Panasonic Corp will release two models of standard type EVERLEDS LED bulbs featuring the wide light distribution angle of approximately 300 degrees. LED bulbs are quickly finding their way into homes thanks to their high energy efficiency and long life. However, applications of existing LED bulbs are limited to illuminating spots beneath the lamps because of the bulbs’ narrower light dispersion than incandescent bulbs.
Although the existing LED bulbs are suitable for such areas entrances, bathrooms and staircases, there are demands for LED bulbs that can distribute light at wide angle when used in diffusing panel covered lighting equipments and that can illuminate a broader area.
Panasonic’s new LED bulbs have responded such demands with the two key technologies: "optical design technology that spreads light using a combination of LED packages arranged in a circular pattern inside a large globe and a double reflector structure" and a "high heat dissipation technology with the circuit arranged above the LED packages in order for the circuit parts to be away from the body where the heat converges."
The new LED bulbs provide the industry's widest light distribution angle of approximately 300 degrees, which is almost equivalent to the angle of incandescent lamps. The new LED bulbs can replace incandescent bulbs used in light fixtures that help disperse the light throughout the room, giving lighting effects with a light distribution angle almost equal to incandescent light bulbs.
The new E-26 base LED bulbs come in two colors, warm lamp color (LDA7L-G) and daylight color (LDA7D-G) which has brightness equivalent to a 40W incandescent lamp and boast a long service life of 40,000 hours.
