Heading: New CCFL lamps pack a punch and use 80% less power

Copy: An expanded range of Micro-Brite Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamps

(CCFL) are shining new light on the outlawed incandescent lamp replacement

market and setting new standards in efficiency, power and longevity.


Now with a range from 5W to 15W (the equivalent of incandescent lamps

15W to 60W) the Micro-Brites shine just as brightly – but consume a lot less

wattage and up to 80% less power.

As well as being super efficient, the Micro-Brite range, distributed in Australia

by ANL Lighting, is rated from 18-25,000 hours – that’s four times longer than

Compact Fluorescent Lamps (CFL) and five times longer than incandescent


The 15W Micro-Brite CCFL is the world’s leading dimmable fluorescent lamp.

With an output of 750 lumens the 15W Micro-Brite will replace incandescent

lamps in dimmable applications that require more light output than lower

wattage CCFLs.  

Micro-Brite’s cold cathode technology allows it to dim to 10% of its light output

without flickering. Unlike incandescent lamps that undergo colour shift when

dimmed, the 15-watt Micro-Brite dims with consistent 2700K colour. 

Virtually the same size and shape as incandescent lamps, Micro-Brites can be

used in virtually any interior or exterior application where incandescent lamps

are currently used including Hollywood or Las Vegas style perimeter signage

lighting. They are flashable and dimmable to 10%.

ANL Lighting Director Phillip Hill: “ For the hospitality, retail, entertainment and

medical industries who rely on the energy efficiencies of compact fluorescent

lamps but want the versatility of incandescent lamps, the Micro-Brites come

out shining.”

“ They can be flashed, strobed and work with dimmers and are

indistinguishable from the incandescent lamps they replace – except for the

vastly reduced running costs,” he said.

Typical applications will include general and track lighting, table lamps,

signage, exterior, architectural and accent lighting.

Key features of the Micro- Bright range:

• Expected life up to 25,000 hours

• Can save up to 80% on energy costs

• Brighter and more cost effective than LED
