Do you have a replaceable LED lamp for my Xenon fixtures?

admin

Answer
Yes. We offer a T5 Wedge Base LED lamp that is designed with five LEDs for a full 360° light distribution. These lamps fit easily into the existing socket on our IL6.xxx and IL18.xxx fixtures.

How long should my bulbs last?

Answer
If your system has been installed with proper attention to voltage, the rated life for our bulbs are as follows:

Approximate hours are based on the manufacturers testing, and is rated when 50% of the said bulbs fail.

Many factors may have an effect on a bulb lasting the rated life. Voltage is the number one detail, and is required to be checked upon installation. We can help you troubleshoot your system if you believe that you are not achieving a satisfactory bulb life.

How do I ensure proper lamp life?

Answer
The key component to ensuring proper lamp and LED life is voltage. Checking your system with a voltmeter is the only way to confirm that your voltage is correct.

What effect does voltage have on lamp life?

Answer

LED and lamp life are directly related to the voltage supplied to the fixture. Excessive voltage generates excess heat and will shorten the life of your LED or lamp.

Correctly sizing the transformer and taking voltmeter readings are imperative to ensure your fixtures operate as warranted.

Voltage effects on LED and lamp life…

  • 13.0 volts… only 2/3 of rated life
  • 12.5 volts… only 3/4 of rated life
  • 12.0 volts… as rated by manufacturer
  • 11.0 volts… up to 2x rated life
  • 10.0 volts… up to 3x rated life

These are approximate values as the actual life varies on many factors.

Why does my first lamp fail regularly?

admin

Answer
We often hear that the transformer is located too close to the first fixture, thus, the first fixture is being exposed to a voltage spike when the system turns on. Consider cabling to your farthest fixture and returning to the first (closest) fixture. We always recommend at least 30 feet of cable between the transformer and first fixture.*

Replacement of burned out bulbs in a timely manner is critical in low voltage systems since the remaining voltage is distributed to the remaining lamps. This may produce premature failure in the remaining lamps.

*If your installation benefits from our Electronic LED Transformer, there are no distance recommendations between the transformer and first fixture. As the LED Electronic Transformer regulates the voltage at 11.5vAC, it eliminates potential voltage spikes from occurring.

Can I use a brighter bulb in Integral Lighting?

Answer
It is not recommended. Our fixtures have been tested and listed with Underwriters Laboratories for safety. The fixture was designed for optimum performance with the supplied lamp.
