Amerlux introduces the architectural minimalistic, yet versatile Velato LED family of HHP Recessed Adjustable Multiples fixtures, which are available in one, two, and three light configurations for accent and display lighting in retail, commercial, and hospitality environments. Velato is offered in both trimless and trimmed styles.
“The new Velato represents our response to the multitude of customer and specifier requests for a super-flexible, minimalistic concealed ceiling light with a quasi-custom vibe,” said Amerlux CEO and President Chuck Campagna. “Optimal beam aiming of light remains centered within the opening of this concealed multiple, and lands right on target. The Velato faceplate is the key to its unique properties.”
Velato Hornet High Power (HHP) Recessed Slot Adjustable Trimless and Trimmed Multiples are offered in 16 and 18 watt models in one-, two- and three-light configurations. Constructed with a stamped steel-mounting frame with integral mounting bars and a steel plaster frame, the fixtures are thermally protected with a steel driver housing. The fixtures feature an extruded aluminum upper housing with knife-edge and mitered welded corners and complete die cast optical head construction without exposed wiring.
Luminaires offer a 30-degree vertical tilt and 360-degree rotation with availability of a variety of beam spreads including spot, narrow flood, medium flood, flood, wide flood, very wide flood and linear spread. Color temperatures consist of 2200K, 2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K, with a CRI of up to 97 in three temperatures. All are offered with 50,000 hours of rated life at 70 percent light output.
Electronic constant current LED drivers are used for 0-10V dimming on 120-277 volt systems. Velato dims down to less than 5 percent and is compatible with all major dimming protocols prevalent in the U.S. including TRIAC and ELV (electronic low voltage), DALI driver, Lutron Hi-lume™ and EcoSystem® which integrate into a variety of building management and daylighting control systems. The fixtures are also compatible with Wall Box ELV dimmers such as Lutron’s Diva®, Maestro®, Nova T®, Vareo®, Skylark®, and Vareo®, as well as Leviton’s SureSlide® and Vizio®. Velato is also compatible with Central Control Systems such as ETC’s “Sensor Rack” or “DRd” with ELV10 modules, and Lutron’s “GP” Panel and Grafik Eye® QS with PHPM-PA Interfaces.
The faceplate finish is matte white standard.
Velato can be mounted in sheet rock ceilings with a maximum thickness of one inch.
