MR16 Series TrueWhite LED Lamps, Cree 
Cree says its MR16 Series of LED lamps consumes up to 83% less energy than 50W halogens while offering a soft, glare-free diffused light. The lamp delivers more than 580 lumens in 3000K and has a CRI of 92. It is also available in 15-degree spot, 25-degree flood, and 40-degree wide flood beam angles, and is dimmable to 5%. A 1.97", ANSI-compliant form factor facilitates one-for-one lamp replacement.

GE Lighting

PAR30, GE Lighting 
An alternative to conventional ceramic metal halide lamps in retail applications, GE Lighting’s PAR30 is fitted with light-enhancing technology tuned to draw out bright whites and bold colors without glare. Each 12W lamp delivers 650 lumens at 2850K and with a CRI of 95. They are offered in 15- and 25-degree beam patterns and emit less ultraviolet and infrared than halogen or incandescent lamps, reducing the risk of fading. The lamps are dimmable down to 20%.

Generation Brands

LED Bi-Pin Replacement Pendant Module, Generation Brands 
Generation Brands collaborated with LED manufacturer Soraa on this bi-pin replacement module that will be offered under the company’s Tech Lighting and LBL Lighting lines. Two 8W versions of the module are available: one that produces 500 lumens in 3000K with a CRI of 80, and another that produces 375 lumens in 2700K with a CRI of 95. Dimmable to less than 10% with electronic and magnetic transformers.

S38 Tunable Lamp, Ketra 
With onboard wireless technology, Ketra’s S38 Tunable Lamps offer a range of adjustable 90-plus CRI white, pastel, and saturated colors. Each LED lamp delivers up to 900 lumens and offers closed-loop color-point maintenance to less than a one-step MacAdam ellipse in its lifetime. Wireless and TRIAC dimmable to 0.1%, the lamps have beam angles from 10 degrees to 60 degrees and can be programmed to specific color temperatures and dimming curves, among other features.

Lattice Power

LED NUP-PAR38, Lattice Power
These PAR38 lamps feature GaN-based LEDs on a silicon substrate to improve light density and a thermal-pipe sink to dissipate heat without the need for active cooling. Each 27W lamp provides up to 2,000 lumens in 2700K, 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K with a CRI of 80. An alternative to 150W-maximum halogen source options in commercial spaces with high ceilings, the lamps offer 25- and 40-degree beam angles and fit an E26 base.


LED Omni A19, Litetronics 
Designed to meet Energy Star V1.1, this LED lamp uses 80% less energy than the 40W or 60W A19 incandescents it is designed to replace, its maker says. The lamp is available in two frosted-white modules that each offer 2700K: a 4.3"-tall-by-2.4"-wide 7W version that produces 475 lumens as well as a 4.4"-tall-by-2.4"-wide 12W version that generates 800 lumens. Both offer 300-degree light distribution, turn on to instant full brightness, and dim with standard switches.

Osram Sylvania

Ultra Pro & Ultra Pro HD PAR LED Lamps, Osram Sylvania 
These LED PAR lamps offer a power factor and characteristics similar to the candlepower and soft edges of the halogen lamps they are intended to replace. Available in 7W, 10W, 13W, and 17W versions that provide 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K at a CRI of either 82 or 92, and with 12-, 15-, 25-, and 40-degree beam angles. Dimmable down to 5%, the lamps use 86% less energy than their halogen alternatives, according to the company.


SlimStyle BR30, Philips 
This indoor BR30 LED lamp replaces 65W incandescent floodlights. Its thin form factor offers uniform light distribution while conducting heat away from the LEDs to require a minimal heat sink. Consuming 9.5W to produce 650 lumens in 5000K, the dimmable lamp fits an E26 base and uses 85% less energy than its incandescent predecessor, according to Philips.


Optical Light Engines, Soraa 
Compatible with many industry-standard drivers and suitable for enclosed, non-ventilated indoor and outdoor luminaires, Soraa’s full-visible-spectrum GaN-on-GaN low-profile light engines produce high center-beam candlepower from narrow spot to flood. Offered in 1.5", 2", and 4" diameters, 500 and 1,000 lumens, in 2700K, 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K, and with a CRI and deep red rendering of 95.
