Brightest LED by Sharp

Starting Mar. 5, 2013, Sharp Corp. will start shipping samples of what the company claims to be the industry's brightest LED device.

Sharp said that its product, called GW7GAL50SGC, is the single LED device that has a luminous flux of 14,000lm. The device is suited for use in street lamps and lighting apparatuses installed on high ceilings with wattage of about 100W.

Heat radiation performance was improved by using a high heat conductivity material for the LED substrate. Increasing the luminous efficiency to 143lm/W improved its power-saving capability. In comparison, Sharp's other LED products have wattage of about 50W and a luminous efficiency of 110lm/W.

The GW7GAL50SGC lasts for as long as 40,000 hours, reducing the need for maintenance. Soldering is unnecessary with this device, because it comes with a connector for electric wiring.

The new LED device measures 86.6 (W) x 75.0 (D) x 3.9mm (H) (excluding the connector). It has a colour rendering index of 70 or higher and a colour temperature of 7,000K. Sample price is around $97.3 and volume production will begin on May 27, 2013.
