Now, it’s easier than ever for landscape contractors and installers to design, install and service landscape lighting. The 12V LED Accent employs VLO technology. Three lumen output choices are offered from a single fixture and can be adjusted electronically with a switching magnet. The magnetic switching sensor is fully encapsulated inside the fixture and protected completely from water ingression. Unlike competitive offerings featuring a mechanical adjustment, the failure risk or long-term reliability concerns are eliminated. In addition, the platform features an integrated 6000V surge protection that guards against power irregularities that can be a hazard to LED landscape lighting. “Installers and landscape contractors can now deliver more customized landscape options,” says Scott Pesta, senior product manager, Kichler. “The new 12V LED Accent with VLO allows them to quickly adjust the lighting design during installation for the ideal light output, or adjust as landscape application needs evolve.” Three lumen options offered in one fixture Two sizes: small (100, 200 and 300 lumens) and large (400, 600 and 835 lumens) Two color temperatures: 2700K/3000K Three beam angles, including 10-degree (spot), 35-degree (flood), and 60-degree (wide flood) 9-15V AC/DC range Advanced built-in surge protection (6,000V) Fully sealed to protect against water ingression Cowls, lenses and louver accessories available 15-year warranty The 12V LED Accent with VLO boasts superior technology and reliability, without compromising the design and aesthetic appearance demanded in a professional landscape product.
