Osram Opto Semiconductors Launches Osconiq P 2226 LED for Horticultural and Agricultural Applications

Osram Opto Semiconductors has launched the mid-power LED Osconiq P 2226 for horticultural and architectural lighting.
The new Osconiq P 2226 LED marks the commencement of the company’s new product family. In addition to serving the market for horticultural and agricultural lighting, the new Osconiq product line will cover professional applications including area, and linear lighting, as well as high and low bay, and street lighting. Osram Opto designed the LEDs to be used for professional indoor and outdoor lighting applications in which monochromatic colors are needed.

The familiar Duris P products, which are currently used in horticultural and agricultural lighting applications, will be assigned to the new Osconiq line. According to Osram Opto Semiconductors, the Osconiq P 2226 offers an extensive color portfolio and operates through scalable current. Furthermore, the company says that the flexible LED boasts exceptional robustness.

Robust Package and Same Footprint as the Duris P 5 Series

The company points out that the different versions of the P 2226 feature either an epoxy package or a silicone package that both are durable and resistant to corrosion. Osconiq P 226 LEDs feature the same footprints as the previous Duris P 5 series, measuring 2.2 mm x 2.6 mm x 1.25 mm, making them interchangeable with Duris P 5 series LEDs used in existing systems.

The company notes that the LED’s compact size allows integration of more LEDs with the same or with different colors to achieve optimum homogeneous color mixing results. These features make the LEDs perfect for outdoor applications including architectural lighting and also for indoor lighting systems such as those installed in restaurants and hotels.

Broad Range of Colors Available

The Osconiq P 2226 LEDs come in “red” (623 nm), “far-red” (730 nm), “deep blue” (450 nm), “blue” (465 nm), “true green” (525 nm), “yellow” (595 nm) , and “ultra white” with a color rendering index of at least 60. The company says that this mid-power LED delivers outstanding performance. For example, the luminous efficacy is 100 lumens per watt (LPW) for the “red” version, 27 LPW for “blue” and 92 LPW for “true green”.

If required, the LED can be operated with a flexible range of currents. At the binning current of 100 mA provides a competitive luminous flux at outstanding efficacy, and the Osconiq P 2226 can be driven up to 250 mA.

“We are very proud to be able to offer our customers an even better and larger selection of components with the new Osconiq family and to meet their individual LED requirements. We have been able to develop an extremely robust and efficient initial product with the Osconiq P 2226,” said Daniel Doxsee, head of global marketing general lighting at Osram Opto Semiconductors.
