Sharp enters lighting market with LED lamps – 2010

August 22, 2010 | By Anthony Capkun

Sharp has entered the North American lighting market with LED PAR38 and PAR30 lamps for commercial and industrial applications. The four PAR38 LED lamps (DL-L20P3830A and DL-L16P3830A in Warm White, and DL-L20P3840A and DL-L16P3840A in Cool White) and three PAR30 LED lamps (models DL-L12P3030A and DL-L12P3L30A in Warm White, and DL-L12P3040A in Cool White) promise long-lasting durability for traditional downlight applications. The LED PAR38 and PAR30 lamps promise high brightness, good colour rendering and “well-designed beam control”. The PAR38s are available in some of the highest lumen levels in the industry, says Sharp, at 900, replacing a 75W halogen bulb (the actual wattages are 20W and 16W). The smaller PAR30 lamps offer 600 lumens, comparable to a 50W halogen, says the company. (Note: we are uncertain of availability in Canada.)
