Illumination WALD STUDIO

Number 8

Today N8 Lighting stopped by our office to present their updated products.

The 400 Series:

 

A recessed downlight has the following features:

  • Dim down to 5%
  • Compatible with almost all the Lutron systems.
  • Cree led chip available in single color with lens and Warm dim options.
  • Cost under $300 ND

The 800 Series:

 

They presented the warm dim downlight with Dim 1 driver, dim to black. It is available in 4" Shallow housing, IC rated (804S housing)

* We liked the soft and nicely dimmed 1800K.

  

 

For the Wall-washer in 800 series, they recommended to use the 25° optic and use the linear spread lens to achieve a wider light spread (by 1 sqft).

The new Wall-washer delivers 800lm vs standard 350 delivered lumen.

Installation note for Wall-washer:

The lamp to be on 45° tilt, the perforated screen to be perpendicular to the wall, the axis of the magnets (90° increments) line up with the grid line on the housing (this should be done before mudding).

Monopoint:

The MPT2 has been updated with the following features:

  • 120° light beam with 360° rotation.
  • Hex-louver (15% to 20% lumen output drop).
  • 18 different interchangeable optic.
  • Accept up to 3 media, field interchangeable.
  • The remote driver can be placed up to 120ft away from the fixture when using a remote canopy. (we won't need J-box !)
  • Cost under $300 DN

*This Mono-point is the only title 24 approved remodel fixture.

*The new 10° optic coming next year.

*A new 200 Series coming soon. It has all the optic options, trims, shallow, IC rated housing, and price around $200! It's a commercial/VE product.

This fixture has a snap-in driver underneath the LED board. It accepts different lenses for different light distribution. (coming on March- April 2019)

*Currently, the lenses are not interchangeable and we have noticed a slight halo.

*it requires more work to develop this fixture (the light is leaking out from some spots

Some of their recent projects are British Gallery, Cultural society in Huson yard, and museum of fine art in Hudson.
