Visionsmith Introduces ReLamp, LED Upgrade for Halogen Fresnels

Visionsmith has introduced ReLamp, an LED replacement for halogen bulbs in Fresnel fixtures of all brands and sizes.

Visionsmith said ReLamp is not a retrofit, just a globe replacement. It comes in sizes for most common Fresnels. Each LED module fits into the same socket as the halogen globe. The user pulls out the the halogen and puts in the LED in its place.

In some fixtures, the reflector should be unscrewed to make room for the LED. Also, in order to achieve a brighter than halogen performance, users have to opt for an upgrade of the Fresnel lens.

With the ReLamp 1K, the user can fit ten lights on a single power strip. That would be the same light output as 10,000 watts of halogen on one power strip, negating the need for power generators.

ReLamp LEDs work on the same AC dimmers as halogen. They will dim all the way down to a night light, with no color shift while remaining flicker-free.

The light looks exactly like tungsten or daylight halogen, but without the heat.

The list price is under $700.00.
