New Duris S 8 LEDs With Even Better Color Rendering and Good Color Consistency

Osram Opto Semiconductors presents two new members of its Duris LED family with a very good color rendering. The CRI (color rendering index) of the Duris S 8 GW P9LM32.CM and GW P9LR31.CM is at 95 (typ.) respectively 90 (min.). Due to same footprint and design the different versions can be replaced easily. The thermal resistance and the forward voltage of the new products are lower than its predecessors. The LEDs are binned at 100° C, so their brightness and color values can accurately be determined with regard to their later use.

The new Duris S 8 with CRI 90 are the next step in the Duris S series regarding increasingly better color rendering. The very good color consistency (color binning) is achieved through the close grouping of the multi-chip LEDs, which corresponds to the coverage of a 5-step MacAdam ellipse. 3-step MacAdam grouping is additionally available. As its predecessors, the products are grouped at the junction temperature of 100° C instead of at room temperature. Another positive characteristic is the improved thermal conductivity.

The footprint (5.89 mm x 5.2 mm) of the new high-power LEDs exactly corresponds to the existing Duris S 8 versions as well as the viewing angle of 120°. The optics are also compatible to the predecessors so the different versions can be replaced easily. The correlated color temperatures (CCTs) can be chosen between 2,700 and 4,000 Kelvin. With the new Duris LEDs single light source design can be implemented. This avoids multiple shadow effects and simplifies lens and PCB (printed circuit board) design.

The new Duris S 8 can be inserted in retrofits and fixtures for accent and effect lighting in shops and museums. The certification process for the high lifetime standard of LM-80 with 6,000 hour tests for both new LEDs is done and the results are already available.
