Toshiba Launches Downlight With Replaceable LED Light Module
Toshiba International Corporation has announced that it is introducing the Toshiba TLS-DMT6 LED Downlight, a new six-inch downlight with a replaceable LED light module. Designed for general-purpose lighting in commercial and residential applications, Toshiba’s new downlight features multiple color temperatures, lumen outputs and trim finishes. The LED module, which provides the light source, can be changed easily without having to replace the entire downlight — making color temperature and lumen output changes easier for the likes of retailers, hoteliers, restaurateurs or homeowners. The module is a complete lighting unit comprised of an integral driver, LED array and built-in heat sink. The heat sink dissipates the heat generated by the LEDs, thus controlling the operating temperature of the LED module to provide a high level of performance and ensure a long product life.
“With Toshiba’s replaceable LED light engine, the new downlight provides the ultimate design flexibility and ease of maintenance for the commercial market, and is an ideal solution for retail and hospitality applications,” said Peter DallePezze, Vice President of Marketing and Product Development, Toshiba International Corporation LED Lighting Systems Division. “Multiple color temperatures and trim options, combined with excellent color rendering make this product highly desirable for lighting designers working to create unique and inviting environments.”
The Toshiba TLS-DMT6 LED Downlight is available in 1100 and 1500 lumen outputs, 3000, 3500 and 4000 color temperatures. The spring-loaded socket with notch and marking make it very easy to line up the module and socket for ease of installation and replacement. Using only 20 watts (1100 lumens) or 26 watts (1500 lumens), Toshiba’s downlight uses a fraction of the energy that a conventional incandescent or halogen downlight requires. The downlight is manufactured to RoHS and UL standards and comes with a five-year warranty.
“Our product uses up to 75 percent less energy than a comparable halogen downlight. Multiply that by 100-plus downlights found in commercial properties, and the energy savings add up fast,” added DallePezze.
As one of the largest lighting companies and LED lamp manufacturers in the world, Toshiba is dedicated to creating high quality lighting products, while keeping energy consumption low. One hundred percent of Toshiba’s current lighting product offering and lighting product development in the U.S. is based on LED technology.
