older recessed light fixtures


I'm trying to determine if the recessed light cans in my ceiling are IC rated. They are at least 10 years old. The model number is CAT71C. I suspect this is an old Halo number.

Perhaps that is 7 IC which would indicate an IC can.

H7ICAT is a Halo number.

I was able to clean off some paint that was covering the labels on the inside of the cans. They are 6" Halos, and they are indeed IC rated.
