LED Waves debuts affordable, efficient LED MR-16 made in the USA

June 20, 2012
Date Announced: 20 Jun 2012 LED Waves is proud to roll out the Los Angeles 2.0 LED MR-16, engineered and built in the USA. This bulb is a 4.5 Watt replacement for 50 Watt halogen spot lights, setting a new high standard for lumens per Watt efficacy. A direct retrofit replacement in low volt lighting systems, the Los Angeles is available in neutral (4000K) or warm white (3000K) and beam spreads of 17 or 37 degrees. (Other color temperatures and beam angles may be special ordered.)The custom engineered heat sink on the Los Angeles features curved aluminum fins. This innovative design maximizes the standard MR-16 diameter by creating more surface area for thermal distribution (prolonging the lifespan of the LEDs).The Los Angeles 2.0 is LED Waves’ first MR-16 designed with the Cree XLamp XB-D LED. This chip performs similarly to the efficacy barrier-breaking XP-G, but comes with a 48% smaller footprint - enabling more compact, lightweight designs.Advancements in silicon carbide technology make the XB-D more cost effective than previous chips with silicon and sapphire-based substrates. As a manufacturer and supplier, LED Waves is able to pass these savings onto their customers. An American-made LED MR-16 of this quality and at this price point is a game changer for the country’s lighting industry, which has been dominated by cut-rate offshore manufacturing.The per unit price is $19.99, with further discounts by quantity. Free samples of the Los Angeles MR-16 are available to lighting specifiers across the USA.

The company strives to fulfill the lighting needs of every industry with LED solutions that are both economically and environmentally sustainable.
