MaxLite Launches Commercial Downlight Retrofits as Modular Downlighting Solution

WEST CALDWELL, N.J. (September 21, 2018) – MaxLite introduces a new series of Commercial Downlight Retrofits featuring modular light engines, reflectors and housings to meet the requirements of a broad range of retrofit and new construction lighting projects.

The ENERGY STAR certified Commercial Downlight Retrofit family (RRC series) is a highly efficient option for upgrading existing incandescent, fluorescent and metal halide downlight fixtures to the energy savings and long life of LED. Light engines in the series range from 10W to 50W, with outputs of approximately 900 to 4,500 lumens. Customers simply choose the light engine for the desired light output, color temperature (3000K, 3500K or 4000K) and dimming protocol, and then select the compatible reflector (4”, 6,” 8,” or 9”) to meet the application need. Triac dimming drivers are available for lower wattages (10W, 15W, 20W) in the series, while 0-10V is offered across the full range, which also includes 30W and 50W engines. Unique to the RRC range is an integrated emergency back-up option that allows for a retrofit EM solution.

The Commercial Downlight Retrofit mounts easily into the existing recessed housing, or may be combined with MaxLite commercial or architectural frames for a fixture solution.

“The RRC series is a full-featured line that builds on the best qualities of our previous commercial retrofit products with improved efficacy, dimming performance and the ability to retrofit emergency management – an innovation not available in competitors’ products,” said Director of Indoor Product Management Brendan Drew. “At the same time we’ve upgraded performance, we’ve also streamlined the ordering process to make it easy for customers to identify and purchase exactly the right light engine, reflector size and dimming requirements for their lighting projects.”
