South Korea-based lighting manufacturer Kumho Electric, has unveiled the Earthcare Direct Replacement LED T8 environmentally friendly lamp.

The new design provides for full dimming control using a standard dimmable T8 ballast and incorporates environmentally friendly passive components that offer a reliable, longer lasting product.

Using one third less energy than a traditional linear T8, the lamp offers instant brightness, producing a 110 degrees beam that spreads illumination uniformly, without hot spots or glare.

The company said the new lamp maintains brightness over its 50,000 hour rated life with low lumen depreciation, and it operates at a moderate temperature, reducing load on building cooling systems.

The Earthcare T8 LED is well suited for refrigerator/freezer cases, high-vibration situations, and is available in 5000K, 4100K, and 3500K color temperatures.
