JOIST: 2" x 8"
• Housing can be installed in direct contact with insulation. (Figure 1)
• Install hanger bars to fixture; ensure end tab is facing outward. (Figure 2)
• Extend bar hangers to fit between joists and position fixture by hammering nail on bars
into the joists. Hangers should be level with bottom of the joists.
• Use T-Bar slot in the bottom bars for suspended (T-Bar) ceilings, bending the tabs to
hold T-Bar tightly.
• Make all necessary electrical connections (See “Electrical Connection”).
• Housing junction box contains two wires: a black (hot) and a white (neutral). Wires must
be spliced to the current feed wires. ALWAYS SPLICE WHITE TO WHITE AND BLACK
• Insert wires carefully into junction box. Connect the green ground wire to the green
grounding pigtail in junction box (Figure 3). Replace cover.
• For Romex or 3-wire BX, flexible metal cable installations attach supply ground lead
(green) to bare copper ground lead or ground screw in wiring box mounted on plaster
frame. Local electrical codes should be consulted to determine acceptable installation:
conduit, Romex or flexible metal cable.
• For 12D1 (Standard Triac Dimming, 1000 Series), the driver can be dimmed with many
standard 120V incandescent and electronic low voltage dimmers.
• For 12D2 and 27D2 (0-10V Dimming), the driver can be dimmed with 0-10V dimming
controls. Locate low voltage dimming control wires (purple, yellow) in junction box and
make appropriate connections (purple to purple, yellow to grey). The green wire should
be attached to the fixture’s ground leads. For Non-Dimming applications, leave the
dimming control wires (purple and yellow) capped. Note: When using 0-10V dimming
drivers, Class I wiring (300V wiring inside conduit) is required. Please consult factory for
additional details.
• For 12D3, the driver (Lutron Hi-Lume A-Series LTE) is compatible with various Lutron
forward phase dimming controls. Contact Lutron for the up-to-date compatibility list of
dimming controls:
• Close junction box cover after wiring. Ensure that all wires are safely within junction box
before closing.

• Remove protective cover from LED Module.
• For decorative trim assemblies with separate trim ring, place ring on reflector prior to
• Attach reflector to LED Module by aligning tabs, then twist and lock into place (Figure 4).
For trim assemblies with lenses and/or two piece reflectors; complete the trim assembly
by positioning the lens and lower reflector in place.
• Make the LED Module electrical connection with the connectors (Figure 5).
• Carefully route excess wire out of the way; align connector to heat-sink (Figure 5A) and
secure into place by tightening Philips head screw. (Figure 5B)
• Push LED Module with assembled reflector through the hole in plaster frame until flush
with ceiling. Spring clip tension can be adjusted by bending spring clips.
NOTE: LED Driver should be replaced by a qualified electrician. Turn off power at fuse or
circuit breaker box before replacing the LED Driver.
• Pull and drop the trim and LED Module from the frame.
• Remove the conduit base from the LED Module by loosening the Philips Head Screw that is
securing the conduit base to the heat sink. (Figure 5A). Disconnect the electrical connection.
• Remove the driver assembly from the housing by loosening the (2) two wing nut. (Figure 6).
• Disconnect LED Driver from line voltage input wiring in J-Box. Disconnect the LED Driver
from the LED leads (leads are terminated by crimp connectors).
• Reinstall Factory Approved LED Driver by reversing above procedure.
• Read all the instructions before installation. Save instructions for later use.
• Turn off power at fuse or circuit breaker box before installation or before doing any
maintenance work.
• Product must be grounded to avoid potential electric shock and any other potential hazards.
• Product must be mounted in locations and at heights and in a manner consistent with its
intended use, and in compliance with National Electrical Code and local codes. Use of
accessory equipment is not recommended.
• Installing contrary to instructions may cause unsafe conditions.
• Do not block light from the trim aperture, in whole or in part, as this may cause unsafe
• Warning: Risk of fire. Most dwellings built before 1985 have supply wire rated at 60°C.
Consult a qualified electrician before installation.
• Avoid hazards to children: account for all parts and properly dispose of all packing materials.
