Domestic consumers & lighting designers have been left with a difficult choice over the years when it comes to choosing between LED lighting or traditional filament lighting such as Halogen - Whilst LED offers great energy saving benefits, it has always been at the cost of losing the smooth dimming curve of traditional filament lamps that emit an increasingly warmer light when dimmed.
Megaman’s Dim to Warm technology allows you to adjust the colour temperature as you dim it thereby replicating the action once unique to halogen lamps. Dimming the award winning lamps from 100% to 10%, smoothly changes the colour temperature from a natural 2800K to a warmer 1800K perfect for creating a more relaxing atmosphere. Lighting professionals and domestic consumers can now rejoice at being able to replicate the characteristics of incandescent and halogen lamps in their installations whilst still being able to benefit from all the energy saving behaviours of LED lighting.
At full brightness it has the same appearance as ordinary warm white LED, but as you reduce the brightness by using a dimmer switch, the colour temperature becomes warmer until it reaches 1800K which is warmer than candlelight.
It’s no wonder that the Megaman Dim To Warm 6W GU10 Dim to Warm PAR16 2800K-1800K (Manufacturer’s Part Number 141806) was recently voted the Lighting Designer’s Favourite Decorative Lighting Product at the Darc Awards and was even used in the awards very own installation for the opening party.
