TruDim™ CFL: The First Fully Dimmable Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) March 30, 2011Posted by bowmanlamps in compact fluorescent light bulbs, lumen output number, energy savings, dimmable CFL.
Lighting has a major impact on the rooms we live and work in. That’s why dimmable incandescent light bulbs, which allow you to control the amount of light, are popular. Dimmable compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL), while energy-saving, have disappointed us with a limited dimming range, flickering, slow warm-up time, and short lives. Usable yes, but I’d give them a B performance rating on a good day.
All that changed with the introduction of the TruDim™ CFL series by TCP Inc. Technological improvements allow for smooth dimming down to 2 percent, quick start, and longer life. TruDim™ CFLs truly are full-dimming light bulbs. Right now they are available as R30 floodlights / reflectors and traditional A-lamp shapes. Colors range from the:
- warm whites of 2700K and 3000K
- bright whites of 3500K and 4100k
- cool whites of 5000k and 6500k
If you still need more incentive to buy, see how they work in this YouTube video from TCP.
