ORBEOS CDW-030: the second generation OLED panel

The OLED panel, CDW-030, is an important step in the further development of the already successful ORBEOS OLED series. In November 2009, OSRAM made history with the ORBEOS OLED series. For the first time, with the launch of the ORBEOS product line, OLED lighting modules were available to a wider public, in industrial quality, with datasheet.

This success story continues with the second generation. This has been further improved in performance and aesthetics. The efficiency has been almost doubled. At 40 lumen per watt, this is now even better than that of conventional halogen lamps. The brightness and service life performance characteristics have also been doubled. At the same time, the aesthetics have been improved with a glossy front and matching back. This was made possible by, amongst other things, further development of thin film technology, which improves several aspects of the OLEDs.

Another real highlight of the second OLED generation is its contact technology for the CDW-030 and SDW-058. Contact pins on the rear of the OLED and matching connectors simplify installation and later replacement in almost every application.

The advantages of OLED technology in summary

  • glare-free, uniform area light source
  • extremely thin and light
  • good color rendering and high quality light with no delay
  • warm light color, giving a friendly light and comforting atmosphere
  • no UV/IR radiation, so they are ideal for lighting sensitive objects
  • mercury-free and RoHS compliant
  • future products can be transparent or flexible
