These xenon ultra-slim cabinet lights are low-profile, long-lasting and dimmable. The color rendering index of their light output is a perfect 100, and the lights are available in four finishes to match your decor. Use these low voltage puck lights in cabinets, display cases, exhibits, offices, medical work stations and bars for a striking effect that provides quality task lighting. Also ideal for under cabinet lighting.

Required Accessories Sold Separately

  • One 12-volt electronic transformer is required for powering the puck lights. Be sure to select a transformer with a wattage rating equal to or slightly greater than the total wattage of the puck lights being powered.
  • Calculating Total Wattage: to determine the transformer you need, calculate the total wattage rating of your installation by multiplying the number of puck lights you intend to power by 10 watts. For example, for 3 puck lights, you would need to select a transformer rated for at least 30 watts (3 Puck Lights x 10W/puck = 30W).

Optional Accessories Sold Separately

  • Terminal Block: use to create good, tight electrical connections.
  • Multi-Tap Connectors: connect multiple light fixtures to one electronic transformer.

Bought these to replace an existing fixture. Couldn't find exact, but this was very close.
Prefer the back reflector to be hammered (better light diffusion ) than the smooth metal on this Pegasus model.

Great Lights and Great Price!

Submitted by |

Bought six of these to hardwire in under my cabinets. Did not go with the number of lights recommended. Instead, I went with one light per cabinet door and this has provided all the lighting needed. The install did take a little work, but not difficult. I bought 16 gauge wire and pulled from each light to the transformer. Very easily to install and remained hidden under the cabinet.

Xenon slim puck lights

Submitted by |

They are slim which is very nice. They are advertised as zen on lights however package says they are halogen lights. Had to supply my own screws as screws supplied were over 1/2in high and inferior quality. What cabinet bottoms have material greater than 1/2in in depth? Certainly not mine. Made rather cheap and each light has only 18in of lead wire to connect to power supply. Like you are going to install six lights all within a 3 foot area?! Had to cut the wires from each light and run my own 18-2 AWG wire from light to power supply. Also had to splice the connector to 18 AWG for the connector to fit in power supply,,,,lots of work.

Pros:
Slim design

Cons:
Many...see review

Good for the purpose

Submitted by |

I recently bought some of these lights for my kitchen remodel. I had an electrician hardwire the transformer, then I did the remainder of the installation myself. I do not think you need as many of the lights as indicated in the directions, consistent with one of the other reviews. I went with one light per cabinet door except two under a larger corner area. Also consistent with a different review, I agree the screw quality was lacking, even with a predrilled hole. I had to be very careful not to strip the screws. I was a little confused when I first received the lights, they were labeled as halogen, however they give you a xenon bulb to swap out. I ended up having to go back to order an additional multitap connector, some terminal blocks, and picked up some extra 18 gauge wire to run everything. They don't end up reaching quite as far as you think they will. Once installed, they give off great light, are dimmable, and my 3/4 inch light rail pretty effectively masks the installation so I'm happy with the result for the cost.

Pros:
Low cost Great light Low profile

Cons:
Screws Installation takes some extra parts and wire beyond what is recommended in accessories tab

Cost-effective and Functional

Submitted by |

Bought these because they are hard wired and dimmable. They were easy to install, came with additional bulbs and look great. They do have a fairly focused beam so you can (a) go with the included diffuser lens or (b) go with the Pegasus number of recommended lights (I went with fewer than they recommended). Only part of my order transmitted and Pegasus called me to make sure I had all the items I would need for the install. Awesome service, and a solid product. They look nice under my kitchen cabinets.

Pros:
Easy install Hard wired Dimmable Compact - so they hide well beneath the cabinets

Cons:
Light is more focal than expected. Would like a wider beam.

Small but not too convenient for a wall niche

Submitted by |

I wanted something small enough to fit in our wall niche and this fit the bill. It is small and compact. The only big downside is that the cap doesn't unscrew off counter clockwise as it states. In fact once you push it in, it is very difficult to remove the cap to change the light without significant effort. This really messed up the installation of the niche light. Finally we figured out that if you press the sides at exactly 2 spots, the cap comes off. I have trouble doing it because if you don't do it right, it will not come off. So I give it 3 stars...looks good but will be so difficult to change the light bulbs when mounted in a wall niche.

Xenon slim lights

Submitted by |

I believe the lights are going to work well. However they were not the easiest to install. The screws provided were very inferior. They tended to screw in sideways. Possible cause... quality of the screw. And the stamp out of the base piece had a rim. Also the screw tended to strip. I ended up using different screws. I used my existing wiring and did not need the other accessories that I purchased and I have returned them.

