Seoul Semiconductor, Lighting the Chinese Ancient Works of Art at Da An Art Gallery

Seoul Semiconductor Co., Ltd., a global LED maker, announced that their Z-Power LED P4 series products were used to the spotlights for the exhibits at Da An Art Gallery in Zhongshan City, Guangdong Province, China.

By taking the order from a gallery requiring particular standards, high technological power and stability of their LED products have been recognized. It is expected to save about 85% power saving compared to halogen lamps and to solve the problem of damage to the exhibits by ultraviolet radiation.

Lighting for exhibition at a gallery or a museum needs the optimal light source to show the colors and figures of exhibits to the viewers finely, so it is selected with particular standards considering the amount of ultraviolet rays and heat radiation.  While the existing halogen lamps and fluorescent lamps for galleries or museums require additional filters or caps to prevent ultraviolet radiation that may damage the exhibits, LED lighting without ultraviolet radiation doesn’t need any additional device.
     
Seoul Semiconductor replaced 50W halogen lamps with their 7.2W spotlights at the sculpture and calligraphy frame parts at Da An Art Gallery in China, which is expected to have 85% power saving. S42180 of Z-Power LED P4 series applied to those spotlights has the coloring rending index of 93 indicating high level of natural expression of light colors, and high efficiency, which is optimal for lighting of museums and galleries.
