Xicato Introduces XLM 3000lm Artist Module

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 17, 2012) - The XLM 3000 Artist is Xicato's highest flux Artist Series product and is designed for applications that require perfect halogen-level color rendering and smooth, continuous dimming to 0.1% (power). Single-ended T4 and double-ended R7s halogen lamps have been lighting professionals' first choice for applications such as museums, retail, hospitality, houses of worship and historic spaces. Though their light quality was high, these lamps had the drawbacks of short life and poor efficacy. The XLM 3000 Artist combines high flux with high color rendering and is suitable for track, recessed downlight and wall wash luminaires.

As with the rest of the Artist Series range, color rendering is accurate across all 15 CIE standard test colors, both pastel and saturated, including the deep red and skin tone references. Ra = 90+ and 95 typical, outperforming other LED solutions as well as compact fluorescent and compact metal halide sources. The XLM Artist Series is available in the following Correlated Color Temperatures (CCTs): 3000K, 3500K and 4000K.

As with all Xicato's LED modules, the XLM 3000 Artist is color consistent initially (1 x 2 SDCM) and over life and maintains its light level over time (L70/B50/50,000hrs).
