Khatod introduces zoom and autofocus lenses for SSL applications

Nov. 26, 2013
Date Announced: 26 Nov 2013 Zoom & Autofocus lenses from Khatod enable to vary the beam angles in a range from 11° to 45° The lenses from Khatod deliver the most proper solutions for the ever-evolving requirements from the LED Industry. Our long expertise in the manufacturing of optics that includes also the design and realization of moulds and tooling, have resulted in the widest range of optics specified for LED Lighting applications in the most diverse areas. ZOOM & AUTOFOCUS LENSES from Khatod provide the designers of lighting fixtures with unique optical solutions that far exceed the normal performances of standard lenses. ZOOM & AUTOFOCUS LENSES, available in Ø 45 mm , are single TIR lenses from Khatod Serie s PL1590WI. When equipped with the Moving Lenslet Array (MLA) PL1564, the newest accessory designed by Khatod, the lenses execute ZOOM and AUTOFOCUS performances in a wide range of applications. The MLA and the lens fit perfectly as they are complementary, have the same diameter and Lenslet Array. Place the MLA on the top of the lens and make it slide over the lens along the optical axis: beam angles will vary in a range from 11°, when the MLA is nearly in contact with the lens, up to 45°, when the MLA is made sliding over the lens. The beam variation is obtained along 5 mm distance. These lenses perform an optical efficiency over 90% and preserve a perfect light layout in the full range of the beam angles, also in color mixing applications using multi-color LEDs. The lens and the Moving Lenslet Array coupled together, make up a high precision optical system enabling ZOOM and AUTOFOCUS applications by just sliding the MLA on top of the lens.
