Osram Claims to Offer the First Full 60 Watt Incandescent Replacement LED Lamp on the Market

The Osram Parathom Classic A 60 with 12 Watt is the world's first LED lamp shaped like an incandescent lamp that fully replaces a conventional 60 Watt bulb – and at the same time cuts energy consumption by up to 90 percent. Innovatively designed, it is infinitely dimmable and has an average lamp life of 25,000 hours. It will be available from retail outlets at a price of around EUR 49.99 starting September 1.

Energy efficiency can also look good, as the Osram Parathom Classic A impressively proves. It not only fully replaces a conventional 60 Watt bulb but also looks much better, not to mention its true inner values, such as a power consumption of just 12 Watt, a light output of 640 lumen, a lamp life of up to 25,000 hours, energy efficiency class A and infinite dimmability. The lamp is compact and unbreakable, too, making it ideal for all conceivable uses around the home as well as in offices and hotels. And it is the first of its kind. Osram has once again set the standards for LED lamps. "The Parathom Classic A 60 from Osram is the perfect energy-efficient alternative to 60 Watt bulbs. This lamp finally heralds the triumphant arrival of LED technology in living rooms and offices," explains Christian Schraft, Head of Consumer Lighting at Osram. The new Parathom Classic A 80 with an even brighter luminous flux of 806 lumen will also be launched in autumn.

Osram Parathom product family - LED lamps in all shapes for all purposes:
In addition to products directly replacing the conventional bulbs with screw base, the Parathom product family from OSRAM also includes LED lamps to replace halogen lamps rated at up to 50 W with all the commonest bases. Even today, these lamps are an appropriate alternative for ceiling lamps, spotlights and highlights both at home and in professional applications.

The Parathom Deco series, on the other hand, add a touch of color. With their bright range of blue, green, red and yellow color or as a color-changing version, these LED lamps create exactly the right mood for parties, in the living room or for the next garden barbecue.

All Osram Parathom lamps have one thing in common: they require up to 90 percent less energy than conventional bulbs and do not contain any mercury whatsoever. Their light does not contain any UV or infrared rays. Since the lamp uses an electronic control gear, it must be disposed of professionally and free of charge via a recycling station at the end of its useful life.

LED lighting will be Trend of future. And that will be IBTs' long and lasting investment on the green technology.
IBTs have been devoting to high power LED lighting(streetlight and tunnel light) research,and overcome the bottleneck of thermal management to high power led lighting. The power range of led streetlight could be from 60W to 350W.
