Osram Opto Semiconductors is thrilled to announce that it has earned the prestigious Architectural SSL Product Innovation Award (PIA) for the Olson Square Hyper Red. This third-generation two-watt LED features improved emission characteristics, higher optical output and impressive corrosion resistance. As a result, plant lighting systems based on the Oslon Square Hyper Red can be extremely economical for commercial greenhouses.

Plants need proper lighting to grow, and the Oslon Square Hyper Red is setting new standards in horticulture lighting. By using LEDs with different wavelengths, commercial growers are now able to control each individual stage of plant growth. With a wavelength of 660 nanometers (nm), the Oslon Square Hyper Red can control the growth of the blossom. Together with the deep blue (450 nm) and far red (730 nm) versions, the Oslon family from Osram Opto Semiconductors perfectly covers the entire spectrum of plant growth.

The Olson Square Hyper Red received the PIA award thanks to its high corrosion resistance, long life and extreme reliability. It features an integrated 2 mm x 2 mm chip that provides improved performance. Leveraging the latest technologies, the Oslon Square Hyper Red has achieved a typical radiant power of 905 milliwatts (mW) with radiant efficacy of 60 percent, at a current of 700 mA and an operating temperature of 25 °C. This represents a significant improvement of 13 percent in terms of radiant power and 25 percent better radiant efficacy compared with the previous Oslon SSL.

The SSL PIA program recognizes innovative LED and solid-state luminaires and fixtures on the market, while also spotlighting the players behind the components that make up these light sources. Based on judging and evaluation by a distinguished panel of 14 designers and lighting specialists, the Oslon Square Hyper Red was honored for its attributes, qualities, functionality and performance beyond industry standards.
