2800K Led Festoon Lamps

Sep 4, 2008
Phantom Lighting Systems has now introduced 2800K LED festoon lamps to the market. This is a significant development in our LED accent lighting technology which brings LED festoon lamps closer than ever to the warm color temperatures standard to incandescent light bulbs and to which we have all become accustomed. In fact, the color rendering index of these new festoon lamps brings lighting quality very close to that of xenon, which has historically been our most popular lamping option for cabinet lighting and LED strip lighting.

The significance of this new development will have far reaching implications for LED lighting in general in the future. To understand these implications, it is necessary to understand the basics of color temperature as it pertains to lighting. The term was originally used to describe the "whiteness" of incandescent light and related directly to the temperature of the tungsten filament used in bulbs. Confusingly to some, the lower the number in degrees Kelvin is, the "warmer" the color temperature of a light source is said to be. This is because higher temperatures (in terms of degrees Kelvin), tend to shift toward the blue end of the spectrum. A light source with a color temperature of 2800K-3200K is ideal for lighting vivid, "warm" colors like red, orange, and yellow that appear to advance toward the eye. The major drawback to previous generations of led lamps was their inability to accurately render these colors. LED white light were actually generated mixing combinations of blue and yellow, which tended to shift their color temperature higher toward the cool colors like blue and purple that have a more soothing appearance. This made it difficult to use LED light bulbs as sources in rooms where people were used to seeing a close approximation to daylight which incandescent lights were known for.

All of this is changing as both LED lamp technology and festoon lamp technology continues to advance in sophistication and diversify in application. These changes come just in time for businesses and homes in California which are now required by law to replace incandescent bulbs of all types no later than 2010. Since xenon is a high-end form of incandescent light, architects, builders, and lighting designers have been hard pressed to come up with a viable replacement for xenon lamps in linear strips and cove lights. They have long known the power saving and extended life advantages of LED festoon lamps, but have hesitated to recommend diode-based lighting because of its heretofore inability to completely mimic incandescent light. Phantom 2800K LED festoons are changing all of that now, with some additional selling points to make the contractor's proposal more cost effective and energy conscious at the same time.

2800K LED Festoon lamps operate on 12 volt AC magnetic transformer, not DC.

This makes them compatible with standard wiring systems. For builders, this is a very important time saver. Linear strips can be installed directly into cabinets, shelves, book cases, and display cases and linked directly to a home or business's power source without the need for an AC/DC converter. This cabinet lighting installation quicker and easier, and it results in a more concealable light strip than can do a better job than competing models with less physical equipment.

The LED Life rating is 50,000 hours at 1.7W vs. 20,000 hours at 5W for Xenon.

Clients of lighting designers will be happy to hear that their new investment is expected to last more than twice the amount of time as their xenon linear lights will perform, and will outperform fluorescent strip lights with a more natural rendition of the full color spectrum.

Negligible forward throw heat, due to proprietary design of backside heat sink.

The unique design and placement of our heat sink provides optimal thermal management and makes the 2800K festoon led lamp ideal for lighting displays containing antiques, rare merchandise, or sensitive documents.

Fully Dimmable without color shift using conventional low voltage dimmers.

This is perhaps the LED festoon lamps strongest selling point with end users. Homeowners and retailers can easily adjust lighting levels themselves at will at any time.

2800K LED Festoon lamps are backward compatible with previous generations of linear strips.

It is not necessary to throw away old linear strip lights. Simply snap out the old lamps and replace them with new energy efficient LED festoon lamps.
