Sharp Presents World's Most Efficient LED Ceiling Light

Aug 11, 2011 Sharp presented their most recent and advanced model of energy efficient LED lights, a square ceiling light. It is available in three models for small, medium, and large sized rooms. The new light is 1.6 times more energy efficient than previous LED ceiling lights, making it the most efficient in the industry. Sharp was able to obtain the superior results by combining direct illumination with the highly efficient LEDs used in LCD televisions.

“The main feature of this LED ceiling light is that it’s the top performer in terms of energy efficiency. In particular, the model for small-sized rooms has a luminous efficiency of 81.3 lumens per watt, which is an industry-leading performance. Another feature of this light is that it utilizes the characteristics of LEDs to enable its brightness and color tone to be adjusted. So you can vary the brightness and the color tone in 10 steps. Even when it’s used as a night light, this light can be adjusted in three steps. So it offers 103 variations in brightness and color tone.”

The light also contains an insect repellant structure, which makes it hard for bugs and dust to get inside. The light can be adjusted by a remote control that has several notable fetters, such as "Favorite Setting" button , which remembers the preferred brightness and color tone. As an environmentally friendly feature, the light also has a "Sleep" mode, which can gradually fade the light to a low output night-light level or switch off completely.

“We plan to release this ceiling light on August 27. We expect it will retail at around 55,000 yen for the large room model, 45,000 yen for the medium room model, and 35,000 yen for the small room model. Lots of current lighting hasn’t yet been switched to LEDs or efficient light-bulbs, so we’d like to work on achieving a quick changeover to high energy efficiency.”
