Osram and LSG co-developing LED fixtures for City of Raleigh

The Golden Dragon LEDs of Osram Opto Semiconductors GmbH of Regensburg are to be used in low-bay fixtures made by Lighting Science Group Corp (LSG) of Dallas, TX, USA for a lighting project in the City of Raleigh, NC, USA that is expected to be completed by fall 2007.

LSG’s Optimized Digital Lighting (ODL) low-bay fixtures, each containing 112 Osram Golden Dragon LEDs, will replace the 12 metal halide lamps that are currently being used to illuminate a pedestrian tunnel running from the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex to a municipal car-parking garage.

“With Lighting Science’s fixtures, we are able to extend the use of Osram’s advanced LED technology in its Golden Dragon product into the industrial and commercial lighting markets,” says Tom Shottes, president and CEO of Osram Opto Semiconductors Inc.

Raleigh is the first city in the ‘LED City’ program, which it initiated with LED maker Cree Inc of Durham, NC, USA in February (Toronto joined the program in July). LED lighting projects include garage and parking lot lights, tunnel lighting, streetlights, architectural and accent lighting, portable lighting and pedestrian walkway lighting. LSG has already developed 141 ODL low-bay fixtures incorporating Cree’s XLamp LEDs for the Avery C. Upchurch Government Complex’s car park (ordered by the City of Raleigh last December).

Previously last yeasr, Osram Opto collaborated on developing LSG’s LED-based R-30 and MR-16 lamps (as replacements for the firm’s conventional MR-16 metalized reflector halogen lamps).
