Cypress, California (April 2009) — From the world leader in MR-16 lamp technology comes
the world’s first truly usable solid state LED MR-16. Synergy™, by USHIO, is the world’s most
efficient, longest life MR-16 lamp ever manufactured. Synergy™ is the ultimate combination of
proprietary LED packaging technology, a patented optical system, premium thermal management and
a highly efficient electronic design. Now that’s Synergy™, the USHIO way!
Synergy™’s breakthrough technology allows this 4W LED MR-16 to directly replace 20-25W halogen
MR-16s. No false claims, just outstanding performance that yields 80% energy savings.
Rated at 50,000 hours, Synergy™ has a true life rating of more than 10 times that of standard MR-16
lamps on the market today. It’s easy to see why Synergy™ is the lighting designers’ first choice for
those applications where frequency of lamp changes and cost of ownership are significant factors.
Synergy™ LED MR-16 lamps are also fully dimmable, RoHS compliant and emit no harmful UV or IR
like standard halogen MR-16s.
USHIO is proud of its commitment to making the world a greener place and Synergy™, by USHIO, is
a giant leap forward in achieving our goal. Use of these lamps dramatically reduces carbon emissions
from coal-fired power plants as well as the amount of hazardous waste, such as mercury, disposed of
in our landfills.
Synergy™ LED MR-16 lamps are available in Spot (12 degree), Narrow Flood (24 degree), Flood (34
degree) and Wide Flood (50 degree) beam spreads. Warm White, Neutral White and Daylight color
temperatures are available to satisfy the requirements for nearly every application.
