Eaton’s RTC series is a classic center-basket LED luminaire. The RTC series boasts premium efficacy, a durable design, and offers integrated control features. The company says that the luminaire’s short 2.5-inch height makes it perfect for lighting of rooms with shallow and restricted plenums. RTC comes in a choice of five stock lumen packages in color temperatures of 3500K and 4000K along.

Numerous control options and factory-installed sensors are available. RTC’s fully integrated sensors include Eaton’s WaveLinx wireless control system and Eaton’s LumaWatt Pro for Internet of Things (IoT) connectivity in multiple settings including schools, offices, hospitals, and retail spaces.

Eaton FPanel Series Features Edge-Lit Design

The FPanel LED series employs an edge-lit design for an ultra-thin luminaire that measures just 1.75-inches in height. Its relatively short form factor makes the FPanel LED series ideal for recessed, suspended and surface-mount applications in rooms with shallow plenums, according to Eaton. The FPanel offers sealed construction with a durable and reliable design that includes contractor-friendly installation features. The FPanel comes in multiple DLC qualified configurations for use in low and high ceilings and Eaton says it delivers up to 53 percent energy savings.

Additionally, both products comply with California Title 24 non-residential lighting controls requirements, are UL-listed for damp locations. Also, when combined with Eaton’s DLC NLC qualified control systems, both qualify for DLC Network Lighting Control (NLC) incentives.

“Commercial builders and facility managers are continually looking for lighting solutions that deliver the latest in technology, versatility, and energy efficiency while providing a modern look,” said Joe Semaan, director of marketing and product management, Eaton’s Lighting Division. “These new additions to the Metalux family of commercial luminaires offer high-performance solutions using Eaton’s LED technology. And, they are compatible with our controls solutions, which take the guesswork out of facilities management and improve the lighting for optimal comfort, productivity, and energy savings.”
