Fulham introduces universal-voltage linear lighting retrofit kits
The engines are designed for retrofitting linear wall sconces and other surface-mounted lighting fixtures.

Lighting component manufacturer Fulham’s new linear DirectAC retrofit engines, part of its Vizion line of kits, feature an AC direct drive on an integrated LED board for low-profile, dimmable applications.
The engines are available in three variants—10-W (5.5-in.), 15-W (11-in.) and 30-W (22-in.)—and accommodate universal voltage input from 120 to 277 V. A standard colour rendering index (CRI) of 90 and a range of colour temperatures are offered for each model.
The integrated LED board eliminates the need for a separate driver, allowing for a profile of just 0.67 in. in height. This allows the engines to be retrofitted into vanity-type fixtures, linear wall sconces and other surface-mounted applications in the retail, health-care, educational, industrial and hospitality sectors, for users seeking to reduce energy costs.
