LED Secondary Optics Basics

This article first featured in RS DesignSpark. Source

An LED’s primary optic only tends to emit directional light at 120°, but this is not suitable for all applications, and therefore can cause the LED light to lack intensity over distance. To get an LED to produce light in the desired way with a more focused intensity, it is necessary to use a secondary optic to concentrate or diffuse the light emitted.

NEW from Osram Opto Semiconductors – OSCONIQ P3030 High-Power LED

Osram Opto Semiconductors is expanding its portfolio of high-power LEDs for general lighting with the OSCONIQ P3030. Using their many years of experience in the automotive sector, developers transferred their knowledge of combining lead-frame technology with high-performance chips to high-volume products for the general lighting industry. Compared with the ceramic packages commonly used in this field, Osram’s new package provides customers a more robust component with a longer lifetime. The specially developed SMD (Surface Mounted Device) package with silicone lens provides outstanding brightness and efficiency values, as well as a better lumens-per-dollar ratio than ceramic packages used in similar applications.

Customers can choose between two CRI versions (CRI 70 and CRI 80) from the complete CCT range for different applications such as professional indoor or outdoor lighting solutions. While the CRI70 version is available in colour temperatures from 2,700 K to 6,500K, the CRI80 version covers the range from 2,200 – 5,000K.

IHS ‘Ready to Grow’ horticultural LED grow lights named as Innovative New Product Winner at HTA National Plant Show

IHS was recently thrilled to be named the Innovation winner in the New Product Showcase at the National Plant Show (NPS), an annual event run by the Horticultural Trades Association (HTA).

 

IHS, recent HTA members, received the accolade for the ‘Ready to Grow’ range of Florence horticultural LED grow lights. The show took place from 18-19 June 2019 at Stoneleigh Park, Coventry.

It was a great success with many British suppliers to the horticultural market exhibiting their products and services. The show was attended suppliers to the green fingered public such as garden centres, landscape gardeners, etc., who voted IHS’s LED grow lights the most inspiring, Innovative New Product to be showcased at the NPS.

The Florence grow light modules are proving to be a success within the sector having already won the Award for Best Innovation 2018 at the GroSouth Show held last November when the product range was officially launched.

IHS’s Florence range is designed specifically for low and no sunlight applications, maximising growth potential whilst minimising both initial purchase costs and on-going running costs. The Florence unit is no deeper than a standard fluorescent tube fitting, allowing an easy switch to LED lighting without losing growing space.

The modular design enables a smooth, effortless installation, which paired with the standard 100-240V AC mains input, allows for a quick and easy electrical installation, saving further time and cost. LED recipes are available for a wide range of standard horticultural applications, as well as fully customisable solutions.

There are currently eight different standard Florence LED recipes to choose from including; Biomass, Seeding, Flowering, and Fruiting” (available for applications both with or without existing daylight).  Three different lens options are available, per recipe – narrow, wide and oval to direct the light onto the target areas.

IGS R&D manager Raising Money for Muscular Dystrophy UK

Chris Landa-Font, our R&D manager is raising money for a wonderful cause – Muscular Dystrophy UK. Muscular Dystrophy UK is the charity bringing individuals, families and professionals together to beat muscle-wasting conditions. He has vowed to shave his beard off for this cause, as his daughter suffers with this very rare condition. So far Chris and his family have raised a fantastic £1000! Any donations, big or small, will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Chris: “I seem to have grown a rather long beard by mistake.  My son had a great idea that I should shave it off for charity and we all agreed.  My daughter has a very rare condition called Juvenile Dermatomyositis (It’s taken us 3 years to pronounce  this correctly) It’s a very little understood condition that affects 2-3 children per million.”

Message from my daughter: “I would love it if you could help us achieve our goal. The hospitals I go to are great, however a cure would be fandabydosy because I hate the treatment.”
