Eaton has launched the Halo Surface Mount light-emitting diode (LED) Downlight (SMD), an ultra-low profile, surface-mounting luminaire featuring modern and elegant stylings with exceptional value. The new downlight can easily and quickly be installed directly into drywall without the need for a recessed housing or a junction box, ideal for closets, storage areas, attics, basements and other locations where plenum space is limited.
ďHomeowners, builders and buyers are continually looking for lighting solutions that provide the latest in technology, versatility and energy efficiency without sacrificing a modern look,Ē said Glenn Siegel, director, marketing and product management, Eatonís Lighting Division. ďThe new Halo SMD series combines the high performance of Eatonís LED technology with quick installation and a flush finish for the style homeowners want.Ē
Designed for residential and commercial installations, the Halo SMD family is available in 4- (SMD4) or 6-inch (SMD6) sizes, with up to 810 lumens for the SMD4 and up to 815 lumens for the SMD6. The family is offered in both round and square models and is available in a variety of correlated color temperatures (CCTs) including 2,700 Kelvin (K), 3,000 K, 3,500 K, 4,000 K and 5,000 K and in a 90 color rendering index (CRI). The fixtures are dimmable down to five percent with many leading-edge and trailing-edge dimmers.
In addition to installation into drywall (Direct Mount versions), the SMD4 and SMD6 are also designed to install into 4-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch recessed housings, as well as many 3-1/2-inch and 4-inch square, octagon and round junction boxes. The SMD product line is wet location listed for showers and outdoor protected ceilings. The family is a modern solution for new construction, remodel or retrofit applications.
The new downlight features a LED quick wiring connector that meets high efficacy code requirements and is compliant with the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) standard 70 as well as National Electrical Code Sections 410.16(A)(3) and 410.16(C)(5).
