Description

The Boss Inca globe by Martec is an amazing new energy saving product!

The Inca is designed to replace most 100W linear halogen globes in fan lights and other 78mm R7S fittings.
A standard halogen ceiling fan uses a 100W linear R7S 78mm halogen globe, if you replace the halogen with this 12W LED you are using only about 1/8th the power but still producing the same amount of light.

The other fantastic feature of this globe is that it is dimmable with the following:

  • Martec's Specialised Trailing Edge Dimmer
  • Martec's MPLCD ceiling fan remote control
  • May also work with other trailing edge dimmers

Please Note:  This globe is not compatable with the MPLCD remote that uses the "T" shaped style receiver.
Please double check the type of receiver you have. The receiver is usually loacted in the canopy of the fan (the part attached to the ceiling).

Key Features & Benefits
  • Save up to 80% electricity compared to halogen R7S globes

Great Product - Well made metal body

SHIPPING VERY SLOW THOUGH.

Thank you for your review. Sorry to hear you believe the shipping time was slow. We dispatched the items the next business day however it may have taken extra time in delivery due to public holidays during this period.
Thanks, Heather

Great bit of kit, fits perfectly and power efficiency over 100W bulbs is fantastic. I went for the warm white which is still fairly cool in colour, from this I assume the cool white is very cool in colour.
If the glass lightshade in your fan gets stuck I have found tapping the glass or the metal collar with a rubber mallet to loosen it works very well.

Solid construction but lacking in quality control.

I bought two of these for use in the same room and there is a clear colour difference between them.

They appear to be from different manufacturing facilities as the are stamped and packaged differently. This would be fine if they ensured the same processes and components were used. They have visibly different LED's which probably explains the difference in colour.

Other than that, a quick and easy replacement for power hungry halogen bulbs.

Just don't buy two for use in the same room.

The flickering drives me mad! These are a great idea and are easy to install. They do flicker, not dramatically but constantly! The halogens that I replaced did not. These are a disappointment. I do not recommend them at all.

A good replacement for the halogen bulb! Easy to install and solidly constructed, it doesn't produce the heat of the halogen bulb and uses a lot less energy. It is brighter that the halogen bulb that it replaced, but it seems to be a little uneaten in the light distribution and not as bight as other cool white lights. The price a little high, but as there are few other quality replacements out there and it being early days, hopefully the price will come down in future.

A great replacement for the halogen bulb! The warm white was a stronger light than the halogen as well as less heat and less power. Quick and easy to install, it is well built. The only issue is the price, as it is a little high, but as with all things will come down in price in the future.

This led replacement puts out a good light until you put the fan light shade on in a standard size bedroom, which cuts the light back considerably. The Cool White color does suit the white light shade compare to the Warm White which was the Halogen color. The positive is it cooler to run without worrying about the heat build up and the running cost against the old Halogen globe. To help compensate I will be installing a led down light in the same rooms which would still be only using less then a quarter of the power [100 watts] I used to use.

This item is an easy way to convert your old halogen light (fan) to LED. The unit comes complete and ready to install.
To install the unit, remove the old Halogen bulb and insert the new LED unit into the same spring loaded sockets. Unlike the original Halogen bulb, the LED unit is far more solid, therefore far easier to apply the correct pressure needed to open up the spring loaded sockets, and because the LED unit is easier to hold during install, there is no need to wipe down the glass with alcohol to remove finger prints as with the Halogen bulb.
The LED unit comes complete with a heat sink and its size and shape permit it to be used with the original low profile light shade.
The LED unit is able to be dimmed without any extra module, providing your fan already has a dimmer unit installed and you have the accompanying remote.
The LED unit appears to run a lot cooler (light shade is barely warm after 15 minutes of running) and the color of the light is also considerably cooler, more akin to daylight as apposed to the much warmer light from Halogen bulbs.
Only time will tell as to the longevity of these LED units in a real world environment, but so far, the LED units do exactly what is stated on this website.
Great product, fast shipping, well packed, would buy from seller again.

Finally an LED replacement for those horrible linier halogen globes! Easy to fit and put out about the same (minuscule) amount of light, but for me, if I'd have known they were "warm" white, I wouldn't have bothered. When they are released in “cool" light and come down in price I'll probably buy some more.

I purchased these because a previous globe I'd ordered wasn't a flat enough profile for the fan globe holder - these fit perfectly. On the downside, they're not as warm-coloured as my other 3000k LED globes, nor as bright as expected. Obviously an upgrade from the 100W J-types that were in there, and the best globes I could find that will fit given the shallow connector depth. I can't compare directly to other LED J-types as no others fit.

seems about as bright as the halogen bulb, perhaps a little less bright. but so much less heat is generated. don't know that the heat caused rwal problems but the inside of the fan fitting where the bulb lives was blackened from the halogen bulb and I don't like that. I hope the lifespan is worth the extra cost.

I would have preferred a more neutral white option to match other LED lights in the room and at a claimed light output of 970Lm they are not as bright as Halogen or other LED lights with similar power consumption and claimed light output.

However,considering the drop in power usage and heat output and lifetime (?) these are still worth being used to replace 100W Halogens in our ceiling fans.

Can't see the value in them at $39.99 RRP and questionable at $29, but wanted to try them to compare with the $5 Chinese version. Sure they are better but no where near 6 times better for 6 times the price.

Great replacement to the 100w halogen we had. Would be good if the the color was slightly warmer but still ok. Nice even spread of light.

After visiting numerous lighting specialist stores to no avail looking for a retrofit R7S LED replacement I finally found one at this site. As i have fans with inbuilt lights i didn't want to replace the fan because of the cost of running a halogen bulb.

I have purchased 4 of these LED R7S replacement and I couldn't be more pleased. Installation was no drama, quality excellent, service and delivery fast and efficient.

Excellent!

Very convenient product.The lamps that came with our light fittings were linear halogens that generated so much heat that I very rarely turned them on for fear of heat damage.With the LED replacement I can now leave them on as security lighting.Check the physical measurements to make sure the LED lamp is not too wide for some smaller light fittings.

This product was used to replace a halogen tube in a wall light fixture. Although a very different shape and size, it fitted into the existing socket after bending the reflector back, and installation was easy. Unfortunately the brightness was lower than expected (100W halogen is approx 1800 lm, while this unit produces 970 lm), and the 3000K colour was not as "warm" (yellow) as expected.

This is by far the best LED retrofit for R7 linear halogen lamps I've seen so far. It is solidly built and the pyramid shape gives an excellent dispersion of light. The LED's give off an adequate light level and the Warm White colour is spot on. It's a shame, however, they do not do a pure white colour option which I was chasing. Power draw measured using a very accurate Power Mate Meter was closer to 10W on my 2 samples which is around 15% less than stated (not good) and a Power Factor of 0.968 (which is excellent).
The only gripe about the design is of a technical nature, there are 5 LED's on each panel which are connected directly in parallel with no dropper resister (an LED design no-no as one or more LED's can draw over there maximum design current) then the 5 panels are connected in series. This may and most likely will impact on their longevity and is the reason, coupled with the lower power draw, it only received 4 stars for Build Quality and Performance.
Delivery was quick but the website needs to include detail about the products including dimensions.
