Osram adds system integrators to LED Light for You network

LED maker Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg, Germany says that, in addition to existing partners from optics, thermal management and electronics (OTE), its internet-based LED Light for You (LLFY) partnering network (established in May 2008) now includes system integrators.

Osram Opto says that system integrators make it easier for end users to use pioneering LED technology for various lighting solutions. They form the professional interface between the customer and the application, linking customers to appropriate OTE specialists for their specific requirements, while acting as coordinators between OTE specialists in all three optics, thermal management and electronics sectors. If requested to do so, system integrators can also coordinate all activities necessary for completion of a customer's project, offering support for end users at all stages.

“The network therefore offers a complete solution from a single source for various target groups such as architects, luminaire manufacturers and anyone interested in LED technology,” says Sebastian Lyschick, LLFY project manager at Osram Opto. “As a link between LED users and specialists from the OTE sectors, the system integrator can coordinate entire projects or various aspects of such projects,” he adds.

Specialist system integrators are available for a wide variety of lighting solutions, such as those for architectural applications, for applications in the signage industry, and for the design of LED luminaires. For example, in the architectural sector it is lighting planners who take on this role. At present, there are 13 system integrators among about 80 partners currently active throughout the world, says Osram Opto.

The system integrator concept improves the service and customer satisfaction levels of the LLFY network, claims the firm. The network provides a clear roadmap in the highly fragmented LED market, supports potential users of LED technology, and helps find expert partners for partial and complete projects, it adds. Osram assures that it certifies LLFY partners in accordance with strict quality guidelines.
