Osram’s Planon lamp systems are new light sources with high output and extremely uniform luminance in a flat panel design. The Planon lamp is a flat, dimmable, mercury-free discharge light source. Its sleek shape and high luminance makes it the perfect solution for liquid crystal displays (LCD) and backlight applications, yielding up to twice the maintained output of conventional and cold cathode fluorescent lamp (CCFL) technologies.
Producing instant full light output across a wide range of temperatures, Planon far exceeds the performance capabilities of many mercury-containing fluorescent lamps. Its extremely long lamp life is unaffected by rapid switching cycles, making Planon the ideal solution for effect lighting or other special-purpose general lighting application strategies.
