OSAKA, Japan - Sharp Corporation will introduce into the Japanese market six new LED Downlight Lightings, including three that deliver a light intensity equivalent to a 150-watt incandescent lamp, an industry first for downlight models.

The model DL-D007N Transparent Panel, Neutral White Downlight Lighting delivers a brightness of 1,400 lumens, the highest in the industry[1] and equivalent in intensity to a 150-watt incandescent lamp. This unit can be used as main lights even in commercial facilities with high ceilings. The complete line-up combines two types of LED with different emission color temperatures (neutral white and warm white) and two types of cover panels (transparent and translucent white) in lightings having equivalent light intensities of either 150 or 100 watts. Neutral white LEDs can generate bright lighting for factory or office entrances, warm white LEDs can provide relaxed lighting for hotel lobbies and such, and translucent white cover panels are ideal for use in hospitals and other venues where overly bright lighting must be avoided. Users can select from a total of six models according to application and installation location.

In the future, Sharp will be working to expand its LED lighting business to spark a "lighting revolution in the factory, at the office, and in commercial facilities" based on high environmental performance and reliability.

Major Features

1. The industry's highest* brightness of 1,400 lumens for an LED Downlight Lighting (DL-D007N).
2. Outstanding energy efficiency with power consumption about one-fifth that of incandescent lamps of equivalent brightness (DL-D007N/DL-D001N).
3. Long product life (40,000 hours), ideal for installation in locations where lamp replacement is difficult.
