Expansion of GE LED Cove Lighting System Promotes More LED Conversions
"The use of GE LED lighting systems in coves has become an irresistible proposition for businesses," says Gus Lanese, manager of growth initiatives, GE Appliances & Lighting. "When you run lights continuously, you ought to be using reliable, long-life LED systems that don't run up the energy bill. Paybacks based on the cost of the product and comparative energy and maintenance costs will invariably show that the GE LED Cove lighting system is preferable to halogen systems."
Rated for 50,000 hours and capable of running continuously for more than five years, the GE LED Cove Lighting System incorporates the energy efficiency and long life of GE-quality LED technology. The GE LED Cove Lighting System now offers a 10-foot leader cable in addition to a 40-foot cable. The new shorter cable reduces wasted material and can reduce an end-user's cabling costs by as much as 33 percent in some applications. In addition to adding more lumens, the new 4100K GE LED Cove Lighting System now offers a 10-percent higher color-rendering index of 77. The system contains no lead, mercury or glass and is RoHS compliant.
Users of the GE LED Cove Lighting System can:
- Eliminate light-quality inconsistencies from incorrect color temperatures or differing brightness levels in replacement lamps;
- Avoid "socket shadows" thanks to a 120-degree uniform beam pattern that produces a bright and even warm-white light;
- Dim the lighting with an electronic low-voltage (ELV) reverse phase control dimmer; and
- Reduce the hassle and expense of labor, material and disposal costs associated with traditional lamp replacement.
Using GE LED lighting systems for cove lighting also allows customers to positively impact their company's brand image with better lighting consistency and control.
