LEDiL Introduces HELENA – Family of New Precision Fresnel Optics

The New Fresnel lens from Ledil – HELENA - is an excellent example of our precision engineering. The molding tool has been engineered to exacting standards using Diamond turning methods. This production method produces some of the highest quality optics in the world and allows Ledil to manufacture to an accuracy of a hundredth of a millimetre, thus giving great control of the light - turning light into lighting the LEDiL way.

Features and Benefits:
•    Precise diamond turned moulded surfaces replicate designed optical shape with exact precision
•    Narrow viewing angle with good efficiency
•    Fresnel type folded prism optical design allows very flat design of the fixture

There are 2 variants - the HELENA-A is designed for a maximum intensity peak, giving good on axis candela values. HELENA-B is manufactured with some pillow texturing on the top side of the lense to widen and smooth the light fractionally.

Specifications:
C12622 HELENA-A
•    Diameter: 72,8 mm
•    Height: 11 mm
•    For Philips Lumileds LUXEON K -series
•    Mould surfaces are diamond turned to replicate original designed geometry to the highest precision standards
•    A-version has clear surfaces and efficient fresnel-design for maximum intensity peak when color shifting is not an issue
•    Precision-moulded from optical grade PMMA – UL94 HB rated material with operating rating -40°C to +100°C
•    Typical applications: Stage lighting, indoor architectural and other applications where maximum intensity of the light source is critical.

C13254_HELENA-B
•    Diameter: 72,8 mm
•    Height: 11 mm
•    For Philips Lumileds LUXEON K -series
•    Pillow surfaced front face for uniform color rendition
•    Precision-moulded from optical grade PMMA – UL94 HB rated material with operating rating -40°C to +100°C
•    Typical applications: Indoor architectural, flat luminaire designs, stage lighting, retail lighting

HELENA is designed to work with Philips Lumileds LUXEON K series LEDs and it produces 22˚ beam angle. The HELENA has been designed to sit very close to light source this allowing compact fixture design.
