KYOCERA Develops Compact LEDs with Excellent Rendering of the Daylight Spectrum

New LEDs produce spectrum close to sunlight; ceramic technologies deliver low power consumption and extremely long life.

Kyoto/Neuss – Kyocera Corporation (NYSE:KYO)(TOKYO:6971) today announced that it has developed a new type of light-emitting diode (LED) that produces a color spectrum very close to natural sunlight — making it ideal for color-inspection applications. The new products offer low power consumption and extremely long life in an array of lighting options, including fluorescent tubes, standing lights and compact handheld lamps — making them a perfect alternative to large, heat-producing xenon lamps in areas such as automotive paint inspection.

Kyocera’s LEDs render a wider and more evenly distributed spectrum of light than conventional LEDs or fluorescent lighting. In this way, they make a color rendering possible that approximating natural sunlight. These characteristics are highly desirable in any environment — and essential in applications requiring accurate color reproduction, such as paint manufacturing, commercial printing and automotive color inspection.

Kyocera’s unique material technologies are applied throughout the new LED modules to facilitate outstanding performance. The new LEDs are rated for 100,000 hours of service, equal to more than 11 years of continuous operation, with extremely low power consumption. Additionally, Kyocera’s proprietary material technology has yielded a ceramic package with higher reflectivity than conventional materials, resulting in brighter light output.

Kyocera is marketing the new LED products in multiple lighting options for diverse applications, including a handheld portable device for inspecting large objects, like automobiles; standing lights for inspection workstations; and fluorescent tubes for illuminating entire rooms or enclosed areas. Kyocera can supply LED modules individually or in finished products of the aforementioned configurations. The LEDs can also be supplied in battery-powered versions for enhanced portability.

The new products expand Kyocera’s line of high-quality, long-life and environment-friendly LED lighting solutions. Kyocera’s LEDs are designed for environments that demand the ultimate accuracy in color reproduction, and/or general aesthetics — ranging from fine-art museums and fashion retailing to hospital operating rooms and high-tech manufacturing.
