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 Surface Mount lights do not require a can or housing. They would generally mount directly to an electrical junction box on the ceiling. They do require an electrical junction box in the ceiling to house the external driver and your wire connection to 120VAC. The light comes with a bracket that attaches to the junction box or ceiling.
How is it installed?
The light is supplied with an external puck style driver to convert from your power source (120VAC) to the power level the light requires to operate; the driver has a 6” pigtail for you to make your connection to your 120VAC power source. These you would house in a standard electrical handy-box or junction box immediately above your fixture. The dimensions of the external driver can be found in the product detail specifications. To finish you simply plug the light into the low voltage side of the driver, and attach the light to the bracket.
What if I don’t have space for a junction box?
If you are dealing with clearance constraints or limited access, you can locate your junction box, driver, and 120VAC connection up to 100 feet from the light location. By extending the low voltage side of the connection with our 2 foot, 5 foot, 10 foot or 20 foot extension cables, or alternatively, you can use 14 or 16 gauge stranded wire and crimp connectors (select the gauge of wire based on the distance of your run. Always reference a wire gauge chart to determine accurate gauge for your application.
Can I daisy chain or connect multiple lights together?
Yes, just make sure that your wire gauge is 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 6" of wire lead from the input side of the driver that you can use to connect to your input wiring.
Can I have multiple lights on a single driver?
Eachlight requires its own driver to operate correctly. To achieve the low profile; key components have been transferred from the light fixture to the driver unit. The light cannot function without its individual driver.
Does aspectLED recommend a particular dimmer switch for use with this fixture?
Yes, we recommend the following dimmer switches:
Lutron Skylark SELV-300P
Lutron Skylark S-600P
Lutron Skylark S-600
Lutron Skylark DVW-603
Leviton Super slide 6631
Leviton Super slide VP106
Leviton super slide VP105-1
Leviton Vizia VRE06-1LZ

Is this fixture UL listed?
The entire Ultra-Thin product line is UL and cULus listed.
Is this fixture rated for use in damp locations?
