Soraa boosts full-visible-spectrum GU10 LED lamps to 500 lumens

Soraa Inc of Fremont, CA, USA, which develops solid-state lighting technology built on ‘GaN on GaN’ (gallium nitride on gallium nitride) substrates, has upgraded the performance of its MR16 GU10 base 120V LED lamp line with the company’s third-generation GaN-on-GaN LED. Featuring full-visible-spectrum light, the new GU10 LED lamps are suitable as lighting for restaurants, retail, high-end residential and office environments where superior light quality and smooth dimming are essential, says the firm.

The new lamps boost efficacy by 40% over the firm’s previous generation of GU10 LED lamps. “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,” claims George Stringer, senior VP of Americas sales & marketing.

Soraa says that its Point Source Optics technology produces high-intensity, uniform beams, and enables a 10° narrow spot version with a center-beam candle power (CBCP) of 7300Cd (not available in halogen or from other LED makers, the firm claims). Soraa also offers a 25° narrow flood version that has a CBCP higher than halogen and all other GU10 LED products on the market, the firm adds.

The lamps also feature Soraa’s unique Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VP3) LED technology for rendering of colors and whiteness. Utilizing every color, especially deep red emission, VP3 Vivid Color renders warm tones accurately, and achieves a color-rendering index (CRI) of 95 as well as deep red (R9) rendering of 95. Also, unlike blue-based white LEDs without any violet/ ultraviolet emission, the 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.

The GU10 LED lamps are available in 50W (Soraa 95CRI VIVID 400 lumen) and 65W (Soraa 80CRI BRILLIANT 500 lumen) halogen-equivalent light output; 10°, 25°, 36° and 60° beam angles; and 2700K, 3000K, 4000K and 5000K color temperatures.

Additionally, Soraa's 10° 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.
