OSRAM Opto Semiconductors presents products for today and tomorrow at electronica 2010
From November 9 to 12 at the 2010 electronica fair in Munich OSRAM Opto Semiconductors will be showing just how extensively opto semiconductors are now being used in our everyday lives. In Hall 3, booth 107, the company will be showcasing LEDs, infrared and laser components for a wide variety of applications in the commercial, industrial and residential sectors. The slogan this year is “Follow the band of inspiration” – and there is plenty of scope for inspiration!The versatility of light emitting diodes has already led to some impressive and memorable designs, such as the front lighting on the Audi A8. IR components can provide breathtaking 3D effects through the interaction of a backlit LED TV and shutter glasses. Miniaturized projectors need laser or LED light sources to achieve high output and brilliant colors. Panel lights as style elements are setting new standards in room lighting. OSRAM Opto Semiconductors will be presenting all this and much more, providing a link between the systems that already exist today and the exciting possibilities that tomorrow will bring.
The entire booth will be illuminated by 200 LED spotlights each equipped with 44 of the latest high-power LEDs in the OSLON family from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. There are 22 LEDs in cold white and 22 in warm white so the lighting mood can be changed to suit particular needs. Visitors can experiment to see how the light color and brightness can be individually controlled with the aid of light emitting diodes.
“The wide variety of applications from so many different walks of life clearly shows that LEDs with their numerous benefits such as energy efficiency, long life and eco-friendly design now offer excellent options in general illumination”, said Martina Opitz, Marcom Manager at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors, who is responsible for the innovative booth concept.
This also applies to street lighting – various luminaires at the booth demonstrate the variety of designs and the high output levels that LEDs can deliver. A particular highlight here is a luminaire that uses infrared sensors to adjust the brightness of the LEDs to ambient conditions and is therefore capable of making significant energy savings.
Highlighting the conference room
The conference room at the booth is equipped with a wall of diffused light. The one meter by two meter plastic panels looks like a transparent glass wall when they are switched off but as soon as they are switched on around 7500 OSLON SSL 80 LEDs inject their white light into the plastic. Light is therefore more than just brightness, it is a design element.
With its booth concept, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors is continuing its successful cooperation with the architects and designers Bachmann-Kern & Partner, who designed the booth for electronica 2008. That booth won the Gold ADAM Award in 2009.
