REGENSBURG, Germany - The Golden DRAGON oval Plus LED from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors provides ideal illumination for energy-efficient street lighting without the need for secondary optics due to the new integrated lens. Its oval radiation pattern delivers directed light, ideal for street lighting, and its integrated lens significantly reduces the overall effort for this application.

Golden DRAGON oval Plus has been developed as an easy-to-use LED solution specifically for street lighting applications. With its unique oval beam characteristics (80° vertical, 120° horizontal) and integrated long-life silicon lens, it provides energy-efficient street lighting with minimal light pollution. The light is directed precisely on the area to be illuminated with no upward stray light.

Since different roads call for different lighting environments, Golden DRAGON oval Plus LED is available in various white tones with an efficiency of 90 lm/W in cold white (6500 K color temperature) and 80 lm /W in neutral white (5000 K). The warm white version with a color temperature between 2700 and 4500 is ideal for any lighting scenario where a warm and welcoming atmosphere is required, such as in a historic city center. At 4500 K it achieves an efficiency of 65 lm/W and produces an aesthetically pleasing warm white light.

The main feature of the Golden DRAGON oval Plus LED is its integrated lens. The lens makes secondary optics unnecessary, while enabling street lighting applications to be realized with much less effort, delivering unprecedented application efficiency from an LED component. The LED is also suitable for standard solder processes.

"Our new 'street lighting LED' combines various lighting benefits in one innovative package. It is highly efficient, and has a long lifetime due to its silicone lens. Additionally, it offers good visibility at night because the LEDs can be arranged in the system to distribute the light accurately, delivering light where it is most needed. This new light source also makes it easier to upgrade current systems to more efficient street lighting with LED technology," said Dr. Markus Klein, Head of SSL Product Development at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors.

The Golden DRAGON oval Plus is suitable for all applications that call for efficient lighting with a homogenous oval light pattern, particularly street and tunnel lighting. It meets all the requirements for homogenous illumination. The LEDs are also lead-free and mercury-free, making them an ideal solution for the future of more energy efficient, environmentally friendly outdoor lighting.
