Khatod announces Color Mixing Optics that produce narrow beams and excellent RGBW mixing

June 20, 2013
Date Announced: 20 Jun 2013 Khatod is proud to unveil its newest Color Mixing Optics able to perform very narrow beams, while providing excellent RGBW color mixing of the light coming from the LED sources.These latest solutions for color mixing are the result of our experienced optical and mechanical engineering as well as the employment of High-Tech software and equipments for R&D, Production and Quality Control. Our proven capability in moulds fabrication and the use of superior quality polymers, specific for optical mechanical and technical properties, are further fundamental aspects for our success in delivering the best solution to lighting designers using the color-mixing-LED technology of latest generation in their fixtures.The newest RGBW Color Mixing Lenses from Khatod – available in Ø 35 mm and Ø 45 mm - allow to perform a full range of beam angles, from an extraordinary 8° ultra-narrow beam up to 40° wide beam.Also, they can be equipped with a special optical accessory, a Moving Lenslet Array (MLA), to be mounted on top of the lens. The use of the lens with the MLA allows ZOOM and AUTOFOCUS applications. By sliding the MLA on top of the lens, you can vary the beam angles in a range from 12° to 50° by preserving a perfect color mixing and a high optical efficiency over 90% in the full range of the beam angles.The MLA and the lens fit perfectly as they have the same diameter. The beam angles vary from the narrow configuration when the device is nearly in contact with the lens, to the wider configurations when the MLA is made sliding over the lens. What makes these lenses superior is the great color mixing performance which exceeds any expectations. The red, green, blue and white beams produced by the high brightness chips are perfectly mixed and concentrated in a unique light beam of high intensity while delivering an incomparable uniformity level. Shadows or glare are totally eliminated and the highest in light color mixing is guaranteed. Fit for any applications, they are perfect in architectural lighting: entertainment & decorative, border/contour, shop windows, halls & entrances, lamps , etc.General Characteristics :Lens material : Optical Grade PMMAOperating temperature range : -40° C / +90° CStorage temperature range : -40° C / +90° CFeatures :• RGBW Color Mixing Lenses, available in Ø 35 mm and Ø 45 mm • From extraordinary 8° ultra-narrow beam up to 40° wide beam.• Available with Moving Lenslet Array (MLA), enabling zoom from 12° to 50° beam angle range• Innovative design• High optical efficiency over 90%• Perfect uniform flux• Shadows or glare totally eliminated• Easy fixing onto the PCBTypical Applications :• Architectural Lighting• Stage Lighting• Entertainment & decorative • Shop windows, halls & entrances• Downlights• Flashlights• Border/contour• Lamps , etc.About Khatod Optoelectronic:Khatod products leverage nearly three decades of hands-on experience with the toughest challenges in making lenses in a wide range of applications and environments.
