OSRAM presents new SOLERIQ S 19 version with higher efficacy
OSRAM Opto Semiconductors complements its’ SOLERIQ S 19 portfolio with the new “Brilliant Color” LED that is especially designed for retail and shop lighting applications because it features high color quality, very similar to that of high intensity discharge lamps (HID). High color quality enables rich and saturated colors and also provides a high quality of white. OSRAM also launched SOLERIQ S 19 versions with an increased efficacy of up to 15 percent, depending on the LED type. The performance improvement refers to all SOLERIQ S 19 LEDs with color rendering indexes (CRI) of 70, 80 and 90. The new versions of the CoB (Chip-on-Board) family will be introduced step-by-step from mid of August until the end of the year.
With the 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 CRI of 85 (typical) ensures exceptional rendering of colors. Rendering superior color quality was originally a key feature of high intensity discharge lamps (HID) and, until now, has been rarely seen as a characteristic of LEDs. As the color appears more saturated under this light, these new LEDs help create an appealing appearance of commercial products and displays. Together with features such as small size, directed light distribution, no radiated heat directed towards lit objects, minimal infrared and no UV radiation as well as long lifetime, they are an ideal solution for retail and shop lighting applications where products have to look as appealing as possible.
The three additional new versions of the SOLERIQ S 19 with CRI 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 cool white light for different lighting solutions. The substrate size of all versions is 24.0 mm x 24.0 mm x 1.4 mm, the operating temperature ranges between -30° C and 105° C and the junction temperature goes up to 125° C.
The “Brilliant Color” and the CRI 80 and CRI 90 versions are available now and 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 3,000 and 6,000 hours are already available and the results for 10,000 hours is expected by year end.
