Hera Lighting ER1 - ES1 economy halogen under cabinet lights (E1 light)

Hera halogen under counter lights
E-R1/E-S1 light colors: stainless steel look, chrome, black, white, gold.
This photo was taken a while ago, when all 5 light colors existed.
In August of 2015, Hera decided to stop production on Halogen lights and the halogen components.
We have slowly been selling off the surplus inventory. All white, chrome, and gold color lights are completely sold out. Below, we will offer information on the E1 light and explanations. We are also going to keep an on -going count of what remains and is available. There will also be notes about your alternatives.

The E1 light, also noted as ER1 and ES1 is Hera's economy halogen light. It has been called the Econoline light also. E1 is the base part number, ER1 represents the recessed mount (fits into a 2-1/8" hole), ES1 represents the surface mount (as you see in the picture above, the lights sit in the distance ring).

The lights were wildly offered in 2, 3, and 5 light kits with a transformer(s) since the mid 1990's. This light was also incredibly dominate for use in Carver Yachts and Formula Boats. It is a very popular cabin light in marine vessels since it can run directly from 12 volt DC in addition to its common household use of operating from low voltage transformers.

The most common packaging for this light was in surface mount sets. But when you remove and discard the distance ring on the ES1 version of the light, you have the ER1 version. The most common application also came with 20 watt halogen bulbs and a frosted lens. At one time, clear replacement lenses did exist, but normally the light came with a frosted lens. Our remaining stock primarily has 10 watt bulbs pre-installed. The light can use either a 10 watt or 20 watt. The bulb is a G4 bi-pin base. So any halogen or Xenon bulb that is a G4 base and 20 watts or less, can be used in this fixture.

We have 12 volt 60 watt transformers! Click that web link to see the new option that we have.

Other very popular uses for the Hera E1 light over the years have been: under cabinet lighting, medicine cabinet lighting, bathroom valance lighting, headboard lights, motor home interior lighting, and other furniture pieces. The lights have been used in residential and commercial applications. For quick identification of the E1 light, you will see "E1" under the Hera logo on the very backside of the light:

So, for a lot of years, Eclectic-ware did offer the E1 halogen lights in kits for new under cabinet lighting installs , and many of the other applications we just mentioned above. NOW, we are primarily offering them as replacements for 15 to 25 year old lights that are still out there and need replacing. Since Hera has discontinued the 12 volt transformers along with the lights, we do not promote them for new installs. They are now mostly for replacing lights that have finally gone bad.
[If you are looking for a extremely nice light for under counter lighting, boat cabins, or other applications to take the place of the Hera E1, check out the Loox 2020 LED lights.]

The original Hera catalog page with additional information has been left on our web page for your reference. After you scroll down past it, we will tell you what we have left and your options.

FOR NEW INSTALLATIONS : If you are looking for 2, 3, or 5 light kits, like the ER1/ES1 light was available in for over 20 years, we have a plan. The Loox 2020 LED light looks a lot like the Hera E1. It can be recessed in the same 2-1/8" hole. You can surface mount them too if you like. There are only 3 finishes, not five. So you have to select from polished chrome, matte nickel (stainless steel look), or matte black. And when using them on the 20 watt LED driver, you can attach 1 to 6 lights. The 20 watt driver has 6 light ports for easy plug and play connection. So you could make a 4-light or 6-light kit too. This is a MUCH better idea for new installs to use a currently made light system. For a heck of a lot more information on the Loox 2020 LED light, follow that link.

Hera just found a bunch of the KB1210WH 10 watt white lights in their stock. Fits in the same 2-1/8" hole as the E1. And we grabbed them. HER-KB1210WH @ $28.59

If you are looking for the white, stainless steel look, chrome, or gold lights, whether recessed or surface mounted, those are completely sold out. Doubtful that you will find them anywhere as we are probably the only Hera distributor with any halogen inventory left. We do not have any surface mount black or stainless steel finish either, just the recessed lights noted above.

