The highest quality research and development is critical for innovative companies like OMS
To ensure an environment of continued innovation, OMS has initiated a close cooperation with Slovak University’s Department of Microelectronics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. This follows OMS’ successful cooperation with Slovak University’s Department of industrial Design and Department of Lighting Technology on the launch of the (LED Academy. The 50th anniversary of the Department of Microelectronics foundation also marked the opening of the LED Lab; the culmination of a six month study, “Academic Field and Industry Connection”.
The LED Lab will focus on the following key activities:
- Technical training aimed at developing solutions for design, electronic control and LED luminaires developed using electric and optic methods;
- Development of design methodologies for intelligent lighting management systems and the creation of new functional standards for application-specific LED light sources;
- Support of mutual research and development activities in the field of organic LED (OLED);
- Preparation of academic and professional contributions; their presentation to experts and the general public through professional forums or conferences, magazines and industry reports, or through use of web applications;
- Granting patents in compliance with results in fields of LED and OLED development, research and application;
- Presentation of OMS’ social responsibility for development and education in both the LED Lab and in the Slovak University of Technology.
OMS provided complete lab reconstruction and invested in the purchase of required devices. Our Elite products Indirect Vega LED (versions: Basic, Blue Decorative, RGB Decorative) and Modul Ray Tunable White contribute to the lab’s lighting. The entire lighting system is adapted for teaching the wide range of settings offered by DALI management.
The lab’s entrance area is illuminated with our latest LED Spots (Track Lotus, Track Avior Advanced, Track Cube, and Track Air) which throw light on illustrated posters that explain a lumaire’s composition. Lab visitors can learn about basic lighting terms (luminous flux, white colour light temperature, CRI, etc.) through to the construction/function/structure of luminaires and the practical use of our newest lighting systems (mode of lighting scene, setting of required light temperature, etc.).
