LED Engin Announces Narrow Beam Lens and Emitter Combinations that Cut Fixture Size by more than 50%

LED Engin, Inc., a leader in high lumen density LED products, announces the introduction of two narrow-angle TIR (Total Internal Reflection) high efficiency lenses for the company’s high flux LuxiGen LZC- and LZP- series emitters. The proprietary 8-degree narrow spot lens and 15-degree spot lens are designed for use with LED Engin’s compact, high flux density LZC (12-die) and LZP (24-die) LuxiGen emitters. This combination enables an array of high brightness LEDs to be replaced by a single LED emitter and lens, cutting fixture size by at least 50% and delivering superior beam control.

The TIR lenses collimate the LED light into efficient, well-controlled beams that maximize the usable lumens in the target area. They provide the throw or distance required for many new lighting applications, and do so with a smooth beam of uniform intensity that minimizes glare and creates crisp, single shadows.

The 8-degree narrow spot lens, coupled with the LZC 12-die, multi-color RGB, RGBA or RGBW emitters, provides effective in-source color mixing for dynamic color in entertainment and architectural lighting applications. When used with white LZC or LZP series emitters, the combination can replace 35W metal halide lamps in downlighting and bay lighting applications with an efficient, cool-running unit that has a service life of 50,000 hours.

On-axis efficiencies are 12cd/lm for the 8-degree lens plus LZC emitter and 8cd/lm for the 15-degree lens and LZP emitter. Up to 36,800cd center-beam candle power can be produced by a single lens/emitter combination.

The lenses, which are made from optical-grade polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) and UL-rated, are available with holders that mount easily to LED Engin’s LuxiGen metal core printed circuit boards (MCPCBs).

The new LuxiGen lenses are available now from LED Engin and its distributors. IES (Illuminating Engineering Society photometric data) files are available upon request and more information is available at http://www.ledengin.com/products/lenses.

About LED Engin, Inc:
LED Engin, based in California’s Silicon Valley, specializes in ultra-bright, ultra-compact solid state lighting solutions that allow designers and engineers the freedom to create uncompromised yet energy efficient lighting experiences. Their LuxiGen™ Platform - an emitter and lens combination or integration module solution, delivers superior flexibility in light output, ranging from 3W to 90W, a wide spectrum of available colors, including whites, multi-color and UV, and the ability to deliver upwards of 5,000 high quality lumens to a target. The small size combined with powerful output allows for a previously unobtainable freedom of design wherever high flux density, directional light is required.
LED Engin products are sold directly through LED Engin sales channels and its distributors. They are available for immediate sampling. For additional information, or to find a sales representative, please visit: www.LEDEngin.com.
