LED lamps are high-efficiency alternative to MR16 halogen lamps

Lighting, LED, LED Exchange

As an alternative to MR16 low-voltage halogen lamps, LED Exchange’s ALT V% LED lamp uses just 7 W to deliver 520 lm at a warm-white colour temperature of 2800 K, 85% less than the halogen equivalent. The heat sink is said to be so effective that the lamps have a life of 30 0000 — over 10 years based on an 8-hour day.

Where less light is needed, the ALT V4 also uses 7 W and delivers 400 lm at a warm-white colour temperature of 2800 K.

For the working environment, a whiter hue of light is available, which LED Exchange calls natural light.

The size of the heat sink is minimised by using specially fine ground high military grade aluminium.
