Taipei City, Taiwan, May 20, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- GlacialTech Inc., is launching the T8 low-power Light Emitting Diode (LED) lighting tubes under the GlacialLight brand. The T8 LED tubes are an improvement as well as innovation of the existing models. The unique advantage is that the tubes are extremely low in power consumption with under 10W for a 2ft tube, and under 20W for a 4ft tube. The T8 identically suits a G13 socket as well as individually supports four AC input voltage specs, including 100-110V, 120V, 220-240V and 277V.
The T8 features an inbuilt Over Temperature Protection (OTP) that automatically shuts down the tube at a relatively high temperature as well as starting up the tube at a relatively low temperature. When the input voltage does not fall within its specified range, the OTP shall be triggered. Moreover, the T8 LED tubes are designed to replace the equivalent Cathode Fluorescent Tubes (CFT) currently available in markets. Using a relatively lower wattage, the T8 has the same structure and style of traditional CFTs but delivers a brighter performance per watt, with less heat radiation and fewer pitfalls experienced by the traditional CFTs.
It is worth to mention that the patented LED driver built in the T8 tubes is one of GlacialTech's eco-friendly inventions. Unlike the conventional drivers emitting Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI, also called Radio Frequency Interference or RFI) via either electromagnetic conduction or electromagnetic radiation, GlacialTech's innovative LED driver does not interfere the effective performance of noise-sensitive electronic devices such as television sets, cell phones, AM/FM radios, medical instruments, military equipments and such.
There are no toxic gasses existing in the T8 design, and the tubes are much more robust and weatherproof. The T8 LED tubes can be used for daily basis on indoor applications, and have incorporated all the latest luminary technologies garnered from GlacialTech's unique resources that combined years of experience in cooling systems design as well as all manners of consumer electronic device power supplies.
GlacialTech uses extremely high quality components designed for high brightness and long life span (min. 20,000hrs). The lumens start at over 500lm at a flux of 52-58 lm/W with 130-206 lux at 1 meter on the short 2ft version, whereas the longer 4ft version has over 1000lm also at 54-64lm/W with 212-377 lux at 1 meter. The net weight varies from 0.15kg's to 0.30kg's. These products are designed to fit into standard G13 socket assemblies, and thus replace traditional tubes without any inconvenience to the users.
GlacialLight, a new sub-brand of GlacialTech, leverages GlacialTech's resources to provide better and higher quality products than its competitors using high quality heatsinks, specialized power units and Light Emitting Diode (LED) luminaries, giving users a longer product life >20,000hrs with higher lumen throughout the product lifecycle.
Outstanding LED lighting products you can count on
The integrated design of LED lighting products is based on three core technologies, including electrical design (LED drivers), mechanical design (cooling devices), and optical design (lamp holders), respectively performed by GlacialPower, GlacialTech, and GlacialLight, three members in the GlacialTech family. Mastering the three core technologies in the hand, GlacialTech has integrated all the resources required for exceptional designs and manufactures outstanding LED lighting products you can count on.
Advantages and benefits of LED lighting compared to traditional lighting
* Directional lighting: ideal for flashlights/torches and spotlights
* No warm-up time in cold environments: LEDs don’t require warm-up time like conventional CFLs
* No harmful radiation and no hazardous metals: LEDs don’t emit harmful radiation such as Ultraviolet or Infrared emitting halogen lamps and don’t contain hazardous metals such as mercury contained in mercury lamps
* Extremely long lifetimes: to free users from frequent bulb maintenance/replacement GlacialLight’s LED products achieve considerable power savings for its owners while extending long life cycles under normal conditions.
* Extremely small carbon footprints: an environmentally-friendly technology
