DMF’s Expanded 2-Inch X Series Downlights


DMF Lighting, an architectural lighting manufacturer of modular LED downlighting systems, has expanded its 2-inch X Series modular downlighting collection to include Cross Beam Total Internal Reflection (TIR) Optics; a 500-lumen Ultra-Narrow light engine module; Pinhole and Hyperbolic trims; and extension collars for installation in thicker ceilings.

The uniquely designed Cross Beam TIR Optics reducing glare while providing maximum light output. Specifically engineered for the X Series small aperture downlights, the uniquely designed Cross Beam TIR Optics provide maximum light output and minimal beam clipping, while minimizing glare to create a comfortable workspace or living environment.

The modular design (housing, light engine module and trim) features tool-less, field-interchangeable optics, modules and trims, allowing easy serviceability, simplified design changes, and onsite aiming flexibility to meet specific application needs.

Drivers are integrated into the modules versus the housing, so modules, equipped with quick connects, can be easily swapped out with below ceiling access. This makes the X Series the first truly serviceable 2-inch downlight with integrated drivers in the light engine modules, and below ceiling access.

The X Series downlights are offered in round and square apertures with fixed Downlight and Adjustable modules (500 to 1500 lumens) and a wide variety of optical distributions and color temperatures including Warm Dim and Tunable White.

Patent-pending Precision Lock Collar eliminates over-cutting and drywall repair, a common problem with small apertures. This is a true breakthrough for error-free installation. The downlights are shipped with the patent-pending Precision Lock Collar, making flush-to-ceiling installation easy to achieve.

Featuring a sustainable design, the downlighting system is compliant with California’s Title-24 JA8, ENERGY STAR, and Declare Listed for Living Building Challenge and LEED projects. The downlights are wet location listed with optional IC-rated housings and a model that meets Chicago Plenum requirements.
