Samsung Electronics announced it will launch a range of LED lamp solutions at Light + Building 2014, the world’s leading trade fair for architecture and technology, taking place in Frankfurt, Germany from 30 March to 4 April 2014. The new models are a lighter and more efficient PAR-series, lamps with a swivel-head PAR, a decorative classic design LED lamp, and an L-tube series with ECG and CCG compatibility.
“Based on our extensive experience with semiconductor and LED technology, as well as our knowledge of the appliances industry, we are in a unique position to deliver exciting smart solutions for the LED Lighting industry,” said Hee-Chong Yoon, Vice President of LED Lamp Marketing at Samsung Electronics. “Our ultimate goal is to connect the digital dots in our customer’s lives and Samsung is well positioned to deliver LED solutions for the Smart Homes of the future.”
The new range has been designed for both the B2B and B2C markets.
Unlike traditional Wi-Fi controllable LED lighting, the Smart Bulb utilizes Bluetooth technology which eliminates the need for a bridge and wireless AP, enabling the user to connect and control it directly from a smartphone or tablet PC. By installing an application, users can access and control of up to 64 Smart Bulbs with no additional equipment or set up required.
The Smart Bulb can be dimmed down to 10% brightness and is CCT tunable from 2700K (arm white) to 6500K (cool white). With a lifetime of 15,000 hours per Smart Bulb, users will receive approximately 10 years of highly-efficient light.
B2B customers can deploy the Zigbee Smart Bulb that allows lighting to be controlled from anywhere and from smart devices such as a smartphone and tablet PC.
Samsung’s Smart Bulb has been recognized for its design qualities by the iF Design award as well as receiving a Design Plus award. Samsung’s PAR-series delivers quality lighting without straining already existing fixtures thanks to its lightweight structure. With a high CRI of over 90 the PAR-series is suited for professional interior and color-critical applications.
With its unique modern design, the Samsung Swivel PAR lamp combines the spotlight and fixture. Its swivel head gives customers the flexibility to set the unit without the need of additional fixtures.
Past Meets Future
Samsung’s latest LED Classic Lamp delivers a warm and inviting environment that reminds people of incandescent lighting. The Classic Lamp is elegant without additional need for a separate fixture. Surrounded by a clear and transparent outer shell, it enhances the look and feel of any room.
Compatible with conventional ballast, the Samsung L-tube series is well-suited for internal areas and can be easily installed without re-wiring of fixtures. Installation cost remains low thanks to its ECG/CCG compatibility.
