Soraa boosts LED Lamp efficiency by 40 percent

LED Lamps achieve up to 500 lumen output from 7.5W

Soraa has upgraded the performance of its award winning MR16 GU10 base 120V LED lamp line with the company's third generation GaN on GaN LED. 

"With a 40 percent improvement in efficacy over our previous generation of GU10 LED lamps, these new lamps truly raise the bar on performance," said George Stringer, senior VP of Americas sales and marketing at Soraa. 

"The lamps are not only exceptionally efficient and bright, but they also render the entire visible spectrum, making white fabrics and paper goods pop, plastics and smiles whiter, and colours more natural and beautiful. Plus, they are true retrofit sized-unlike other high output GU10 products on the market today-making them highly compatible with a broad range of enclosed, non-ventilated, indoor and outdoor fixtures," he added.

Soraa's technology enables a 10 degree narrow spot version with a centre beamcandle power (CBCP) of 7,300Cd, not available in halogen or from other LED manufacturers. Soraa also offers a 25 degree narrow flood version that has a CBCP higher than halogen and all other GU10 LED products in the market place today.

The lamps also feature Soraa's Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VP3) LED technology for accurate rendering of colours and whiteness. Soraa's VP3 VIVID COLOR achieves a colour-rendering index (CRI) of 95 and deep red (R9) rendering of 95. Unlike blue-based white LEDs without any violet/ ultra-violet emission, the company's VP3 NATURAL WHITE is achieved by engineering the violet emission to properly excite fluorescing agents including natural objects like human eyes and teeth, as well as manufactured white materials such as clothing, paper and cosmetics.

Soraa's GU10 LED lamps are available in 50W (Soraa 95CRI VIVID 400 lumen) and 65W (Soraa 80CRI BRILLIANT 500 lumen) halogen equivalent light output; 10 degree, 25 degree, 36 degree, and 60 degree beam angles; 2700K, 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K colour temperatures. Additionally, Soraa's 10 degree lamps work with its magnetic accessory SNAP System, which allows beam shapes and colour temperature to be modified.
