Lamp first fully-fledged LED substitute for a 40W incandescent lamp

Product News

Osram's Parathom Classic is said to be the world's first LED lamp with a screw base that can be used as a direct replacement for a 40W GLS lamp. However, the Parathom Classic requires just 8W to achieve the same light yield, i.e. 80% less energy and over its lifetime it will save 400 kg of CO2. With an average service life of 25,000 hours, it lasts 25 times longer than a traditional incandescent lamp. This new lamp is at the forefront of the LED revolution.

"The Osram Parathom Classic is the ultimate cutting-edge product for end users who wish to be ahead of the pack when it comes to lighting technology, providing them with the most innovative and energy-efficient lighting technology the world has ever seen. We are proud to launch the very first bulb shaped LED lamp which constitutes a true substitute for a 40W incandescent lamp. This move will speed the advance of LED technology as a genuine alternative for general lighting applications," says Christian Schraft, Head of Consumer Lighting at Osram.

Mercury-free and free from UV and infrared radiation
The Parathom Classic is extremely compact, shatter-proof and resistant to vibrations, making it suitable for a wide range of applications. The lamp is also completely free from mercury and the light it produces contains no UV or infrared radiation.
