OSRAM SYLVANIA debuts LINEARlight Flex® LED Module Family
New generation of high performance flexible LED lighting for accent and decorative applications


Las Vegas and Danvers, Mass. (May 9, 2012) Continually bringing innovative and sustainable lighting solutions to the market, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA today introduced its new family of LINEARlight Flex® LED modules designed to deliver high efficiency, decorative light ideal for retail and commercial applications. 

The state-of-the-art LINEARlight Flex® LED Module Family offers flexible lighting system options for indoor use and is available in three levels of output – 118, 237 and 520 lumens per foot – to complement a wide range of applications. The three levels consist of the LINEARlight POWER Flex®, LINEARlight Flex® ShortPitch and LINEARlight Flex® Advanced. Each module is a flexible self-adhesive circuit board designed for easy installation in custom or standard fixtures for cove and edge lighting, display shelves and handrail applications. 


With an intelligent design, the LINEARlight POWER Flex® is a source of powerful light with high lumen output. The LINEARlight POWER Flex® measures 9.8 feet long and modules can be field cut for a custom fit. This LED module is ideal for applications that require bright, high quality light such as nightlife and retail installations while saving energy over traditional accent lighting solutions.   

LINEARlight Flex® ShortPitch

The innovative LINEARlight Flex® ShortPitch is designed to fit into the tiniest spaces to create beautiful, bright illumination for accent lighting applications. The 19.7 foot LED foot board allows for customization every 5cm, creating a custom fit every time. Deriving its name from the tight spacing between the LEDs on the flexible board, the LINEARlight Flex® ShortPitch offers non-glaring, uniform light and color consistency, even when mounted close to a reflecting surface or lens, and is ideal for office and retail applications.

LINEARlight Flex® Advanced

A high efficacy LED module, the LINEARlight Flex® Advanced uses a lower lumen level suitable for longer spaces such as handrails and staircases. The Flex Advanced uses fewer power supplies than similar accent lighting solutions due to reduced power consumption. The LINEARlight Flex® Advanced also allows for small, precise cuts along the module, providing an even distribution of light throughout installation. 

Utilizing advanced LED technology, the LINEARlight Flex® Family offers a variety of high-efficiency LED options designed to create exceptional illumination for a variety of accent indoor lighting applications. This new generation of linear LED modules not only offers flexibility for custom applications, but because of the long life of the LEDs and low energy consumption, users stand to realize energy and maintenance cost savings as well.
