Low cost LED Conversion Kit turns older 4-foot and 8-foot T8 or T12 fixtures into LED luminaires

MINNEAPOLIS, October 3, 2016

Engineered Products Company (EPCO), a supplier of specialty lighting and wiring consumable products for electrical contractors, today announced the introduction of its new LED RetroFit Conversion Kit that provides a complete, low-cost lighting upgrade solution to convert "strip-type" fluorescent fixtures into energy efficient LED luminaires that reduce energy consumption and improve energy management.

“Our new LED RetroFit Conversion Kit is a simple upgrade for energy efficient illumination systems," said EPCO President Jack Schuster. "The kit is the most effective LED illumination system on the market. There's no need to buy new LED luminaires. The retrofit conversion from fluorescent to LED is fast and easy. The kits are Designed Lights Consortium (DLC) approved and LED Lighting Facts certified. The kit includes high quality components and an attractive design that makes the retrofit look like a new LED luminaire at a fraction of the cost."

Accessory options for the LED RetroFit Conversion Kit include:

  • The RFK Installation Tool
  • A one-piece, snap-on polycarbonate UV stabilized frosted diffuser provides even lumen distribution without glare, shadows, or hot spots, and is easily removable for cleaning.
  • An Emergency LED Backup Drive provides 90+ minutes of emergency lighting for egress applications.
  • Occupancy sensors to control lighting operations in commercial and industrial applications, or as an energy management solution to reduce energy consumption in low occupancy areas.

EPCO recommends using the RFK Installation Tool (sold separately) which includes two labor-and time-saving "magnetic" suspension devices used to expedite installation saving time and labor expenses for the installer. The tool supports one-man installation, even when retrofitting an 8-foot strip fixture and eliminates the use of string, tie wire, nylon straps, and other temporary suspension methods.
