Osram offers highly cost-effective solutions of automotive LED lights01-03-2014
The Oslon LX LED from Osram Opto Semiconductors offers affordable LED solutions for even the subcompact automotive market.
With the Oslon LX, Osram Opto Semiconductors is offering a new automotive LED light for widespread vehicular application . The focus is on the important functions of brightness and quality making these new, white light emitting diodes highly cost-effective, even for installation in subcompact vehicles. Oslon LX LEDs will be used mainly for daytime running lights and fog lights, which will provide visual and technical enhancements to automobiles from high-end to the entry level items.
Experience has shown it always takes time before the price of high-tech applications fall to acceptance by the mass market. Osram Opto Semiconductors has now reached this important boundary in automotive LED lights. The new Oslon LX LED is based on the conslidation between tried and tested package and converter technologies and a new chip technology (UX:3). This new technology offers the usual high quality standards and light output typical of all LED products from Osram.
What sets the Oslon LX LED apart is its focus on the main target of producing a large amount of light at an affordable price. Oslon LX is suitable for applications in which high light output and high energy efficiency are deciding factors – such as fog lights and daytime running lights. Low beam and high-beam applications are also possible, however, with a combination of several Oslon LX LEDs.
High quality at an affordable price
The Oslon LX LED is based on the latest UX:3 chip technology, with a tried and tested silicon converter. At a temperature of 25 degrees Celsius (in the chip), the LED produces 125 lumens from a current of 350 mA. At a higher operating temperature of around 100 degrees Celsius, the LED achieves a luminous flux of 100 lumens. The LED lens has a beam angle of 120 degrees which means the new LED meets the established standard for reflector solutions in automobiles and that the systems used in the compact and subcompact segments can be retained. Like the other highly successful LEDs from Osram Opto Semiconductors, the package for the Oslon LX is very compact, measuring only 3x3 mm2 and the solder pad design is same as the other Oslon automotive components.
LEDs for everyone
" The combination of high quality and low price means that LED designs can be introduced in many more brands of vehicles," said Michael Martens, Marketing Manager at Osram Opto Semiconductors. "Oslon LX is an LED for everyone and it adds our highly successful Oslon family with an attractive product for the lower price segment of the automotive market."
