MEGAMAN® LED - The First True Low-Energy Replacement for Halogen/Metal Halide and Incandescent Lamps

MEGAMAN® marked a new era for the lighting industry by launching its ground breaking LED Lamp series, which offers a direct one-for-one replacement for halogen, metal halide and incandescent lamps.

The MEGAMAN LEDs have comparable light intensity and colour consistency to their counterparts,  but save up to 80% energy and generate much less heat.

LED MR16 Reflectors:
MEGAMAN® announced the launch of a new series of MR16-compatible LED reflector lamps. The MEGAMAN® MR16 LED Reflectors  feature excellent performance with 80% energy savings and low heat output, making it an ideal replacement for the blazing hot halogen. The MEGAMAN® MR16 LED Reflector is compact, with a GU5.3-compatible lamp cap and a beam angle of 36o.
With the patented “Thermal Conductive HighwayTM technology, the MR16 LED is optimized for a long lifetime of 30,000 hours to lower maintenance costs and provides the highest luminance comparable to its halogen counterparts. They are available in 8W and 10W to replace 35W and 50W halogen lamps. The MEGAMAN® MR16 LED Reflectors have a colour rendering index of up to 92. 100% to 1% linear dimming can be achieved.

Metal Halide Replacement:
MEGAMAN® LED Metal Halide Replacement Series is developed to replace conventional metal halide lamps. With the patented Thermal Conductive HighwayTM (TCH) technology, heat is dissipated efficiently, minimizing deterioration towards the LED chip and other components.
With efficient thermal management, the MEGAMAN® LEDs provide high light output and lumen maintenance. Reaching a supreme luminous intensity, comparable to a higher wattage metal halide equivalents, this LED series delivers sound energy savings in operation. In addition to a lifetime of up to 40,000 hours, maintenance costs can be significantly reduced.
MEGAMAN® LED lamps also outperform the metal halide lamps as an instant-start and instant-restart lighting solution.
The MEGAMAN® LED PAR38 is the first true retrofit to PAR38 Metal Halide Lamp while the models in AR111 and PAR30L support smooth diming from 100% to 1%.

LED Candle Series:
At Light+Building 2010, MEGAMAN® showcased the new LED Candle Series, which resembles a point light source of incandescence. These LED Candles are designed to replace the incandescent candles. The MEGAMAN® LED Candle in 5W delivers a 180 lumen light output and a high CRI of 85 at a size equivalent to a 25W incandescent candle.
With a unique ‘heat sink’ design for heat dissipation, the lamp enjoys a long lamp life of 30,000 hours and releases much less heat in operation, while also saving 80% power over incandescents.
The MEGAMAN® LED Candle Series is available in different glass cover finishings including the twisted glass, smooth glass and twisted golden cover. The MEGAMAN® LED Mini Classic in 5W can replace the P45 incandescent in 25W with a comparable size and 80% power savings.
