Xicato’s XTM 9 mm LES Makes Narrow Beams and High Center Beam Intensities a Reality

Xicato, a leading manufacturer of intelligent light sources, announced today that it has expanded its XTM product portfolio. The new module features a 9 mm light-emitting surface (LES) that enables the narrow beam angles and high center beam intensities that lighting designers require, especially for retail, hospitality, and museum applications.

“Our 9 mm XTM module produces the lit effect designers have requested and the color quality, consistency and longevity that is expected of Xicato products,” said John Yriberri, Vice President of Business Development. “We have been asked by lighting designers to enable tight beams with a high center beam punch. With the XTM 9mm we can achieve 15,000 candela from a 50 mm diameter optic and over 70,000 candela from a 111 mm diameter optic. This is industry leading performance that allows specifiers to address many more applications.”

Xicato will offer a full range of 9 mm XTM options for light, correlated color temperature and luminous flux. Efficiencies will be as high as 90 lumens per watt and CRIs up to Ra 98 for the Artist Series.

Xicato’s Zhaga-compatible XTM is available for shipment now in 19 mm and 9 mm LES options for creative layering of light. For further information visit www.xicato.com.
