Delta Electronics has announced it has developed an advanced, energy-saving High Brightness 5W/9W/12W LED Lamp, and will demonstrate the new lamp at the Light+Building 2008 exhibition in Frankfurt. The LED lamp is 100% compatible with current sockets (E27) and is similar in appearance to compact fluorescent lamps (CFL) of the same wattage. The lamp is easily installed and readily replaces CFL and incandescent lamps. Advantages of the Delta High Brightness LED Lamp include: power-saving, excellent thermal dissipation & color rendering index (CRI), high efficiency, and long life. Of special note is the lamp's outstanding energy-efficiency, especially at lower environment temperatures.In addition to the 5W/9W/12W LED Lamp, Delta is demonstrating LED lighting for outdoor use such as street lamps and floodlights that is based on the same technology. The show signals Delta's entry into the general LED lighting market.
"In the spirit of Delta's commitment to energy-efficiency, we use superior technology in optical design, thermal modules, key components, and lighting techniques to successfully develop a high brightness LED lamp that has power-saving, excellent thermal dissipation & CRI, high efficiency, and long life. Its performance is much better than traditional lamps and CFLs," said Mr. Sean Chang, director of the CPBG Optical Component Business Unit at Delta. To bring about a better living environment, Delta continues to create exceptional LED products for solid-state lighting solutions.
Delta's LED Lamp offers excellent light efficiency, superior to CFLs and 5 times higher than incandescent lamps. The 5W LED lamp, for example, provides light efficiency equal to a 25W incandescent lamp, achieving a substantial reduction in power consumption by up to 80%. Delta's novel heat sink design also delivers 25% higher thermal dissipation than other LED lamps on the market. The lamp offers a CRI of up to 80% (sunlight is 100%)—much better than CFLs. Delta's LED lamp is particularly well-suited for low temperature environments. At 0°C, the efficiency of the LED lamp is six times higher than a CFL of the same wattage. Lamp life is greater than 35000hrs, which is six times longer than CFLs and 20 times longer than incandescent lamps. Produced under lead-free conditions, the LED Lamp is mercury-free, 100% RoHS compliant, and Delta predicts the luminous efficacy of the lamp will reach 70 lm/W by July 2008. Delta LED Lamps are ready to take the place of CFLs.
The Light+Building 2008 exhibition in Frankfurt is the world's largest lighting and building display exhibition. More than 2,100 leading global companies and 135,000 buyers will participate in this exhibition.”
