Soraa’s New LED Optical Light Engines Are Poised To Inspire New Fixture Designs


Soraa Optical Light Engine

Soraa, the world leader in GaN-on-GaN™ LED technology, launched today a small, low profile series of light engines that provide fixture manufacturers access to the company’s full visible spectrum GaN-on-GaN LED technology. From narrow spot to flood, Soraa’s Optical Light Engines produce incredibly high CBCP; and the engine’s optical design provides flawless beam definition, smooth beam edges and is customizable with the company’s SNAP System. Designed for seamless fixture integration, the Optical Light Engines are compatible with a wide variety of industry-standard LED drivers and perfect for use in enclosed, non-ventilated indoor and outdoor fixtures.

“Fixture manufacturers have been asking for a compact, powerful, high-quality light engine and our full visible spectrum GaN-on-GaN LED technology has delivered. With Soraa’s signature POINT SOURCE OPTICS™, VP₃ VIVID COLOR™ and VP₃ NATURAL WHITE™ technology imbedded in the engine, we have brought brilliance to light,” said Susan Larson, VP of OEM Sales at Soraa. “Fixture manufacturers everywhere now have a true source of design inspiration.”

Soraa’s POINT SOURCE OPTICS™ technology produces beautiful, high-intensity and uniform beams within a very slim form factor. Narrow spot options at 10 degree or narrower are offered with an unprecedented low profile of only 16mm for 500 lumens, and 25mm for 1,000 lumens. The optics technology also enables the offering of a unique 9 degree ultra-narrow spot version that is as thin as 25mm.

Soraa’s Violet-Emission 3-Phosphor (VP₃) LED technology allows 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. And unlike blue-based white LEDs without any violet emission, the company’s VP₃ NATURAL WHITE™ is achieved by engineering the violet emission to properly excite fluorescing brightening agents including natural objects like human eyes and teeth; as well as manufactured white materials such as clothing, paper and cosmetics.

Soraa’s new Optical Light Engines are available in three sizes 11, 16, 30 (or 1.5”—37mm, 2”—50mm, and 4”—100mm diameters); lumen outputs of 500 or 1000 (in 95CRI); 9 and 10 degree, 25 degree, and 36 degree beam angles; 2700K, 3000K, 4000K, and 5000K color temperatures; and with an optional heat sink. Additionally, Soraa's narrow spot beam light engines work with its award-winning magnetic accessory SNAP System. With a simple magnetic accessory attachment, beam shapes can be altered and color temperature can be modified, allowing endless design and display possibilities.
