    The Company OMS Aims at Becoming the Leader in the Area of Nanotechnologies

     

    Dojč, 17th October 2013 

    The independent research department of the company OMS aimed at solving the area of light optics is recording the first results in the area of nanotechnology development. In partnership with a nanotechnology company from the foreign country develops and tests samples of exceptionally high precision optics typified by a faultless accuracy of detail expressed in tens of nanometres. This technology enables one to check and direct the luminous flux of the luminaire with a high degree of accuracy and to create effects which the current standard technology does not permit (img. Nanostructure Registry Machine). The optics on the basis of nanotechnologies is able to achieve an accurate directing of the luminous flux, its splitting up into numerous angles and a reduction or vice versa in its concentration. In this respect the optics based on nanotechnologies is able to replace the standard technologies to the full extent and it can also achieve such parameters that the standard technologies would not allow. This type of optics provides the designers of the company with entirely new opportunities for designing a new generation of luminaires.

  • Energy-saving LED luminaires in stores

    Energy-saving LED luminaires in stores

    Energy-saving LED luminaires in stores

    OMS uses Osram LEDs in its newest luminaire - STARTRACK from OMS’ ELITE portfolio.

    The right lighting in stores has a very significant impact on how shoppers perceive merchandise. When staged with proper lighting, exhibits in galleries and at trade fairs stand out from the competition.

    With Startrack from OMS, OSRAM Opto Semiconductors equips a luminaire for the retail sector using high-performance Golden Dragon Plus LED. These LEDs have impressive specifications and are of small size. In retail outlets as well as numerous other sectors, they enable merchandise and exhibits to be viewed in the right light.

    For the Startrack luminaire, OMS uses the Golden Dragon LED in various white tones. Thus the light colour can be selected easily depending on the type of product or exhibit. With its small dimensions, the Golden Dragon Plus can be easily incorporated in the luminaire and offers luminaire designers a great deal of flexibility and creative scope. Their long life of over 50,000 hours (depending on operating conditions) and superior efficiency ensure prolonged usage and therefore, reduced payback period.

    The Startrack has been designed to be incorporated in existing aluminium rails. The luminaire is suitable for virtually any store lighting application. It can be individually adjusted so the light direction can be flexibly modified. Eight Golden Dragon LEDs per luminaire (10W input) replace a 75W halogen lamp. As LEDs do not emit heat generated by light, no harm can be done to sensitive products such as food or valuable exhibits.

    „For luminaire producers like OMS, LEDs are a technology we really want to shape. Today, we are certain that LEDs are fundamentally changing luminaire design and enable new applications such as integration in ceilings and furniture."

    Martin Bílek, OMS.

    Research and Industry - Partnership

     

    Partnerships between academic institutions and commercial companies deliver extraordinary results.

    The academic and commercial sectors were perceived as incompatible in Slovakia, until now. Today these two sectors have a much closer relationship than anyone could have imagined. The public/private sector partnership between Slovak University’s Institute of Electronics and Photonics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology and OMS is proof positive that these partnerships produce extraordinary results. 

    1On July 10th, 2012, OMS opened a new showroom at its headquarters in Dojč, near Senica.

    OMS is an industry leader in lighting fixture production and as a supplier of complex lighting solutions to customers in 122 countries worldwide. As one of just a few companies in this industrial line of business, it has its own research and development department. In an effort to continually achieve better results and offer customers the most modern technological solutions, it proposed a collaboration with Slovak University’s Institute of Electronics and Photonics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology. The offer received a positive response and last October, the partners created the basis for their collaboration – a successful project called LED Lab.

    The main goals of this cooperation were to: a) nurture bright academic minds with high technical levels of education to focus on designing the management and realisation of new LED lights b) develop high-quality products at reasonable prices with functionality that surpass the competition c) submit patents resulting from research and development d) develop organic LED and lighting fixtures.

