CAST Impressionist® Series Directional Light

CID140 (LED Chip 2018)


20 light levels, Quick change Optics - 5 beam spreads, plus 2 color temperatures mean 200 combinations in 1 fixture! That's right, one Impressionist directional light replaces dozens of retrofit lamps or integrated fixtures from other manufacturers. Less time planning, purchasing, and making adjustments in the field - all significant savings in time and labor.

The durable and advanced CAST LED Directional Light (CID140) is a compact powerhouse that delivers illumination of exceptional quality. Designed for the landscape lighting professional, light level control at the fixture and quick-change optics enables the lighting designer to fine-tune illumination in the field.


Suitable for uplighting trees, plant material, structures and design features. Especially useful for maturing landscapes with easy light level control and changeable optics. For use as uplighting only, for downlighting use CIT164. 


Light Level Control

Light level is controlled by a dimming circuit built into the fixture. The circuit is accessed through a plug at the base of the light. By using the Dimming Control Module (CDIMMER) or the Manual Dimming Control Jumper Cable (CIJ - provided with fixture), the user plugs the control device into the control plug. The control device changes light level up or down in 5% increments. When the control device is removed, the light level remains fixed - even when power is off. You can also dim groups of Impressionist fixtures all at once, by gang dimming together. (Using optional CIGDS and CLW184250)

Beam Angle Control

To change beam angle, the designer loosens the thumb screw at the base of the shroud, and slides the shroud off the internal module. Once removed, the optical element is exposed and is simply lifted off its support pins. The new module is inserted in its place

Glare Control

Included Adjustable Glare Shield - to control light source glare in any direction
