Nicor Maxcor LED Lighting

MichelleDTJune 21, 2012

New to the lighting forum. We are building a new home and asked the electrician for LED options over the outdated builder halo cans he bid. He offered up the Nicor Maxcor product.

Pros/Cons? Other options we should look at? The Nicor product installed is $90/can and we have 75 cans spec'd.

Thanks.

I had not seen that one -- looks good, and high lumen output available, and comes in 3000K color. If it comes on with zero delay (Sylvania RT6 has a small delay), and dims as well as the Cree/Ecosmart CR6, it could be a winner. I'd planned on going with the Cree, but it only comes in 2700K, and 3000K would be nice.

It that "installed" $90 include the cans/wiring, or is it $90 upgrade per can? I see that product online for $50, and it is a 2 minute install.

Anybody seen this one in person?

Thanks for the response. New construction and the 90 was for materials and labor.

The report card for dimming on the Lutron site doesn't look good, either for low end dimming or startup time when dimmed. I wouldn't commit to those without having one in hand with a dimmer to try. When you see that a light can only be dimmed to 33%, it is going to look more like 57% as bright as full on, due to the non-linear response of the eye.
