GS Yuasa Corporation (Tokyo Stock Exchange: 6674; “GS Yuasa”) announced that it has launched the ceramic-metal-halide lamp ECO-CERA F 360W that can use mercury lamp 400W ballast as is.
The newly launched ECO-CERA F 360W achieves an industry-leading*1 40,000 hours of life with a single luminous tube and enables a significant reduction in maintenance costs. In addition, because it has Ra85 color rendering*2 and offers a substantial improvement in visibility compared to conventional mercury lamps and metal-halide lamps that have been used in the past, it contributes to both improved work efficiency and power saving.
ECO-CERA F 360W is a perfect product for replacing 400W mercury lamps and 400W metal-halide lamps that are often used in high-ceiling lighting for locations such as factories, warehouses, and gymnasiums. In accordance with the Minamata Convention on Mercury, it has been decided to discontinue production of mercury lamps from 2020.
