Downlight fixtures offer balanced light distribution
The Halo ML4 light-emitting diode (LED) downlighting system illuminates a variety of government and institutional spaces. The modular 2-inch round and square LED pinhole downlights are also suitable for commercial and residential locations. Power management company Eaton is offering the line of fixtures.
The compact recessed downlight system includes a housing, LED module and a choice of a field-interchangeable, round or square, 2-inch aperture pinhole trim. Buyers can choose from multiple aperture styles, optical distributions and finishes.
The system provides a range of lighting solutions for new construction and retrofit applications including government, office and institutional spaces. The fixtures can also be used in single and multi-family dwellings and hospitality and retail facilities.
“The comprehensive Halo ML4 system combinations offer solutions for ambient, task, wall wash and accent needs, providing useful distributions for a balanced lighting layout,” says Glenn Siegel, director, marketing and product management, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “As a choice for projects wanting the performance of low-voltage tungsten-halogen, 50-watt MR16 lamps, the system exceeds performance.”
The ML4 system is designed to deliver the optical control, color quality and punch and sparkle associated with tungsten-halogen sources. As an LED system, it offers customers energy savings, long life and sustainability.
The system is small in size, but powerful in performance, delivering 900 lumens. The round and square trims (TL4 series) are available in open, lens and lens wall wash styles. Choose from narrow flood (25 degrees), flood (40 degrees) and wide flood (55 degrees) optical distribution that can be installed/changed in the field. An optional media holder attaches directly to the optic and accepts industry-standard, 2-inch diameter lens, providing additional creative control.
The compact trim assembly installs from below the ceiling into Halo’s standard, shallow and ultra-shallow, 4-inch line-voltage housings, as well as other compatible housings. The fixture’s trims attach to housings magnetically for simple installation. This allows for minor adjustments and accommodates real-world construction tolerances.
The fixture family delivers good color quality. Fixtures are available in 2700 Kelvin (K), 3000K, 3500K and 4000K correlated color temperatures (CCT), satisfying government, residential and commercial needs. With a color rendering index (CRI) of 90 minimum, the LED downlights can be used to meet the IECC and California Title 24 high efficacy luminaire compliance and California voluntary lamp standards. Most combinations are also ENERGY STAR-certified.
Trims are offered in four electroplated designer finishes including brushed nickel, oil-rubbed bronze, brushed copper and German bronze to complement interior finishes. Select trims include damp and wet location-listed options for showers and outdoor covered spaces and are designed to last 50,000 hours at 70 percent lumen maintenance.
If plenum space is limited, the series offers round- and square-surface-mount housings that install directly to various junction boxes. The housings are available in white and black.
