Sharp Introduces Industry-First LED Ceiling Lights

On August 19, 2010, Sharp Corporation held a press conference in Tokyo to present its new LED ceiling lights.

Sharp announced it is following up its LED lamps with another mainstay of residential lighting by introducing six models of industry-first*1 LED ceiling lights into the Japanese market.

Using Sharp's proprietary light diffusion technology, these ceiling lights achieve a thin design that is 43 mm at the thickest part and just 8 mm at the thinnest.

Three of the models, the DL-C501V/C301V/C302V, allow the use of a remote controller to change the color of the white light with the Adjustable Color function, and to adjust brightness with the Dimmer function. These functions combine to offer 110 different levels of color and brightness that match the mood or time of day. These lights also have three eco-functions that reduce energy consumption by up to 65%*2. The Eco Light Rhythm function, for example, is a proprietary lighting program that automatically adjusts the color and brightness throughout the day; for instance, it matches the lifestyle rhythms of the user by giving crisp, cool daylight white for a refreshing wake-up in the morning, or a warm white in the evening when a relaxing atmosphere is desired.
