Lutron Launches 0.1% Architectural Downlight Driver, Expands Hi-Lume Premier Line

Specifically designed to fit through a 2” downlight aperture, the new driver brings market leading performance to the architectural downlight space

COOPERSBURG, Pa. (March 1, 2018)Lutron Electronics, the leader in lighting controls and shading solutions, announced today the launch of a 0.1% architectural downlight driver with EcoSystem digital control, an expansion of its Hi-Lume Premier line. A high‑performance solution for any space and any application, the new driver provides smooth, continuous dimming down to 0.1% of full output power, and transitions gracefully between off and on, with Soft-on, Fade-to-Black.

Ideal for projects that require downlights with a smaller aperture, the 0.1% driver offers best-in-class dimming per cubic inch on the market. The driver makes it simple for any OEM or lighting designer to deliver an exceptional lighting experience from architectural-grade fixtures.

“Lutron designs with people in mind and understands that lighting performance impacts those occupying both residential and commercial spaces,” said Matt Ochs, product management director at Lutron Electronics. “Our expansion of the Hi-lume Premier family provides OEMs with a technology that’s easy to incorporate into their fixtures so that together we can empower lighting designers, and ultimately end users, to create their right environment with a wide range of selections for aesthetic, color temperature and dimming performance.”