    The LED Lab, the showcase of the collaboration between these industrial and academic partners, is building the foundation for educating the lighting industry’s future specialists and qualified experts. OMS understands the quality of the Lab has a direct impact on the calibre of these future industry leaders. Therefore, OMS has invested in building and purchasing devices for a specialised lab on the university premises aimed at applied research in the area of micro-electronics. The university students will have the opportunity here to learn everything about the technical aspects of lighting, from basic terms through to lighting fixture design and programming lighting systems. They will also deal with the development of electromechanical interfaces, electronic design and/or programming, from planning to implementation. The entire experience is designed to prepare students for the industry.OMS presented the first results of this collaboration at Light+Building 2012, the world’s largest trade fair for lighting and building services technology in Frankfurt am Main. It presented two highly technologically advanced products. The first product was Modul Razzor, a lighting fixture with a moveable light intensity distribution curve without any moveable parts. The second product displayed was the intelligent lighting management system, OMS Central Power Source (CPS). Enabling customers to substantially reduce energy costs, OMS CPS delivers a degree of lighting management system that previously required high installation costs. Among its most notable features, the CPS system can be implemented into existing wiring. 

    A non-traditional combination of "aesthetics, design and modern technology." MODUL Razzor, with full LED backlighting, presents the latest generation of the LED light sources.

    OMS and Slovak University’s Institute of Electronics and Photonics at the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology are currently working on five joint projects. One example is their collaboration on the development of the integrating sphere, a measuring device that is available on the market for approximately 80,000 EUR. The goal of the project is to manufacture a device of a higher quality for a substantially lower price (5,000 EUR) under the proviso of maintaining the quality and accuracy of the measurements. They are also working on optimising OMS’ goniophotometer device. The goal of the project is to develop a smaller scale version that would measure LED light sources and their characteristics with secondary optics of a refractor type (lens). They are also continuing development of an Elite version of the OMS Central Power Source (CPS) system, intended for the most demanding customers. 

    The cooperation between the academic sector and OMS is a direct connection to the industry and also means a certain rate of dynamics in the framework of R&D. "The applied commerial research is, compared to basic research, substantially more dynamic, with a strong focus on achieving the final output," says Ing. Jozef Martaus, PhD., OMS, s. r.o.

    The partnership between OMS and the Slovak University of Technology is endorsed by the Slovak Research and Development Agency under the project scheme, “Centre of Collaboration for the Transfer of Innovative Technologies from Research to Industry”. The financial model consists of a financial contribution from the industry partner, OMS, and a matching financial contribution from the Slovak Research and Development Agency. To date, OMS has invested 115,000 EUR into its framework and will invest an additional 120,000 EUR by the end of this year.

    OMS’ lighting solution decreases energy consumption for one of lighing industry’s market leaders by 50 % 

    Though German Osram is one of the world’s leading lamp producers, the lighting solution for the cafeteria in its Regensburg headquarters was handed over to Slovak luminaire producer OMS. The fastest growing player in the global lighting industry did not let down its long-term business partner. The custom-made solution has not only reduced energy requirements by half but also provided full lighting control, with higher light output and better colour rendering index.

    “This is a logical continuation of a long-term cooperation,” says Ales Markytan from Osram Opto Semicondictors. The strong bond between the German lamp and component producer and the Slovak luminaire manufacturer was forged in the 90s. Osram has become a longtime lamp provider for OMS and the two cooperate closely in the research and development of lighting solutions. For these reasons, Osram chose OMS to provide the illumination solution for its employee cafeteria - where Osram staff replenish their stamina during the workday.

    The Osram cafeteria lighting solution used a special optical system called a microprismatic diffuser, which provides homogenous lighting without glare. Every luminaire is equipped with a dimmable LED driver that has full control through the DALI interface. Sufficient illumination together with a high colour rendering index provide a feeling and atmosphere of relaxation.

    “The active lighting management and more efficient light sources have decreased energy consumption in the space by half,” said Mr. Markytan. He has high praise for OMS’ work and confirms the Regensburg cooperation will not be their last. Both companies are already working together on the “Brilliant Mix” project, which aims to provide higher quality lighting and the possibility to tune the light colour.

