FuturoLighting selects state-of-the-art Osram LED technology for new lighting fixtures

Oct. 1, 2012
Date Announced: 01 Oct 2012 Duris E 5 LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors are featured in Catherina2The Catherina square ceiling fixture from LED lighting solutions specialist FuturoLighting is a new solution for widespread use in interior lighting, including architectural, retail or residential lighting applications. The energy efficient luminaire is optionally available with a motion sensor and emergency module, and has long operational life. Duris E 5 LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors, a mid-power LED which was specially developed for applications requiring high-output, homogenous planar light, will be installed in the luminaire.The optional smart sensor module in Catherina2 detects movement and distinguishes between day and night. Functionality developed for hotel corridors and rooms where light activation is only required when people are present, to the motion sensor can decrease facility power consumption. Additionally, based on customer requirements, Catherina2 can be equipped with a new emergency module, currently under development, that is based on lithium ion battery technology. Thanks to advanced Osram LED technology, Catherina2 offers high efficiency with minimal power requirements, a life expectancy of over 50,000 hours, and requires no maintenance other than normal dusting/cleaning during the entire product life. “We are proud to include Osram LED technology in our products, with their high quality, reliability and excellent support,” said Valentin Kulikov, CEO at FuturoLighting.Osram Duris E 5: The ideal LED for planar lightingThe Duris E 5 from Osram Opto Semiconductors is the perfect LED for a particularly homogenous distribution of light in panel lights. With a color temperature of 4,000 Kelvin and a high color-rendering (CRI) index of 85, the LEDs generate a light color that is similar to daylight – an aspect of particular importance in office and retail lighting, where Catherina2 is most used. The Duris E 5 is among the most efficient LEDs on the market in the mid-power performance class, achieving 110 lm/W (at 4,000 K and 120 mA). Since the product launched in October 2011, its output has increased by 25 percent. The LEDs are also achieving optimal lumen maintenance figures in accordance with the IESNA LM-80-08 standard. These results are an important factor in the Energy Star certification of LED lamps and luminaires in the United States and are also increasingly in demand worldwide as a standardized test method for lumen maintenance. "Duris E 5 is the ideal LED component for high-output, homogenous planar light applications, such as in Caterina2,” said Brian Terao, Director SSL LEDs at Osram Opto Semiconductors, Inc.. “The excellent price-to-performance ratio of this LED is prompting more and more manufacturers to convert their product designs to LED technology from Osram Opto Semiconductors."Catherina2: For all areasCatherina2 has dimensions of 300 x 300 x 55 mm, power consumption of around 25 VA and gives out around 1,600 lm in near Lambertian light distribution. Suitable applications include power-saving corridor illumination (hotels, museums, schools, hospitals, shopping centers, malls, etc.), residential illumination, retail illumination, architectural lighting, and many others.Please refer to FuturoLighting's website for more technical details about Catherina². Information about the Duris E 5 can be found in the Osram Opto Semiconductors’ product catalog.Photo: FuturoLightingFitted with Duris E 5 LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors, Catherina2 boasts energy-efficient, high-output, homogenous light.
