Surface-LED technology from Varroc Lighting Systems
Varroc Lighting Systems has introduced Surface-LED, which combines the appearance of organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) with LED light sources. This product is intended to give OEMs expanded freedom to innovate in the design and functionality of exterior lighting.
Varroc Lighting Systems' patented Surface-LED technology uses thin layers of micro-optic filters and conventional LED light sources to achieve the homogeneous appearance generally associated with OLEDs. Each homogenously lit element is 3.5 mm thick, with a luminous intensity that can be scaled from 2,000–13,000 cd/m2. According to the company, Surface-LED elements can be designed and produced in curved and 3D shapes, as well as with multiple colors that enable them to achieve various functions.
"There is a strong desire to implement the appearance of OLED into exterior vehicle lighting, but the cost and technical complications have thus far limited its application to only a few premium vehicles," said Todd Morgan, Senior Vice President of Product Development at Varroc Lighting Systems. "Surface-LED eliminates these hurdles, and even adds a few features that are not yet possible with OLEDs. Customer feedback on Surface-LED has been extremely positive and we can see many new applications already."
Stephane Vedie, CEO of Varroc Lighting Systems, said, "Development of new technologies is a key pillar in our overall strategy at Varroc Lighting Systems, and we take pride in our ability to provide our customers with leading-edge technology at a competitive cost. We are celebrating the fifth anniversary of joining the Varroc Group, and Surface-LED is a perfect example of how becoming part of the Varroc family has enabled us to become a more efficient and forward-looking organization, while continuing our traditions of innovation and quality excellence, rooted in an almost 140-year history."
