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.)
