MaxLite introduces LED MR16 lamps
By Renée Francoeur
November 13, 2015 – The Energy Star certified, 7W MR16 lamps new from MaxLite are suited for commercial, retail, hospitality and other general lighting applications.
The LED lamps replace 50W halogen bulbs in miniature recessed, track and cabinet lighting fixtures with more than 80% energy savings and a much longer life, MaxLite says. Offered in GU10 and GU 5.3 bases, MaxLite MR16 lamps are designed with Chip On Board (COB) LEDs, achieving an 80-plus CRI for the 2700K and 3000K models. A 90 CRI model, but without Energy Star certification, is also available in a 3000K colour temperature. All models are dimmable.
MaxLite MR16 lamps feature a specially designed heat sink that ensures a L70-rated 25,000-hour life, the company claims. Models with a GU10 base operate on an input voltage of 120V, while GU5.3 base lamps are designed to work on 12V systems.
