Hamburg – The new product generation is based on the technical advances made in LED production, improving the efficiency by up to 47%. The 2nd generation of the 10W arrays has four distinguishing features in this regard: they are compact, lightweight, economical and significantly brighter than before.

Sharp has retained the dimensions of 15 x 12 x 1.6 millimetres unchanged, along with an aluminium ceramic plate as carrier material.

The flat surface of the ceramic plate and the soldering points already in place make it possible to attach the modules to a suitable heat sink, without too much effort or additional connecting material, thereby achieving efficient heat dissipation.

Depending on the module, the new types offer a light output of up to 900 lumens, a luminous efficacy of up to 106 lm/W in standard operation, high CRI values of 82 and a long service life of 40,000 operating hours at an operating temperature of up to 90°C. The new generation is specified for use with a forward voltage of 17.7 V and a forward current of 480 mA. But the arrays can also be operated using a current of up to 800 mA, whereby values of up to 1300 lm can be reached. With the shades "Natural White", "Warm White", and "Pure White", the colour temperatures of the new white light LED arrays are in the range of 3,000 to 5,000 Kelvin.

The extensive range of LED lighting arrays allows Sharp to provide numerous marketable solutions for the use of LEDs as light sources for lamps and lighting fixtures. The luminous Mini Zeni LED modules from Sharp are suitable for numerous applications, e.g. spot lighting and for use in LED retrofit lamps, etc.

Initial samples are available in the colour temperatures of 3000 and 4000K. These can now be ordered from Sharp sales offices and distribution partners across Europe.
