The RETRO Series Line of Products

RETRO-Fusion™ 2.0 

Canto Retro Fusion 2 Image

With the RETRO-Fusion 2.0 being lighter and lower profile, along with a beveled top edge, it is able to squeeze into more shallow fixtures without having the lens protrude from the front of the trim ring. That reduces any type of glare. Now featuring field-swappable bases and a removable safety cable. This new design opens up more opportunities and applications.

RETRO-Passive® 2.0

Being fanless, the RETRO-Passive 2.0 is perfect for sound-sensitive spaces like museums and concert halls. They also have heavier heat sinks to compensate for not having active cooling.

RETRO-HPL Series Availability

The RETRO-HPL is a direct replacement for existing Source 4 PARs in the marketplace, especially those used for house lights.

Save for a Brighter Future

When our customers are looking for an upgrade to their existing lighting system, we often recommend our RETRO series. They can be used as a direct replacement of existing lamps and ordered in custom or standard mounting options. They are also professional performance grade 0-100% phase dimmable (forward and reverse) and can be integrated with current lighting systems to utilize existing electrical infrastructures in place. Furthermore, all our RETRO LED’s are Energy Star Certified, providing users with energy cost savings as well as rebates offered by local power companies. Let’s take a closer look at how much energy savings can be achieved by making the switch to our RETRO 500. 

A typical auditorium facility may be fitted with a 500 watt incandescent lamp (based on an average ceiling height of 25 feet). Canto USA recommends replacing this with a RETRO 500, which provides a brighter lumen output at a lower power output (49 watts for the RETRO 500 vs. 500 watts for the incandescent lamp). If we assume a typical auditorium requires 20 light fixtures that are in use for 15 hours/week, we are looking at energy savings of 7,035.6KWH/year, which equates to approximately $844.27 in cost savings per year. 

Retro Energy Savings Chart

This cost savings is not inclusive of rebates or maintenance costs (lift rental, labor, lamp carrying costs, etc…), which amount to significant savings on the back end annually. All our RETRO’s can easily be installed in-house without the need to hire an electrical contractor in most cases. Each LED fixture provides 54,000 hours of light source removing the need for annual lamp replacements as well. The ease of installation and maintenance minimizes the disruption of potential facility downtime. 

As such, our customers are always happy when making the switch to our RETRO LED’s, which contribute to substantial energy reduction, lower maintenance and ongoing costs, and improved quality of lighting, all of which cannot be found in your typical store-bought lighting products.

Checking Back with the Town of Cary

Home to world-class business and national retail stores, we check back in with the Town of Cary, located in the heart of the Triangle area of North Carolina. Three years ago, Cailen Waddell (Program Supervisor of Technical Operations for the Town of Cary) and Andrew Fisher (Bandit Lites) reached out to the team at Canto USA to find a lighting solution for the Town Council Chambers. They were looking for an LED retrofit solution that would provide superior performance to the existing luminaires, with wide optics, high output and smooth dimming on camera. Furthermore, as the town had identified lamp replacements in the Council Chambers as high-risk due to maintenance staff having to change lamps over steep sloped seating risers, they needed something with simple installation and easy maintenance.

The Town of Cary procured 20 RETRO-Classic’s at a tungsten-perfect 2700 Kelvin CCT to replace their existing Halogen lamps. The installation was a simple process that was completed in-house in half a day. The fixtures were installed directly into the existing mini-candelabra sockets and worked seamlessly with their current dimming system. “Everything has been working great [since the replacement]!” said Cailen Waddell. “The factory was great about working with us to make sure we got the right lenses for the fixtures, so we haven’t had to make any changes since. Our biggest issue [when finding the replacement] was one of maintenance and man hours accessing house lights over steeply raked seats and the aesthetic concerns of fixtures being out. The RETRO-Classic addressed all those concerns.”

At Canto USA we strive to provide our customers with satisfaction in both product performance and customer service. There is no doubt that the Town of Cary was satisfied with both. “We will likely continue to look at Canto Followspot options as we build additional facilities” said Cailen.
