OptiLED introduces color-changing LED modular optical array series

Oct. 18, 2004
Date Announced: 18 Oct 2004 OptiLED unveiled its High Intensity Vorticular Enclosure (HIVE) modular system, a color-changing optical array, at this week's Entertainment Technology Show - LDI 2004 in Las Vegas.The HIVE module is a building block approach to lighting with the capability to rapidly create larger arrays of units for greater lighting intensities and effects. Using a hexagonal design, each HIVE module interconnects and passes power and data to other units in the optical array. With a simple slot-in design between modules, the array can be built to virtually any size or shape. Each HIVE module uses three high-powered LEDs, including red, green and blue, allowing for excellent color mixing and lighting effects. The product uses advanced non-imaging optics from Light Prescription Innovators (LPI) (www.lpi-llc.com). Together with LPI's highly efficient collimating optics, OptiLED uses a tertiary optical system to control the projected light pattern. The lights come with a 16-degree diffuser, and there are factory-fitted options of 25-degree, 50-degree and 80-degree spherical diffusers, and 2x70 degree line or 10x60 degree elliptical diffusers. The first product featuring the HIVE module is the Modular Optical Array S-1, which holds an IP68 rating and can be used in fully submersible applications, such as water fountains and swimming pools, as well as normal dry, open conditions or locations. The S-1 is fully DMX512 controllable, and consumes only 5 W per module.
