Luminaire blends LEDs and OLEDs

May 09, 2016 // By Julien Happich
Acuity Brands (Atlanta, GA) has released the Olessence luminaires by Peerless, a high-performance architectural linear suspended lighting solution for commercial and professional office spaces. The new luminaires balance OLED and LED lighting technologies to maximize beauty and performance in lighting while optimizing energy savings and cost.

Olessence luminaires feature Duet SSL Technology, a design concept from Acuity Brands that optimizes the performance of OLED and LED light sources in a single luminaire. Designed with a 184 x 13-mm profile, the contemporary luminaire combines the OLEDs for their soft and calm diffused lighting (in direct-view downlight) with the LEDs' high-lumen performance and precise optical control for the up-light distribution and as the primary source of ambient illumination.

It relies on proprietary injection moulded optics for the LED up-light. Other features include an optional dual-circuit switching for independent dimming of direct and indirect light outputs and flicker-free dimming-to-dark, powered by a remote eldoLED driver.

The luminaire comes in LED lumen packages with three available CCT options (3000K, 3500K and 4000K) in 80+ and 90+ CRI options. It comes in 101-, 152- and 203-mm sections, available in white, black or painted aluminium.
