OSRAM has revealed its new Synios P2720 converted red (CR) LED.
An OSRAM spokesperson said: “The Synios P2720 CR from Osram provides many benefits to manufacturers of rear combination lamps, such as enabling compact rear fog lamp designs.
“The trend for both headlamps and rear combination lamps is clear: the more compact and efficient the components used, the better.
“While the installation space required decreases, the design options available to manufacturers greatly increases.
“The new LED Synios P2720 CR LED addresses this trend of miniaturization.
“In spite of its small dimensions, it offers outstanding performance values in applications.”
One of the main issues with monochromatic LEDs for rear fog applications is the enormous loss of brightness of about 50 per cent in operating temperatures of 60° – 70° C, according to OSRAM.
Until now, rear lamp manufacturers had to compensate for this physically induced gap by increasing the number of LEDs, which also increased the space requirements.
Now the new, conversion-based Synios P2720 CR, can dramatically reduce this loss of brightness to only around 10 percent.
Fewer LEDs means the required heat sink can be very compact, saving additional space and weight.
Rear lamp manufacturers can choose between two different chip sizes (0.5 mm² or 1 mm²), depending on the design of the application.
