Eaton unveils D2W tech for downlight collections
The technology mimics the performance of an incandescent halogen lamp source when dimmed, Eaton said in a statement
Power management company Eaton announced it has launched the Dim-to-Warm (D2W) technology for its Portfolio collection, and Halo light-emitting diode (LED) recessed downlighting product lines for residential and commercial spaces.
D2W technology mimics the performance of an incandescent halogen lamp source when dimmed.
Designed for architectural commercial environments, D2W technology is available as an option for the Portfolio 4-inch and 6-inch round and square LED downlights and the 6-inch LED cylinder.
Remarking on the product, Glenn Siegel, director of marketing and product management for Eaton's lighting division, said: "Dimming LED products reduces the light output but doesn’t change the color as it does when dimming standard incandescent sources.
"D2W technology is designed to perform comparably to popular halogen sources, providing clean, crisp light at full power of 3,000 Kelvins (K) and dimming smoothly to 1850K, which creates a rich, warm glow resembling candlelight."
The products are offered in 900 to 2000 lumen packages and provide a 90 Color Rendering Index (CRI) throughout the dimming range.
The Portfolio collection's units feature a diffused optical system that provides light control and low aperture brightness, and delivers more than 70 lumens per watt (lm/W).
The products are designed to last 50,000 hours at 70% lumen maintenance, Eaton said in a statement.
D2W technology is also available as an option for Eaton's Halo ML56 LED product line, which offers multiple lumen packages and color temperatures that are interchangeable with dedicated 5-inch and 6-inch downlight and directional trims.
Designed for commercial and residential applications, the technology also maintains a 90 CRI, delivering over 70 lm/W and is designed to last 50,000 hours.
