Soraa completes its line of PAR30 and AR111 LED lamps with 12.5W range

Soraa Inc of Fremont, CA, USA, which develops solid-state lighting technology built on ‘GaN on GaN’ (gallium nitride on gallium nitride) substrates, has extended its line of PAR and AR111 lamps to offer a full range of halogen replacement lamps from 50W to 120W halogen equivalent.

The new 12.5W line features a lower-wattage addition to its full-visible-spectrum PAR30 and AR111 LED lamps, while maintaining the high-peak-intensity characteristic of Soraa’s lamps. Featuring Soraa’s third-generation GaN-on-GaN LED, the firm’s new 12.5W PAR30 lamps provide a suitable lighting solution for 75-120W-equivalent applications in retail, hospitality and museum environments, while the 12.5W AR111 lamps offer an efficient choice for retail applications.

“The market is awash in low-performance, poor-light-quality PAR30 and AR111 LED lamps, so when we introduced our full-visible-spectrum large LED lamp portfolio earlier this year, the reception was outstanding,” claims Nick Farraway, senior VP international sales & marketing, who adds that the lamps have low power consumption, a unique 8° beam enabled by the firm’s Point Source Optics, and VPs Vivid Color and VPs Natural White technologies.

Soraa says that its Point Source Optics technology produces high-intensity and uniform beams, enabling it to offer an 8° narrow spot version with a peak intensity of 20,000Cd — twice the peak intensity of other LED maker, it is claimed.

Soraa’s Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VPs) LED technology allows the rendering of colors and whiteness. Utilizing every color, especially deep red emission, VPs Vivid Color renders warm tones accurately, and achieves a color-rendering index (CRI) of 95 and deep red (R9) rendering of 95. Also, unlike blue-based white LEDs without any violet/ultraviolet emission, the VPs Natural White is achieved by engineering the violet emission to properly excite fluorescing brightening agents including natural objects like human eyes and teeth, as well as manufactured white materials such as clothing, paper and cosmetics.

Soraa’s PAR30 and AR111 lamps are available in 50-100W (Soraa 95CRI VIVID) and 60-120W (Soraa 80CRI BRILLIANT) halogen-equivalent light output; 8°, 9°, 25°, 36°, 50° and 60° beam angles; and 2700K, 3000K, 4000K and 5000K color temperatures. Both lamps are compatible with a broad range of enclosed, non-ventilated, indoor and outdoor fixtures. Additionally, Soraa’s 8° lamps work with its magnetic accessory SNAP system. With a simple magnetic accessory attachment, beam shapes can be altered and color temperature can be modified, allowing flexibility in design and display.
