The XFL line of linear lights includes premium Vivid White, High Density, Full-Natural Spectrum, Tunable, Dim-to-Warm, RGBW, Neon and Specialty lights. Unique to Xicato, the XFL line also offers options that closely match the Xicato color point in XTM/XOB series of spot lights to make a perfect lighting complement.

This new ability with Xicato spot and linear sources, enables the lighting designer the freedom to fulfill the architecture design targets, all with beautiful whites and vibrant color rendering for which Xicato lights are famous.

"When seeking for a trusted source for high quality LED lighting solutions, Xicato immediately comes to mind, especially in today's market where quality and reliability are often compromised."  said Stephan Blass, Buschfeld CEO. "Xicato has been at the forefront of LED lighting innovation for over a decade.  It is encouraging to see that they have brought this expertise to the flexible linear segment with a comprehensive line of high-quality next generation LED lights with options that match the Xicato color point."

The smart enabled linear lights are part of Xicato's end-to-end solutions with a host of approved 3rd party AC driver options that eliminate the need for additional controls wiring and support Xicato Bluetooth Mesh controls. This wireless option enables the smart XFL line to have complete support of Xicato Controls Panel software, sensors, switches and gateway, all backed by Xicato services. Designers can configure sophisticated scenes with thousands of nodes alongside any combination of linear and spot lights while achieving energy efficiency targets set by their end customer.

"Xicato's holistic approach with smart linear lights positions the XFL line above any other offering in the market, enabling the designers to create sophisticated lighting scenarios no matter what kind of light source the job calls for" said Amir Zoufonoun, Xicato's CEO. "The addition of XFL portfolio to our extensive family of smart controls, spot lights and smart drivers allows Xicato to provide a high quality one-stop-shop for customers and partners who are involved at the building project level and need to streamline their product selection and procurement processes."

All the new XFL linear sources are part of Xicato Onboard, a series of embeddable products by which any 3rd party luminaire or device can be upgraded to be wirelessly controlled and monitored via Bluetooth mesh and operate seamlessly with Xicato's award winning Controls Platform.
