in a light weight package. The lumens range is 3,000 to 10,000, and the Glass Jacket rated life is 50,000 hours. Warranty is 5 years, and it is UL Listed.
