aspectLED's Modern Series Recessed Lighting brings a sleek and modern look to your lighting design. Our recessed lights are bright, energy efficient, and attractively styled, making them perfect for virtually any residential or commercial application. At under 3" tall, these recessed lights can fit into tight spaces that a traditional recessed can light can't, such as ceilings with ductwork/piping/obstructions, hot-roof ceilings with limited vertical clearance, and tight soffits. These lights feature an easily adjustable LED face that can be pointed straight downward, making them compatible with sloped ceilings (up to 6/12 pitch). They also make perfect art spotlights or wall accent lights, as they can also be installed in flat ceilings and adjusted to point at walls, artwork, or sculptures.

What light color should I choose?
Warm White is equivalent to a standard incandescent light color and is most popular for residential applications. It has a slight warm yellow glow to it that many people find comfortable and we are all used to seeing in our homes. It is a 2700-3000K on the Kelvin Light Color Scale.

Cool White is equivalent to a standard CFL or Fluorescent light color and is most popular for commercial applications, although it is also used fairly often in residential. It puts out a pure white without any yellow undertone. It is a 4000-4500K on the Kelvin Light Color Scale.

DayWhite™ most closely replicates natural daylight and does have a slight blue hue to the light output. This is rarely seen in residential applications as the light output can seem a bit harsh and bright, and is most commonly seen in exterior or commercial applications. This is the brightest of the White light color options. It is a 6000-6500K on the Kelvin Light Color Scale.

Does this fixture need a housing or a can? How does it affix to my ceiling?
aspectLED’S recessed in-ceiling lights do not require a can, housing, or box to attach to. They insert directly into your drywall cut out and are held in place by high tension springs.

How is it installed?
The light is supplied with an external driver to convert from your power source (12VDC, 24VDC or 120VAC) to the power level the light requires to operate; the driver has a 5” pigtail for you to make your connection to your power source. To finish you simply plug the light into the low voltage side of the driver, and insert the light into your cut out.

Can I daisy chain or connect multiple lights together?
Yes, just make sure that your wire gauge and power source are adequate to support the distance you are running from your power source to the lights and the number of lights on your circuit.

How long is the wire pigtail length on a recessed light?
There is approximately 9" of wire lead between the fixture and it's external LED driver. There is approximately 5 inches of wire lead from the input side of the driver that you can use to connect to your input wiring.

Should I choose Standard Brightness or Ultra Bright?
This is a personal preference and depends on your application. If you generally like your light levels high or more bright or if you are trying to light a larger area, go with Ultra Bright as the light will spread farther. If you generally like a dimmer light, go with Standard Bright. For example, Standard Bright are excellent accent lights or work very well for in-cabinet lighting. However, if you want more of an ambient or task lighting, you will likely be happier with Ultra Bright. If you are unsure, go with Ultra Bright and use a dimmer to allow you to choose your own brightness once installed.

Which voltage option should I choose?
12VDC: Popular for automotive, motorcycle, boat/marine applications, or anywhere where you are connecting to a 12VDC supply. Some applications may require a separate 12VDC power supply!

24VDC: This is the most popular option for residential and commercial applications. 24VDC is a safe low voltage, and is the most stable and reliable voltage for your aspectLED in-ceiling lights. Requires a separate 24VDC supply!

120VAC: Designed to connect directly to your 120VAC residential supply power. No additional power supply is required.

If I choose a low voltage (12VDC or 24VDC) light; how do I know what power supply to purchase?
The method to calculate your required power source for a low voltage light installation would be to take the watts per light (in the specs section of the product you are interested in), multiply by the number of fixtures you plan to install, and then add 20% to that total. The resulting number is the minimum number of watts your power supply needs to be, so round up to the next available size power supply.It never hurts to go with a larger power supply. Your lights will only consume the number of watts actually being used when they are on.

What gauge wire should I run to my recessed lights?
We generally recommend using between 12ga or 14ga stranded wire. Longer distances require larger gauge wire. Always consult a wire gauge chart to determine the correct size wire for your application.

Is this fixture rated for use in damp locations?
aspectLED’s recessed in ceiling light fixtures are approved for damp environments like showers and bathrooms.

Is this fixture UL listed?
