Xicato Achieves Light Density Breakthrough in XSM LED Module

Xicato, a leading developer of superior light quality from LED modules, announced today that its 4000 lumen XSM LED module achieves new levels of light output and light density without increasing the form factor or light emitting surface. This enables more light in applications and, it allows for better, tighter beam control from luminaires that incorporate the XSM light source.

The XSM 4000 is ideal for general lighting high ceiling applications and accent lighting applications that require center-beams of 30,000 candela (cd) and greater or very narrow light beams. Xicato's new 4000 lumen module enables luminaire manufacturers to compete for a larger portion of the ceramic metal halide lamp market which is prevalent in retail segments, and provide lower operating costs, ownership costs, while improving light quality. Implementation is easy as the form factor is exactly the same as all other XSM modules and an extensive ecosystem of drivers (including deep dimming), heat sinks, and reflectors have already been identified. For manufacturers already using Xicato's 3000 lumen module, the thermal class remains the same further simplifying portfolio expansion.

Remote phosphor light sources are known for their superior ability to maintain color and quality but as flux density increases, maintaining superior color and quality has been challenging. Xicato's new XSM 4000 lumen offering delivers the high flux and because of the company's Corrected Cold Phosphor Technology™, it does so while retaining stable color and consistency performance over its lifetime and therefore is covered by Xicato's unique 5 year color consistency and lumen maintenance warranty.

The XSM 4000 lumen Standard Series module is available now in 3000K, 3500K and 4000K correlated color temperatures (CCTs). Detailed product information and specifications can be found on Xicato's website.

About Xicato:
Xicato is changing the way the world sees and experiences light. We believe that with better light, shoppers will buy more, diners will order more and guests will be more comfortable and happier with their experiences. In turn, better lighting will contribute to higher sales, margins and brand value. Xicato has engineered new sources of light, Standard, Artist and Vibrant that capture the human preference for experiencing light in different ways and extend the range of choices for the lighting design community. The true value of Xicato light lies in delivering on the aesthetic and economic potential of LEDs: the quality of light, its efficacy and ownership cost for all environments including retail, hotels, restaurants, bars, museums and residences.
