Osram simplifies LED assembly with roll-out innovation

A roll-out LED "fluorescent lamp" would save LED luminaire manufacturers time and cost by simplifying LED assembly. Osram developed the Prevaled Linear Flex, an LED light engine that comes in an adjustable 28m roll and can be bonded into the luminaire according to its fluorescent lamp equivalent.

Currently many luminaires are produced in two versions: one with fluorescent lamps and the other featuring LEDs. Although fluorescent lamps are easily mounted to lampholders, LED assembly often requires more effort because several modules need to be screw-fastened. The pliable design of Prevaled Linear Flex offers the option to design organically shaped luminaires with the high efficiency associated with LED technology.

Osram intends to showcase the Prevaled Linear Flex at the 2014 Light+Building trade fair in Hamburg, Germany.
