Eaton's LED Technology Adds Brightness Control, Up to 80 Percent Energy Savings for Halo Downlighting Solutions
Press release date: January 29, 2014
PEACHTREE CITY, Ga. … Power management company Eaton today announced the introduction of new Halo Surface LED Downlights (SLD) from its Cooper Lighting division. Ideal for new construction, remodel and retrofit projects, the Halo downlights incorporate WaveStream™ light-emitting diode (LED) technology, resulting in the first LED surface product to perform and look like a traditional recessed downlight. The new products offer an annual energy savings of up to 80 percent when compared to a traditional incandescent fixture.
“Our new series of Halo surface-mounted LED downlights offer unique design freedom combined with mainstream value,” said Mark Eubanks, president, Eaton’s Cooper Lighting division. “The WaveStream LED technology allows us to provide downlighting and wall-mount solutions that are efficient and cost-effective, while bringing installation convenience to satisfy both commercial and residential applications.”
WaveStream LED technology transforms the LED point source into a highly efficient luminous panel. A patented optical system maximizes the amount of light injected into the WaveStream panel, improving luminaire efficiency. Laser-precise AccuAim™ optics arranged in exacting patterns provide unparalleled brightness control while delivering the maximum amount of light on task. The Halo SLD luminaires’ resulting directional control delivers the cone-of-light distribution typically found in recessed downlights, while providing an ultra-thin (0.7-inch), surface-mounted solution to satisfy more application needs.
The Halo SLD luminaires are available in 4- and 6-inch models and can be installed into standard 3.5- and 4-inch junction boxes or retrofit into compatible 4-, 5- or 6-inch aperture insulated ceilings (IC) and non-IC recessed housings.
The Halo SLD products have been designed to serve as convenient and efficient upgrades to existing recessed downlighting, easily installing in locations where only a junction box is present or where plenum space is limited, like hard ceilings and walls. Halo SLD products can also serve as a replacement for surface-mounted products and used in wet location ceilings, such as showers and protected outdoor ceilings.
For added savings and convenience these AIR-TITE™, ENERGY-STAR®-qualified fixtures consume only 12.5 watts of energy, can last up to 22 years and may provide up to $400 in total savings over the fixture’s lifespan (based on six hours daily use at $0.115/kilowatt hour). They are available in 3000 Kelvin Correlated Color Temperature with 80 or 90 Color Rendering Index options, offer dimming capabilities and can integrate seamlessly into advance lighting control systems.
