Osram infrared Platinum Dragon- ideal for lighting solutions where space is an important factor
The infrared Platinum Dragon from Osram provides a high radiance from a small surface and generates an optical output of almost 1 W from a driving current of 1 A – that’s almost twice the output of the standard chips that have been used up to now. The viewing angle and radiant intensity can be varied with standard secondary optics. Preferred applications are those which require high radiance so that small optics can be used. This is important for example in pedestrian protection systems and night vision systems in vehicles. Thanks to its high radiance from a small surface the infrared Stack Dragon gives access to the next level of optical output performance and thus opens up new applications for the future.
With its high optical output from a small surface area the infrared Platinum Dragon is ideal for lighting solutions where space is an important factor. Night vision systems in vehicles, pedestrian protection systems and precrash sensors can also be made much more compact because fewer IR LEDs are needed to provide the same optical output.
