Danvers, Mass. – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA was recognized for innovation across the company’s solid state lighting (SSL) portfolio by winning six Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards (PIA).  With judging and evaluation of products and systems from a distinguished panel of 21 designers and lighting specialists skilled in product evaluation, the SSL PIA program awards manufacturers based on attributes, qualities, functionality and/or performance beyond industry standards.

The following OSRAM SYLVANIA products were honored this year in these categories:

  • SYLVANIA ULTRA SE™ LED Lamp Family – Retrofit/Replacement

  • OSRAM LINEARlight FLEX® Protect UL2108 Listed – Modules & Lights Sources

  • OSRAM OPTOTRONIC® Programmable Constant Current Dimmable LED Power Supplies – Best Component Level Product and Driver

  • OSRAM SYLVANIA 2013/2014 Luminaire Catalog – Market Leadership for Education

  • OSRAM PrevaLED® Cube LED Light Engine – Modules & Lights Sources

“The Architectural SSL Product Innovation Awards (PIA) recognizes innovative LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market, while also spotlighting the players behind the components that make up these light sources,” said Jim Crockett, editorial director, Architectural SSL.

“As the integrated lighting expert, OSRAM is shaping the future of light,” said Tim Lesch, senior vice president and general manager – NAFTA Sales, Services & Logistics, OSRAM SYLVANIA.  “Our innovative and tailor-made solutions along the whole spectrum of light create superior value for our customers.”


The ULTRA SE LED lamp family provides incandescent-like dimming characteristics by shifting color temperature from 3000K to 2000K as the lamp dims. The warmer color temperature at dimmed levels allows you to create a warm, comfortable and relaxing environment instantly. Lamps are dimmable down to 10 percent.  Energy usage can be reduced by up to 88 percent over the incandescent lamps they replace, with additional energy savings with dimming to lower light levels. The ULTRA SE family is available in BR40, BR30 and R20, and ideal for downlight applications. The lamps also have high power factor greater than 0.98, providing efficient use of power generated by utilities and high efficacy up to 69 LPW and are covered by a 3-year limited warranty.

OSRAM LINEARlight FLEX Protect LED Modules and UL2108 System

The LINEARlight FLEX Protect LED Modules are flexible IP67 rated white light linear modules and part of a UL2108 low voltage listed system for direct install in end user applications. Ideal for outdoor path and contour, building façade, border and cove lighting, these flexible encapsulated circuit boards with self-adhesive backing allow for easy installation into straight or curved surfaces with a radius as tight as 1.9 inches.  Aluminum mounting track, mounting brackets and clear/diffuse covers are available accessories for quick installation.

The modules come in POWER FLEX for high brightness and Advanced for long linear runs. At 16.7 ft, the POWER FLEX family has a lumen output of 382 to 428 per foot with an efficiency of 66-81 LPW and is available in 3000K, 4000K and 7600K.  The 32.8 ft in the Advanced family has a lumen output of 107 to 119 per foot with an efficiency of 70-78 LPW, and is available in 3000K, 4000K and 7000K.  When paired with an OPTOTRONIC 24VDC 96W or 240W JBX LED power supply and necessary connectors, these modules create a UL2108 Listed System that allows for direct install at the end user application without additional inspections.  

OSRAM OPTOTRONIC Programmable Constant Current Dimmable LED Power Supplies

The OPTOTRONIC programmable dimmable family consists of highly efficient, compact constant current 25W and 40W LED power supplies.  The family is OEM programmable between the range of 350 - 1250 mA for the 25W and 400 - 1400 mA for the 40W with a 1 mA resolution. The power supplies are available with specification grade linear dimming to 1 or 10 percent on 0-10V.  These class 2 power supplies come in familiar J-style and F-style housings simplifying installation into a variety of luminaires.  One click programming through the use of the OPTOTRONIC programming tool and optional programming nest does not require the power supply to be powered up or connected to an AC line voltage.  Also OEM programmable is the LED thermal protection function, allowing the power supplies to reduce the output current in case of LED module thermal overload. This feature is customizable by the OEM allowing selection of maximum system temperature to reduce the risk of shortening the life of the LED system. The temperature set point is dependent on the fixture design and it’s potential applications. The programming feature of these power supplies allows 1 item number to replace numerous parts from competitors thereby reducing complexity for our OEM partners.

OSRAM PrevaLED CUBE LED light engine

Ideal for use in downlight fixtures, the PrevaLED CUBE LED light engine provides fixture manufacturers a flexible, cost-effective light engine that delivers high-quality illumination and industry-leading system efficacy for their customers.  With its common form factor, the PrevaLED CUBE is designed to fit into many existing fixtures and is compatible with widely available accessories, helping fixture manufacturers reduce their time to market and costs. The new OSRAM light engine also features a lower profile design, enabling it to be used in surface mount and wall wash fixtures.  The PrevaLED CUBE offers steady state efficacy averaging more than 94 lumens per watt (LPW) across the product family and up to 120 LPW. This can easily enable fixture efficiencies of over 75 LPW, meeting the standards for a DesignLight Consortium (DLC) listing.  Fixtures that meet these requirements also qualify for utility rebates that OEMs can pass on to their customers.  

OSRAM SYLVANIA 2013/2014 SSL Luminaire Catalog

The 2013/2014 SSL Luminaire Catalog for indoor, outdoor and specialty luminaires was designed to meet the needs of lighting specifiers, architects and facility managers, making it simpler for them to choose the right luminaire for their lighting projects based on luminaire design features, specifications and application performance.  The "How to Specify" Section simplifies specification creation when used in conjunction with the newly formatted luminaire cut sheets available online.  Unique to the luminaire catalog are "Reference design examples in the Application Information section."  These reference designs provide a snap shot of illuminatioin levels for various ceiling heights for indoor applications and lighting power density for a given room size or outdoor area.  The catalog includes SSL luminaires, SSL luminaire retrofits and UL2108 listed Flexible SSL systems that do not require a fixture to install.
