Light Boltz Mde Debut During Lightfair

American Illumination, Inc.® introduced the modern, sleek Light Boltz LED engine during Lightfair to widely receptive audiences. With a cylindrical shape and a integrated heat sink, this LED engine is perfect for lighting applications where high light output and maximum efficacy are required, without sacrificing aesthetics. The Light Boltz is an attractive, contemporary LED module with a satin silver finish. The overall design lends itself well to recessed lighting designs, up-lights, bollards, track lighting, spot lighting and more.

Harnessing triple Cree XP-G Series LED’s, the UL-pending Light Boltz features a slim profile at 2" OD x 2.5" L (12V AC/DC model) or 3.5" L (120VAC model) while packing a punch similar to a PAR20 bulb, thus giving specifiers and designers a wide range of performance options that all share a common footprint. The Cree XLamp XP-G LED delivers unprecedented levels of light output and efficacy for a single-die LED, and in the Light Boltz has been tripled for maximum illumination capabilities.

Lighting engineers and designers will enjoy the Light Boltz LED engines for contemporary fixture designs, but the benefits go well beyond aesthetics. The Light Boltz includes various features such as an internal thermal regulator with a self-contained constant current driver. Available in 2750K (Warm White), 3950K (Natural White), 6000K (Cool White), or Single Color (Red, Blue, Green or Amber), it can be utilized for applications such as grow lights, museum spotlights, track lights, architectural down lights, and much more. It offers the ability to interchange optics in the field and is also tapped for indoor tracks, recessed lighting fixtures or outdoor landscape fixtures. When used indoors, the Light Boltz can be implemented standalone for a bold look, or can be integrated into a high-end luminaire.

American Illumination also offers custom design services to create light engines for unique luminaires and specialty applications. For samples or additional information on the Light Boltz, contact American Illumination at (310) 202-6500 or visit
