Press release date: August 22, 2012
West Caldwell, New Jersey - MaxLite®, a leading global manufacturer and marketer of the award-winning MaxLED® line of innovative LED luminaires and lamps, announces that three LED lamps and luminaires are now listed on the Lighting Design Lab's (LDL) interim qualified products list. This listing ensures that MaxLite's 17-watt Pancake, 17-watt Eclipse and 14-watt Security Light with PhotoCell will qualify for rebates for one year by most utility companies in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States, which includes Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Utah and Alaska. The LDL qualifies LED products while they are being reviewed by ENERGY STAR® or DesignLights(TM) Consortium (DLC). Products on the LDL list are certified to meet ENERGY STAR or DLC specs, except lumen maintenance, which is verified while the product is part of the LDL qualification list. The products are listed for no longer than 12 months during which time the ENERGY STAR or DLC qualification is usually completed.
"We are proud to add these three new LEDs to MaxLite's growing list of products on the LDL Products List, including the LED A19, LED PAR20 and LED PAR30," said MaxLite's Director of Product Marketing Pat Treadway. "This is a testament that MaxLite products have high standards of energy efficiency, performance and quality, which we pass onto our Pacific Northwest customers."
While providing better quality light than CFL products and offering superior cost savings to their incandescent alternatives, these MaxLED lamps and luminaires deliver a projected 50,000 L70 life and maintenance-free operation. Manufactured with high-ranked LEDs that are proprietary binned to ensure color uniformity, these LED products are the environmentally friendly lighting choices that are constructed without mercury or hazardous materials and operate without emitting IR and UV radiation.
MaxLite's three LED products have a minimum CRI of 80, are UL- and cUL-listed for damp locations, and operate on a 120-volt lighting system.
· The 17-watt LED Eclipse Lamp is a unique LED light source with a compact form that can be used in a wide variety of applications, including recessed cans with open trims, bullet style track head fixtures and pendants in residential, commercial, retail and hospitality environments. With a high lumen output of up to 1140, flood beam angle distribution and superior heat management, the dimmable Eclipse is available in 3000K, 4100K and 5000K CCTs. Eclipse also features Component Isolation Technology(TM), which is a mid-engine approach that places the driver in an isolated and ventilated heat-sunk center section of the bulb, allowing the driver to sustain cooler temperatures than traditional bulbs, but remain separate from the LED light source.
