LED news and insight from our technology editor Steve Bush, who has been messing with LED lighting for more years than he would care to remember.
Sharp luminaires exceed 100 lm/W
Sharp has added to luminaires in its Kato product family – Kato L (high bay 104 lm/W ~20,000 lm) and Kato S (low bay 110 lm/W ~10,000 lm).
“We have improved the efficiency of the low bay luminaire with this second generation product”, said Jennifer Campbell, general manager, Sharp LED Lighting Europe. “The high bay also extends our product portfolio to fulfill all possible requests for different mounting heights and beam angles for industrial applications.”
The luminaires are designed for use in damp indoor and outdoor environments, and are IP66-rated with a die-cast aluminium body protecting from foreign objects, water and impact (IK08 for Kato L and IK07 for Kato S) – suiting them to industrial buildings, public transport facilities, storage and exhibition spaces and sports halls.
CRI is over 80 over the complete service life for both.
Installation ises a mounting plate for ceiling mounting or 2-point chain suspension in Y-form for suspended mounting – chains allow use in canopied outdoor areas.
Kato L allows for mounting heights of up to 15m and provides three different beam angles.
Power is 240V with DALI dimming.Tags: Jennifer Campbell, KATO, led lighting, Sharp LED Lighting Europe
