Developed by Osram, one of the largest lamp manufacturers in the world, the Planon is capable of displaying high quality bright pictures with wide viewing and illumination angles and constant light emission from centre to edge.
“With specific advantages, including high luminescence, independence from ambient temperature and long life, the Planon is the ideal backlight for innovative industrial and commercial applications,” said H Billmayer, Managing Director, Osram, Middle East.
“Its two dimensional body can be compared to a tile. Thanks to its specific shape and unique constant high illuminating performance, it opens up new construction and application possibilities for the lighting industry.”
Osram, who see a bright future for environmentally friendly and energy saving lamps in the region, will also introduce their Endura range of fluorescent lights at Middle East Electricity 2003.
“These lights operate on a different principle to conventional fluorescent lamps. Discharge takes place in a closed ring, with no beginning and no end. Energy is injected from the outside by magnetic fields, which lead to an extremely long service life,” said Billmayer.
Organised by IIR Exhibitions, Middle East Electricity 2003 will be held at the Dubai International Exhibition Centre, from January 19-21. To date, over 90% of exhibitor space has been contracted for the first annual showing of the event that will include national pavilions from Germany, the UK, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Taiwan, and France and country groups from Turkey, Iran and South Africa.
Supported by the UAE Ministry of Electricity and Water and the Federal Electricity and Water Authority, it will, for the first time, feature a dedicated Lighting Arena, focusing on the rapidly growing lighting sector and a dedicated area for new and renewable energy.
Meanwhile, alongside the exhibition, IIR will stage a high level industry summit at which experts from the World Energy Council, US, UK and the Middle East will address key energy questions including: regional investment requirements; energy restructuring and privatisation; deregulation of the energy market; subsidy issues and the development of price driven customer tariffs; co-generation and the potential of renewable energy in the region.
