Technical Consumer Products SpringLamp 190 Series (http://rbi.ims.ca/4915-546). A direct replacement for a three-way incandescent bulb, this compact fluorescent lamp (CFL) has two lower light output and power consumption levels and lasts eight times longer. The CFL consumes only 32W to provide 1950 lumens, the same light output as a 150W light bulb. Selecting a lower 1100 or 450 lumen light level requires only 19 or 14W. TCP engineers chose the IR2156 high voltage control IC from International Rectifier for its control and power management features, including built-in protection and programmability in a single package.
