ENGINE: Xicato Artist RATED OUTPUT: 400 lumens COLOUR TEMPERATURE: 3000K COLOUR RENDERING: Ra98 BEAM ANGLE: 70 degrees PRICE: Around £75 LUX VERDICT: ★★★★
This downlight is all about the colour rendering. The highly impressive Xicato Artist module delivers an awesome Ra98 – confirmed in tests by our colleagues at the UCL labs. This makes the AlphaLED Artist more than a match for halogen – and perfect for demanding retail apps.
WHAT SPECIFIERS SAY:
I like this product range and its affordability. It’s been the product that has brought LED lighting within a reasonable budget for general lighting. I’m currently using it in a hospital project where we would have used low voltage halogen before. Kevan Shaw Design Director KSLD Edinburgh
