acdc launches new downlight range with market leading efficacy of more than 80 Llm/W

British designer and manufacturer of architectural LED products for exterior façades and hospitality lighting, acdc, has launched a highly efficient and complete family of recessed downlights offering maximum choice and variation for a wide range of indoor applications.

Delivering more than 80 Llm/W, the downlights are the most efficient on the market[1] to provide a truly low energy alternative to both traditional fittings and older LEDs. Options include fixed, adjustable and wallwash formats delivering 600, 1000 and 2000 lumens with Xicato, Warm Zero and Dynamic White options.

acdc Design Director, Daniel Hodgson, says: “The new range comprises our technical architectural downlight, Novus; soft edge architectural downlight, Air; and deep recessed pinhole, Darc Pro. All offer unsurpassed light quality and outstanding flexibility.

“Features include a single point source to eliminate the need for an accessory to provide a single beam, a choice of interchangeable optics to easily change the beam, high colour rendering (CRI 90 option) and a narrow 12° optic.

“The entire range also has a deep recessed, fully rotatable (up to 355°) LED position. This minimises glare, helps the downlight blend seamlessly into the environment and provides complete flexibility over where the light is directed – both now and in the future.

“To allow the luminaire to be adjusted to achieve increased output, the downlights also feature a clever offset pivot point.”

For ease and speed of installation all variants also feature an installation ring for a quick first fix and a click in reflector.
