MaxLite has introduced Direct-Lit LED Flat Panels to offer energy-efficient lighting solutions for medical facilities, hospitals, libraries, schools and offices and other institutional and commercial spaces.
The Direct-Lit LED Flat Panels are engineered to substitute fluorescent luminaires. They are suitable for deployment into T-bar grid ceilings and offer superior color rendering with a color rendering index of 85 and lumen output, while reducing maintenance expenditures and time. Their proprietary LED binning assures consistency of uniformed color.

MaxLite offers two models of Direct-Lit LED Flat Panels such as the cool white 5000 K and the warm white 3500 K model. The Direct-Lit LED 1'X4' flat panel consumes merely 45 W, while the Direct-Lit LED 2'X2' flat panel is available in 45 W and 60 W models. The Direct-Lit LED 2'X4' flat panels are 60 W panels.
The panels are completely dimmable and can be used with daylight harvesting systems, timers, motion sensors and building controls. With a power factor of more than 98%, they work on 120-277 V systems. Their operating life is approximately 50,000 h.
The aluminum-made housings and LED back panels offer thermal control and heat sink capabilities. The panels have white polycarbonate-made translucent lens and their compact profile has a length of 3" that includes the control box. They are cETL and ET certified and comply with RoHS.
Pat Treadway, who serves as National Product Marketing Manager at MaxLite, stated that the Direct-Lit LED Flat Panels consume 35% lesser energy than its proven Edge-Lit LED Panels.
