What about voltage drop with LED fixtures?

admin

Answer
Integral Lighting fixtures equipped with our direct drive LED operate with voltage from 7.5vAC to 12.5vAC. The low energy consumption of 1.2 watts to 3.6 watts virtually eliminates the voltage drop associated with standard incandescent landscape lighting installations.

Do you have an LED that blends with existing incandescent fixtures?

admin

Answer
Yes. Integral Lighting utilizes two LED packages that can provide an equivalent incandescent output. All original LED models are supplied with a standard output of pure white 3000K, equivalent to Halogen lighting. We can supply you with a permanent filter to tweak your color output to a comfortable, warm white, incandescent equivalent of 2700K.

Our second option is our IL600.xxx.550 Series. This is equipped with an Ultrawarm White LED package equivalent to 2400K. It delivers absolute warmth. Read more here.

What type of LED is used by Integral Lighting?

admin

Answer
We utilize a hybrid 12vAC LED engineered specifically for use with magnetic transformers. Our directdriveLED package is the only LED designed for specific use with AC current. No additional electronic components are required to operate our directdriveLED.

The imitators versions incorporate upwards of 20 individual electronics ranging from diodes and transistors to inductors and IC regulators, not to mention electrolytic and ceramic capacitors, all of which are a source for potential failure in the future.

Why don’t you utilize DC LED chips like other manufacturers?

admin

Answer
Until recently, DC LEDs were the widely accepted method of converting a fixture to LED. Direct Current LEDs require additional electronics within the system, commonly referred to as “the driver.” This converts the transformers AC power to DC and makes the LED operate.

We worked closely with chip designers and packagers to supply a hybrid 12v directdriveLED that requires no conversion of power. Our LED operates on AC voltage.

Simply put, less electronics = less potential failure.

What voltage is required to operate your LED?

admin

Answer
The Integral Lighting directdriveLED is engineered on a 12vAC platform. The operating range is 7.5 volts to 12.5 volts AC. Optimum performance is achieved when operated at 11.5vAC.

What is the life expectancy of your LED?

admin

Answer
When installed according to our recommendations, we expect our LED to last up to 40,000 hours. Excessive voltage and the consequence of excessive heat is the culprit of premature failure. Be sure to confirm your voltage with a digital voltmeter at both the first and last fixture. Optimum LED performance is achieved at 11.5vAC.
