Lumiblade OLEDs are a true raw material that can be integrated seamlessly into any design. The customer decides whether to receive the OLEDs with or without wiring. Since we maintain a large stock of most of these OLEDs, delivery takes just a few days. This means this new lighting technology can even be used in time-critical lighting projects.
Designers and those interested have access to OLEDs in their original form in the Lumiblade shop.
With its new “Brite” OLED series, Philips is now also paving the way for the use of OLED lighting in functional situations. The Brite FL300 is the first representative of this new series and has impressive performance specifications for OLED panels, providing 300 lumens over a good 144 cm2 at an efficiency of over 50 lumens per watt. This makes it the brightest commercially available OLED in the world. Shipping from the third quarter of 2014, the Brite FL300 will be available in a variety of integration levels. This makes it the ideal introduction to the world of OLED lighting for OEMs, for example. The Brite FL300 has already begun to show what it can do, and has been chosen by Italian furniture manufacturer Riva1920 for use in its first light: the K Blade. Philips themselves are also using four of these OLEDs in their first OLED luminaire, which will be launched in spring 2014.
Being extremely thin, OLEDs are virtually made to do their job subtly below shelves or wall units. Unlike traditional light sources, which are difficult to hide, OLEDs remain invisible until they are needed – then they spread their natural, even light across the depth of the room. On a shop shelf the light not only looks better – it also has practical advantages. Thanks to its illumination at depth, the owner is suddenly presented with more attractive sales areas than before. The changeover to modern lighting technology is made even easier by the use of Lumiblade undershelf light OLEDs. The plastic frame in a choice of white, black or silver contains not only a Brite FL300 OLED, but also the electronics required for operation. Simply mount the housing where you want it, connect to the power and you’re done. It couldn’t be any easier.
Whether at an events center, an office building or a hotel, many visitors would be completely lost if not provided with the right information in the right place – especially in an emergency. However, previous solutions have mainly stood out for the way they clash with their architectural surroundings – and have not been self-luminous. With the Philips Lumiblade OLED Panel SI210.105, there is now a solution on the market that is strikingly subtle. Thanks to its thickness of just a few millimeters, the shape of this OLED – which has been designed especially for use in signage – melts into the background while its direct, full-coverage light provides easily visible information and orientation.
LED drivers such as those in the Philips Xitanium series are currently still being used to power OLEDs. This is a good solution, but the properties of OLEDs are so specialized that LED drivers cannot realize their full potential. That is why Philips Lumiblade offers drivers that have been developed specially to meet the requirements of OLEDs. The Philips Lumiblade D230 V 80 W/0.1-0.5/1 A/28 V TD/A 8 ch driver, for example, can be used to power up to eight OLEDs simultaneously at a maximum brightness of 2,400 lumens. At the same time the built-in power supply unit means that the driver can be plugged in to the mains anywhere in the world without an adapter (except in Japan). The world’s most compact OLED driver offers users an easy introduction to the world of OLED lighting, e. g. as a component in a light with functional lighting levels.
