Soraa SNAP simplifies LED lamp accessorizing
By Anthony Capkun
April 18, 2013 – Soraa says its SNAP System is the industry’s first magnetic-attach LED lamp and accessory system for lighting, allowing users to customize the light directly on lamps, rather than on fixtures. The Soraa LED MR16 10º lamp can accept a magnet in the centre of the lens without any major effect on light output, says the company, which enables a simple attachment mechanism that can accept all kinds of accessories. Also, the relatively low operating temperature of the Soraa lamp allows the use of new accessory materials, such as advanced polymer films. Examples of typical accessories include: beam spreads of 25º, 36º, 60º; hex-louvers and snoots to reduce glare; grates to create linear light patterns; and filters for colour temperature shifting and tint effects.
