Metaphase logo ExoLights™ Linear Illuminators
MetaBright™ Series Fluorescent Replacements ExoLight

The Metaphase ExoLight is the most efficient and economical LED replacement technology available for the fluorescent tube.  The Metaphase ExoLight™ is best applied where a highly intense, yet widely diffused light beam is required.
Metaphase ExoLights produce whiter, brighter, and flicker-free illumination compared with fluorescent technology, with a 75,000 hour LED lifetime expectancy.  Isotropic lensing produces extremely even illumination and eliminates the glare and hot spots inherent in LEDs.  The ExoLight is "tube-like" in form and mimics the softly diffused output of fluorescent fixtures like no other ordinarily diffused LED fixture can.  These fixtures produce higher power and more stable output than fluorescents while featuring the long lifetime expectancy and low cost of ownership of LEDs.
