Farnell element14 featured an exclusive launch of Verbatim’s Velve Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) development kit on its stand at this year’s Arc Show held at the Business Design Centre in London between the 29th February and the 1st March.
Farnell element14 is the first distributor to stock the new kit that adds to its already comprehensive range of solid state lighting products, technologies and know-how that includes high power LEDs, LED modules, power supplies and drivers plus thermal management, optical and interconnect solutions.
Supplied in a protective case with easy-to-use software, the Verbatim Velve kit is designed to enable lighting designers to quickly evaluate the benefits and wide range of effects offered by OLED lighting. These include tunable colour (RGB) light, exceptionally fast response times, wide viewing angles, excellent colour reproduction and contrast levels, and high Brightness. OLED technology is highly compatible with the growing demand for extremely thin and lightweight lighting designs. Low power consumption makes it especially useful in battery powered portable applications, and also addresses the environmental demand to maximise efficiency and minimise energy use in fixed applications.
“OLED technology is an exciting and versatile technology that lends itself perfectly to a wide range of lighting applications in different market sectors,” said Paul Ward, Opto Manager, Farnell. “We are excited to be the first distributor to offer the Velve product and were encouraged by the positive responses from lighting designers at the ARC show regarding the demonstration unit’s simplicity, and how it could be easily linked to products from other leading companies in the solid state lighting sector.”
