Need to replace recessed ceiling lights? LEDtronics’ new color-controlled solution claims energy savings of up to 75% over fluorescents

by Brianna Crandall — December 18, 2018 — LED solutions pioneer LEDtronics recently announced its latest series of tunable, multimode LED troffer luminaires with selectable wattage and white color temperature. The UL-listed troffers feature standby dimming as well as an adjustable occupancy/daylight sensor.

Available in 2×2 and 2×4-foot (ft.) sizes, the “CLT” series of tunable LED recessed troffer lights is engineered to replace standard drop-ceiling troffer and parabolic fixtures in recessed luminaires. Their slim profile is designed to fit seamlessly into standard dropped troffer and parabolic fixtures in most T-bar ceilings to deliver adjustable ambient lighting for interior spaces.

Offering the flexibility to customize wattage in 5-watt increments and adjust color temperature from 3000 Kelvin (warm white) to 5000 Kelvin (pure white), these recessed troffers have the capability to provide desired ambiance in an industrial or commercial space. Occupancy and ambient light sensing increase visual comfort and energy savings in offices, retail spaces, hotels, resorts, conferences rooms, classrooms, and healthcare environments.

According to the company, the Title 24-compliant troffers also feature a fully adjustable occupant and daylight sensor, as well as standby dimming level and time period. They also offer the option of external 0-10V dimmers (separate from programmed standby dimming).

The tunable LED recessed troffers are offered in wattage ranges of 20-35w for the 2×2 and 35-50w for the 2×4 size. They operate within a voltage range of 100-277VAC, delivering a total light output ranging from 2677 lumens at 20 watts, to 6478 lumens at 50 watts.

LEDtronics says that the luminaires offer energy savings of up to 75 percent over fluorescent fixtures and tubes. As an example, a LEDtronics 2×2 ft. troffer luminaire at 35 watts replaces fixtures with two to three 32W fluorescent T8 tubes, while the 2×4 ft. at 50 watts replaces fixtures with four 32W T8 fluorescent tubes. Additionally, the minimal lamp heat output of LEDs over that produced by fluorescent tubes keeps temperatures in offices and hallways optimally lower, saving building air-conditioning costs.

The solid-state design of the “CLT” LED troffer lights renders them impervious to shock, vibration, frequent switching and environmental extremes, while RoHS compliance ensures they are free of toxic metals such as lead or mercury. Their LM80-rated SMD LEDs provide high-lumen and high-CRI uniform illumination in a 120° wide beam, free of ultraviolet or infrared (UV/IR) radiation or radio-frequency (RF) interference.

In addition to directly replacing fluorescent troffers in most standard recessed T-bar ceilings, the LEDtronics CLT luminaire series can also be surface mounted with optional aluminum surface mounting frames, or ceiling suspended with optional steel wire cables.

The LEDtronics “CLT” series of tunable and multimode LED recessed troffer lights comes with an unconditional five-year US factory warranty, and is available through LEDtronics distributors. Quantity discounts are available, and other product variations are available for qualified volume orders.
