Tridonic's LUREON REP – a Breakthrough in the World of OLEDs

At the beginning of the new year Tridonic landed a big breakthrough with OLED modules for professional lighting. Available in series, the new lighting module from the OLEDmodule LUREON REP product range for the first time achieves a luminous flux of more than 100 lumens, at dimensions of 99 x 99 mm². In addition, LUREON REP achieves a system efficiency of over 50 lm/W in neutral white, which is much higher than that achieved by comparable products on the market.

The square OLEDmodule LUREON REP module will be available from mid-March with a colour temperature of 4,000 K, featuring extremely high levels of luminous emittance (up to 12,000 lm/m²) and luminance (4,000 cd/m²). It goes without saying that the new modules are also incorporated into Tridonic's converter solutions.

Use in professional lighting applications:
“With LUREON REP we managed to achieve a major breakthrough in the world of OLEDs. A new performance category of OLEDs has been defined at more than 50 lm/W and high brightness levels, so that now we are for the first time able to implement professional lighting applications,” explains Jörg Amelung, Managing Director of Tridonic's OLED division. Moreover, excellent colour rendering (CRI > 80), an extremely low colour angle shift (x, y ≤ 0.005) and low colour tolerance (MacAdam 4) add up to establishing the OLED lighting module also on the professional market. Due to a module thickness of less than 3 mm, the OLED module is ideal for use in free-standing and pendant luminaires.
