The new Midtown LED Recessed Light features high reliability, consistent color over angle, and significant improvements in efficacy.

Lighting supplier and Original Equipment Manufacturer LED Waves is pleased to unveil a new chip and improved performance specs for the Midtown: a 9 Watt LED recessed light that can replace a 50 Watt halogen downlight. Made in the USA exclusively by LED Waves, the Midtown is a longtime best seller due to its modern design, with versatility suited for residential or commercial buildings.

The new Midtown LED Recessed Light is built with an array of three Z5M1 LEDs. This line of chips from Seoul Semiconductor features advanced phosphor technology that delivers high reliability, consistent color over angle, and significant improvements in efficacy.

Paired with the same housing, passive cooling heat sink, and electronics (including a dimmable or non-dimming 12v LED driver); the new LEDs increase the brightness of the Midtown LED Recessed Light by 88 lumens, with no additional Wattage consumption. This translates to an overall 25% improvement in efficacy, without compromising the color quality, 50,000 hour operating life, installation, or other performance characteristics of the original Midtown.

In addition to the dimmable or non-dimming options, other Midtown specifications include 3000K (warm), 4000K (neutral) and 5000K (cool) color temperatures; 8, 15, 30 and 45 degree beam spreads; and white, silver or black fixture housing.

Like all their American-made LED lights, the Midtown is covered by LED Waves’ 5 year extendable warranty. Factory-direct pricing by quantity is available to lighting designers, wholesalers and other professional specifiers by calling 1(800) 986-0169.
