Platinum Dragon LED

Share this on social media:

The Platinum Dragon LED produces white light at 75lm from an operating current of 700mA (30lm/W), making it the brightest single-chip high-power LED in the Dragon series from Osram.

The high-power thin-film chip, better thermal connection between the chip and the package and optimum heat dissipation of the SMT package itself give the Platinum Dragon twice the output compared to the Golden Dragon, but with the same packaging design and dimensions. The greater possible operating current (up to 1A depending on the colour) means that more light can be emitted per unit area.

The Platinum Dragon is suitable for applications that need high brightness in a small space, such as torches, bicycle lamps, traffic lights, medical lamps and flashing blue lights for emergency vehicles.
