Low Voltage ( 12 volt)
The MR8, MR11 and MR16 (mini-reflectors) provide
excellent beam control. They are available in numerous
spot and flood beam options. Their miniature size
permits their use in smaller track and recessed fixtures.
They also are used in outdoor landscape accent lighting
PAR36 bulbs provide
superior beam control,
especially over longer
distances. They also are
available in many beam
spread options, and are
used in track, recessed and outdoor landscape accent

The T- 4 Bi-pin bulb is a miniature bulb used in
pendants, halogen desk lamps, and linear, low-voltage
track systems. They are used widely in cove lighting
conditions and in undercabinet, low-voltage lighting
Xenon rigid-loop, festoon and wedge base bulbs are
miniature bulbs and have become very popular for
strip, under-cabinet and cove lighting applications.
Xenon bulbs produce a white light similar to that
of tungsten-halogen, have a much longer life rating
(some up to 20,000 hours, much like fluorescent) and
operate at lower temperatures than halogen.
Light Emitting Diode
Light emitting diode (LEd) bulbs are available in a wide
variety of configurations and can be used to replace
standard incandescent, low-voltage, tungsten, halogen,
xenon, general service and reflectorized bulbs. In the
future, LED bulbs may become the predominant type
of light source used in homes.
The light emitting diode (LED) is one of today’s most
energy-efficient and rapidly developing technologies.
This type of light bulb is more than five times more
energy-efficient and can last up to 25 times longer than
traditional incandescent bulbs. While LEDs are more
expensive, they still save money because they last a long
time and use a low amount of energy.
