Mentor presents a new optical concept "M-LEDlight illumination optics"

Mentor presents a new optical concept "M-LEDlight illumination optics"

The concept module M-LEDlight illumination optics is based on a TIR collimator (Total Internal Reflection) as a base body and exchangeable facet designs for various beam properties. The company develops, simulates, tests and produces in house - the result is custom-made light engines for complex lighting solutions with targeted illumination.

One of the biggest core competencies of Mentor is the virtual light development and product visualisation of customer specific LED lighting systems and lighting modules. After defining the lighting task (light strength, distance of the lamp to the illumination area, beam angle), the development classically starts with the selection of the correct LED's as a light source and the matching optical concept. A high efficiency and homogenous light distribution thus set the strict framework conditions for the optical design. After the technical light development, simulation and the various test procedures, Mentor finishes the process with its own tool construction, production and assembly.

The lighting modules with LED's and designs precisely coordinated to one another are used in the most varied applications: as attractive illumination for walls or building facades (wallwashers) or for spotlighting during the presentation of goods, on sales counters and as atmospheric lighting in meeting and conference rooms.

  • A walk on the Planck curve: M-LEDlight tunable white concept from Mentor

    Is it important in your application that the color temperature (CCT) of the concept module is continuously adjustable and remains at a consistently high color rendition index (CRI)? By controlling three different LEDs, the CCT is configured along the Planck curve in the area from 2700K to 6500K. This new lighting concept is recently launched by Mentor.
