RS Components introduces new LED illumination products that match and recreate natural sunlight
Product News Tuesday, November 27, 2018: RS Components SA
Johannesburg, South Africa, 27 November, 2018 – RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global multi-channel distributor, has announced availability of a range of LED-based products that use new technology to deliver a quality of illumination that is exceptionally natural looking and is designed to be virtually indistinguishable from sunlight.
The ‘SunLike’ LED range from Seoul Semiconductor has been developed as a natural-light LED that is optimised for human-centric lighting. Sunlike contributes to the improvement of human health (including sleep quality and prevention of eye fatigue and myopia) by providing healthy light for the stabilisation of human biorhythms. Essentially, SunLike removes the high-energy short-wavelength blue LED light source and replaces it with a purple-light LED chip, which is based upon the combination of Seoul Semiconductor's patented LED chip technology along with innovative TRI-R phosphor technology from Toshiba Materials.
Having won numerous awards worldwide, the SunLike LEDs also triumphed at the recent Lux Awards 2018 in the ‘Enabling Technology of the Year’ category, which rewards exceptional technology developments in various fields including light sources, drivers, optics, thermal products and innovative materials.
A key element of the SunLike technology is the realisation of true natural colour with an excellent colour reproduction ratio (CRI) that is similar to sunlight. It scores a sunlight spectrum concordance rate of 94%. In addition, the SunLike LEDs offer high clarity and a dimensional sense to objects and text with glare-free illumination, making it an ideal technology for deployment in backlighting applications and touchscreen interface development in particular.
RS is now stocking a range of Seoul Semiconductor SunLike LEDs with warm-, natural- and cool-white colour temperatures including 2700K, 3000K, 3500K, 4000K and 5000K specification devices.
