LEDs from Osram bring out natural colours in the home4 June 2014
Osram Opto Semiconductors has added two further models with excellent colour rendering to its Duris S 5 family of LEDs. The new LEDs are said to be ideal for use in the home, for example installed in downlights or LED retrofit lamps.
“The Duris portfolio has been expanded with the addition of two new LEDs with an impressive CRI of more than 90. This product family now offers customers even greater flexibility in terms of performance, areas of application and technology than ever before,” said Janick Ihringer, product manager for general illumination at Osram Opto Semiconductors.
The previous Duris S 5 versions already had a high colour rendering index of more than 80, but the additions are even better in this respect. The new LEDs are ideal particularly for applications where the colours have to appear as natural as possible. Their main use will therefore be in the home. The light from the new Duris S 5 models make the colours of wooden dining tables and flooring for example look rich and natural. Natural colour rendering also plays an important role in shop lighting, whether for clothing or food.
The new Duris S 5 also offers impressive output. The two-chip version has a high luminous flux value of 83 lumen at 150 mA (typically at 3000 K).
