LED Recessed Ceiling 4 Inch Dimmable Can Lights Provide the Upside to Down Lighting

LEDtronics, Inc., with more than 30 years of leadership in innovative LED lighting solutions, announces the newest member to its series of high-brightness, energy-efficient retrofit LED Recessed Downlights. The RDL32-4-12W series are Energy Star and UL/cUL listed, dimmable ceiling can-style downlights ideal for indoor use in architectural/décor lighting and commercial applications: hospitals & medical facilities, hotels and resorts. They only use 12 Watts of energy and can replace halogen bulbs up to 75 watts — a tremendous energy savings of up to 80%.

The RDL32-4-12W series fits 4-inch ceiling can openings. They come with pigtail wires connected to a quick-disconnect connector attached to a standard E26 Edison male screw base connector that can be detached and hard-wired into a two-wire ceiling can fixture connection. A GU24 base connector option is available for qualified customers. RDL32-4-12W has a white color body and lip ring. It has a softly frosted, white-diffused, flat-precision, polycarbonate lens that directs light in a wide 90 degree floodlight illumination pattern, while providing high-brightness of 910 to 980 lumens, depending on LED light Color. The RDL32-4-12W series operates on a voltage input of 120VAC, offering long-lasting durability and easy drop-in installation in existing standard 26mm Edison screw-base ceiling cans.

These new state-of-the-art LED recessed dimmable downlights are available in three white LED color temperatures: Warm White 3000K to 3200K, Natural White 4000K to 4500K and Pure White 5000K to 5500K range, akin to halogen white (other color temperatures available for qualified applications). As well, it boasts outstanding color fidelity with a CRI greater than 80 that enhances color nuances. In addition, these recessed downlights maintain 70 percent or greater of LED lumens at 40,000 hours of 24/7 operation — a lifespan many times longer than the equivalent halogen or other incandescent bulbs!

Because LEDs have no filament, their solid-state design renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes. These ROHS-compliant UL/cUL listed dimmable retrofit LED recessed downlights have no harmful mercury or other toxic elements like CFL bulbs; and unlike incandescent bulbs, LEDs do not emit large amounts of heat, and little to no ultraviolet or infrared light. This makes them perfect for use in museums, hospitals, offices or areas where heat and UV radiation might degrade the surroundings (such as illuminating valuable artwork, wine cellars or food service areas). The fact that they run remarkably cool also means they greatly reduce building air-conditioning load on energy.

These economical, high-quality 4-inch LED recessed dimmable downlights are perfect in non-wet outdoor or dimming indoor flood lighting applications such as ceiling-can downlight fixtures as security and emergency lights, general/architectural and landscape lighting, retail store, display case fixtures and cabinet lighting, sign spot lighting, OEM equipment lighting, bio-medical and medical applications, museums or theatrical-effects lighting. Since LED lights are much more energy efficient than halogens and other filament lamps, these LED recessed downlights are perfect operating with an alternative or renewable energy resource such as solar or wind power in cold or warm environments.

In addition, these LED downlights are Energy Star listed, making them eligible for rebate and tax incentive programs.

The RDL32-4-12W LED recessed dimmable downlights come with a LEDtronics 5-year warranty, and are available through LEDtronics distributors. Retail price is $29.95 each. Quantity discounts are available to qualified distributors. Availability is stock to 4-6 weeks for large order requirements.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies Light Up With Wylex Consumer Units

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies now stock a fantastic range of electrical goods for supply to the power distribution business and the Wylex range of products are great example of just how good that range is. Wylex are particularly noted for their range of high class consumer units and the quality belies the fact that they are extremely competitively priced and of a major significance to the market place. Lamp Post Electrical Supplies can supply the full range of Wylex consumer units and if the user cannot find what is required on the internet then a simple phone call to the company will get the full details of the range of the products and also give a delivery date. Invariably the products can be supplied off the shelf.

The Wylex consumer units are extremely well made and the choice of units is almost too large but this market place is difficult as there are so many different requirements and Wylex and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies are pleased to be able to supply all the differing needs.

One of the most pleasing things from the point of view of Lamp Post Electrical Supplies is that the Wylex consumer units now have so much versatility built into them. All of the Wylex consumer units conform to the 17th Edition regulations and all new consumer units are fitted to these regulations but Wylex have moved on and offer the user the ability to introduce a far greater degree of protection than the regulations require. The Wylex consumer units can be either a split load system where certain circuits are ganged together with each gang to be protected by a Residual Current Device (RCD) or they can be individually protected circuits with an RCD on each or more preferably a Residual Current Breaker with Overload Protection (RCBO) micro circuit breaker on each circuit. The RCD protects against current leakage to earth and the RCBO protects against current leakage to earth and also overcurrent conditions as well. The idea that every circuit is individually protected by an RCBO is something that Lamp Post Electrical –http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – is very keen to promote. The savings in injury and death from electrocution cannot be underestimated and is worth the effort and expense, although the expense is not at all large.
