Soraa Solves Compatibility Issues By Launching New Constant Current LED Lamp

Soraa, the world leader in GaN on GaN™ LED technology, announced today that it has introduced a perfectly compatible version of its award-winning MR16 LED lamp. Featuring the company’s signature elements of full-visible-spectrum light, Soraa’s constant current MR16 LED lamp is the ideal lighting solution for restaurants, retail, high-end residential, and office environments where superior light quality and dimming are essential.

Equipped with a standard GU5.3 two-pin base, Soraa’s constant current MR16 LED lamp fits into any MR16 fixture and fully conforms to the ANSI/ IECE compatible form factor. Unlike other MR16 LED lamps, the constant current LED lamp is designed to accept an external driver which supplies the lamp with low voltage DC input current, eliminating the need to fit a transformer in limited space.

Providing enormous dimming and control flexibility, light output can now be programmed to the desired level when using a programmable or remote driver. The lamp also achieves zero flicker when used with a DC driver and is available in 10 degree, 25 degree and 36 degree versions.

“Incompatibility issues between LED lamps, fixtures, dimmers and transformers continue to hinder the advancement and adoption of LED technology,” explained George Stringer, Senior VP of North America Sales at Soraa. “Our new constant current MR16 LED lamp overcomes these hurdles, enabling flexibility and choice without compromising on performance and quality.”

Soraa’s constant current MR16 LED lamp features the company’s Point Source Optics for beautiful, high intensity, and uniform beams; and unique Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VP₃) LED technology for perfect rendering of colors and whiteness. Utilizing every color in the rainbow, especially deep red emission, Soraa’s VP₃ Vivid Color renders warm tones beautifully and accurately, and achieves a color-rendering index (CRI) of 95 and deep red (R9) rendering of 95 at color temperatures ranging from 2700 K to 4000 K. And unlike blue-based white LEDs without any violet/ ultra-violet emission, the company’s VP₃ Natural White is achieved by engineering the violet emission to properly excite fluorescing agents including natural objects like human eyes and teeth, as well as manufactured white materials such as clothing, paper and cosmetics.
