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 Switch From A Distance

Lamp Post Electrical have realised that one of the fastest growing areas of electrical control is that of the wireless electrical control systems and are pleased to promote the Wisedim Kit – A 4 Channel dimmable wireless switching system. Wireless switching systems are likely to become a major force in the home and in industry over the next few years as the different option become more obvious and the market develops the switches and controls, which will accept a wireless control signal. The Wisebox switching system can already control switching of lights, garage doors and water features as well as a host of other options around the home and garden and Lamp Post Electrical has been very pleased with their supply of this item and the Wisedim Kit is a good extension of the market range.

The Wisedim Kit is as the name suggests a wireless dimmer system and contains a receiver that uses 4 channels each independent of the next and rated at 700 watt each, which are all capable of dimming a separate lighting circuit. The kit is easy to install and can therefore act as the perfect replacement to your traditional dimmer switches around the home. The system has the ability to remember the previous setting so when switched on again will return the lighting system to the previous levels of light. The system can also be used as a switching system on any of the independent channels so that it can be used with LED or fluorescent lighting fittings, which are not dimmable. Lamp Post Electrical has been particularly pleased with the remote key fob which is used to control the system as this is easy to carry and very easy to operate and has the back up of a wall mounted switch with seven switches of which four operate the individual circuits and the other three work on the functions of two circuits on, four circuits on or all circuits off.

Lamp Post Electrical have noted that the wisebox kits allow a simple dimming system that can be operated from the comfort of the armchair and will allow a completely different approach to lighting within the home. This system now allows the user to use light as a decoration as well as a system of being able to see what you are doing. Certainly the system can be changed from a reading lighting requirement to a comfortable level for listening to music or watching the TV but now it is possible to use coloured lights to paint the room so that the ambience meets the time of the day or the mood of the user. This may sound a little strange but a person’s mood changes during the day and it has been found that the strong active lighting systems that match the early morning activeness recedes during the day as the person’s body prepares for rest and the lighting systems change accordingly then Wisedim allows this to be achieved from the armchair.

Lamp Post Electrical have been delighted with the Wisedim system and encourages the reader to look at their web site to get a full view of the system and if there are any queries to send them an email or give them a call and work out just what can be achieved.

Metal Black Nickel Electrical Sockets And Switches For A Perfect Finish

Electrical Counter is pleased to promote the BG Nexus range of electrical sockets and switches for use both in the house and in the office or work place. The company is particularly pleased to be able to stock a complete range of fittings than cover virtually every eventuality of usage. The BG Nexus range has been developed to provide a very attractive design finish that will stand out most impressively when fitted into the décor of the building. The Metal Black Nickel finish is a very subtle colour and whilst distinctive it is not an “In your face” finish and will tone into not only a modern finished building but will not be wasted in less contemporary surroundings. The finish of all the metal fascia’s is such that they are a polished smooth surface which gives very clean lines and simple finish and they all match a basic standard design with no sharp edges but all rounded corners and sides.

Electrical Counter notes that the system is an ideal one to be used where there is a requirement to keep the whole place clean and within the bounds. The materials of the metal surface are such that they retain their initial properties over a long period and do not deteriorate with time. They are simple and when cleaned with bacterial wipes will remove all bugs that may be transferred to them and they pick up less bugs in the first place as the smooth surface is less attractive to their collection. This makes them ideal for usage in the kitchen or office and they are quite acceptable in places where there is a serious chance of bug and disease transfer.

The full BG range of switches and sockets have allowed the BG Nexus brand to become a major range of products and Electrical Counter is delighted to be able to stock the full range available for delivery on an immediate call off basis. The Metal Black Nickel range is at present a most attractive range not only because of their design but also because of their price. At present Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to offer the whole range at vastly discounted prices, which makes their usage competitive with some of the cheapest models on sale. Some typical examples show the Metal Black Nickel dimmer switch on sale at £9.99 instead of the usual £31.51 whilst the simple Black Nickel light switch is on sale for £2.91 against a usual price of £14.41. The overall cost of the sockets and switches being in the range 25% to 33% of the original cost.

Electrical Counter have an excellent web site in which all the different ranges of Nexus metal switches can be seen and if there are any further queries the experience of a well trained staff is available by telephone to answer any queries. Electrical Counter pride themselves on the fact that whilst the internet warehouse provides good quality materials at cheap prices it has also retained the experience essential to run this business and to make sure that it is available to company employee and customer alike.

