More Information on LED Optics...
Types of LED Optics
Future Electronics offers a vast variety of LED optics.We stock the most common part numbers categorized by parameters such as package type, number of LEDs, radiation pattern and beam type.Our parametric filters will allow you to refine your search results according to the required specifications.
Applications for LED optics include:
High mast lights
Flash lights Etc.
Choosing the right LED Optic:
With the FutureElectronics.com parametric search you can easily filter the results to match your requirements.Typical specifications to look for are:
Types of Optics:
Plain lenses, Fresnel lenses, TIR lenses (Total Internal Reflection)
Singles lenses versus multi-lens arrays (multi LED optics)
Key metrics used when discussing optics:
Full Width Half Maximum; the solid angle at which the light reaches half of its maximum intensity
How much light passes through the optic.
How directive the optic is.
Higher Cd/lm = narrower beam
Distribution Type, such as Type I, Type II, Type III, Type IV and Type V
Benefits of using standard optics:
