Plus Opto has signed the first agreement to distribute the OLED lighting product range from LG Chem in the UK. The range includes the world’s largest commercially-available panel, measuring 320x320mm, and a flexible OLED panel on plastic substrate with a bend radius of 30mm.
Panels are available in 3000K and 4000K colour temperatures. A CRI of 90, efficacy of 90lm/W and lifetime of up to 40000 hours, make the LG Chem OLED panels suitable for a wide range of applications.
All items are in mass production and samples are available from stock. Also in stock at Plus Opto are DIY kits, comprising one or two 100mm panels complete with cable and connector, touch switch, power supply and a manual, allowing the user to create smart, flexible designs in minutes.
Unlike LED, OLED lighting provides surface illumination, with high CRI, creating a pleasant light source, with no so-called ‘blue hazard’ or UV and no need for heatsinking. Because the light is diffused across the surface, there is no need for additional diffusers or optics, reducing cost, and size of luminaire.
