WAC Lighting introduces Impulse family of versatile LEDme and halogen track luminaires

Sept. 6, 2011
Date Announced: 06 Sep 2011 Garden City, New York - Two technologies, one comprehensive design. WAC Lighting's new Impulse uses an integrated multi-chip LED spot or low voltage MR16 lamps. Robustly engineered from solid die-cast aluminum, Impulse is a thermally efficient luminaire offering architectural lighting options such as a framing projector and barn door louver attachments. Additional optical beam spread and color temperature selections make this luminaire an all-in-one choice for lighting professionals.The Energy Star compliant luminaire uses a 12-watt multi-chip LED that offers a 50,000-hour potential life from ANSI compliant warm/neutral bins for optimal color consistency. Multi-chip technology improves thermal management and heat dissipation while centralizing the light source with one replaceable 12-watt LED module rather than multiple LEDs. The technology enables the user to change beam spreads (24 or 32 degrees) and optics by changing reflectors while delivering a higher lumen output (up to 543 lumens) than a 50-watt MR16 while using 80% less power consumption with a CRI (Color Rendering Index) of 80.In addition to operating with an LED, Impulse is available with a low voltage MR16 halogen lamp that provides a more powerful light source than a standard incandescent. A clear lens is included, however other options are available for optimal light control.Dimmable with an electronic low voltage dimmer, Impulse operates on WAC Lighting’s 120-volt Standard Track Systems, as well as popular tracks in the industry.Hardware is available in handsome, rich finishes, including Black, Dark Bronze and White, to coordinate with a variety of decors.Impulse is 7 ¼ inches tall, 3 1/8 inches wide and 5 6/8 inches deep.The luminaire has a five-year warranty.About WAC LightingWAC Lighting is a leading global manufacturer and innovative designer of track, recessed, undercabinet, monorail and decorative lighting, with a new sustainable LED collection.
