LEDtronics® Announces New Durable R16 Replacement Bulbs

Sep 5, 2011
LEDtronics® has revealed its next generation of replacement R16 LED Reflector Lamps, that comes with a standard 26mm medium screw base. These replacement bulbs are a good candidate as they operate on 120VAC and create a "concentrated 40-degree beam of light."

Each bulb only draws 1.7 watts and provides up to 140 lumens. These two qualities lead to 90% savings in energy costs compared to incandescent and halogen bulbs, with an operating lifetime as long as 50,000 hours. The efficient, long-lasting, low-maintenance bulbs are a viable option for architects, retail store window displays, entertainment designers and others involved in the lighting industry. 

The durability of the R16 comes from a "clear, shatter-resistant lexan lens and a white polycarbonate sleeve" which provide protection for the LED from environmental stresses. As a result, it can be used in both indoor and outdoor applications. SSL design also protects the LEDs from electrical and mechanical shock, vibration, and frequent switching. 

LEDs pair well together with alternative energy sources like solar or wind power due to their low energy draw. The other eco-friendly aspect of the LEDs is that they do not contain toxic metals like lead or mercury.
