American Bright Lighting releases Slimm Series SimpleTube® retail freezer case lighting system with patented direct drive technology.
Chino, California April 13, 2015 – American Bright Lighting, Inc. today announced its new patented, third-generation Slimm Series SimpleTube® LED replacement lamps capable of replacing inefficient T-8 fluorescent tubes in large-scale retail refrigerators and freezers. American Bright's SimpleTube® Slimm Series represents the most elegant solution for refrigerator and freezer display lighting available on the market today. This innovative and Earth-friendly lighting solution outperforms the competition on all fronts: lower energy costs, higher quality light and virtually maintenance free. Available in industry standard, product friendly color temperatures and lengths to meet the needs of all existing display cases.
The Improved series offers up to 80% power savings over the commonly used fluorescent tube ballast combinations and, due to lower heat emissions, reduces strain and demand on refrigeration compressors and controls. The series is the industry’s most efficient, consuming as much as 50% less power than comparable LED units from other manufacturers. Additional benefits of the new generation SimpleTube lamps are longer lifetimes, lower maintenance costs, comprehensive six-year warranty, and significantly better lumen maintenance over the service life.
The Slimm Series incorporates American Bright’s patented SimpleDrive® technology which eliminates the need for bulky external ballasts which are the primary weakness of traditional lighting systems. By eliminating all external power supplies the Slimm Series not only takes up less space, it’s 40% thinner and 30% lighter than previous versions, yet delivers greater efficacy with significantly less energy consumption. A custom optical design assures the perfect light distribution for the application.
Independent laboratory testing performed to LM79 industry standards confirms an efficacy of up to 75 lumens per watt. The total efficacy of the SimpleTube is nearly twice the efficacy of traditional lighting products commercially available for similar applications. SimpleTubes are UL listed, assuring compliance with internationally recognized safety standards, and they are offered in ANSI color bins. The color quality and consistency enhances product appearance and will not degrade appreciably over the 50,000+ hour projected life of the product.
