The award winning Concord Beacon range is continuously evolving to provide a suite of cutting edge lighting design tools. Last year, Concord upgraded the Beacon Muse adjustable spotlight by incorporating new LED chips within the luminaires to dramatically increase the light output and improve the Colour Rendering Index up to typical 97. It also launched the impressive Beacon XL, which has the power to provide up to 3000 fixture lumens from only 42W.
The Beacon Muse LED uses cutting-edge technology and ancient lens principles to create a fully adjustable spotlight. The contemporary all die-cast aluminium design is supplied with a turned single piece aluminium front helix with engraved beam angles for simple and easy adjustment.
The Muse's adjustable optic system provides a wide flood 65˚ beam angle which can be adjusted to a 10˚ spot without the need for additional lenses or reflectors. The 10° tight spot is ideal for accent lighting for accentuating the texture, colour and shape of exhibits. Its 65° wide flood distribution can be optimised for uniform vertical and horizontal illuminance and wall washing effects. Also, when used with an elongation lens accessory it can create narrow beam angles for highlighting sculptures, mannequins, logos and shelving.
This fully adjustable spotlight provides all the benefits of LED technology, no UV/IR radiation, 50,000 hours life at 70% luminous flux, maintenance free applications and a considerable reduction in energy consumption over traditional light sources.
Muse is available in 3000K & 4000K CCT with a high colour rendering index, typical Ra97 incorporating a discrete on board dimmer and also collective track dimming options, essential requirements for museums, galleries and high-end retail applications.
The versatility of Muse means that the designer has a completely flexible lighting tool, so for exhibitions and shop lighting applications there is no need to change spotlights, reflectors or lenses a simple adjustment to the luminaire will transform the lit space saving considerable time and money.
The Beacon XL is available in black and white versions to complement the rest of the Beacon range and can replace existing 35W CMI-T (HID) luminaires to provide significant energy savings. With a CRI figure of 85, (97 available on request) the Beacon XL offers retail and display environments a high powered LED luminaire with great colour rendering.
The 42W luminaire has three different beam angles - a narrow beam of 12˚, a medium beam of 24˚and a wide beam of 50˚ - to provide end-users with the right lit effect for individual environments. With additional accessories in the form of elongation lens, snoot and barn doors, the luminaire can be tailored to suit all requirements.
The luminaire can be surface mounted or work in unison on a L1 or L3 track with other models in the Beacon family. The Beacon XL is also available in non-dimmable, on-board dimming and DALI dimming models.