Stainless Steel Gets Switched On With The Electrical Counter

The market for electrical switches and sockets grows larger each day and it is now a possible to change the appearance of the electrical service systems within a house or office regularly without breaking the bank. Electrical Counter has developed a full market range of switches and sockets to meet what is likely to be an ever increasing market place. The company has developed their Internet marketing system to be able to supply the fullest range of electrical equipment at a moment’s notice off the shelf and Electrical Counter is pleased to be able to meet almost all requirements at a time to suit the customer. The electrical market demands instant attention with orders required tomorrow and quality of the highest order and safety standards to match. Electrical Counter can deal with all of these as a matter of routine and has also been able to develop prices which match any company and are usually cheaper. Some of the latest prices for switches and sockets are only 30% of what they were a short time ago.

The Stainless Steel range is one of the ranges that have gained from this reduction in prices and Electrical Counter is pleased to have been able to negotiate with their manufacturer’s rates, which are a great advantage to the industry, the customer and the supplier. The stainless steel ranges are quite interesting and do give a completely new outlook on the design and installation of the electrical service systems. The stainless can be of a brushed steel type of finish which looks good and lasts particularly well, it handles well and the fitting is easy and there is even a range of screwless face plates which have nothing to break the face plate but the rounded switch toggle. There is also stainless steel of a semi polished or plain finish, which again look good and provide a different appearance. The brushed steel switches are particularly good for their resilience as they will last for a long time without any deterioration. The attributes of stainless steel are many and obvious and now metals can be used safely in switches and sockets the options are endless.

Electrical Counter considers the stainless steel range as ideal for the office and workplace as the finished effect goes particularly well with the latest designs of the modern office. The Nexus Metal switches and sockets fit well into the dado rail system which allows the service to be placed just where required for easy access and shortest cable links. Appearance is everything these days and the quickest way to change the appearance in a building is to change the fitments that are present. The electrical service fitments from switches and sockets to data and telephone points are easy to change and these will make a great deal of difference to the overall view of the building. No decorating is required and the whole operation will be carried out in a very limited time but the results can be present for years to come.

The Electrical Counter Promote The Advantages Of Elnur Storage Heaters

The Electrical Counter have built up an excellent range of products to be supplied directly via the internet from their excellent web site, the base of the business is as the name suggests, anything that the electrical trade might require usually, off the shelf. If the product required is not obvious on the web site then an excellent call service will establish whether and when it can be delivered. This is certainly the case with the Elnur Storage Heaters, which The Electrical Counter company is very pleased to supply from its standard in-stock store. This resurgent business in storage heaters has developed because of the inspired development of the latest Elnur Storage Heaters. These Elnur Storage Heaters are now very efficient in energy usage from a low cost electrical source and they come in a range of sizes from 1.7KW to 3.4 KW power rating and also in a range of manual or automatic controls.

The Elnur Storage Heaters are of a superb slim line design that fit very well in any standard room and the small size of the units mean that they do not take up the whole of the wall space. The controls are easily accessible and the units acne work as a stand-alone unit or fixed to link in with other storage heaters as part of a fully controlled central heating system. The Electrical Counter is delighted with the quality of the Storage Heaters and the complete range of manual and automatic units that are available which enable the installer such a wide range of options. The safety systems are such that the Storage Heaters have automatic safety power cut outs when the grills, where the heat is released, are covered with clothes or other items. The Electrical Counter supply Storage Heaters where there is an automatic control system on the heat input to the heat sink so that just the right amount of heat is input into the storage heater for later usage. Elnur have developed the range of Storage Heaters to meet all occasions and the sophistication levels are now so good that they heat input on the best units is controlled so that it takes account of the weather so that heat is not wasted in periods of warm weather or left short in periods of excessive cold. If this is added to a full central control system the maximum flexibility in heating control is possible, Hyco Water Heaters are also another great addition to the system in order to maximise your homes overall efficiency.

The Electrical Counter is pleased to note that these units fit extremely well in conditions where there is a surfeit of electrical power from a solar panel system where the daytime electricity is basically the property of the householder during the day and hence is free.

The market is ever increasing and the boiler fuel systems are not only suffering price rises from the energy suppliers but things like gas checks are now advised annually for house owners and are imposed by law on the house rental business. The Electrical Counter notes that the costs of each system when all the equipment costs, energy costs and service costs are taken into account are very close. The Electrical Counter welcomes any enquiries on the use of Elnur Storage Heaters.

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.

