CSL

Today CSL visited our office to show us their recessed fixtures.

Eco Series

While we didn't see the ECO series in person, we got a lot of information about it.

The Eco series is their less expensive line. The fixtures are around $80 DN. The fixtures we looked at had an 800 lumen output.


Acrobat

The Acrobat Series is a little more expensive. There is no upcharge on finishes. Can do anodized finishes. This line is ranges from $100-$170 DN depending on size.

The 10 Degree optic has a bit of field on it. It also comes in 30, 50, and 80 degree optics. Available in up to 2,000 lumens.

This line comes trimless for plaster and wood.

CSL has a standard driver that is 0-10V, forward phase, and reverse phase all in one package. This driver dims down to 2%. With a Lutron driver, the fixtures can dim down to below 1%.


Gyro Shift

The Gyro Shift comes in 10, 30, and 50 degree beam spreads. It has a TIR style optic. Available in 1,350 or 2,450 lumen output for each gyro fixture.

ACUITY BRANDS

Today, we looked at their new wall-washer and downlight from the Aculux and Indy brands.

INDY: L SERIES family, generation 4

The new L series features a low profile housing, a semi-speculate white cone reflector which provides more light laterally. This family is in a midrange category (between Aculux and Juno).

The Indy L series has 2 cone shaped reflectors:

The Regular Parabolic: for a traditional quiet ceiling

The Hyperbolic: for a true silent ceiling with over 20% more lumen/watt, almost 45° visual cut-off.

ACULUX: 3" Precision Recessed

This new 3" lensed wallwasher lumen output is similar to competitors 4" fixtures

  • Available in 900lm up to 3000lm.
  • Warm-dim is available as an option
  • The trimless fixture can be fit in a millwork ceiling with a 1.25" to 1.65" thickness.

They presented the 2000lm option and placed it 2ft and 3ft apart from the wall. The fixtures maintained well uniform wall washing.

In Aculux Universal, the adjustable and wallwash lenses are interchangeable. But, with the lensed fixture only the fixed and adjustable lenses can be swapped.

The DN price for 500lm fixture is around $175 and $200 for 2000lm option+trim. The cost for shallow housing is around $100.

PreciseLED

PreciseLED is new to ELA. They are located on Long Island.

 

ZENLITE

Zenlite is an in-wall product that goes over the joists and is in line with gypsum. The mudplate is made out of PVC. This is advantageous because the PVC doesn't retain heat. The fixture can be installed with or without the lens in. The lens is laser cut and pre-installed before shipping so on the site, they just need to peel off the protective tape. The LED strip is typically installed beforehand.

Available in 1" and 2" versions.

It costs around $48/ft (DN price).

  

ARC:

The curvable extrusion with a flexible lens. The 15°  radius is the tightest they can go. The curved product is edge-lit (2 LED strips facing each other) with a silicone lens.

Zenlight tile also exists. The lens is poured into place. You can walk or drive on the Zenlight tile fixture.

  

The maximum running length is 100ft.

It costs around $100/ft (DN price).

They also have an asymmetric Zenlite as well.

*the straight and the curve products are using different LED chips and won't be mixed.


DOWNLIGHTS:

The downlights available as trimmed and trimless with IC and Non-IC rated housings, 45° tilt and 360° rotation, and interchangeable lenses.

The Novation is their new 3" downlight/wallwasher . It has one of the shallowest air-tight housing on the market, 18" X 2.44", an interchangeable adjustable downlight and wallwasher lens. The housing has a unique copper piece which acts as a heatsink and therefore allows the housing to be this shallow.

  

*The shallow housing has only 30° tilt adjustment.

*They use CREE LED chip. The LED head is screwed-in and field replaceable (great for changing CCT).

*The trimmed fixture is shower rated.

They do not currently have a trimless option for millwork fixtures but they are currently working on it.

*They do have their own line of drivers but their products work with others as well.

Their wallwasher has an interesting lens design.

It's good to keep in mind, the piece with get really hard and make it difficult for on-site optic adjustment (there is a very tight space to access the clip for adjustments).


DIM TO WARM TAPE:

We also looked at their dim to warm tape. This tape has alternating chips to achieve the desired effect. All of PreciseLED's tapes are a minimum of 90 CRI.


 

UNDER CABINET FIXTURES:

They also have a line of interesting under cabinet fixtures called LUMAMATE.

The system has 90° vertical, 90° horizontal joint connector, motion sensor, on/off switch and dimmer switch all in on.

*The touch dimming, step dimming by tapping worked really smoothly.

They started with the larger size and have evolved to a smaller sized fixture with the same capabilities. The smaller fixture is not yet online or in the catalog but is coming soon.

  • Available in 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, and 4000K.
  • Available in 90CRI (standard) and 95CRI.
  • 45° clip and flush clip are available for mounting.
