The PHOS by Prescolite Wins Best New Product of the Year at LIGHTFAIR International 1999.
Prescolite has released Phos/VSL, a new category of surface downlights. Phos/VSL mounts on the surface of a ceiling like a canopy-mount track fixture, but provides glare-free general area lighting by means of recessed downlight optics.
The product is comprised of a thermoplastic, injection-molded housing with a patented Prescolite Virtual Source reflector optic. The spun aluminum reflector exterior is completely visible and forms an integral part of design.
Ballasts are patented Prescolite Intellectplus electronic ballasts designed with end of life protection and exclusive surge-resistant low in-rush current. A unique lamp socket allows both triple and quad compact fluorescent lamps to be accommodated by Phos/VSL, in both single and two lamp combinations spanning 26, 32 and 42 watts.
