Innovations that light the way forward.
Halogen lamps have conquered the world in only a short time. There are good reasons for this. They include the quality of light, the directability of the light and the "freedom of expression" that this offers. In particular, the innovative products developed and used by OSRAM have helped to guide developments in halogen light along the right lines.
The halogen cycle
You can see the way this works and the benefits it brings in an animated sequence.
In the bulb of a conventional halogen lamp the operating pressure may be as high as 25 bar. The operating pressure of a low-pressure halogen lamp on the other hand is no more than 2.5 bar.
Bulb pinch technology
Bulb pinch technology is a completely new process developed by OSRAM for manufacturing line voltage halogen lamps.
Dichroic reflector lamps are ideal if heat-sensitive objects have to be well lit. Most of the heat produced by the lamp is emitted through the rear of the reflector.
UV filter technology
OSRAM is the first lamp manufacturer to commit fully to UV filter technology. Almost the entire halogen lamp range has been converted to versions with UV filter quartz.
Low-voltage halogen lamps are lamps that are operated at a voltage of 12 V.
Energy Saver technology
OSRAM ENERGY SAVER lamps achieve energy savings of up to 30%. This is made possible by two different technical principles.
