Xicato introduces 3000lm and 4000lm XLM LED modules and Xicato Light Quality Now Available in 3500K

Xicato extends its range of LE Dmodules by the XLM LED module series with a lumen output that allows replacement of high wattage halogen lamps. In addition Xicato announced the estension of the available CCTs for its modules with a 3500K version for modules with above 1000lm.

Xicato XLM Series:
Recognized by the IESNA’s recent 2011 Progress Report, Xicato’s new 3000lm and 4000lm XLM LED modules provide light levels that replace inefficient high wattage halogen and metal halide lamps which have color stability and controllability issues.

At up to 80 lumens per watt, the XLM family provides a completely controllable source which can easily integrate into daylight harvesting, dimming and demand response building automation schemes. Offered in 3000K, 3500K and 4000K, the Xicato XLM is a high light quality, energy efficient and low maintenance solution for wall washing, high ceiling accents, indirect up lighting and architectural flood lighting. As with all Xicato LED modules, the XLM range has a rugged glass and aluminum architecture, 1x2 SDCM color consistency and industry leading lumen and color maintenance.

Xicato's 3500K Modules:
Xicato introduces a 3500K Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) option to its range of LED modules. 3500K is the predominant color temperature for ambient lighting in North America and is increasingly popular in other markets.

The new color will be offered in all Xicato flux packages starting at 1000 lumens and above and allows lighting designers an option to match 3500K accent and ambient layers. Other accent source options, halogen and metal halide, are not generally available in 3500K and present challenging problems such as short life and poor efficacy (halogen), or color shift and inability to control (metal halide). Now designers have an optimum overall specification of color quality, high efficiency, long life, stable color point and seamless controls integration.

The 1000lm Artist Series Xicato Spot Module is also available in 3500K. For the first time an accent light source with halogen-like color rendering properties (CRI, 95+ with R9, 96 typical) can be used by designers to match fluorescent sources.
