Cata by Artemide Architectural
Carlotta de Bevilacqua
Cata is a LED projector originating thorough research on accent lighting. Especially designed for museums, but also suited for retail and hospitality environments, it is characterized by high energy efficiency, high axial luminous intensities, closely focused and defined light beams, and medium scattered beams. The appliance uses an innovative beam collimation system, and includes three elements:
- clear PMMA feeder unit with ultra-flat proprietary feeder
- die-cast aluminium dissipation body
- interchangeable optical unit with “twist&lock” mechanism.
The use of clear materials combined with reflecting surfaces conveys an immaterial feel of the appliance in space. Cata comes in a high colour rendering 25W version and a tunable white version, with colour temperature ranging from 2700 to 5700K, and can thus reproduce the luminous performance of the best professional halogen sources, both in terms of quality of the generated luminous spectrum (due to the use of high colour rendering LED arrays, with CRI of 90 or higher) and in terms of absence of emissions in the ultraviolet and infrared range. The product range also includes a number of accessories, such as a profile spot generating beams with opening angles from 2 x 10° to 2 x 22.5° through appropriate focusing, and designed to fit a diaphragm for the projection of profiles of different geometries, as well as to fit any colour filters for the management of on-demand profiles by means of a blade diaphragm. All this is controlled with an innovative cartridge system, which allows to implement these variations of the base product as accessories.
Available with 2 mounting options: with track adapter and ceiling mounting. Integrated Dali dimmerable electronic feeder offered as a standard feature, fitted with a Dali 8 interface joint for the Tunable White versions.
