Integral Switch on LED Module Makes it Easy to Control BrightnessA position adjustment on the LED module itself allows the selection of the desired lighting output at four levels (100%, 65%, 40% or 20%). In addition, the new generation also ushers in a standalone outdoor version of the Light Boltz for exposed applications. The new generation of Light Boltz will control light output to avoid often-complicated dimmer incompatibilities, while achieving energy savings through various brightness levels within a single installation. The adjustable brightness feature is manipulated via a dial on the front end of the Light Boltz and gives lighting designers and installers the option to reduce or brighten the output as they see fit for the application. The standalone version will also free the Boltz from requiring a sealed fixture to protect this LED engine from outdoor elements such as water, dirt and other elements.“We are keeping a sharp eye on changing client needs, and constantly finding new ways to evolve our products to improve energy efficiency and flexibility. The Light Boltz LED engine is perfect for lighting applications where high light output and maximum efficiency are required. The sleek, compact, plug and play LED engine makes it easy to allow users to create drama without sacrificing aesthetics,” said Mark Lee, president of American Illumination Inc. “The overall design lends itself well to wall lighting, recessed lighting designs, up-lights, bollards, track lighting, decorative ceiling fixtures, spot lighting and architectural grade lighting solutions.”Great Options Also Available Utilizing CREE XP-G LEDsLight Boltz is an attractive, contemporary cylindrical LED engine with an integrated heat sink, self-contained driver, and 10, 30 and 60 field-interchangeable optics. The Light Boltz utilizes triple CREE XP-G (Gen 2) LED’s for a total maximum power consumption of 10W and 510+ lumens measured at a Warm White color temperature, making this directional product comparable to a 50W PAR20 halogen bulb. It features a slim profile at 2″ OD x 3″ L with various attachment options such as a yoke 1/8 IPS tapped base plate for simple installation. Light Boltz is available in 27050K (Warm White), ½” NPT (Natural White), 4000K 6000K (Cool White), or RGB/RGBA.Lighting OEMs, engineers and designers are invited to see the way brightness levels can be easily handled through the Light Boltz.
