FR68-LED 4watt Diffused Cabinet Spotlight

Hera Lighting section index

Very Flat Recessed LED Spotlight with Frosted Lens

Hera's FR68-LED is perfectly flat and a very low rise off the surface when recessed mounted. The frosted lens helps reduce glare and eliminates diode dots for a sleeker look, and to get rid of the blinking effect of seeing spots in your head for the next 5 minutes if you happen to look directly at it. The optional distance rings allow for surface mounting without having to bore holes in the bottoms of your upper cabinets.

Ordering Note:
The FR68-LED light is 4 watts. Up to 7 lights can run from one PS24V/30/S driver. On the 75 watt driver, PS24V/75/S, technically up to 18 lights can operate from the one driver with use of a terminal block extender. On our LED Power Drivers and Dimmers page, you will see your aditional choices of available drivers, dimming accessories, extension cables, and switches that are available for these lights. Please refer to that page to complete your order for selecting drivers for the lights. We are showing the 30 watt and 75 watt drivers on this page since they are the most popular used with the FR68-LED light. If planning on using the lights at full power, and not making a dimmable system, all you need is the power driver which can plug into a switch controlled outlet. If you do opt for a dimmable system, the dimming controls can act as your on/off switch as well.

There is an option of a 6 watt driver on that page also. A 6 watt driver can handle just one FR68-LED light. In some applications, you might use just one light. So the smallest driver is fine for that. When you are setting up separarate zones of light, 3 here, 4 over there, 10 in long bank of cabinets, etc., when you want to control those areas (zones) independent of each other, you will need a power driver per zone. If you wish to control 3 lights over here and 5 on the other side of the kitchen at the same time on the same switch, if you can run extension wires to the other side of the room, then you could run all the lights from one driver and save money by not having extra drivers. Many different set ups can be accomplished. We are here to help.

Whenever you have any questions about your set up and what you may require, you are welcome to e-mail us or give us a call.

The FR68-LED lights are friction fit when recessed. When surface mounting, they snap into the surface mount rings very snugly and neatly. They are a good looking LED light. The diagrams below show the dimensions on the lights and distance ring, and also give examples of the mounting methods. Surface mount rings are optional items.
(February 9, 2024: The DIR68/MC surface mount ring was recently discontinued. So surface mount for the matte chrome finish is not an option any more.)

What we stock:
We stock the FR68 light in modest quantities in the 3000K in both matte chrome and stainless steel finishes. And then the 4000K in small quantities. We keep the 30 watt and 75 watt drivers in stock, as well as many accessories. When we need to order additional lights, it is generally a 3 to 5 day lead time for us to receive more. Direct ships are possible as well on larger orders.

In the mounting methods diagram, it shows how you can recessed holes completely through your cabinet bottom, or technically mock cabinet bottom since drilling holes completely through the real bottom is not how we would do it. Then it also shows a recess depth without going completely through your cabinet bottom, a more appropriate approach. Recess depth needed is only 1/2". Most cabinetry made of 5/8" thick material will accommodate this. Cabinet boxes made with 3/4" give you even more breathing room - and strength.

Lights should be mounted no closer than 8" on center together, this is due to heat dissipation, and they are 4 watts. Spacing them too close together and using too many in one area will create too much light. Most under cabinet spacing is anywhere from 16" to 30" apart. It all depends on your layout, length of cabinet banks, number of cabinets, counter space, and personal preference of how much light you would like.

Note on the recessed mount, you should drill a through hole for the lead wire to fish through and to thus hide it from the surface. When using the surface mount rings, you can do the same thing, you can run the wire through the cabinet(s) to hide the wire. But the surface mount rings also have a small notch on the side that touches the underside of the cabinet. You can run the wire straight out the side of the light and then in any direction needed to make it look presentable. Thus, no drilling into your cabinets, bookshelves, headboards, or entertainment centers when surface mounting should you desire.
