LED bulbs in IKEA track lighting systems lie SANSA or LINA – SM2YER Goran’s Homepage

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/05/01

It is easy to replace the halogen bulbs in IKEA track lighting systems like IKEA SANSA or IKEA LINA by LED bulbs (Sansa uses 5.3mm spaced MR16 fitting compatible with both GX5.3 and GU5.3 bulbs, I think LINA uses the same): [WayBack] SM2YER Goran’s Homepage.

There are many other fittings; [WayBack] LED fitting welke moet ik kiezen? | Lampfittingen overzicht has a good list, mentioning these:

  • E14
  • E27
  • GU10
  • MR11 (which has slightly thicker pins than G4 and GU4)
  • G4 and GU4
    (with varying pin thickness)
  • G5.3, GX5.3, GU5.3
    (with varying pin thickness)
  • G6.35, GX6.535, GY6.35, GZ6.35
    (with varying pin thickness)
  • MR16
  • G9
  • GU10
  • AR111

The problem is the power supplies. They do not like the low wattage, or even burn with low wattage. Two solutions:

  • Use at least one 10W bulb, or
  • Use a 12V power supply from a laptop or other device that delivers far less power.
