PureSpectrum, Inc. (PureSpectrum) has finalized a manufacturing contract with Litetronics International, Inc. (Litetronics) that enable to launch its own compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) in 2009. This contract enables to combine PureSpectrum’s ballast circuitry and Litetronics’ lamp design. Litetronics will produce PureSpectrum's CFL bulbs to be distributed in US, Canada and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates beginning in the first quarter of 2009.
The combination will result in a cost effective, high performance dimmable CFL with performance properties that appeal to consumers.
PureSpectrum president and chief executive officer, Lee Vanatta said that an initial order was processed in conjunction with the execution of the contract and a portion of the first shipment will be used to receive approvals from standard setting agencies, Underwriters Laboratory (UL) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). PureSpectrum’s prototype bulbs have met or exceeded required performance measures in all critical categories, and Vanatta said product will be available in NAFTA countries in 2009.
Both the companies share a market-driven approach to the creation of new lighting technologies and products which are both energy efficient and consumer friendly. Litetronics has earned a reputation as a progressive developer of energy efficient products by capitalizing on emerging technologies to create products with high rates of consumer acceptance. PureSpectrum has generated a high level of interest and response within the lighting community through its unique approach to developing electronics and energy efficient lighting products.
The testing has proved that PureSpectrum’s technology provides a performance advantage over other dimmable CFL by enabling linear regressive dimming from 100% to 10% of perceived light output. The company’s dimmable CFL also contains far fewer components than conventional dimmable CFLs and allow the eventual retail cost to be substantially lower than any product currently on the market. All the company’s CFLs will be fully dimmable and compliant with established performance standards set forth by Energy Star, UL and FCC.
