Vectra - Recessed

Vectra combines distinctive styling with Ledalite’s revolutionary MesoOptics technology to bring the best of nature’s luminous aesthetics to indoor environments. Pure, comfortable brightness is evenly distributed throughout the space with exceptional glare control and energy efficiency.


Controlled brightness

MesoOptics technology enables superior visual comfort by delivering uniform brightness with exceptional glare control.


Sustainable building designers and building owners benefit with dramatic energy savings—up to 20% increased efficiency and 35% energy cost-savings over conventional recessed lighting systems.

Take your pick

Extensive lamping options and a range of housing sizes and configurations meet the needs of almost any recessed lighting application. The petite 1'x1' micro version is an ideal companion for corridors, meeting rooms, lobbies and other feature areas.

No tools required

Ledalite’s recessed lighting systems provide lamp and ballast access from below the ceiling without tools for quick and easy relamping and maintenance.

Exceptional Control and Efficiency

MesoOptics technology allows Vectra to have the best possible combination of lighting control and brightness with efficiencies that are almost 20% higher than other recessed lighting products.

Reduced Energy Consumption

When attempting to achieve a light level of 50 footcandles, most 2’x2’ recessed lighting systems will require two 40W TT5 lamps. Vectra requires only a single 55W TT5 lamp to meet this lighting level—a 35% reduction in lighting related energy costs.

Recessed Applications Guide

Vectra comes with a range of lamping options to suit a wide variety of lighting and energy efficiency needs. The chart to the right illustrates some of the options and their typical results.
