Xicato XSM 3000 LED Module is Brighter and More Efficient

Xicato, a leading developer of LED modules for retail, hospitality and architectural environments, today announced the latest addition to its XSM family of products, a 3000 lumen module that is easily implemented into new or existing spot and general illumination applications. In addition to retaining Xicato’s quality of light characteristics, all XSM products share a common footprint, mechanical connections and optical aperture, so it’s easy for lighting manufacturers to offer a portfolio of solutions by simply changing modules. There’s no need to re-engineer reflectors or fit to expand a range of luminaires. The new XSM module is designed to replace a 35W ceramic metal halide lamp and deliver superior color consistency initially and over time.

“The new XSM module uses our phosphor and packaging innovations to achieve great efficiency that supports energy and cost reductions while retaining ease-of-use for our OEMs,” said Thor Scordelis, manager of global product marketing at Xicato. “XSM 3000 does this without sacrificing quality of light or the ‘future-proof’ approach of our product family.” Full specifications are available online at

Xicato believes the true value of LED modules lies in the quality of light they deliver from an aesthetic and economic perspective. Its solutions are engineered to meet the highest standards of light quality, which allows end users to experience true, consistent color, both initially and over time. The small form factor of the modules and complement of reflectors, heat-sinks, and drivers make Xicato’s modules the perfect choice for lighting retail, hospitality and gallery environments around the globe.
