Hello George. You are owed a thank-you on this one as it was a conversation that we shared that led to the idea of the rotatable base, directional G4 BiPin lamp we launched yesterday. It's good to be heard isn't it?
Sorry it took so long to bring it to market, but we actually worked very hard to develop that base and went through a few iterations to get it right.
This lamp will be the perfect solution for small fixtures that have the socket mounted on the side of the fixture and where there is no consistency between the socket pin orientation and the lens of the fixture. No more having to bend the static pins of the directional wafer style lamp to get it aimed out of the lens. Puck lights, mini-floods, and wall wash fixtures where you want a soft, even, directional wash of light are where these small but mighty lamps will shine.
Of course Illumicare still offers its rear-pin
, directional, BiPin lamp for those fixtures that have the socket mounted at the back of the fixture. http://www.illumicaregroup.com/2010/...4-bi-pin-rear/
as well as our omni-directional
G4 BiPin for fixtures such as path lights and full size floods where you might want more output than the wafer style lamps will provide. http://www.illumicaregroup.com/2010/09/led-g4-pin/
As with all of our lamps, these are specifically designed for use in LV outdoor lighting applications, inside enclosed fixtures and in moist/humid environments. All the while providing you with industry leading light output, colour consistency and lamp life. Illumicare is still the only LED lamp company that offers you a full line of high output miniature LED lamps; SCB, S8 Wedge, T5 Wedge, G5.3 BiPin, and 3 versions of G4 BiPin!
Remember, if you ever have a question as to which LED lamp will fit into a fixture, you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and someone will get back to you quickly with a solution.
