Soraa launching full-visible-spectrum large LED lamp portfolio at LightFair

In booth #7718 at the LightFair International 2014 event in Las Vegas (3-5 June), Soraa Inc of Fremont, CA, USA, which develops solid-state lighting technology built on ‘GaN on GaN’ (gallium nitride on gallium nitride) substrates, is launching and displaying a series of new full-visible-spectrum large LED lamps. The new line of AR111, PAR30L (Long Neck), PAR30S (Short Neck), and PAR38 lamps complements the firm’s MR16 lamp, creating a full line of products to light restaurant, retail, hospitality, and residential applications.

All of Soraa’s lamps feature the firm’s unique full-visible-spectrum Violet-emission 3-Phosphor (VP3) LED technology powered by GaN-on-GaN, enhancing rendering of colors and whiteness. VP3 Vivid Color utilizes every color in the rainbow, especially deep red emission, to render warm tones, and achieves a color rendering index (CRI) of 95 and deep red (R9) rendering of 95 at correlated color temperatures (CCTs) from 2700K to 5000K. VP3 Natural White is achieved by engineering the violet emission to properly excite fluorescing agents in natural objects such as human eyes and teeth as well as manufactured white materials such as clothing, paper and cosmetics; resulting in whiteness rendering the same as observed under daylight or incandescent illumination, but without using ultra-violet light.

“No other LED technology is able to efficiently combine all aspects of the full-visible-spectrum to provide a full-color, natural lighting experience without an elaborate lamp design,” claims chief technology officer Mike Krames. “Gone are the days when energy efficiency meant inferior light quality, as instigated by fluorescent lighting and perpetuated by standard blue-based white LEDs.”

Soraa’s 8° AR111 is claimed to be the only LED product that matches halogen levels, with a CBCP (center-beam candle power) that is 50% higher than the nearest 80-CRI competitor. The PAR30L and PAR30S lamps offer the only 8° narrow spot option on the market without active cooling, achieving a CBCP more than twice that of the nearest 80-CRI competitor, it is claimed. All of Soraa’s full-visible-spectrum lamps are available in 25°, 36° and 60° beam angles and come in a wide range of color temperatures.
