July 11, 2014 - PRLog -- Sharp Europe has expanded its LED lighting range with two new luminaires in the KATO product family. Extremely powerful, highly efficient and quick to install, the KATO L (high bay) and KATO S (low bay) luminaires offer cost-effective and high quality lighting solutions for a wide variety of industrial spaces, with mounting heights from four to 15 metres and three different beam angles.

Jennifer Campbell, General Manager, Sharp LED Lighting Europe, said: “We have improved the efficiency of the KATO low bay luminaire with this second generation product, giving customers the chance to reduce their energy costs even more. The high bay (KATO L) also extends our product portfolio to fulfill all possible requests for different mounting heights and beam angles for industrial applications.”

Efficient, robust and secure

Both KATO luminaires offer high efficiency (110 lm/W for KATO S and up to 104 lm/W for KATO L), some of the best levels available on the market. They also offer high quality light control and colour rendering (CRI > 80) over the complete service life.

KATO luminaires are IP66-rated, robust and secure, with a die-cast aluminium body protecting from foreign objects, water and impact (IK08 for KATO L and IK07 for KATO S), making them ideal for industrial buildings, public transport facilities, storage and exhibition spaces and sports halls.

Designed for standard use within damp indoor and outdoor environments and using optimised thermal management, the new luminaires can withstand extreme temperatures, e.g. -30°C to +45°C with 50,000 hours service life (L80/B10) for KATO L.

Easy to install

The installation process is easy, with a rapid mounting plate for ceiling mounting or 2-point chain suspension in Y-form for suspended mounting. Using chain suspension, the luminaires can be used for canopied outdoor areas.

KATO L allows for mounting heights of up to 15 metres and provides three different beam angles: narrow wide, narrow and extremely narrow.

A DIALux plug-in is available for download.

Sharp offers a standard 5 year warranty on all LED lighting products.
