T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps are triphosphor fluorescent lamps with 26mm outer diameter for indoor applications. These new lamps offer significant energy savings versus standard T8 linear fluorescent lamps.
T8 Watt-Miser lamps consume up to 10% less energy compared with today’s standard T8 lamps, while having 15,000 hours life on standard gear and excellent colour rendering index of CRI 85. Lamps are optimised for 30°C ambient temperature, offering up to 90lm/W luminous efficacy. The elevated optimum temperature results in additional energy saving versus standard T8 lamps in typical indoor lighting applications.
Standard T8 lamps can be easily replaced with the new T8 Watt-Miser lamps in the existing lighting applications, since new electronic control gears are not required. These new lamps from GE enable even less than 12 months payback time.
GE is committed to fight against climate change. The T8 Watt-Miser lamps will contribute to the global effort to reduce CO2 emission. One lamp can save up to 12.0 kg CO2 per year. So in addition to the lower energy bill, millions of tons of CO2 could potentially be saved with this new lamp technology.
T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps are mostly recommended for general indoor applications, such as:
GE T8 Watt-MiserTM lamps are available in 3 wattages: 16W, 32W and 51W. The available colour temperatures are:
• 3000K warm white
• 4000K cool white
• 6400K daylight
The T8 Watt-MiserTM linear fluorescent lamps comply with IEC/EN 60061 and IEC/EN 61195.
