April 11, 2013
Date Announced: 11 Apr 2013 West Caldwell, New Jersey – Perfect for accent, architectural, under cabinet and wall wash lighting applications, MaxLite® unveils a dimmable, six-watt LED PAR16 lamp which replaces a 40-watt halogen PAR16 lamp. This new LED PAR16, with a standard medium base, can be best utilized in track and mini recessed fixtures for spot and wall grazing applications to display artwork in galleries, museums and retailers or highlight tableware and decorative accessories in residential china cabinets and curios. “Our new LED PAR16 lamp is the ideal choice for providing energy efficient, architectural lighting in high-end specification projects,” said MaxLite’s Vice President of Product Marketing and Engineering Pat Treadway. “This new lamp provides substantial energy savings and superior, halogen-like quality of light.”MaxLite’s new LED PAR16 lamp offers very strong center beam candlepower and a better quality light than current halogen and CFL lamps. The LED PAR16 provides superior cost savings, especially when used with building controls, timers and motion sensors that use a mechanical relay. The new LED lamp is available in both warm white and daylight color temperatures and operates on 120-volt electrical systems. The lamp is engineered with proprietary binned LED chips that provide uniform color consistency and quality.Die-cast aluminum construction molds the body into a fin shape that increases the aluminum’s cooling surface, which acts as a heat sink and keeps the LED junction temperature below specification, enabling cool operation and maintained lumens. A sleek architectural white finish complements most types of interior décor.About MaxLite ( has been committed to providing energy efficient lighting products for the last 20 years, and was one of the first movers into LED technology in the industry.
