New LED from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors with high CRI for professional indoor lighting applications
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors presents a new DURIS E 5 with a significantly improved efficacy of more than 130 lm/W compared to the current version. A high color rendering index (CRI) of more than 90 and typically 95 enables high quality lighting solutions in shops or museums. Due to the same footprint and other common features, the new mid-power LED can replace the current product versions very easily.
The new DURIS E 5 (GW JDSRS1.CC) will complement the well-known DURIS product family of OSRAM Opto Semiconductors by mid of January 2015. With an improved efficacy of 131 lm/W at 4000 Kelvin (K) and 120 mA it is ideal for energy saving lighting applications. Furthermore, the new mid-power LED features an improved thermal conductivity as well as lower forward voltage (3.00 V at 120 mA). The optics are absolutely compatible to all members of the DURIS family and the platform design is the same, so customers can replace the current LED versions easily.
The good color rendering of typically 95 makes the new DURIS E 5 ideal for applications that require good quality of light and are particularly high, e. g. professional lighting solutions in shops or museums, but they can also be used for non-directional indoor LED retrofits. The well-known package offers great design flexibility for the customers and facilitates the replacement of previous product versions, too.
The new LED is available with different color temperatures from 2700 to 4000 K. The certification process for the high lifetime standard of LM-80 is already under way and will be finished in early 2015.
