LEDON OLED Lighting presents optimized OLED lighting modules on the Plastics Electronics 2010 in Dresden
Demonstration of optimized OLED module system LUCEOS for the easy integration of OLED lighting elements
The Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) technology is the first real area light source technology in his-tory. The presented prototypes combine high performance OLEDs in a compact and usable contact- and housing module system.
The LUCEOS OLED modules combine best lighting area aspect ratio with a slim form factor and excel-lent optical properties to achieve the best results for large area effect lightings.
The LUCEOS module series offers a hexagonal module system, which are especially useful in effect lighting systems. The extreme thin lighting modules (< 4mm) offer high quality lighting in combination with an integrated driving electronic for large area effect lighting installations.
For the first time the LUCEOS module series offers two dimming options, a pulse-width modulation and a complete DMX512 dimming. The innovative setup of a DMX512 control offers the easy and flexible inte-gration for large area installations.
The OLED module systems will be available as engineering samples and evaluation kit in November. The volume delivery is planned for beginning of 2011.
On the fair also luminaire concepts based on the module systems will be presented.
The OLED module systems will be presented on the OES Booth, Hall 2.
An organic light-emitting diode (OLED) comprises a system of thin organic layers (approx. 200-400 nano-metres thick), located between two electrode layers (anode and cathode). Printed onto a glass substrate, this wide-area light source is less than 2 millimetres thick. When a voltage is applied, light is generated within the system of layers and emerges through one of the electrode layers. In contrast to conventional light sources, OLEDs give off wide-area light with high-quality colour rendering, which is very pleasant for the human eye. Another advantage is that there is no glare to the light emitted by OLEDs. As a result, OLEDs need no reflectors to reduce glare, which puts them among the most efficient light sources of all.
