Recognized – Recessed Downlights

"8-inch recessed LED downlight" by Eaton's Cooper Lighting Business


The 8-inch aperture LED downlight features a diffused optical system that reduces LED source brightness. The downlight is offered in narrow, medium and wide beam distribution options and dimming is standard. A flexible disconnect allows for tool-less replacement of the LED engine from below the ceiling.
