Date Announced: 08 Sep 2011 Everything gives off light – windows, walls or furniture. Thanks to organic light emitting diodes (OLED), what is presently only a vision of architects and designers can soon become reality. In order to familiarise lighting professionals, ranging from lighting designers right up to electricians, with the technology in advance, OSRAM now offers its first OLED-module: Orbeos Dance invites one to experiment and represents yet another step toward introducing OLED to the market on a wide scale.Be it with the first panels, thus individual tiles, from serial production or OLED-designer luminaires – in the past years, OSRAM has repeatedly set new accents for OLED. With Orbeos Dance, the lighting manufacturer now offers its first OLED-module: an OLED-panel, mounted in a casing with a plug & play connection. The advantage over the panel: it can be put into operation easily and quickly, and one can start experimenting immediately.Excite the masses with OLEDWith Orbeos Dance, OSRAM consistently takes yet another step towards mass application of OLED-technology. Already since 2008 the company has been manufacturing and distributing panels from the Orbeos-series.

With the first pilot production line for OLED, which was launched in Regensburg in August and which is the first of its kind worldwide, OSRAM continues to drive forth technological progress in the lighting market.Technical Specifications:Diameter module: 112 mmDiameter illuminated surface: 79 mmThickness: 6.8 mmColor temperature: 2,900 K (warm white)Luminance density: 900 cd/m2Color rendering: 85Technical Data SheetElectrical and optical characteristic values refer to operation with grouping current.ABOUT OSRAMOSRAM (Munich) belongs to the Industry Sector of Siemens and is one of the two leading light manufacturers in the world.
