  • Color rendering options from >80 to >95
  • Vibrancy color saturating HiDef lighting color points
  • CT options from 2700K to 4000K
  • Multiple lumen packages from 400 to 4000 lumens
  • Industry’s first 5 Year NO COLOR SHIFT Warranty

While industry standard LED binning structure provides for a 7 step MacAdam Ellipse, Chroma fixtures using a cold remote phosphor by XICATO® is produced within 2 MacAdam Ellipse which is centered on the Black Body Locus of the CIE 1931 Chart.

XTM Chart
ALPHABET lands on the curve where perfect color is found. Others stray, not taking the Y axis into account. This allows for green and pinks.

NEXT GENERATION CORRECTED COLOR PHOSPHOR®

One of the most efficient LEDs on the market today, XICATO® uses remote phosphor to answer the color consistency and color over time problems that specifiers have faced. Hot phosphor COB designs have made strides but still struggle to compare and eliminate color shifts over time.

When color, reliability and efficiency are paramount, you must look for ALPHABET Chroma products.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT LIGHT FOR THE JOB

ALPHABET chooses LED manufactures and brands based on strict criteria of quality, efficiency, variety of features for our designer’s selection based on application. In addition to the standard CIE Ra pastels R1-R8, our Xicato based products target the important supplementary reference colors R9-R15, which include chlorophyll, skin tones and, critically, the deep red (R9) that affects the appearance of wood, brick and other materials.

In 2015, LEDRAbrands and Xicato became the first companies to publicly embrace the new IES TM-30-15 standard, which is based on the latest science for calculating color fidelity and gamut. Now, both XICATO and ALPHABET provide TM-30 data on all its products. See TM-30 section of this catalog to learn more on how to read TM-30 and what it means to you.

  • Superior Color Consistency

ARTIST SERIES

Artist Series has typical CRI of Ra 98. It has been optimized to get excellent results for the more saturated and skin color samples of the CRI reference set. The Artist Series outperforms most other LED solutions.

  • Natural Color
  • Very High Color Rendering
  • CRI > 95. R9 > 90
  • Rf 96 Rg 103

VIBRANT SERIES

By increasing the gamut area of the Vibrant Series, objects appear richer and with more texture and depth. This enables us to see colors, hues and tones, particularly for whites, purples, pinks and blues, that are real, but simply aren’t visible under standard LED that are ON the black body curve and halogen light. Vibrant is available in both high CRI (V95) and high efficacy (V80). The High CRI V95 is the ultimate light source enrichening reds, oranges and along with the colors mentioned above. Think “High Definition” Lighting.
