Lumex Expands Sunbrite Family of LEDs
Sunbrite general illumination LEDs.
Palatine, IL — Lumex has expanded its SunBrite family of general illumination LED technologies. Two new SunBrite technology categories — the SunBrite 5-Watt MR-16 Retrofit LED and the SunBrite Modular LED Lightbar are now available worldwide. The new SunBrite LED technologies are said to provide considerable energy savings and are well suited for a wide range of applications that include general, spot and track lighting in residential, commercial and industrial applications.

The SunBrite 5-Watt MR-16 Retrofit LED provides significant cost and performance benefits compared to halogen alternatives widely available in the market today. The SunBrite MR-16 Retrofit LED technology offers comparable brightness (300 Lumens at 12 volts) and color performance (CRI over 80) to halogen alternatives, while simultaneously providing significant energy, cost and lifespan improvements.

The RoHs-compliant MR-16 LED uses up to 80 percent less current than alternative halogen technologies. In addition, the lifespan of the MR-16 LED is up to 8x longer than that of a standard halogen technology (17 years compared to roughly 2 years assuming Energy Star average daily usage of 4 hours/day).

The LED's metal body construction serves as a natural heat sink and makes the technology more durable than halogen alternatives. This greatly reduces labor costs associated with bulb replacements — especially in high-ceiling or other difficult-to-reach locations. The modular technology family uses a wide variety of compatible components making it possible to mix-and-match individual pieces in a wide variety of sizes and formats in order to create a solution ideally suited for each application. Users can create their own unique lightstrip kit from several different available technologies.
