Recent advancements in the lighting industry are providing a greater number of energy efficient replacements for general domestic, commercial and industrial lighting applications. Energy-efficient options include metal halides, compact fluorescents, halogens and LEDs.

Vibe’s Product Development Manager, Stephen Forsyth explains that the new Vibe LED PLC replacement downlight offers a more efficient LED option to replace standard 2 x 18W and 2 x 26W PLC downlights. Featuring a clean, flat finish, the architecturally designed LED downlight provides an aesthetic option for premium residential living areas.

Advantages of the Vibe LED downlights include low power consumption, energy efficiency and long life of 50,000 hours, resulting in lower electricity and maintenance costs. 

Vibe LED PLC replacement downlights are dimmable on most domestic or commercial lighting systems, using an appropriate driver. The LED replacement downlight is available in two wattages with a 4000K (cool white) colour temperature: a 19W, which replaces a 2 x 18W PLC and a 24W, which replaces a 2 x 26W PLC.

A high CRI of 75 and a beam angle of 100° make them ideal for applications in hotels, motels, corridors, offices, receptions, restaurants, retail shops, supermarkets, shopping centres, bars, toilets and any other general lighting requirement.

The CRI or Colour Rendering Index is a measure of the ability of a light source to reproduce the colour of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source. The CRI simply rates the colour rendering out of 100 - the higher the index, the better the colour rendering.

Synonymous with style and quality, the Vibe brand light fittings are available from ANL Lighting .
