Order Code: DL29815
Model# VL1-DLC040X-MDA-VVAD00


Venture Lighting’s LED downlight retrofit kits are low profile, durable, and designed for long life and low maintenance. Designed to fit into existing 8” diameter openings, these retrofit kits quickly and easily upgrade metal halide wattages up to 175W or 150W and compact fluorescent wattage up to 2x42W with an energy saving LED 40W. These downlights are mounted to an extruded aluminum heat sink which is designed to ensure proper thermal management of the system. This design allows for a cooler running LED chip which leads to longer lifetime, better efficacy, and color consistency and comply with all US and Canadian safety standards. LED color consistency meets a 4-step MacAdam ellipse.


Designed to have low glare yet utilize high performance materials to maximize efficacy and achieve precise photometric distributions, these downlights come standard with a 40 degree beam angle.


The Class II power supply has a range of 120-277V, 50/60 Hz. The high performance LEDs are rated up to 35,000 hours at 25°C ambient temperature. 0-10V dimming capability is standard.


The kits are NON-IC Rated and design for replacing most manufacturer’s CFL and HID Fixtures.
