For ConTech Lighting 6" LED Recessed Downlight Series: RA6LRM
• Housing can NOT be installed in direct contact with insulation. Do not install
insulation within 3" of fixture sides or wiring compartment, nor above fixture in such a
manner to entrap heat. (Figure 1)
• Using supplied template, scribe circle on ceiling in desired location and accurately cut hole
in ceiling.
• Make all necessary electrical connections (See “Electrical Connection”).
• With clips seated properly in can (Figure 3), insert housing through ceiling opening, junction
box first, until it is flush with ceiling.
• Hold fixture up against ceiling and push clip through housing slot.
• To lock clip into place, push flat portion against side of can in an upward direction. (Figure
4A) To complete installation, push up clip with screwdriver until it snaps into place. To
release, pull down on clip. (Figure 4B)

• Provide electrical service with flexible cable only. Pass cable through opening and wire
fixture in accordance with NEC or local electrical code.
• Remove appropriate size knockout on fixture J-box for conduit.
• Remove J-box cover by pushing up on spring clip. Attach conduit with connector to J-box
and secure.
• Connect supply wires to fixture wires: connect black to black (hot), white to white (neutral),
and green to green (ground) with twist type wire connectors (not provided). (Figure 2)
• Close junction box cover after wiring. Ensure that all wires are safely within box before
• 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 National Electrical Code (NEC)
and local codes.
• 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:

• 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 5). 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. Carefully route excess wire
out of the way; align connector to heat-sink (Figure 6A) and secure into place by tightening
Philips head screw. (Figure 6B)
• 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.
A. To Install
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 conduit base from the LED Module by loosening the Philips Head Screw that is
securing the conduit base to the heat sink. (Figure 6A). Disconnect the electrical connection.
• Remove complete housing from ceiling by reversing installation procedure above.
• Remove the J-Box and driver enclosure from the housing by unscrewing the (2) two J-Box
mounting screws and the (2) driver enclosure mounting screws (Figure 3).
• Disconnect LED Driver from line voltage input wiring in J-Box. Open up the LED Driver
Enclosure and disconnect the LED Driver from the LED leads (leads are terminated by crimp
• 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 conditions.
• 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.
• Call Technical Support at ConTech Lighting with any installation questions: 847.559.5500.
