OSRAM PrevaLED: Creative Freedom for Luminaire Designers

Flexibility, great freedom of design and high efficiency – these are the main advantages of the new PrevaLED Core Light Engines by OSRAM.

The PrevaLED range is designed using a modular principle and thanks to fixed interfaces reduces both development effort and time to market for luminaire developments. The system consisting of light engine and electronics control gear is small, easy to use and extremely powerful.

PrevaLED light engines enable luminaire manufacturers - despite the fast development cycle of LED - to significantly reduce the effort of developing new luminaires and thus to save costs. Design ideas can be evaluated and realized much quicker.
The PrevaLED Core product family provides a wide range of lumen output options from 800lm to 3.000lm at a system efficiency of up to 75lm/W and is available in the colour temperatures 3.000K and 4.000K. A special feature of this system is its outstanding light quality with a colour rendering index (CRI) >90, without compromises in system efficiency. Active control of the light engines reduces the tolerances between single light engines below the limit of visual perception and ensures top quality of light in the application.
Thanks to intelligent system design, currently available lumen packages will be available for years, independent of increased LED efficiency, thus permitting a future-proof luminaire design.
Individual Future-Proof Luminaire Design:
Irrespective of the lumen output, all round modules have the same dimensions (50mm diameter) and feature the same integrated reflector mounting options. Thanks to the wide beam angle of 140° these light engines are ideally suited for light shaping with reflectors. The light engines can be flexibly combined with various control gears allowing the simple integration of additional functions such as dimming, if so required. The combination of these features and their compact size make PrevaLED Core light engines ideally suited for use in downlights and spots of various output powers.

Further highlights of the wide product range will be on display at the OSRAM Light + Building trade fair stand in Hall 2.0, Stand B 50.
