New lenses and reflectors for LED flashlights feature state-of-the-art technology

Triple Lens from Khatod Optoelectronic

MILAN, Italy - 2007 has led to the creation of several new series of products: LED Reflectors, new Triple Lenses, and the Thetalens. All are examples of Khatod’s prompt reaction to the ever changing market requirements. Our continuous investment in technology and research has led to a 25% improvement in the performance of the existing lens series.

Our designers have developed the new Power LED Reflectors by using software for optical design and simulation as well as special cutting-edge technologies. The LED reflector production requires a long, unique process in order to create a technically superior finish with excellent performance. The finish is obtained by a specific production process of multiple aluminium coatings, special painting treatments that are carried out before and after the metallizing process and the application of special protective chemical coatings. The applications for these reflectors are mostly LED torches, allowing an easy mix of different beams coming from the reflectors themselves. The reflectors are also widely used with chip on board Power LEDs with RGB LED.

The new Triple Lens, created using the SFP (Single Fixing Point) system, merges high optical performance of NJC lenses with the perfect fit of self-tapping screws. This screw fixing system eliminates the hot riveting of the pegs to the PCB allowing a direct coupling onto the LED. The SFP system eliminates the need for a collimator and, as with NJC lenses, eliminates the use of the pegs, allowing an excellent heat dispersion and excellent coupling of lens and LED.

The new Thetalens, available in Narrow, Medium and Wide Beam, complies with AR111. The cover color can be customized to meet the product aesthetic requirements. This new series is manufactured by using our NJC™ Technology, which guarantees a perfect coupling between the lens and LED; eliminating the use of collimator. Thetalens introduces an innovative coupling system between lens and LED, which eliminates production costs by hot riveting the pegs directly to the PCB.
