Las Vegas and Danvers, Mass. (June 3, 2014) – Demonstrating its expertise in solid state lighting innovation, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is showcasing the OSRAM PrevaLED® Core Z3 LED Light Engine, a Zhaga Book 3 compliant, high-efficacy, high-power light source for spot and downlight applications at LIGHTFAIR® International (LFI®) 2014.  Offering efficacy of up to 121 lumens per watt, these 2-inch diameter round light engines are operable over a wide range of drive currents (300-1200 mA), reducing luminaire design-in time and providing easy tuning of fixtures for specific applications.  Dimmable down to 1 percent with the OSRAM OPTOTRONIC® Programmable power supplies, the PrevaLED Core Z3 is also designed with poke-in wire connectors for easy integration into luminaires.

OSRAM SYLVANIA will be demonstrating the PrevaLED Core Z3 and a full portfolio of solid state and traditional lighting solutions, controls and systems at Booth #3108 at LFI® 2014, the world’s largest annual architectural and commercial lighting trade show and conference.  LFI 2014 is sponsored by the Illuminating Engineering Society (IES) and the International Association of Lighting Designers (IALD).  OSRAM SYLVANIA has been supporting LFI since its inception 25 years ago, bringing fully integrated lighting products and services that take lighting designers, end users, luminaire manufacturers and service providers beyond the boundaries of conventional lighting.

According to the international Zhaga Consortium, Zhaga specifications benefit manufacturers, distributors, specifiers and end users of lighting products.  For recessed downlight, track and task lighting manufacturers, Zhaga Book 3 compliant solutions like the PrevaLED Core Z3 provide faster time to market and consistency for new next generation products.  Given the rapid evolution of LED technology, specifiers don’t have to worry about specifying solutions that will be outdated when the project is actually installed.  Luminaires can be specified for future projects with the peace of mind that a current Zhaga Book 3 compliant LED light source can be fitted at the time of installation. 

 “Our partners need solutions that reduce complexity, and when it comes to luminaire design for recessed downlights, accent and track applications, that means easy installation, consistent form factor and a wide variety of options,” said David Lidrbauch, product marketing manager, Light Engines & Modules, OSRAM SYLVANIA.  “The OSRAM PrevaLED Core Z3 Light Engine offers exactly that through a combination of Zhaga Book 3 compliant components, consistent light quality over successive generations, and being operable over a wide range of drive currents with multiple lumen, color temperature and color rendering options available.”

Featuring a long rated life of 50,000 hours (L70) and a 120° beam angle, the PrevaLED Core Z3 is available in four lumen packages (1100, 2000, 3000 and 5000), four color temperatures (2700K, 3000K, 3500K and 4000K) and two color rendering index options (80 and 90), allowing for further flexibility in luminaire design.  The light engines are compatible with widely available optics, heat sinks, and housing accessories.  When paired with OPTOTRONIC® constant current LED power supplies, these light engines offer superior system flexibility and are covered by a five-year warranty.
