Retrofit products should be robust and easy to use. The short mogul Beacon is a continuation of that philosophy.

LED lighting manufacturer Evluma announces the release of a short mogul base version of the Clearlight 50W Beacon LED retrofit for dusk-till-dawn fixtures. This shorter version of the Beacon places the light source higher up in the fixture for those customers who wish to use the refractor optics of the legacy device to modify the light distribution. The short version of the Clearlight Beacon is also available with a medium (E26) base, or a GU-24 adapter, opening up the Clearlight line for use in Commercial and Industrial applications, such as can lights, soffit lights and garage lights.
The short mogul Beacon is 7.67 inches long and places the LED light source about two inches up into the refractor depending on the fixture manufacturer. The original Beacon, with a length of 10.21 inches typically places the LED light source flush with the bottom of the refractor. Evluma has developed various bracket kits over the years to address customer preference regarding the positioning of the LED light source within the refractor, says the company. For some, the shorter Beacon may meet their requirements.
While Evluma anticipates there will always be a demand for customized positioning, the Beacon will maintain the simplicity of the Clearlight direct screw-in retrofit. Self-ballasted, no other adjustments or assembly is required, says the company. However, for added energy savings Evluma recommends wiring around the ballast, which will continue to run and drawn electricity otherwise. “Retrofit products should be robust and easy to use,” said Keith Miller, President and CEO of Evluma. “The short mogul Beacon is a continuation of that philosophy.”
Like the original Beacon and the EcoSpot, these new models are UL approved and carry a 5 year warranty. Short Beacon models have been approved by the Lighting Design Lab in Seattle, WA. Clearlights are manufactured in Seattle, WA from US and imported parts. Evaluation samples are currently in the field.
