EverLast® Lighting, Inc. launched its highly anticipated new Digital Induction system collaboratively developed with Robert Bosch, LLC. Through the use of intelligent power management, innovative lamp manufacturing processes and proprietary phosphor blends, the Tesleon® System boasts a lumen maintenance curve of LM-85 at 100,000 hours and will give reluctant consumers an alternate to the “volatile” LED product options.
When asked what about LEDs is "volatile", EverLast's Kyle Leighton commented, "What isn’t volatile about LEDs? Since LEDs have made their debut, there have been several changes regarding the warranty terms, lumen output claims, energy savings, and life expectancy. Unfortunately consumers often seek affirmation instead of information making the facts about LED smoke and mirrors. Nearly all LED manufactures have backed off initial warranty claims from 10 years to 5 years, publishing lumen per watt data that was taken outside of the fixture instead of inside the fixture housing, and have backed off their initial 100,000 hour claim down to 50,000-60,000 hours. These are just a few of the antics that we are seeing industry wide."
"German engineering united with American innovation means a rugged, optimized, reliable lighting solution not seen before in the lighting industry," Leighton continued. With automotive grade component life cycle testing and domestic manufacturing standards, the Tesleon® system operates with a failure rate of under 10 parts per million; backed by a 10-year guarantee.
“Through state of the art lamp manufacturing processes and digital electronic innovations designed by EverLast® and Bosch; Tesleon® is now the market leader boasting 110 lumens per watt. Bolt on modular control hardware, and overdesigning a lighting solution to compensate for source degradation is a thing of the past,” commented Alex Orr, Vice President of Sales at EverLast® Lighting, Inc. “Through this partnership we have created a new genre in the industry, with an onboard CPU and additional wireless control features.”
“Controlling the upstream supply chain doesn’t only mean controlling processes, it also ensures using only the highest quality raw materials. With Tesleon® digital induction systems powered by Bosch, our engineers have specified and utilized only the highest grade glass, phosphors, processors and electronics components,” explained Paul Wickett, Vice President of Engineering, at Tesleon. “Tesleon® Digital Induction drivers are truly the first ballast with an aggressive, active power quality management system specifically designed to take on the challenges of today’s grid problems.”
EverLast® digital induction light fixtures are 50-70% more energy efficient than high pressure sodium and metal halides and are rated up to 100,000 hours, making them virtually maintenance free for up to 15 years. In addition to providing a more natural and high color rendition light quality the EverLast® induction lighting fixtures are also available with an onboard wired and wireless dimming options, providing even more material cost and energy savings.
“We couldn’t be more enthused about our EverLast® lines paired with the Tesleon system,” Orr explained. “Bosch has exceeded expectations, engineering a digital induction system greatly enhances the performance of our already renowned fixtures.”
