Osram offers engineering kit on LED Light for You platform

LED maker Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany says that it is now offering the LED Engineering Kit for sale on the LED Light for You (LLFY) platform to provide a means of gaining practical knowledge of LED lighting.

The kit is a tool for testing LEDs, accessories and applications, and includes components from LLFY partners. In addition to Osram’s OSTAR high-power LED, there are various lenses and reflectors, a power supply, a thermal interface and a selection of heat sinks. A brochure is also included for technical assistance.

Lighting designers, luminaire manufacturers and architects can use the Engineering Kit as a simple way of gaining insight into LED technology and testing different LED lighting solutions, says Osram. Different reflectors, lenses and heat sinks can be combined to create variations and provide an idea of what the new light sources can achieve and what their special features are.

The kit contains the OSTAR LED, two reflectors from Fraen with medium and narrow beam angles, and three lenses from Ledil: one with a wide angle, a spot lens and a cat’s eye for side deflection. A thermal interface from Laird that provides optimum heat dissipation, two heat sinks (from Coolermaster and an aluminum plate) and an Osram Optotronic power supply for the European/Asian or NAFTA market round off the kit.

The kit demonstrates the options offered by LED light sources and indicates the accessories that are needed. “Our kit provides a quick and simple means of understanding the new LED technology,” says Sebastian Lyschick, Network Manager LLFY at Osram Opto. “It can be used as the basis for developing projects and products with network partners,” he adds.
