    DOJČ, February 15, 2013 – On January 30th, The Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology at The Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava opened its workplace and labs to the general public.

    This event was designed to showcase the faculty’s workplaces, labs and technical equipment to those interested in studying at the faculty. OMS and The Institute of Electronics and Photonics of the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology presented the LED Lab, a joint workplace focused on LED technology development.

     

    During the event, the LED Lab was shown to a large audience who had a unique opportunity to learn about the lab’s activities, directly from its employees. The lab supports research for modern lighting systems, training in the management of new LED systems, development of LED technologies and also presents research findings to both the professional lighting community and the general public. Established in 2011 as a company and university collaboration the LED DesignLab has since expanded with the addition of the SoftLab, a workplace that provides training on programming lighting systems.

    Lab employees as well as representatives from OMS and The Institute of Electronics and Photonics showcased the lab and its technical equipment. Visitors had an opportunity to learn about the development and manufacture of new luminaires, from electronic and thermal design through to the software development required for managing intelligent luminaires. Models of actual, current projects resulting from this private/public sector collaboration were introduced. The presentation of digital lighting management through mobile devices (we are just preparing its launch to the market) was met with a very positive response.

    OMS also unveiled the newest version of its innovative LED luminaire, Modul Razzor during the event. In its final phase of development, Modul Razzor is undergoing testing in the lab. OMS and the Institute of Electronics and Photonics are collaborating on several additional research projects including:

    • Development of a central feeding system, CPS, which centralizes lighting management with a graphical touch interface and wireless control system suitable for retail or presentation areas
    • Design and realisation of a ball integrator, a special device for measuring the light parameters which is set to be completed in the first half of the year
    • The IP IK modul, featuring a design adapted for exteriors and demanding conditions

    During the two-year collaboration between OMS and the university, many innovative products and concepts have been developed and showcased internationally, confirming the importance and effectiveness of public-private partnerships.

    The collaboration between OMS and the Slovak University of Technology on the project framework, “Centre of Collaboration for Transfer of Innovative Technologies from Research to Practice” is realised with support of the Slovak Research and Development Agency’s programme “Support for the Cooperation of Universities and the Slovak Academy of Sciences with Entrepreneurship”(CUSASE).

    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.).

    OMS’ unique lighting roadshow, European Lighting Tour (ELT), begins its Spring tour across Europe.

    OMS’ specially furnished truck, equipped with modern lighting technology and luminaires, will hit the road from March 11th to June 21st. Its first stop will be in Warsaw, Poland for the international lighting exhibition, LIGHT 2013. It will then continue its journey through Poland to the Czech Republic, Austria, France, Belgium, Sweden, Finland and Norway.

    The ELT’s inaugural year proved to be a very successful way to present the company and its philosophy. During a period of six months in 2012, this mobile “lighting academy“ drove more than 25 thousand kilometres. It made 32 stops at trade shows, lighting exhibitions and partner-organised events in 13 European countries. More than 1,600 invited guests and visitors participated in over 100 presentations. The programme presented the latest lighting trends and OMS’ lighting philosophy featuring its Lighting Quality Standard (LQS) and the LQS Composer tool for lighting designers. Last year’s ELT was divided into Autumn and Spring tours where we succeeded in supporting brand awareness among current and prospective customers while bringing our lighting creation concept closer to them.

    This year's tour will introduce the latest trends in lighting design and technology and will continue its first year programme. “Based on last year's overwhelming success, we have decided to resume the European Lighting Tour event this year,” said Roman Krška,Commercial Director for OMS. “We look forward to sharing our newfound knowledge and this year, we will place increased focus on the individual requirements of our customers. Our goals include sharing our knowledge to help customers navigate through the world of lighting, learn from their requirements and provide them with an opportunity for discussion with our experts.”

    OMS has prepared a broad portfolio of communication materials to complement the ELT Spring 2013 tour. From corporate videos to images of OMS’ production technologies and presentations focused on OMS’ unique concepts (LQS, Right Light and LMS), the focus is on educating current and prospective customers on the company and the lighting industry. Demonstrations of new luminaires, presentations of product innovations through 3D projection, TouchPads as well as a virtual visit of a luminaire showroom will form the interactive component of the tour's programme.
