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.
Light+Building: Sharp to show 100 LED modules
From its Zenigata brand, products stretch up to 50W, 93 CRI and 7,000 lm.
“Depending on brightness, the LED modules are based on a different number of dies,” said Sharp. This enables Sharp to almost seamlessly cover a brightness spectrum of 5 to 7,000 lm, and a spectrum of colour temperatures from 2,700 to 6,500K.”
Particularly for spotlights and down lights, there are Mega Zenigata arrays with luminous flux between 1,150 and 7,000 lm, that are mechanically and optically compatible so they can be mounted with the same reflectors, lenses and housings.
The Mini Zenigata series ranges from 300 to 1,550 lm, and for area lighting “are the LEDs of the SAE and Pico Zenigata series, with their luminous flux ranging from 5 to 75 lm”, said Sharp.
Claimed service life is up to 40,000h at 90°C, and typical CRI across the range is at least 80, with typically 93 from high colour rendering modules within the Mega Zenigata series.
