ZORYA – Omnidirectional Retrofit Lenses from LEDiL

ZORYA is a unique LED optics design from LEDiL with around 340-degrees of light distribution. The whole lens is covered in small “spikes” that are basically individual optics in themselves. This innovative design – unlike anything seen before in LED optics – can harness all the light from any size LED and transform it into omnidirectional lighting that mimics a traditional light bulb beam pattern.

The bigger version of ZORYA-SC has a 55mm diameter and is made from optical grade silicone. High temperature resistance and an optical design that is adaptable to a wide range of different COBs allows compatibility with 6mm to 22mm diameter LES sizes. The ZORYA-MINI is a PC version of the same design with a 24mm diameter. Being that small doesn’t mean a lack in power or lumen output, vice versa. ZORYA-MINI supports LEDs up to 7070 size packages and can provide wide and radiant light distribution from a size that can be attached to E12 retrofit designs.

From a performance point of view these optics are state of the art. One ZORYA-SC is compatible with COBs capable of a luminous flux of over 10 000 lumens and the substantial amount of backlight in an efficient package takes your LED luminaires to a totally different level. This not only means all retrofit luminaires can now be fitted with efficient LEDs, but also new applications where traditional light bulbs could not be used – or were much more complicated to manufacture. ZORYA optics don’t necessarily need a separate dome structure on top and the bigger silicone version can be easily adapted for applications that require ingress protection. Made from PC optic, ZORYA-MINI is tougher than glass. With excellent color mixing capabilities and full compatibility with RGB LEDs, ZORYA-SC is also compatible with color mixing and tunable white light applications.

ZORYA-SC is installed using a twist and lock holder system allowing the lenses to be used with solderless connectors and provide quick and reliable fastening. The smaller ZORYA-MINI can be implemented as is to luminaire designs, or fastened with pre-assembled tape that LEDiL provides.

In the end these spiky looking incandescent optics can create uniform, energy efficient lighting capable of meeting EnergyStar standards. Both ZORYAs highlight LEDiL´s expertise in optical design and are an example of how the latest molding technologies can be used to create the lighting of the future. These incandescent optics are a perfect upgrade for retrofit installations and main applications being in decorative outdoor and indoor lighting.
