Ostar Lighting Plus – a newcomer to Osram Opto Semiconductors’ high-power LED portfolio
OSTAR Lighting Plus, a new power pack from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, produces an immense amount of light from a small area and significantly outperforms its predecessors in terms of energy efficiency. With impressive brightness and color stability, this high-power LED is ideally suited for use in retrofits for incandescent or halogen lamps. The OSTAR Lighting Plus contains four chips fabricated with state-of-the-art UX:3 chip technology and emits either cold white or warm white light.
The OSTAR Lighting Plus LED has an impressive brightness of 425 lm (5700 K to 6500 K) or 365 lm (2700 K to 4000 K) at an operating current of 350 mA. This results in a typical efficiency of approximately 100 lm/W or 80 lm/W respectively. “OSTAR Lighting Plus is very efficient at higher currents and offers high light output thanks to the extremely uniform flux distribution over the entire chip surface,” said Andreas Vogler, Marketing Manager General Illumination (SSL) at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. “The greater brightness level per chip area makes the OSTAR Lighting Plus ideal for applications where space is tight, such as LED luminaires and retrofits.” Homogenous white light is ensured by an ANSI-compatible binning system with fine sub-bins. The LED is easy to handle due to its SMT compatibility.
With a power draw of less than 5W, the warm white OSTAR version produces 365 lm from only four chips, significantly brighter than 25W incandescent lamps, which produce only 220 lm. Therefore, energy savings of more than 80% can be achieved with the OSTAR Lighting Plus, despite a luminous flux that is 65% higher – a major contribution to energy-efficient lighting. Only four OSTAR Lighting Plus units are needed to replace a frosted 100 W incandescent lamp. Additionally, the OSTAR Lighting Plus has an impressive color-rendering index (CRI) of 80.
Applications for the new OSTAR Lighting Plus power LED include interior lighting for shops, offices and homes, as well as various applications that require strong directional light from a small unit, such as spotlighting. The small dimensions of OSTAR Lighting Plus also make it the ideal replacement for applications that are currently served by primarily halogen lamps.
OSTAR Lighting Plus will be introduced in November 2010 at electronica in Munich (hall A3, booth 107) and will be available on the market at the start of 2011.
