LED downlights use 80 per cent less electricity
MR11/MR16 LED downlights
Marl has launched MR11 and MR16 LED downlights that use up to 80 per cent less electricity than the halogen equivalents and in most instances are a direct plug-in replacement.
These products are part of a major expansion of Marl's range of architectural LED lights, which also includes panel lamps, fluorescent-tube replacements and highly controllable effect-lighting solutions.
According to Marl, its LED products will pay for themselves within a year when operated for 18-24hrs a day and will last for nearly six years (50,000hrs) continuous illumination.
The Marl 256 series MR16 LED downlight matches the output of a 35W halogen light but draws 6W.
It interfaces with all standard MR16 sockets, allowing direct replacements, and in most instances can be powered from the same 12V AC or DC supply.
The modules emit zero ultraviolet or infrared radiation in the light beam and are available in warm-white or cool-white form.
The Marl 257 series MR11 downlight is offered in two power levels, which produce the light output of a 20W and a 10W halogen respectively but draw less than 2W.
The 10W reading lamp is exactly the same size as the MR11, while the all-purpose 20W lamp is 10mm deeper.
Marl has extended its range of LEDs in various colours and configurations, including high-intensity 1W and 3W white LEDs, further surface-mount and through-hole devices and RGB LEDs for indoor use.
Marl has announced that it has the capability to design and manufacture bespoke infrared LED assemblies associated, if required, with floodlights.
Marl International has announced that its 407 series of LED indicators has received a certificate of acceptance from Network Rail for use on railway infrastructure applications.
Marl has added a pink version to its 676 series standard-indicator light-emitting diodes (LEDs), which are ideal for panels and status indication applications thanks to their wide viewing angles.
Available from Marl, the 4.5W Citizen CL-L251 delivers 290 lumens of light output at a colour temperature of 3,000K, with colour rendering of Ra85 - equivalent to a standard 20W MR16 halogen.
