Lightolier Recessed Can Trim

Lightolier Recessed Can Trim

Click to view full size image

Saved one of the recessed can trims from the house I've been working in. This is one of six from the kitchen (only saved one though). The reflector is polished aluminum, inside and out, with a flat white trim lip. The socket is a nicer beefy ceramic socket with fiberglass/cloth braided wires.

My plan when I saved this was to make this into another mini highbay light. Whether or not I end up doing that is another story... The reflector is very powerful and seems like it would make a nice narrow beam highbay. Would have far fewer reflector losses than my bucket light highbays lol.

Nice save! I saw some track versions at the ReStore without that metal shade, and they were $8.99.

If you make another highbay I'd be interested in purchasing it depending on how much it costs.

Any machine is a smoke machine if you operate it wrong enough.

Sure thing. Likely wouldn't be with this reflector though.

Nice, that looks like to be a similar trim as the ones I have in my 50w PSMH recessed cans. Never thought of turning them into a mini highbay though.

Does this have a ring that stays in the ceiling?

Don't be fooLED, T8 IS the worst thing to do to a magnetic T12 fixture.

No this is just the trim.

Is it a remodel (or "old work") trim? I have 2 in my kitchen near the door to the back porch that are assembled exactly like this but have an assembly in the ceiling with an electrical box and a ring around where the trim goes. Mine are branded "atlite".

No this was a new work can. This did indeed slide onto a fixed piece in the ceiling with prongs to hold the reflector in. The socket piece had a flex whip that connected to a junction box. I left hose components in the ceiling though. The homeowner didn't like these chrome trims so he bought LED trims that simply clip onto the sheetrock. So I removed the flex whip from the junction box and stuck a romex in its place, connected to the new can-less trim.

Do you still plan to make this one into a high bay light?

At this point probably not. I'd like to use the reflector for something, since it's a nice powerful reflector. Haven't found a good use yet nor have I really had the time to dream up something unfortunately.

Just use it as is and put in an HID lamp and remote ballast it.

If you find a 100w MV F-can ballast, you could recreate a 100w MV recessed can light. I believe the HID model of this can light uses the same trim reflector piece.

True, I could make an HID can. I'm wondering if perhaps the socket piece is different, like cast aluminum with heat sinks? To better dissipate the heat. I really love polished aluminum can trims. I've never seen incandescent trims like these. Normally these trims are used with PLs.

My 50w PSMH/75w MV Lightolier can has a identical socket piece and I think the design was used with up to 150w PSMH lamps. I like those polished aluminium trims too. I normally see them with PL and HID cans around here. The Lightolier OEM HID ballasts only have the ballast core potted so you can disable the ignitor on the PSMH models to run MV lamps.

My 100w MV Prescolite can has a big beefy heatsinked cast aluminium socket piece but I think the same socket piece was used for the 175w and 250w MV cans. That can is so old it wasn't even equipped with a F-can or any kind of potted ballast for that matter. It just has a conventional core and coil ballast in a metal box lol.

Ah yes I remember you finding those Lightolier cans now. I was thinking of the Prescolite can but yeah, the heatsinking probably isn't needed for something like 100W HID. Do HIDs get any hotter than incandescent lamps? I'm thinking the amount of heat is similar but maybe not?
