ASELight STAR to Replace Discontinued OSRAM OSTAR

At Electronica 2010 in Munich Asetronics introduced the ASELight STAR, a replacement product for OSRAM OSTAR Lighting. The successor product has been developed in collaboration with OSRAM Opto Semiconductors on the proven basis of the previous LED and will be produced and sold exclusively by Asetronics.

The new OSRAM OSTAR Lighting Plus LED light source is the basis for the ASELight Star. It is equipped with the latest OSRAM chip generation and guarantees well-known reliability. The module is based on the identical platform (Hexagonal) as the previous product, OSTAR Lighting. This makes it possible to use the new product as a 1:1 replacement in an existing system. The new four-chip version achieves a brightness of 700lm at 700mA. The proven hexagonal design allows a high packing density making it possible to combine several ASELight STAR modules at the same time like a mosaic in order to achieve large lighting surfaces with a wide variety of contours.

As with its predecessor, the ASELight STAR can be easily fitted with screws or clips. The power cable can be soldered or connected using clips.

With colour temperatures of 3000K (warm white) and 6500K (cold white) it can be used for a wide range of applications. Additional colour temperatures will be added at a later date.
