Sep 6, 2017: Designed as the perfect lighting solution to fit shallow plenums above ceilings in residential and light commercial settings, the Aether IC Rated family from WAC Lighting is engineered with a low profile 3.5-inch LED shallow housing and has added a new color changing option. This housing is ideal for installation into small ceiling spaces inside buildings with complex HVAC ducts and heating/water pipes that are located between the floors.
Using WAC Lighting’s exclusive optional Ilumenight App, the user can take the space from pure warm white to a cool white color temperature, as well as red to violet and every color in between. All of these color temperatures and brightness are available with just a touch of the finger.
Aether, Winner of The Lighting for Tomorrow Award, is one of the industry’s only high-output LED ceiling down light housing with such a shallow depth. Energy Star rated and wet location listed for a variety of applications, Aether fits into ceilings with thicknesses that range from just .50 to 1.5-inches. The luminaire operates as a down light for general illumination, a wall wash for illuminating walls, and an adjustable fixture for accent lighting and mounting to sloped ceilings.
Utilizing WAC’s proprietary LED technology, Aether operates with just 22.5 watts and delivers up to 1375 lumens, nearly doubling the performance of a 75-watt MR16 halogen fixture. The luminaire is offered with a 15-degree narrow beam ranging up to 50-degree flood beam for various applications.
Color temperatures range from 2700K to 4000K with a color-rendering index of up to 90. The luminaire dims beautifully with an electronic low voltage (ELV) or 0-10V dimmers and is rated for a 70,000-hour life.
Aether features a 3.5-inch trim aperture with a 35° cutoff angle so illumination is directed precisely where needed. It includes a universal driver that ranges from 120-220-277 volts. Both round and square trim models are available. Trimless styles are offered for a clean, architectural look on today’s ceilings.
