Cooper Lighting introduces recessed LED indirect luminaire

Date Announced: 31 Aug 2010

Peachtree City, GA – Cooper Lighting, a division of Cooper Industries plc (NYSE: CBE), has introduced the io® lili, a 2' x 2' recessed LED indirect luminaire designed to replace comparable fluorescent alternatives for general lighting applications. Featuring a unique patent pending organic reflector design, the indirect luminaire provides soft, glare-free illumination without excessive brightness and produces optimum light levels that are compliant with IES standards. The lighting fixture is an ideal solution for commercial offices, educational environments, and institutional facilities including hospital corridors and patient rooms, as well as other areas desiring comfortable low brightness illumination.

The luminaire’s patent pending design features LEDs that are centrally located in a very low profile decorative pendant (light engine), which also serves as the heat sink providing required thermal management. The LEDs are optically controlled to project light up into the organically shaped reflector. The result is low surface brightness—much lower than other recessed indirect luminaires in its class and almost half the brightness of LED competitive troffer-type products.

The luminaire produces a bright white color temperature of 3500K and features excellent color rendering (>80 CRI). It can be dimmed to 5% and has a projected average rated life of 50,000 hours at 70% of lamp lumen output, which is two times the life of comparable fluorescent sources.
