Taipei, Taiwan, 2008/07/01 - GlacialTech, Inc., today announces the availability of the Light Emitting Diode (LED) – MR16 bulb, designed to replace the Halogen MR16 globe currently available in markets worldwide.
For just a fraction of the power usage, the innovative product incorporates the same structure and style of traditional Halogen MR16 products, but delivers a brighter performance, with less heat radiation than before. The LED-MR16 can be used for general everyday use, and incorporates all the latest luminary technology garnered from GlacialTech’s unique resources; combining years of experience in designing cooling systems as well as all manner of consumer electronic device power supplies. GlacialLight, the new sub-brand of GlacialTech will leverage the GlacialLight products to be better and higher in quality than competing products using high quality heatsinks, specialized power units and Light Emitting Diode (LED) luminaries, giving them longer life (in excess of 50 000hrs) with higher lumen throughout the lifecycle.
Low power consumption; high brightness with long life
GlacialTech LED-MR16 uses just 3.5Watts of energy whereas traditional halogen light sources burn at 50Watts, while emitting harmful radiation and creating mercury by-products as well. The LED-MR16 is a safe, environmentally friendly solution that reduces harmful chemical exposure to the environment, but also reduces global emissions through reduced power consumption. The efficient cooling structure of the heatsink is optimally designed to keep the 50 000hr longevity of the device intact.
Wide product range under development
GlacialTech is developing a comprehensive range of products under the GlacialLight brand, stretching from street lighting solutions to all forms of industrial lighting and architectural lighting. The products on offer and in development include serious product enhancements over the current range of competing products available on the market, such as MR16 / PAR30 / PAR38 / BR30 / BR40 / T8 Tubes and Spotlights as well as an innovative and unique types of Torches and Bicycle lamps designed with multi-functionality as the key ingredients. These LED products will retain the customary shape and design of standard globes to allow easy replacement of legacy products. The product line is quite extensive and includes replacements for standard light bulbs and tubes for homes and offices.
Experienced electronics manufacturer
To ensure the best performance and long life time of LED luminary products requires efficient and consistent cooling of the LED, with a durable high quality power supply. As experienced manufacturer of PC cooling and power supplies GlacialLight has leveraged the resources required to create quality LED lighting products combining the exemplary cooling capabilities with durable power unit designs to create optimal solutions for the most demanding of lighting products.
Advantages of LED compared to traditional lighting
LED lights offer the following advantages and benefits compared to traditional globes (Filament) and compact fluorescent Lamp (CFL) products, such as directional lighting, which is ideal for torches (Flashlights) and spotlights. There are no starting problems in cold environments because LED’s are “Instant on” with no warm up time needed as seen in conventional CFL lighting. In addition, LED lighting solutions do not contain environmentally hazardous metals such as mercury or sodium and do not emit potentially harmful Ultraviolet radiation or Infrared radiation like Halogen lamps. Another benefit is the extremely long life cycle of around 50 000 hrs which lowers maintenance costs in the long term. The GlacialLight LED product range offers considerable power savings while extending long product life cycles under normal conditions. The advantages of LED lighting adding to the lowering of the world’s carbon footprint cannot be underestimated.
