The MR16 is a multifaceted reflector designed for numerous applications where a directional light is required, for example track or recessed lighting. This type of light bulb is compatible with a wide range of light fittings; which will function with the majority of standard low voltage MR16 LED drivers. However some existing MR16 LED transformers can cause problems for LED versions of this lamp due to the transformer minimum load requirements not being met.
MR16 LED bulbs draw a significantly reduced amount of power compared to halogen bulbs; therefore the load is not sufficient to run from a traditional halogen low wattage transformer, this means a replacement MR16 LED Driver/Transformer is required. Should the incorrect MR16 LED transformer be installed it can cause the lamps to flicker, strobe or randomly shut down. Dimmers, relays and related-controls also require minimum loads and consequently might not operate correctly with some LED replacement bulbs.
The correct MR16 LED Driver/Transformer is an investment for your MR16 LED bulb ensuring maximum lifespan and perfect operation. With LED lighting power supplies you are guaranteed our MR16 LED drivers are designed to perform with the latest LED technology.
