FP1247-AL5-48LFC: 48-in White LED 5CCT Flat Panel Ceiling Light with Brushed Nickel Aluminum Frame
Power usage (watts)?
Lamp wattage is 40W.
My fixture makes noises once it’s turned off. Is that normal? A clicking noise about 15 seconds apart.
That can be normal. It is caused by expansion. It should go away after time, but if it does not, please reach out to customer service at 1-800-291-8838 for warranty replacement. We are available Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm CST.
Which wall dimmer is compatible?
This fixture is dimmable by specific forward phase electronic (triac) dimmers. Dimmers tested to be compatible with this fixture are the Lutron: Skylark® SCL-153P*, Diva® DVCL-153P*, Maestro® MACL-153M*, Toggler® TGCL-153P*, Lumea® LECL-153P*, Caseta® PD-6WCL*, Eaton Halo® SAL06P*. (This list of dimmers does not imply any guarantee or warranty of compatibility with a particular application. Dimmers not listed do not imply non-compatibility.)
The instructions call for grounding the light, but there are no ground wires on the fixture
The ground wire is on the bracket.
Can you convert this light to use DC power?
The drivers in the fixture are designed to take 120V AC and turn it into DC voltage at a certain voltage and current depending on the circuit design of that fixture. The driver also contains the WiFi controls and circuitry to adjust the power to the LEDs which changes the color of the white light. You cannot bypass this driver and provide DC voltage directly to the LEDs. We currently do not have a AC/DC dual input driver that would address this need. You must make a DC to AC power converter or a generator that RVs can use so you have access to standard appliances.
Installation instructions, would like to view
The installation instructions for this fixture are under "Downloads" for this item # on the product page.
Can this fixture be suspended instead of flush mounted?
We do not recommend installing this fixture in any way other than the instructions advise.
What does linkable mean?
If a fixture is linkable, it means you can link one fixture to another with the included linking cord. This fixture is not linkable.
How do I change to soft white brightness?
This fixture should have a CCT switch on the driver which is located on the back side of the panel. You would use that to change the color temperature of the fixture. The panel does need to come down for the color temperature to be changed.
I want to put three FP1247 light panels in my kitchen ceiling, but only have one wall switch to run them to (120v on 20 amp breaker). Can I power more than one light on the same wall dimmer switch? Or does each panel light require its own wall switch? Thank you!
The fixtures can be put on the same switch, but they cannot be wired in series. They all need to be on their own junction boxes.
This is an LED fixture so it does not contain diodes. Instead it has permanent integrate LED diodes. If the fixture fails within the warranty period, please reach out to customer service at 1-800-291-8838 for technical support and/or warranty replacement.We are available Monday through Friday 8:30 am to 5:00 pm CST.
What is the AMP requirement for this light fixture?
Electrical requirement is 120V 60hz.
How do you adjust the 5 selectable light settings?
There is a CCT slide switch located on the driver on the back of the panel that allows the color temperature of the light to be adjusted between 5 values: 6500K, 5000K, 4000K, 3000K, 2700K.
Can this light be installed without an electrical box above? Does the fixture qualify as the electrical box?
We do not recommend installing this fixture without a junction or electrical box.
Does good earth lighting use aluminum wiring for the service connection
Aluminum wiring is not recommended as the issue is with the connections. Since aluminum and copper expands and contracts at different rates and this over time can create loose connections and high resistance. Most of our fixtures are provided with connectors and those connectors are not allowed for use with aluminum wiring.
Do you have to use Wi-Fi to use this light?
This is not a Wi-Fi fixture. The color temperature can be switched with the CCT switch on the back of the panel and it can be installed on a dimmer.
What is the warranty on the 48" aluminum led 5cct flat panel flush mount model # FP1247-AL5-48LFC?
Quality assurance guaranteed with a 10-year limited manufacture warranty.
Does this light fixture need to be centered over the electrical box, or can it be installed with the box behind one end or the other?
As long as the fixture's mounting bracket is properly secured to the junction box.
Do you make this one as a smart light?
We have a smart version of this fixture in a black finish, FP1247-BLK-48LFW. And a 24-inch ceiling light in nickel, FP1247-AL5-24LFW.
I need a new mounting bracket for this light fixture. The light fell and when the safety chain caught hold, keeping it from falling to the floor, the bracket bent on the side with chain.
