Downlight with replaceable LED module offers many lighting options

November 12, 2012 // By Christoph Hammerschmidt
Toshiba has launched the TLS-DMT6 LED Downlight, a new six-inch downlight with a replaceable LED light module. Designed for general-purpose lighting in commercial and residential applications, the product features multiple color temperatures, lumen outputs and trim finishes. The LED module, which provides the light source, can be changed easily without having to replace the entire downlight — making color temperature and lumen output changes easier for the likes of retailers, hoteliers, restaurateurs or homeowners.

The module is a complete lighting unit comprised of an integral driver, LED array and built-in heat sink. The heat sink dissipates the heat generated by the LEDs, thus controlling the operating temperature of the LED module to provide a high level of performance and ensure a long product life.

The new downlight is available in 1100 and 1500 lumen outputs, 3000, 3500 and 4000 color temperatures. The spring-loaded socket with notch and marking make it very easy to line up the module and socket for ease of installation and replacement. Using only 20 watts (1100 lumens) or 26 watts (1500 lumens), Toshiba's downlight uses a fraction of the energy that a conventional incandescent or halogen downlight requires. The downlight is manufactured to RoHS and UL standards and comes with a five-year warranty.
