Xicato Introduces New Artist Module and Increases Efficacy

The XSM Artist Series, incorporating Xicato’s patented Corrected Cold Phosphor Technology™, has expanded to include a new 1000 lumen module. The new addition to Xicato’s popular Artist Series maintains Xicato’s “light quality without compromise” performance, with color quality on par with halogen and color point consistency within 1 x 2 MacAdam ellipses initial, and over time.

The Artist Series is ideal for applications where quality of light is paramount including galleries, museums, retail and residential.  At 1000 lumens, lighting professionals now have a solution for higher ceiling heights or to create stronger accents. Projects worldwide that incorporate Xicato’s Artist include The Victoria and Albert Museum in London, The MoMa in San Francisco, “Aplace” in Stockholm, Harrods in London, the Athenaeum Hotel in London and many private residences.

The XSM Artist 1000 is rated at 22.1W (700mA), yielding an efficacy of 45 lumens/watt.
The XSM95XX-1000-B family of products is available in 2700K, 3000K, and 4000K.

As the series has expanded to 1000 lumens, so have efficacies. Xicato’s Artist Series 700lm module efficacy has increased 45% to 48 lm/w.

Through Xicato’s unique patented “future-proof” design, the new 700 lumen Artist Series module is optically, mechanically and thermally backward compatible with the previous version. This means for end-users if replacements do have to be made e.g. due to a change in desired CCT, a fully compatible, light-technically identical replacement will always be available. No other module technology can make a similar claim.

Typically the CRI is only evaluated for the first 8 pastel colored reference samples of the CRI system. The Artist Series has also been optimized to get excellent results for the more saturated (see R9) and skin color (see R15) samples of the CRI reference set. This performance not only outperforms other LED solutions but also traditional lamp types like compact fluorescent and compact metal halide.
