I have a customer who said she saw a program on TV that showed a retrofit trim for halo recessed 120v lighting that can change it to a halogen fixture. I guess it would be low voltage.She hasI Halo H7ICT cans. Has anyone else seen anything like this? I can't find anything in their catalog.
Thanks

Yes, I saw it. There were a lot of them retrofit into a national chain store that we used to do maintenance work for.

Can't say if it was Halo, or a spin-off brand

One had a LV xfr on a screwshell that you screwed into the can socket, and then put a MR-16 in the LV socket.

Can't say if it had a UL sticker; it was about 2-3 years back. (Probably a asian import)

Juno has had somthing like that too. I guessing you don't see em much cause the looks and price.

#424 baffel looks like a 3" can addapted to fit in a 6" can.
#427 cylinder spotlight in baffel. They have something that looks the same that is not low voltage.
