In EURODICAUTOM (http://eurodic.ip.lu:8086//cgi-bin/edicbin/expert.pl#1) I found "bulkhead fitting" with a reliability index of 5, which is the maximum one. That means that the Terminology Office of the European Commission accepts "bulkhead fitting" as a 100% correct translation for "plafón" in the context of electric lighting.
Definition: a plain lighting fitting of dimensions usually not exceeding 40 cm,intended to be fixed directly on a vertical or horizontal surface.
