Hera Lighting ER1 - ES1 economy halogen under cabinet lights (E1 light)
In early 2016, Eclectic-ware pretty much purchased all remaining ER1/ES1 excess stock that Hera had. We bought it in intervals over a several month period, this included the halogen transformers too, and the replacement parts. By the end of 2016, most of the rings and lenses as replacement parts sold out. But we still had lights and transformers, over a couple thousand lights.
The last of the Hera transformers sold out in early 2018. Thus, we did find a 60 watt, 12 volt, class 2 transformer to work in place of the Hera transformers. And we are still offering this new transformer for anyone who requires a replacement transformer. The Hatch PS1260 12 volt transformer info can be view at that link.
As of today, April 25, 2019, we sold the last of the E1 lights. ER1 and ES1 are the same light. Base number written on the back of the light under the Hera logo says E1.
It is our goal to still offer options!
So, for anyone looking to replace their ER1/ES1 lights that have finally worn out, here are the options we are suggesting:
A) We have a 12 volt LED light that is 3.2 watts, so equal light output to the 20 watt halogen bulbs. The 3000K version of that light is the same 'color' output of the halogen, that softer glow with a faint amber hue. This light will fit in the same 2-1/8" hole that the recessed version ER1 light fit into. If you require surface mount, there are optional surface mount rings. This light is the same overall diameter of the E1 light and looks very similar. Here's a picture to prove that:
So the Loox 2020 LED light is the BEST choice for fixing or upgrading from your halogen E1 lights. It comes in only these three finishes shown. So far, it is not available in white or gold, but we are working on that.
The Loox 2020 light can operate from the Hera 12 volt transformer. You can cut and splice wires. Or you can use them from their own 12 volt LED power drivers which come in an assortment of capacities to give you more option for new installations or retrofitting.
AND, for Carver and Formula Boats owners, this 12 volt light can run directly from your 12 volt DC. So for the millions of E1 Hera lights on boats, we have an awesome solution for changing out your lights. To top that off, this light is made of metal, front and back, and it is sealed. NO MORE RINGS will ever fall off, and it has an IP44 moisture rating. So as a boat light for your interior cabins, this is the way to go.
Plan B) This plan will not last as long since the KB12 halogen light from Hera is also discontinued. But we have a few left, and they are shown on the KB12 halogen light page. The KB12 light fits in the same hole, has the same wire on it, and we have some left in the white finish.
Plan C) We have just a few of the Tresco Xenon lights left in stock. They fit in the same 2-1/8" hole and have a surface mount option too. They are also discontinued. They are just like the halogen light and they will work from the 12 volt halogen transformers. A little wire splicing will be needed.
Plan D) There is still an abundance of the Hera Xenon lights left in stock. We have them in white, black, and stainless steel. There are hundreds, which eventually will be gone, but for now, we still have many. The Xenon light has an 18 watt Xenon bulb. If you are planning on recessing them, you would have to enlarge your 2-1/8" holes to 2-5/8" for the lights to fit. The Xenon light looks just like a blown up version of the E1. The XR1 and XS1 lights are 3-1/8" in overall diameter. And they are designed to work from the 12 volt halogen transformers.
Plan E) The Hera R55-LED light is the light Hera has intended to take over for the E1 halogen lights. It is 3 watts, so the equivalent of the 20 watt halogen. It comes in 4 finishes: white, black, stainless steel, and a matte chrome. It is a 24 volt light, so you must use it with the PS24V 24 volt LED power drivers. Thus you will need to string the wires from the lights back to the power driver location. A bit of work, but doable. The R55 -LED light is designed to fit into a 2-1/4" hole with its rear friction fit clips. The clips can be compressed more and it can be squeezed into the 2-1/8" hole since the back base of the light measure about 2-1/32". So you would only be putting the squeeze on the two metal flanges, not the light itself. The R55-LED light is about twice the price of the Loox 2020 light, this is why we suggested this plan last. But if you need a new LED light, and a high quality light, the R55-LED is a good way to go. For boat owners however, note that this is a 24volt light, it is not going to run on your 12 volt DC. You would have to run from your AC converter and then use the 24 volt drivers. So not practical. The Loox 2020 light is better for boats.
If considering lights for brand new installations, we definitely suggest the Loox 2020 LED lights. And the Loox 2020 light can be dimmable if you choose. Do note that LED lights dim on the low voltage side of the equation, not like the halogen lights where the dimming function precedes the transformer. Got questions about that, please ask.
