Test results reveal PureSpectrum Technology exceeds Energy Star requirements for Color Rendering Index

SAVANNAH, GA – Light produced by PureSpectrum Technology really lights up a room. Recent test results performed by CSA International in Alpharetta, Ga., confirmed that a T-4 fluorescent lamp prototype built with PureSpectrum Technology exceeds Energy Star minimum requirements for Color Rendering Index (CRI). Testing has also proved that the same prototype exceeds Energy Star requirements for energy efficiency by more than 30 percent. CRI measures how accurately an artificial light source displays colors and is determined by comparing the appearance of a colored object under an artificial light source to its appearance under incandescent light. A CRI score of 80 earns Energy Star approval and is a preferred threshold for lights used in a home. The average measurement for three tests performed on the PureSpectrum T-4 prototype was 84.64, while the high score for the three tests was 84.79. “This is another objective verification of the impact and PureSpectrum Technology can have in the lighting industry,” said PureSpectrum, Inc. president and CEO Lee Vanatta. “There are important health benefits and quality of life benefits associated with a high color rendering index score. The Department of Energy sets high standards for Energy Star approval, and to exceed those standards is extremely encouraging for this technology.”

PureSpectrum, Inc. (Pink Sheets: PSPM) currently owns the rights to 13 patents and patent applications related to an innovative electronic ballast technology which produces a purified waveform during the transfer of electric current that reduces disharmony and promotes energy efficiency. In addition to increasing energy efficiency, bulbs using the PureSpectrum ballast design create a cleaner, whiter light which closely emulates the properties of natural sunlight.

PureSpectrum Technology creates a perfect waveform by significantly minimizing power line distortion and reducing total harmonic distortion. By decreasing phase displacement and reducing harmonic content, more electricity is channeled directly into a device’s functionality. As a result of this alteration in the mechanics of the lighting device, the amount of unproductive reactive power is reduced. The company does not intend to manufacturer light bulbs but is seeking to generate revenue by licensing this patented technology to existing lighting manufacturers.
Energy Star is a joint program between the Environmental Protection Agency and Department of Energy which establishes guidelines for energy efficiency and quality in a wide range of categories. CSA International labs are accredited by both the National Volunteer Laboratory Accreditation Program and the U.S. Department of Energy.
