Osram Releases New Color-Beautify LEDs with Higher Efficacy

The new “Brilliant Color” LED is especially designed for shop lighting applications as it features a high color quality which is very similar to that of high intensity discharge lamps (HID). This enables rich and saturated colors and provides a high quality of white. The high-tech company also launches product versions with an increased efficacy of up to 15%, depending on the LED type. The performance improvement refers to all Soleriq S 19 LEDs with CRIs of 70, 80 and 90. The new versions of the CoB family (Chip-on-Board) will be introduced step-by-step from mid of August till the end of the year.

With its new Soleriq S 19 “Brilliant Color” Osram Opto Semiconductors has managed to optimize the spectrum of the light source. The increased color gamut, together with the high color rendering index (CRI) of typ. 85 ensure a good rendering of colors. This superior color quality originally is a key feature of high intensity discharge lamps (HID) and, until now, has been barely seen as a characteristic of LEDs. As the color appears more saturated the new LED can emphasis and create an appealing appearance of commercial products. Together with its further features like small size, directed light distribution, no heat radiation directly to the objects, minimal infrared and no UV radiation as well as long lifetime it is an ideal solution for shop lighting applications where products have to look as best as possible.

The three additional new versions of the Soleriq S 19 with CRIs of 70, 80 and 90 can be implemented in spot lights, professional downlights and general indoor lighting applications. With color temperatures between 2700 and 6500 Kelvin they offer warm white and cold white light for different lighting solutions. The substrate size of all versions includes 24.0 mm x 24.0 mm x 1.4 mm, the operating temperature ranges between -30° C and 105° C, the junction temperature goes up to 125° C.

The launch of the “Brilliant Color” and the CRI 80 and CRI 90 versions is scheduled for mid of August 2015. The Soleriq S 19 with CRI 70 will be available by the end of the year. The certification process based on the LM-80 standard (Energy Star) is in progress. The results for 3000 and 6000 hours are already available; the readout for 10.000 hours is expected by the end of the year.