Lamp Post Now Stock Full In-Line Manrose Extractor Fan Range

Lamp Post Electrical supply all electrical equipment for the power circuits of the house and office and the Internet has allowed them to build a great business, which supplies the market at prices which are well below those of the standard retail outlets. Their typical website is both informative and descriptive so that a good idea of the product can be quickly gained. Any further information can be gained by e-mail or phone. The delivery service is what the customer wants it to be, but Lamp Post Electrical prides themselves on getting the goods quickly and safely to the customer.

The extraction fan business has become more and more complex over the years as the pollution rules and regulations have become stronger and this will change still further in the next few years as environmental and social conditions become stricter. The rules on extraction fans for the bathroom and washroom areas have always been strict because of the danger of water and electricity mixing and passing electrical currents to earth. The introduction of the 17th edition RCD controlled circuits has helped matters, but most installations still use off site extractor pumps to get rid of the unwanted steam and smells.

Lamp Post Electrical have supplied the Manrose CFD200T in line extractor fan for some time and it is a very reliable piece of equipment. The pump works on a typical 4 inch diameter extraction tube that connects to the waste exit of the bathroom to the extraction fan itself. The power of the extractor fan is such that it extracts some 85 cubic metres per hour very quietly and continuously. The fan is fitted in lime and into the line and extraction is not a problem as it will deal with all the typical problems that bathroom extractor fans may have during their normal operation. It should clear away all steam developed by the shower or the bath and leave the room dry, it will also remove obnoxious smells.

Lamp Post Electrical supply all the fittings and fixtures for the operation and the only real problem is where to fix the extractor fan into its final position as this obviously needs to be outside the bathroom. It can be fitted below the floor or above the ceiling but there will be a need for a suitably sized space and also the requirements in the case of an emergency so that future access may be possible to repair or replace easily. All that then remains is a suitable access for the extracted gases to be passed outside of the building through a tube and grill. If there are no suitable access routes then there are some extractor fans which can work in the bathroom or wash room environment without the need for the ultimate protection but these must be mounted so that they cannot be reached when standing in the bath or shower.

Manrose Centrifugal Extractor Fans Provide A Lamp Post Electrical Supplies Stalwart

Manrose are a company with a good history record in supplying everyday fans for the business and household market place and Lamp Post Electrical Supplies are delighted to keep stocking one of the stalwarts of the extraction fan markets in order to supply this ever changing market place. The Manrose centrifugal fan range has almost become a standard as it is able to deal with waste gases and extraction smells produced in the appropriate places. The centrifugal fan is the major part of this design with a central motor and controller which is built with fans with totally sealed bearing sets which require zero maintenance and bearing supports which last a long time. The centrifugal fan is basically a workhorse of the commercial or household market providing a strong fan which will operate continuously and effectively over many years. The areas where they come into their own are the commercial kitchen where vast quantities of waste gases need to be extracted (although there are smaller areas where they are equally useful).

Manrose Extractor Fans are recommended by Lamp Post Electrical Supplies as it is designed to aid and work effectively in pushing waste gases over long distances without a severe loss of pressure and therefore a loss of effective waste gas removal. They are very good at overcoming the pressure restrictions that have by nature been built into bends and grilles that may be inserted over the trunking range without serious reduction in pressure. This is particularly useful in some of the most modern commercial kitchens where the waste gas source is easy to pinpoint but the gases have then to be moved over long distances to extract then from the room. The reasons they have to be moved so far can be many but the usual reasons are that care must be taken not to remove the kitchen smells and then pump them straight outside the room where people are working or where they can percolate into a neighbouring house and remove the problem from one place to a neighbouring area. A failure in this region can bring problems resulting arguments with neighbours and potential guests or even prosecution by the local government officials. Any good workhorse requires a good working life and the Manrose pump has a normal working life of around 40,000 hours, obviously for Lamp Post Electrical Supplies replacement of kitchen extractor fans will not occur overnight but there is an ever increasing market place.

The centrifugal fan is a system that works well from small fans to the very large fans and they are extremely quiet in operation with virtually no vibration problems because of the centrally balanced motor. The smaller fans are aimed at the smaller markets and are aimed at bathrooms and toilets as well as small household kitchens where waste gas extraction is required.

Lamp Post Electrical Supplies – http://www.lamppostelectrical.co.uk – are proud to stock a full range of Manrose fans which can be delivered swiftly and effectively to repair breakdowns or deal with pressing problems and will be pleased to offer advice as and when required.
