Espen Technology Launches Field-Adjustable Flat Panel Retrofit Kits

Espen Technology launched a new family of field-adjustable flat panel retrofit kits, for upgrading fluorescent troffers to the latest LED technology. The new 3-output selectable flat panel kits are part of the versaKIT family of LED retrofit kits, that also include switchable center-basket troffer kits and switchable commercial downlight kits. Each flat panel retrofit kit has a 3-position dip switch that enables installers to easily select a wattage and light output, for the kit, at the time of installation.

Wattage and light output settings:
•    1800 / 2200 / 2500 lumens for the 2X2 kit
•    3300 / 3600 / 4200 lumens for the 2X4 kit

According to John Clancy, SVP of Sales & Marketing at Espen, "The new 3-output flat panel retrofit kits can reduce inventory stocking requirements for both electrical distributors and contractors."  Clancy added, "Retrofitting the existing troffer housing with Espen's pre-assembled kit takes only a minute to install, saving labor costs, and the entire retrofit is done from below the ceiling."

The new flat panel retrofit kits have an advanced low-profile, edge-lit design.  The kit provides all the components needed to perform the change out quickly and efficiently, enabling system upgrades without disturbing the ceiling. The LED kits are completely assembled within their frame. The new switchable output flat panel kits are offered in 3000 K, 3500 K, 4000 K, and 5000 K CCTs, as well as 2X2 and 2X4 sizes.  Additional features include:  0-10 V dimming driver, DLC listing, UL listing, and a 5 year warranty.  The new flat-panel kits with field-adjustable output will be demonstrated at Strategies in Light, Booth # 810.
