Sunnyvale, Calif. - While sunsets can be stunning and relaxing to watch, they can also be stressful by making visibility difficult during late evening walks or long hours at construction sites. Flashlights and work lamps improve safety for walkers and workers by lighting these areas at night. Now, the manufacturers of these lighting solutions can benefit from the highly reliable, long-lasting (> 70,000h) and robust Osconiq P 3030.
Osram Opto Semiconductors is expanding its portfolio of high-power LEDs for general lighting with the Osconiq P 3030. Using their many years of experience in the automotive sector, developers transferred their knowledge of combining lead-frame technology with high-performance chips to high-volume products for the general lighting industry. Compared with the ceramic packages commonly used in this field, Osram’s new package provides customers a more robust component with a longer lifetime. The specially developed Surface Mounted Device (SMD) package with silicone lens provides outstanding brightness and efficiency values, as well as a better lumens-per-dollar ratio than ceramic packages used in similar applications.
Customers can choose between two Color Rendering Index (CRI) versions (CRI 70 and CRI 80) from the complete Correlated Color Temperature (CCT) range for different applications such as professional indoor or outdoor lighting solutions. While the CRI 70 version is available in color temperatures from 2700 K to 6500 K, the CRI 80 version covers the range from 2200 – 5000 K. Both products have compact dimensions of 3.0 mm x 3.0 mm and a height of only 1.63 mm, enabling space-saving luminaire designs. The 1 mm² chip in the CRI 70 version reaches 160 lm at 5000 K and has an impressive efficiency of 161 lm/W. The CRI 80 version delivers an impressive 135 lm at 3000 K and an efficiency value of 136 lm/W. Both components can be operated with high currents up to 1.3 A and simplify system design with a low thermal resistance.
"In addition to its superb brightness and increased longevity, the Osconiq P 3030 features a universal contact pad design, which allows ceramic components to be easily replaced," explains Todd Bartol, Director of Product Marketing, General Lighting in North America at Osram Opto Semiconductors
The two white LEDs will be joined later this year by color versions in deep blue (450 nm), blue (470 nm), true green (528 nm), red (623 nm), hyper red (660 nm) and far red (730 nm) for professional horticulture and outdoor lighting.
The Osconiq P 3030 is available in two different CRI versions and covers color temperatures ranging from 2200-6500 K.
