LED PLC Replacement Downlight

Vibe’s Product Development Manager, Stephen Forsyth says: “Vibe Lighting has looked at the need to have a more efficient LED option to replace standard 2 x 18W and 2 x 26W PLC downlights. The Vibe LED PLC Replacement Downlight has a clean, flat finish, leaving a high building presentation and is also a great option for premium residential living areas.”

This architecturally designed fitting is dimmable on most domestic or commercial lighting systems, provided you have the appropriate driver. The LED replacement downlight is available in two wattages, with a 4000K (cool white) colour temperature: a 19W, which replaces a 2 x 18W PLC and a 24W, which replaces a 2 x 26W PLC.

Their low power consumption, energy efficiency and long life of 50,000 hours assist in reducing not only electricity costs, but also maintenance costs. They have a high CRI of 75 and a beam angle of 100°, making them ideal for applications such as:

  • Hotels
  • Motels
  • Corridors
  • Offices
  • Receptions
  • Restaurants
  • Retail shops
  • Supermarkets
  • Shopping Centres
  • Bars
  • Toilets
  • and any other areas where general lighting is required.

Quite often in lighting product specification sheets, it will mention a CRI rating, the CRI or Colour Rendering Index is a measure of the ability of a light source to reproduce the colour of various objects faithfully in comparison with an ideal or natural light source. The CRI simply rates the colour rendering out of 100, the higher the index the better the colour rendering.

The Vibe brand of light fittings is synonymous with style and quality. Vibe supplies an ever growing network of lighting retailers and hardware stores, electricians, landscape designers, architects and builders with a wide range of lamps, light fittings and other electrical merchandise.

Vibe Eco’s 9W LED Retrofit Downlight lamp

As we all know, saving money on electricity has become quite a hot topic for most citizens over the last 6 months.

On the 3rd December 2012, Today Tonight produced a short 6 minute video, which involved a family who invited experts into their home, they assisted in giving them as much useful information and products that would help reduce as much energy consumption as possible. Everything that was talked about can easily be applied to your home or workplace.

During the video, Energy auditor Petar Basanovic from Water and Energy Savers, informed viewers and the family that “Halogen globes run about 50 watts each”. So it was goodbye to 28 energy munching halogens and say hello to 28 energy saving, eco-friendly LED’s.

The brand he recommended to replace the Halogen globes are in fact ANL Lighting’s Vibe Eco brand.

Vibe Eco Lighting is dedicated to providing environmentally friendly lighting products to the general public. These products are all Do-It-Yourself products, so they are easy to install without having to get a qualified electrician in. Vibe Eco Lighting aim to support local retailers and protect the environment with these eco-friendly products.

These products are carefully chosen to provide superior quality, while helping the environment at the same time. These products all have LED technology, as LED’s are at the forefront of new energy saving lighting.

Vibe Eco Lighting products are easy to recognise, as they are in bright orange packaging. So when you are thinking of green lighting, look for the orange box and you won’t be disappointed.

The lamp he chose was the Vibe Eco 9W LED Retrofit lamp, also known as a direct replacement lamp. As mentioned, this lamp has an extremely long life of 50,000 hours which assists in saving you up to 80% on energy and maintenance costs. They are available in a 6W & 9W with two colour temperature choices of 3000K (warm white) & 4000K (cool white).

More helpful DIY tips include:

  • Switching over to more energy efficient lighting such as LED’s
  • Turning off all appliances at the power point
  • When thinking of buying new appliances, make sure you check their energy star rating – the more stars the better
  • Decrease thermostats on heater – this can save you 15%
  • When purchasing a new computer consider a laptop, as it uses around 60W of power, whereas a Desktop uses 300W.
  • When it comes to bathing time choose to have a shower rather then a bath. 5 minute showers are sufficient, if you need to, buy a timer.
  • Wash your dishes in a sink rather than using a dishwasher.
  • When washing clothes, only put a full load on
  • Turn off the lights once you leave the room.
  • When you wake up in the morning, instead of turning the light on, open your curtains and let light into your room that way.
  • Save energy by hanging your clothes on the clothes line rather than using the dryer.
  • If you can, switch from electric to gas hot water.
  • Try and use a Microwave to cook your meal whenever possible, as it uses less than half the energy of an oven.
  • If possible use your fire place for warmth rather than your heating system

Although the initial cost’s on trying to reduce energy consumption may be high, the amount of money you will save in the long run is never ending.
