New Light Boltz offers stepped brightness selection
By Stephanie Lai
June 26, 2013 – American Illumination has unveiled the next generation of its Light Boltz LED engine, which will now offer stepped brightness selection through an integral switch. A position adjustment on the LED module itself allows the selection of the desired lighting output at four levels (100%, 65%, 40% or 20%). The new Light Boltz boasts controlled light output while avoiding often-complicated dimmer incompatibilities. The standalone version will also free the Boltz from requiring a sealed fixture to protect this LED engine from outdoor elements such as water, dirt and other elements, says the company. The Light Boltz utilizes triple Cree XP-G (Gen 2) LED’s for power consumption of 10W and 510+ lumens (max) measured at a warm white colour temperature, making this directional product comparable to a 50W PAR20 halogen bulb.
