DRE, Inc.—a premier medical and surgical equipment provider—is now offering the highly efficient DRE Maxx Luxx LED Surgical Light. The Maxx Luxx LED is more efficient, provides a lower cost of ownership and requires less maintenance than other surgical lighting options.
The Maxx Luxx LED light is a green, environmentally friendly option that consumes about 50 percent less energy than similar halogen lighting. LEDs are more efficient than halogen because they emit light in a specific direction, rather than in all directions. This allows LEDs to produce less heat in surgical settings, and provides whiter, brighter light.
The Maxx Luxx LED provides exceptional bright light with a lux output of more than 120,000 and a color temperature of 4,300° Kelvin while virtually eliminating heat. Rated for 50,000 hours of use, ownership costs and maintenance are much lower than halogen, where bulbs must be replaced annually.
“Investing in LED medical lighting is a great way to maximize the longevity of your surgery lights and gain the benefits of newer technology,” DRE Biomedical Engineer Matt Cameron said. “Halogen users who switch to LED will see a major decrease in electric consumption – about half of halogen lights, whiter more color-correct light output, very little heat from the beam or the light head and approximately 50,000 hours of use vs. an average of 1,500 hours of halogen bulb life.”
Maxx Luxx LED Features:
- Highly efficient surgery lighting system
- Extremely cool output — lowest possible heat
