LUCALOX_
THE EFFICIENT LIGHT SOURCE

When General Electric introduced the Lucalox lamp


in 1965, t was ha ed as the "Third Age of L ght
as mportant as incandescent and lluorescent larnps

){

before t.
Contlnual rnprovement and upgrading has made
the lamp today's most efficient and economical source
of whlte ight available.

RELIABLE Today, the rated llfe of a 400 walt Lucalox


larnp, when operated on ten hour periods ls 15,000 hours.
Th s compares with only 6,000 hours rated ife in 1965,
when Lucalox was first introduced. And Lucalox lamps
ma nta n their efficiency- providing 92% of their rated
output after 10,000 hours of operat on, improvements rn
these a ready excellent ratings are constant y be ng
deve oped.

GOOD COLOR RENDITION Lucalox lightlng systems


have a color renditlon similar to that of the whlte

'ldorescen'S- yel

Sl

ghtly warmer rn appea.alce on

neutral surfaces. The lamp's compaclness allows belter


lght control from the luminaire's optical assembly, which
serves to minimize glare. Thls fact, pius the warm, true
color renditron of the lamp itself makes Lucalox llghting
pleasant and comfortable in a nearly inflnite variety of

applications.
MORE ECONOMICAL OPERATION Since the Lucalox
lamp provides h gher levels of light while consuming no
more electr city, it has clear economic advantages.
Lucalox lighting requires a more sophisticated control
system, but provides greater efficiency and economy for
the total rnaintained cost of light.
