Soraa To Showcase New GaN-on-GaN Lamps
The company will display its Simply Perfect PAR and AR111 lamps next week at Light + Building
Soraa has announced a full range of LED AR111, PAR30, and PAR38 lamps that will be available to ship in late Q2 2014.
All Soraa lamps feature 3-phosphor GaN-on-GaN LEDs with violet pump that enable benefits such as Point Source Optics for uniform beams of high intensity, Violet 3-Phosphor (VP) Natural White and VP Full-spectrum Vivid Colour, which reveal the magic of whiteness and colours in every environment.
Now, Soraa’s Simply Perfect Light is available in a portfolio of larger form factors essential for retail, hospitality and residential applications.
Since its 2012 launch, the Soraa says its LED MR16 lamp has become synonymous with exceptional light quality and innovative design, which is continued in this portfolio expansion.
Soraa’s signature elements of Simply Perfect Light, powered by its GaN on GaN LED technology, shift the landscape completely.
In addition, Soraa’s SNAP System provides a lamp-accessory solution that delivers endless design and display possibilities and ANSI/IEC conforming form factors for worry-free fit and reliable operation in both enclosed and open fixtures.
“We eagerly anticipated Soraa’s MR16 product becoming available on the market, and it met all our expectations. Its narrow, tight, and very bright beam projects an even field of natural light thanks to its full-spectrum colour rendering, and its clean single shadow," says Johan Sustrac, CEO of the prominent Paris-based lighting design firm Distylight.
The Distylight projects include Club Med Bahamas, the Kuznetsky Hotel in Moscow, the Pathé Gaumont cinemas in France and numerous hotels in Paris like Hotel Codet or Hotel Rebuplique.
“We love the smart SNAP System that provides us lighting designers with endless possibilities and huge flexibility to change the spread and colour temperature of our LED, without having to change our source. We are also looking forward to having Soraa’s AR111 on the EU market, especially for its high power performance, its dimmable aspect and of course the great flexibility of the SNAP System," continues Sustrac.
Soraa’s large lamp portfolio of AR111, PAR30 Long Neck (LN), PAR30 Short Neck (SN) and PAR38 lamps achieve 1000 lumen output with VP Natural White and VP Vivid Colour technology, defined by full-visible-spectrum, high whiteness rendering, 95-CRI, and 95-R9. The family of large lamps will be available in 25°, 36°, and 60° beam angles, and in a wide range of colour temperatures.
The AR111 is an important lamp for object lighting, requiring narrow spots, crisp beam edges, and no glare. With a peak intensity of 27,500Cd, Soraa’s 8° 95-CRI/95-R9 AR111 is the only LED product that matches halogen levels, 50 percent higher than the nearest 80-CRI competitor.
The PAR30LN and PAR30SN lamps offer a 8° narrow spot option on the market without active cooling, achieving a centre beam intensity of 28,250Cd, more than twice the level of the nearest 80-CRI competitor.
Soraa will be at Light + Building in Frankfurt, Germany at booth Hall 4.1, Stand B55, taking place from March 30th to April 4th, 2014.
