Sharp announces outdoor solar-powered LED lights with 30% higher luminous efficiency
Sharp has developed a new line-up of ten LED-based outdoor lighting products and will introduce them in succession into the Japanese market over the coming months. In addition to four solar-powered LED lights that combine solar panels with newly developed high-intensity, long-life LEDs to achieve industry-leading brightness, there are two models of LED security (crime deterrence) lights and four LED lighting fixtures. The four Sharp solar-powered LED lights feature newly developed LEDs with 30% higher luminous efficiency and a newly developed LED lens designed to spread this light over a broad area. As a result, they achieve brightness at one of the industry’s highest levels and can flood a wide space with light.
In addition to the four solar-powered models, the new line-up features two LED security lights that come without poles and four LED lighting fixtures capable of illuminating a wide area from a pole height of 4.5 m. Sharp Solar-powered LED lights provide exterior illumination while emitting no CO2 whatsoever. They work by storing electricity generated from sunlight during the day in storage batteries to provide LED light at night.
