NEW TESTS CONFIRM E-LAMP TECHNOLOGY

 NEW TESTS CONFIRM E-LAMP TECHNOLOGY
 SUNNYVALE, Calif., July 1 /PRNewswire/ -- The recently-introduced


E-Lamp by Intersource Technologies has been certified by a major independent testing facility to meet all federal requirements relative to radio wave distribution.
 EMI Measurements, a testing facility approved by the Federal Communications Commission, "substantiates the claims we made when we introduced the E-Lamp on June 1," said Nick Godley, chief operating officer for Intersource. "Our technology meets all FCC requirements, and will present no radio wave interference, thus reassuring those who raised questions about the technology," he added.
 The E-Lamp uses a high-frequency radio signal instead of a filament to produce light. It will maintain that light for at least 20,000 hours while using only 25 percent of the energy of a conventional incandescent bulb.
 According to the EMI report, "the Intersource E-Lamp was tested to determine if it complies with the Class B radiated and conducted emission requirements of FCC Part 15 and Part 18 of the Rules and Regulations and was found to be compliant." Class B certification is required for devices that are used by consumers in residential applications.
 Godley said General Electric conducted studies on the lamp in the 1980's and found the average life expectancy for the electronic technology to be over 54,000 hours. Other tests include studies by American Electric Power, one of the nation's largest utilities, and Diablo Research of Sunnyvale, Calif.
 "But these latest tests are especially significant," Godley pointed out, "because Class B requirements for residential use are five times more stringent than Class A for industrial and commercial use."
 Intersource, a Silicon Valley company incorporated in 1989, has concentrated its efforts on the E-Lamp as a replacement for the standard incandescent bulb, while responding to interest by utilities seeking to stretch electrical generating capacity and promoting energy conservation.
