Soraa expands LED lighting compatibility program

Following the launch of the Works with Soraa program (a lamp and fixture validation program) in December 2012, Soraa Inc of Fremont, CA, USA, which develops solid-state lighting technology built on ‘GaN on GaN’ (gallium nitride on gallium nitride) substrates, has announced the addition of nine new fixture manufacturers: Excelsior Lighting, HK Lighting Group, Light Raze, Tegan Lighting, Intense Lighting, Lucifer Lighting, Nora Lighting, Liton Lighting, and Pure Edge Lighting join the four original partners—Tech Lighting, Focal Point, Hevi Lite, and Dreamscape Lighting—to form the largest coalition building validated LED lamp and fixture solutions for the lighting market. Soraa has also announced the expansion of the program to dimmer and transformer manufacturers, with launch partners Crestron and Q-Tran.

“LED lighting interoperability is a vexing problem that the entire industry faces,” says Soraa’s CEO Eric Kim. “The Works with Soraa program has been a great initial success and we are pleased to see new manufacturers joining the program to eliminate this problem and create validated solutions for the market. The program will benefit all stakeholders in the lighting industry—lighting designers, architects, contractors, installers, and end users—by providing certainty about LED lamp, fixture and lighting infrastructure compatibility.”

The Works with Soraa program is designed to foster strong collaboration between Soraa and fixture, dimmer and transformer manufacturers, so combinations of products can be rapidly validated for mechanical, thermal and electrical compatibility to create market-ready solutions. Validated product combinations are listed on Soraa’s and the partner’s websites and in catalogs, so specifiers can then specify, and customers can purchase and install, these solutions with confidence.
