Sharp to launch 93.3lm/W LED in 50W input power class

Tokyo-based Sharp Corp says that it has developed and will introduce the GW5DME30MR5 high-power LED lighting device, which incorporates an LED chip with high emission efficiency combined with a proprietary blend of phosphors.

Luminous efficacy is 93.3lm/W (claimed to be the industry’s highest in the 50W input power class) at the 3000K color temperature commonly used in downlights for retail stores. Sharp says that, in the future, lighting sources for applications such as downlighting and spotlights in retail stores are expected to shift to higher-power LEDs.

As well as the 3000K GW5DME30MR5, the range also includes the 2700K GW5DME27MR5 and the 4000K GW5DME40MR5.

Also, the color rendering index (Ra) of the GW5DME30MR5 is 83. Proprietary package technology provides greater color consistency, contributing to higher quality in the design and development of lighting fixtures, Sharp says.  

In addition, to meet the need for light sources that require higher color rendering properties, the lineup also includes high-performance models (the 2700K GW5DGE27MR5, the 3000K GW5DGE30MR5 and the 4000K GW5DGE40MR5) that feature a color rendering index (Ra) of more than 90.

Sample price for the LEDs is 4000 yen. Volume production is scheduled to start on 1 November. Monthly output should be 50,000 units.
