Cooper Lighting, a division of Cooper Industries, Ltd. (NYSE:CBE), announces that its Halo® LED recessed downlight is the first in the industry to meet stringent ENERGY STAR® requirements for solid state lighting (SSL) luminaires. The Halo LED Downlight's performance earns an ENERGY STAR qualification by meeting the ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Solid State Lighting Luminaires: Eligibility Criteria - Version 1.0 for Category A - Recessed Downlights. ENERGY STAR is a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy helping consumers and organizations save money and protect the environment through energy-efficient products and practices.
Providing excellent color quality with a rendering of over 80 CRI and a warm white color temperature range of 3045K, the Halo LED recessed fixture consumes less than 15 watts and provides over 697 lumens (with the specular reflector trim). The high efficiency of the Halo LED downlight delivers greater than 40 lumens per watt—comparable light distribution and better light output than a 65 watt BR30 lamp or 18 watt compact fluorescent fixture. (The minimum requirement is 35 lumens per watt with a minimum of 575 lumens.) The Halo LED fixture delivers over 90% of the lumens within the 0-60 degree downlight “cone of light” zone, well over the minimum requirement of 75%. Its superior optical design provides good cutoff (50 degrees) and low glare.
The IC-rated, AIR-TITE™ recessed fixture exceeds high-efficacy requirements for California's Title 24, with energy savings in excess of 75% when compared with a 65 watt incandescent lamp. Virtually maintenance-free, the Halo LED fixture is constructed to provide greater than 70% of its initial light over 50,000 hours of use. (The Halo LED fixture could deliver over 70% of the initial light over 20 years when used six hours per day.) Plus, for additional energy savings, the LED module is dimmable to approximately 15% using standard AC incandescent analog dimmers and approximately 5% with dimmers that have a low-end minimum brightness adjustment.
Ideally suited for commercial, hospitality, healthcare, retail and residential applications, the downlight accepts a number of trim options including reflectors, baffles, and lensed trim models. UL 1598 listed with a three year warranty, the LED downlight also exceeds Title 24-2008 effective mid-2009.