    OMS is expanding to India

     

    OMS has chosen a strong local partner Eon Electric to successfully enter the Indian lighting market.

    India and Asia are generally considered ‘foreign territory’ by most people from Central Europe yet the market potential is undeniable. In order to successfully compete with strong domestic producers, OMS has decided to join forces with a strong local partner and together they have established a joint-venture, Luxtra Lighting.

    „Our goal is to overcome competitors with our high quality product and unmatched lighting industry knowledge,” said Roman Krška, commercial director for OMS. “The plan is to fully realize India’s market potentia. The decision to enter the Indian market has also been fostered by the enormous technological advances the country is experiencing."

    One of the main goals in India is also to open a research and development division to leverage the talent of local universities. OMS does not enter a new market without first having knowledge of that market. For this reason, Luxtra Lighting was established with leading local electrical producer, Eon Electric. This new company will focus on the Asian markets. “The fact that we share common values such as transparency, flexibility and a commitment to innovation meant the negotiations went along quickly,” said Vladimír Levársky, founder and CEO of OMSEon Electric is one of the most important producers of high-tech electrical products for distribution, protection, control and conservation of electrical energy in India. With more than 50 years of tradition, it employs 3,000 people at the time. Luxtra Lighting is a joint venture of both OMS and Eon Electric focused on producing high quality light fixtures in India and other Asian countries.

    Now you have an opportunity to try OMS luminaires in an interactive virtual showroom.

    This virtual showroom displays advanced lighting technologies and modern luminaire design like those found in our actual showroom, which is located at OMS company headquarters in Dojč. Compared to standard virtual exhibitions, the OMS virtual showroom incorporates a level of functionality and interactivity that is second to none. Not only do visitors have an opportunity to see the luminaires in the showroom, but to control each of them.

     

    More than 70 luminaires from the Advanced and Elite product lines are divided into 11 groups based on the types installed in the modern showroom space. The virtual showroom is based on six main panoramic views, four of which represent various camera positions in the room while the other two illustrate the functions of the Modul Eye luminaire control and LED strip colour variations. Each view was recorded with the HDR technique featuring a dynamic exposure range. As such, to achieve the luminaire control functionality, more than 100 snapshots were required to create six panoramic images. The presentation works on virtually all screens with a common resolution; from the PC to lower-resolution tablets and smartphones with a minimum resolution of 800x480 pixels. It is compatible with the Android and iOS operating systems.

    What does the showroom offer visitors? After a short welcome, visitors are given simple instructions that introduce the individual functions. Help can be accessed at anytime throughout the presentation. Visitors are encouraged to take full advantage of the opportunities to play with light. They can switch every luminaire on and off, try dimming, select direct and indirect illumination and choose colour variations through the RGB mix. A virtual iPad controls all luminaires in addition to two touch panels; one for displaying the control environment of the Becrux luminaire and the other, for testing the Modul Eye fixture, with direct and indirect lighting options. The RGB touch panel allows visitors to test the fun and sophisticated light colour scale on the Downlight Vision luminaire. The panel also allows the continuous passing through of colour variants via the RGB mix buttons as well as the regulation of the light’s saturation and brightness. Memory buttons can be used to save favourite combinations 

    Visitors can learn about each light through additional controls. For example, hovering over a luminaire with the mouse will display its name. Clicking the camera will zoom in on the light while revealing the panel with additional information on the luminaire. For those wanting more detailed data on the luminaire, clicking on the “datasheet” button will lead them to the luminaire’s product section on the website. The showroom also allows visitors to control the LED strips through the RGB mix functions, featuring nine colour options as well as adjustable colour combinations and colour programmes. Visitors also get helpful tips; visible on the bottom part of the screen, while navigating through the showroom. We invite you to experience our unique virtual showroom and explore our portfolio of luminaires, ‘hands-on’.

    LED Lab and New Research Projects of Lighting Presented to General Public

     

    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.
