eW Cove MX Powercore

    Premium interior linear cove and accent luminaire with single temperature white light

    eW Cove MX Powercore delivers the highest light output in the line of solid white linear cove lights from Color Kinetics. eW Cove MX Powercore can be used for accent lighting and indirect general illumination, as well as the full range of wall and ceiling cove applications. eW Cove MX Powercore meets or exceeds the performance of comparable linear fluorescent strip cove lights while lowering installation, energy, and maintenance costs. eW Cove MX Powercore offers environmentally conscious buyers a green, energy–efficient lighting solution without sacrificing quality or quantity of light.

    Product Summary and Specification Sheets


    • Lower cost than comparable fluorescent strip lighting
      With efficacy of up to 58.5 lm/W, competitive pricing, long useful life, and low-maintenance operation, eW Cove MX Powercore represents a cost-effective alternative to traditional cove lights, offering lower first and total cost than dimmable T5 and 2-lamp T8 strip lights in typical cove applications.

    • Multiple levels of power consumption
      12.5 W/ft luminaires offer high-intensity light output of up to 696 lumens per foot. 8 W/ft luminaires are factory-set to a lower maximum power consumption level to support ASHRAE standards, LEED green building certification, and other power-limited projects.

    • Integrates patented Powercore technology
      Powercore rapidly, efficiently, and accurately controls power output to luminaires directly from line voltage, eliminating the need for external power supplies and lowering total system cost.

    • Smooth dimming capability
      Patented DIMand technology offers smooth dimming capability with the DM-1000 0-10 V ELV Dimmer or selected reverse-phase ELV-type dimmers. More about dimming »

    • Simple installation
      Powercore delivers line voltage directly to the luminaires, simplifying installation and allowing long product runs. Easy-to-install 1.2 m (4 ft) mounting tracks allow quick project setup in linear applications.

    • Two lengths and multiple color temperature options for design and application flexibility
      305 mm (1 ft) and 1.2 m (4 ft) luminaires are available in 2200 K, 2700 K, 3000 K, 3500 K, and 4000 K for applications calling for warm, neutral, or cool white light.

    • Very warm white light
      2200 K luminaires produce an inviting golden light comparable to halogen and xenon dimmed to 50%, but without sacrificing efficacy, lumen output, or quality of light.

    • Support for multiple voltages
      Accepts power input of 100 to 277 VAC, allowing consistent installation in any location around the world.

    • Industry-best white-light quality and color consistency
      Advances in Optibin, Color Kinetics' proprietary binning optimization process, now provides color-consistency within a 2-step MacAdam ellipse across eW Cove product luminaires and manufacturing runs.

    • Easy mounting and positioning
      With end-to-end locking power connectors that can make turns of up to 180°, luminaires are easy to reposition in even the most challenging mounting circumstances. Luminaires rotate in 10° increments through a full 180° for precise aiming and color mixing. Optional mounting tracks support vertical and overhead positioning. 305 mm (1 ft) and 1.5 m (5 ft) jumper cables can add extra space between luminaires.
