New Color Temperature Adjustable LED MR16 Lamp Smoothly Mimics Halogen Dimming

Ledzworld, the innovator behind the top brands in commercial LED lighting, will display at Light + Building next week a breakthrough color temperature adjustable LED MR16 lamp that perfectly emulates the color tones of halogen light bulbs when dimmed. Now users can create the right color temperature ambiance through dimming while enjoying the energy-efficient and long-lasting benefits of LED lighting.

Seen as a large barrier to wider adoption of LED lighting, full-linear dimming has been an obstacle for many manufacturers. LED MR16 lamps on the market today simply reduce light output when dimmed, but maintain the same correlated color temperature (CCT) throughout the dimming. This
leaves much to be desired when it comes to the ambience in a room.

Utilizing a second generation of the company’s patented and award-winning “Color Temperature Adjusted” (CTA®) dimming technology, Ledzworld’s new CTA 2.0 LED MR16 lamp not only adjusts the light output strength while being dimmed, but also gradually transform from a bright soft tone color temperature at the highest level, to a warm flame color at the lowest dimming level. The CCT on the new lamp will range down from 2700K to 1600K depending on the dimming level, and adjustments can be made to meet customers’ specific demands.

“When talking with customers, we keep hearing that they want a LED MR16 lamp that can create the same color warmth of halogens when dimmed, As one of the world’s foremost experts in driver and dimming technology, we decided that this challenge had to be solved, so we miniaturized our CTA® technology and embedded it into the driver of our outstanding LED MR16 lamp,” Jan Kemeling, Founder & Chief Sales and Marketing of Ledzworld explained. “And to render colors perfectly while dimming, we are now going to make that product available with a CRI up to 95.”

In addition to the CTA 2.0 technology, the new LED MR16 lamp includes the company’s revolutionary Chameleon driver that adjusts itself to make a perfect electrical fit with the world’s most commonly used combinations of dimmers and transformers. The combination of these two breakthrough technologies makes this LED MR16 a truly unique plug-and-play solution that delivers smooth linear dimming and industry-leading compatibility.
