Licross: more than light


The new trunking system Licross from Osram enables applications far exceeding just light

With the new Licross trunking system, Osram Lighting Solutions provides a flexible and future-capable basis for many applications in industry and retail. The system forms the backbone for all lighting tasks and also offers many highly useful features above and beyond the light thanks to an extensive portfolio of sensors, the e:cue Sympholight light control software and cloud-based data management.

As a holistic lighting solution, Licross supports modern industrial companies to increase their operational efficiency and optimise production processes.

The system provides you with an overview of resources such as employees, energy and systems and you can also identify potential for optimisation and immediately trigger measures for improvements. Sensors can be integrated into the trunking system at any time, for example for daylight-dependent or motion-dependent light control, monitoring of ambient conditions (e.g. temperature and humidity) and hall utilisation. In combination with the cloud-based Symphograph data management system, energy consumption data and maintenance status data (for predictive maintenance) of the lighting installation can be recorded, analysed and visualised, as well as information about ambient conditions and movement- and utilisation profiles within a hall (heat mapping). Symphograph runs on Osram's new Lightelligence cloud platform and uses the services specifically developed for the lighting industry.

The new trunking system features a functional design and also scores with high levels of flexibility and investment safety. It can also be modified at any time to changes in room use and can be expanded with additional sensors. The robust range of luminaires is available up to a protection rating of IP64 and offers many light inserts with new lighting technologies for all possible industrial and retail applications. The tunable white version for example enables colour temperature and light intensity to simulate the course of daylight, thereby activating the biorhythm of employees. Such Human Centric Lighting solutions support the concentration and performance capacity of workers and can therefore also improve levels of productivity at the workplace.

Einstone transmitter units (intelligent beacons for location-based services) can be integrated to e.g. support the retail trade in understanding customer routes and display merchandise and advertising campaigns in eye-catching ways. Dealers can also communicate with customers via mobile end devices to attract their attention to special offers for example.

These forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as 'expect', 'want', 'anticipate', 'intend', 'plan', 'believe', 'seek', 'estimate', 'will', and 'predict'. Such statements are based on current expectations and certain assumptions made by OSRAM's management, so they are subject to various risks and uncertainties. A wide range of factors, many of which are beyond OSRAM's control, have an influence on the business activities, success, business strategy, and results of OSRAM. These factors may cause the actual results, success, and performance of OSRAM to differ significantly from those expressly or implicitly communicated in the forward-looking statements or from those that are expected on the basis of past trends. In particular, these factors include, but are not limited to, the circumstances described in the report on risks and opportunities contained in the annual report of the OSRAM Licht Group. If one or more of these risks or uncertainties materializes, or should the underlying assumptions prove incorrect, the actual results, performance, and success of OSRAM may differ significantly from those described in forward-looking statements as being expected, anticipated, intended, planned, believed, sought, estimated, or projected. OSRAM assumes no obligation, nor does it intend, to update these forward-looking statements above and beyond the legal requirements or to adjust them in light of unexpected developments. Due to rounding, numbers presented in this and other reports may not add up precisely to the totals provided and percentages may not precisely reflect the absolute figures to which they relate.
