Power management company Eaton has announced the launch of the Halo Surface Mount LED Downlight (SMD), a surface-mounting luminaire. The downlight can be installed directly into drywall without the need for a recessed housing or a junction box, ideal for closets, storage areas, attics, basements and other locations where space is limited.

Designed for residential and commercial installations, the Halo SMD family is available in 4- (SMD4) or 6-inch (SMD6) sizes, with up to 810 lumens for the SMD4 and up to 815 lumens for the SMD6. The family is offered in both round and square models and is available in a variety of correlated color temperatures (CCTs) including 2700 Kelvin (K), 3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5000K and in a 90 color rendering index (CRI). The fixtures are dimmable down to five percent with many leading-edge and trailing-edge dimmers.

In addition to installation into drywall (Direct Mount versions), the SMD4 and SMD6 are also designed to install into 4-inch, 5-inch and 6-inch recessed housings, as well as 3-1/2-inch and 4-inch square, octagon and round junction boxes. The SMD product line is wet location listed for showers and outdoor protected ceilings. The family is a solution for new construction, remodel or retrofit applications.

The downlight features a LED quick wiring connector that meets high efficacy code requirements and is compliant with the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) standard 70 as well as National Electrical Code Sections 410.16(A)(3) and 410.16(C)(5).
