PRO-Flex LED Dimming Drivers From OSRAM SYLVANIA Wins Innovation Award at LIGHTFAIR 2012
Recognized by Industry Peers for State-of-the-Art EMerge Registered LED Driver Technology

Las Vegas, NV (May 9, 2012) – North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA is pleased to announce that the PRO-Flex LED Drivers have been selected as a winner of the prestigious Innovation Award in the Ballasts, Transformers and LED Drivers Category at LIGHTFAIR 2012. The award reinforces the company’s commitment to leading the market in the development and delivery of cutting edge lighting technologies.

The PRO-Flex family of constant current LED dimming drivers, designed to adapt LED luminaires for use in EMerge Alliance-compliant low voltage ceiling grids supplying 24Vdc power. The new PRO-Flex drivers feature the flexibility of programmable current levels and three different user interfaces - enOCEAN Wireless; 0-10Volt wired; and DALI wired – ensuring the most appropriate dimming control solution for nearly any LED luminaire type in retail, education, office, restaurant and other commercial installations.

A flexible solution for OEMs, the new LED drivers from OSRAM SYLVANIA eliminate the need to stock multiple driver types at multiple current outputs because all three PRO-Flex models feature fully programmable currents ranging from 300mA through 1500mA, allowing luminaire manufacturers to stock only a few drivers while still fulfilling nearly any electrical requirement.

“We’re thrilled and honored that our PRO-Flex LED Drivers were selected to win an Innovation Award!” said Doug Paulin, Product Marketing Manager, OSRAM SYLVANIA. “Being recognized for the third year in a row by our industry peers is a testament to our dedication to innovative products and solutions at OSRAM SYLVANIA.”

The LIGHTFAIR Innovation Awards recognize excellence in new lighting products and technology introduced in the past twelve months. The recognition of the PRO-Flex LED Drivers in the category of Ballasts, Transformers and LED Drivers is the third Innovation Award received by OSRAM SYLVANIA in the category. In 2011, the OSRAM SYLVANIA QUICKTRONIC QTO Outdoor Dimming Ballast won an Innovation Award in the category while the QUICKTRONIC QHE T5HO/SS System was recognized in 2010.

Judged by an independent panel of renowned lighting professionals, the LIGHTFAIR Innovation Awards is one of the highest industry honors.
