Sharp LED Ceiling Light Is The World’s Most Efficient

Sharp LED Ceiling Light Is The World's Most Efficient

Sharp announced the latest in their series of energy efficient LED lights, a square ceiling light. Available in three models for small, medium, and large sized rooms, the light is 1.6 times more energy efficient than previous LED ceiling lights, making it the most efficient in the industry. Sharp has achieved this by combining direct illumination with the kind of 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 features an insect repellant structure, which makes it hard for bugs and dust to get inside. There is also a Favorite Setting button on the remote control, which remembers the preferred brightness and color tone. As an environmentally friendly feature, the light also has a Sleep Button, 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.”

    very expensive – about $AU550 for a ceiling light.

    If the life product comes to 10 years with out change, then this is a bargain 70 Dlls per year, i usually change 2 bulbs per year, but if they come with more lumen and less watts, it would be a great deal. Beside, it comes programmable dim light meaning, all incandescent bulbs can not do dimming

    Part of the price is because of the hardware to control the light, i think they should make a basic model just on/off LED light that would be cheaper.

    Massive light for a television.