If you need chrome lights or matte nickel (stainless steel look), check out this page: Loox 2020 LED lights

We have a few of the Tresco Xenon lights in White and a brushed nickel finish.

We have 12 volt 60 watt halogen transformers. Yes, for real. Check out that page.

ABOUT the 10 watt lights:
Hera offered us a close out deal on several of the recessed version of the E1 light. They had a surplus on those prepackaged with a 10 watt bulb. So we are able to offer those at a lower price. The ER1 and ES1 light are the same light. The ER110, ES110, ER120, ES120 are all the same chassis. The front decor ring, the lens, aluminum reflector, all the same. The packaging was just different over the years. The light is best referred to as the E1. So for those we have left, if you want to change out the 10 watt bulb with a 20 watt, you can. If you are using LED pins in your lights, you can still do so. The ER110 and ES120 lights that we have left are the same light that has been offered since the 1990's.

So for anyone looking for just the REPLACEMENT DECOR RINGS AND LENSES for the front of the light, sorry, Hera discontinued those parts at the same time in August 2015. There are no more rings or lenses left for the E1 lights. [AND the KB12 decor rings and lenses, though the same size, ARE NOT interchangeable with the E1 rings and lens.] What we can offer is: many of our customer over the last couple years have already used the ring and lens from a new light on their existing lights. They are the same. Twist about 1/4 to 3/8" counter clockwise to remove, wiggle off, and you have access to changing the bulb. Rings then push back on while aligning the 3 plastic tabs over the slots in the aluminum reflector, twist about 3/8" clockwise to lock in place. Very easy to get them crooked, so watch how you wiggle them over the aluminum reflector.

While our supply of black, chrome, and the stainless steel finish remains, that is one way to fix your existing lights. If any of your old lights look like they might be ready to fall apart in the recessed hole, you can replace them entirely with the new light. If you need a 20 watt light output, you can change the bulb. If you have the issue of, you cannot run the wires back to the transformer, you can CUT AND SPLICE the wires. It is a twin white wire and one side is marked with grey writing or dashes on it to keep the polarity straight. Same is true for boat installations, if you want to cut and splice your wiring, you can.

If you do not want the quick and easy approach to fixing your E1 lights, or replacing them with the same light, we do have an LED option. It will be a little more expensive at first, but will greatly payoff over the years. We have the Loox 2020 LED light from Hafele. Highlights: Same size as the E1, can fit in the same 2-1/8" hole, diffused lens, 3.2 watt (equal to 20 watt halogen), all metal sealed casing (NO RINGS TO EVER FALL OFF AGAIN), rated for 50,000 hours (NO BULBS TO CHANGE AGAIN), comes in polished chrome, matte black or brushed nickel, then warm white or cool white light output. Advantages: I just told you some, but for boat owners, running a lot of 3.2 watt lights instead of 20 watt lights is a big savings on your boat batteries. And you will never have the decor rings falling to the floor or counters. A lot less heat. And you can cut and splice their twin wire into your existing wiring. There is a ton more info on the Loox 2020 LED light if you follow that link.

Many customers have asked us how the Loox 2020 LED light looks in comparison to the Hera E1 light. Well, we were able to take a picture before completely running out of the E1 lights. Shown below are the 3 finishes of the Loox 2020 light, next to the 3 corresponding Hera finishes. The Chrome light we showed as a surface mount. All three finishes come prepackaged as a recessed light. But you can order the surface mount rings to make any of them surface mounted. The Loox LED lights are the top row: matte black, chrome, and matte nickel. The Hera E1 lights are the bottom row: black, chrome, stainless steel look.
Loox 2020 to Hera E1 all three finishes shown

For Loox 2020 LED light part numbers and pricing, follow that link. The Loox 2020 light is ALL METAL, front and back. Not plastic like the Hera E1 light. It is sealed, no rings to fall off. No bulbs to change. And it will sit flatter on the surface it is recessed into. A lot more info is provide on the Loox 2020 page.
