Lunera Lighting Announces New Addition to Helen Lamp Family

October 13, 2015



Launches Plug-and-Play Replacement for 13W CFL – GX23 Base

Santa Clara, Calif., – October 13, 2015 – Lunera® Lighting, Inc., a leader in lighting
innovations accelerating the transformation to advanced LED technology, is pleased to
introduce the Helen Lamp GX23. Created as a plug-and-play replacement for a 13W CFL,
the Helen Lamp GX23 operates at a mere five-watts, reducing energy consumption by
more than 60%. The Helen Lamp GX23 is the first Lunera product that supports both
ballast driven and line voltage driven configurations as a single lamp, giving building
operators the flexibility they are looking for in deploying LED technology.
The Helen Lamp GX23 is not only a high performance HelenLamp
LED lamp; it is incredibly elegant in its design. “We really sweat the details. Our industrial design team created an amazing product that delivers a harmony of look, feel, and finish. When you hold the GX23 in your hand, you know it’s a product that was designed with a holistic intent,” said Lunera’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tom Quinn.

A key innovation of the Helen Lamp GX23 is that the product was designed using thermally conductive plastic instead of aluminum for the heat sink. This reduces both the weight and the cost of the product, while maintaining long-term reliability.

Lunera continues its rapid pace of innovation with this new addition to the Helen Lamp family. Designed for the ultimate in compatibility, the Helen Lamp GX23 offers universal
support for magnetic ballasts or the ballast can be bypassed and the dimmable lamp can be driven directly by 100V-305V, 50/60Hz AC line voltage. Compared to a standard two-pin, 13-watt CFL, the Helen Lamp GX23 uses five-watts of power, to generate 60% or more in lighting energy savings.

The Helen Lamp GX23 delivers up to 535 lumens of usable light and has a Color Rendering Index (CRI) of 82. It can be used in open or fully enclosed fixtures and offers four color temperature choices from 2700K to 4000K, to create the right ambiance for today’s variety of commercial lighting requirements.

The long lifespan of the Helen Lamp GX23 is rated at 50,000 hours to L70, five times
longer than comparable CFLs. The lamp is supported by a five-year warranty and is now
available for purchase.
