Press release date: May 12, 2010
Sharp's LED PAR38 and PAR30 lamps provide high brightness, excellent color rendering and well-designed beam control. The PAR38 lamps are available in some of the highest lumen levels in the industry at 900 lumens, comparable to a traditional 90-watt halogen lamp, and 720 lumens, replacing a 75-watt halogen bulb. The actual wattages are 20- and 16-watts, which result in an efficacy of 45 lumens per watt. The smaller PAR30 lamps offer 600 lumens, comparable to a traditional 50-watt halogen lamp, with 12-watts for an efficacy of 50 lumens per watt. Sharp's LED PAR38 lamp has an excellent color rendering index of 85, ensuring colors remain true to life under the spotlight. A controlled 25-degree beam angle ensures maximum, directional illumination. The PAR38 and PAR30 lamps are available in both cool white at 4000K and warm white at 3000K. Additionally, customers can be assured that objects being illuminated are safe from ultraviolet and infrared rays, and they generate very low heat levels. Eco-Friendly
LED lamps provide one of the most energy-efficient and eco-friendly forms of lighting in the industry. Sharp's LED lamps are among the leaders with energy savings of up to approximately 80 percent as compared to standard halogen lamps. Each lamp is designed to last up to 40 times longer than incandescent bulbs for a total 40,000 hours. This long lifetime helps reduce lamp replacement, ultimately reducing maintenance costs and waste. All Sharp lamps are RoHS compliant and are free of toxic heavy metals such as mercury and lead. Ease-of-Use
To make the switch to LED lighting seamless, all Sharp lamps are designed to fit into standard indoor fixtures. They provide greater convenience with instant high brightness levels at the flip of a switch, as well as dimming options on select dimmers.
