With the new Lighting Systems line from Kichler®, a leader in innovative lighting, every detail has been carefully planned from the fixture itself, to the technology within, to provide thoughtfully designed products and lighting solutions for every space. “From economic solutions for simple tasks, to premium light output for a desired aesthetic effect, we have a solution with our new Lighting Systems line,” said Ben Korman, lighting systems product manager, Kichler. “Our LED under-cabinet fixtures now offer a consistent, diffused light for the precise art of measuring ingredients and a more inviting environment for entertaining. And, our tape light power supply has been engineered to improve the quality of light as well as ultimately extend the life of the product itself.” Key products from the 2016 Kichler Lighting Systems line include: 8U Series LED Under Cabinet The Kichler 8U Series premium under-cabinet fixture provides homeowners with superior, even-light output. Most LED fixtures create a spotted effect on reflective surfaces, but Kichler’s light diffusing system produces a consistent, solid beam of light perfect for enhancing the look and functionality of any space, i.e. showing off kitchen backsplashes and countertops, measuring ingredients and entertaining guests. The sleek fixture (1” profile, 4” depth) has a durable powder coat finish and is dimmable with a standard wall dimmer. Installation is as easy as it comes with captive screws, push-in wire connectors and cable connector. The 8U series is Title 24 compliant, features a seven-year residential warranty and is available in Textured Bronze, Textured Nickel and Textured White finishes. 4U Series LED Under Cabinet The Kichler 4U Series LED is a perfect solution for any size project. Moderately-priced, these fixtures feature a low-profile design (1” profile), durable finish and are both direct wire and linkable. The LED offers gently diffused, quality light output (40,000 hours). The 4U LED is Title 24 compliant, features a three-year residential warranty and is offered in Textured Bronze and Textured White finishes. 4U Series Xenon Under Cabinet The Kichler 4U Series Xenon is both cost and energy efficient with 120 volt (2,500 hours) and 12 volt (10,000 hours) options that come equipped with extenders on the underside of each fixture. This allows the bulb heat to dissipate better than fixtures with direct cabinet contact. The 4U Xenon features a three-year residential warranty. Finishes in the line include Textured Bronze, Textured White and Textured Nickel. LED Tape Light Dimmable Power Supply The industry-leading technology behind the new Kichler Tape Light Power Supply regulates power like no other – controlling voltage fluctuations in a way that will ultimately help extend the life of the tape itself. Power is no longer simply passed through. The power supply thinks, converts and disperses the excess to preserve the light quality and extend the life performance. With a standard power supply, power enters at varying levels – reaching 12- and 24- volts tape at a voltage that may be a higher level than the tape is designed to withstand. The high input of power can cause the life of the product to diminish. With the Kichler Power Supply, the innovative technology intercepts, converts and allows only the appropriate, precise voltage through to the tape (see illustration below) – allowing homeowners to create beautiful designs with staying power. The technology within can also decipher the difference between voltage fluctuations in contrast to when one is attempting to dim the light with a dimmer switch. This allows for a greater dimming performance – even with a standard Triac dimmer. The Kichler LED Tape Light Dimmable Power Supplies are available in 12- and 24-volts (60 and 90 watts), come ready to install and are compatible with your standard wall dimmer. Kichler Power Supply LED Tape Light – 6TL Series 24 Volt (V) The new Kichler LED Tape Light – 6TL Series 24V offers cost and energy efficiencies suitable for any environment and 90 CRI which emits a rich, pure color of light. The LED Tape Light is available in standard- or high- output for both dry and damp locations. An ultra-high output is also available for installation in a dry location only. The LED Tape Light – 6TL Series 24V features Kichler’s LED bin for superior color consistency, a five-year residential warranty and is available in either White or Black finishes. LED Tape Light – 4TL Series 12 Volt (V) The addition of the new Kichler LED Tape Light – 4TL Series 12V offers both standard and high output featuring the following color temperatures –2700K, 3000K and 5000K in each output for dry locations.