Pros:
Slim height, price and service

Cons:
Poor installation instructions and poor quality of mounting parts.

Ask a Question

Question from George:

I test installed the light and it is too dim. Can I put a 20 watt lamp in this fixture? It will be above the countertop so no enclosure below it.

Answer from Pegasus:

George, I would not recommend placing a higher wattage lamp in the puck light due to heat concerns.

Question from George:

Received these lights and the packaging says they are Halogen. Someone commented that they had Xenon bulbs included and had to swap them out. There are no bulbs in the box to swap. Are these Halogen or Xenon??

Answer from Pegasus:

George, they are xenon. The manufacturer used to sell them with halogen bulbs and include spare xenon light bulbs. They have since changed it to only include xenon bulbs but they did not update the packaging. I'm so sorry for the confusion. We have asked Nora Lighting to change the packaging but they have not.

Question from George:

The description states Recessed Mounted: if this fixture is recessed mounted, it needs a cutout hole diameter of 2-1/8in and a hole depth of only 9/16in with the outer trim sticking out only 0.25in. Question is: doesn't not drilling through the cabinet base cause excessive heat buildup in the fixture?

Answer from Pegasus:

Heat is projected with incandescent sources - so the concern is the heat directing down and out of the fixture. It will not cause excessive heat buildup as long as you have adequate ventilation. We generally recommend 1 cubic foot of space per puck for proper ventilation.

Question from Craig:

How are these connected to the 110 source, and does this come with a dimmer?

Answer from Pegasus:

No, it does not include a dimmer. This product requires a low voltage transformer to connect to 120V. The transformer transformers the line voltage down to the 12V required for the lamp. Basically your line voltage will wire to the transformer which in turn will wire to the light fixture.

Question from Amanda:

I am interested in doing the surface mount for this product. I want to attach these to a thin shelf. How long are the screws to surface mount it?

Answer from Pegasus:

The included screws are about 0.5in in length.

Question from Allen:

I would like to put two of these under each cab. It appears I can use one transformer for two lights. Is this accurate? If so, where can I purchase the light without the kit?

Answer from Pegasus:

Allen, As long as your transformer is rated for 20W, then yes you can use one transformer for two of these puck lights. We offer these puck lights individually and not as kits. Simply add the two puck lights of your desired finish to your cart and then visit the Accessories section on this page for information about transformers and helpful connectors.

Question from David:

How do you wire in a dimmer for a 3 light kit? Do you put the dimmer on the 120v input or on the low voltage side?

Answer from Pegasus:

David, Power will connect to your dimmer, which in turn will connect to the transformer, which in turn will connect to the lights.

Question from Adalgisa Constanzo-Muller:

I am buying 7 of these. 3 for the first level of entertainment center (i.e., top), then 2 go on second level and another 2 below it. I have hardwire access at 2 levels. So 3 puck lights for one access, 2 for another, and 2 for another. How many transformers do I need and what type. What else do I need?

Answer from Pegasus:

For the top level powering 3 puck lights, select a 60W hardwire transformer and a 3 fixture multi-tap connector. For the second level powering the other 4 puck lights, select a 60W hardwire transformer and a 6 fixture multi-tap connector.

Question from Mary Ellen:

I have 4 glass upper cabinets to light...they are 28in wide and 18in high...is one of the xenon ultra slim puck lights enough for each or should I get two per cabinet? Also I'm confused about the transformer...the electrician said they would be hard wired....so can I hide the transformer on top of the cabinets. And which one should I purchase?

Answer from Pegasus:

Mary, I would recommend at least 2 lights per 28in. In terms of the transformer, simply multiple the total # of puck lights by 10W for your total wattage rating. Then select a hardwire transformer equal to or slightly greater than this total. If you use a total of 8 puck lights that would mean you need a transformer rated for at least 80W.

Question from Gab:

Do they provide warm (yellow) light or white light? How many Ks?

Answer from Pegasus:

Gab, Kelvin temp is 2800K, which is warm white, almost the exact same as traditional incandescent.

Question from Lisa:

How many come in each pack? One or two?

Answer from Pegasus:

Lisa, These are sold individually.

Question from Peter:

What is a transformer? Is it necessary when you are connecting these lights to a switch?

Answer from Pegasus:

Yes, a transformer is necessary for these lights regardless of your setup. A transformer transforms your line voltage down to a lower voltage - generally either 12 or 24 volts. These lights require 12 volts.
