LED Retrofits Made Easy with the Integrated Series Light Plugz®

American Illumination presents the Integrated Series Light Plugz.® LED engines at Lightfair 2012. This Integrated Series was developed as an extension of the classic Light Plugz.®, an architectural-grade LED light engine. The series is wet location listed and features field-interchangeable optics, intelligent thermal management, various connector options and several customizable features to make transitioning to LED lighting easy for the OEM or designer. The entire Light Plugz.® collection is excellent for retrofits, Title 24 requirements, custom OEM fixture designs and even with the AI designed luminaires.

LED Engines For the Most Sophisticated Retrofits:
According to Gina Lee, Director of Marketing for American Illumination, “Lighting designers and manufacturers will appreciate the jewel-like qualities of the Light Plugz®. Sophisticated lighting projects such as retail scenes, museum displays, furniture lighting, track lighting, up lights, landscape, and recessed down lights will be revived with the Light Plugz®. These smooth, sleek engines work well in cylindrical fixtures – especially tight luminaires where there is full contact between the light engine and the inside walls of a fixture. This proximity results in a more efficient heat transfer so that the Light Plugz® operate under optimal thermal conditions.”  

Designer Ready LED Retrofit:
Though lovely to behold, the real beauty is in the built-in performance and customizable features of the Light Plugz®.  Existing low and line voltage luminaires will get a new life with the Light Plugz®, making high quality retrofits a breeze. Thinking about LED retrofits?  American Illumination has created the “Designer EZ LED Retrofit Light Plugz® Brochure”.

Dimmable, Colors, Multiple Bases Optics & More:
Designed in Los Angeles, the dimmable Integrated Series of Light Plugz® utilize the Cree XP Series LEDS (1W to 6.3W) with color options that include white (warm, natural, cool), red, green, blue, amber or RGB. They are offered in multiple configurations to accommodate all types of luminaires (hard wire, tapped base plate, bi-pin, bayonet and more). Changing optics from 10 to 80 degrees (narrow spot to extra wide flood) in the field can be easily done with the interchangeable optic design.  Custom features also include additional heat sink, omni-directional diffusers, bezel and custom sizing.
