MaxLite’s Plug-And-Play LED Lightbars Sport New Sizes, Temps

You know what’s going to help LEDs make incandescent light bulbs a laughable thing of the past (besides the phase-out)? Versatility. Indoor or outdoor, high fashion or high utility, LEDs can do it all. Nothing demonstrates this currently level of adaptability than the newest dimmable plug-and-play LED lightbars from MaxLite.

The new lightbars are available in an expanded number of colors and sizes. Their slender shape–they have overall dimensions less than one square inch–makes them easy to conceal in demanding locations, allowing a convenient alternative to the usual light socket.

Available in 2700K, 3500K and 5000K correlated color temperatures (CCTs), the expanded lightbar line includes new two- and four-foot sizes in 12- and 24-watts, respectively. The lightbars offer energy savings and efficacy compared to its counterparts: An 80-watt xenon under-cabinet task light will consume eight times the power of MaxLite’s highest wattage LED lightbar.

The fixtures are constructed with color-matched LED chips for uniform color consistency and an architectural grade diffuser that conceals the LEDs and minimizes glare, thus maximizing efficiency without sacrificing light output, which ranges up to 1125 lumens. Dimmable down to 10 percent, the fixtures are engineered with a built-in LED driver that eliminates the need for additional components and enables the system to be powered by a standard AC outlet, sure to make quick fans of those in the electrical trades.

The new styles provide lighting solutions for architects, specifiers and builders planning to add cabinet, cove and industrial lighting in bathrooms, conference rooms and lobbies, factory workspaces, and foyers in homes, retailers, restaurants, hotels and other commercial and hospitality venues. These fixtures can be linked together for continuous runs at any desired length, even around tight soffits, to achieve unbroken beams of illumination for decorative or functional needs, reports Energy Manager Today.

The MaxLite lightbars are also available in six-inch and one-foot lengths in 2700K and 5000K.
