READING, Ma. - Fraen Optical Manufacturing Group (OMG) announced today the official release of its revolutionary Patent Pending Spot-to-Flood technology that sets a new standard in focusing light in the rapidly growing high powered LED Portable Lighting Market. The Spot-to-Flood technology has been developed for both narrow beam applications requiring a long throw of light, and up close, wide beam viewing, which requires uniform usable light.

• Produces Narrow and Wide Beam Patterns
• Patent Pending
• High efficiency
• Compact size
• Custom versions can be made for most LEDs

"This unique, innovative, patent pending technology is ideal for the Portable Lighting Marketplace" said David Cohen, the Manager of Fraen's Optical Manufacturing Group. "The narrow position produces a beam with tremendous throw, without sacrificing the spill light for many applications, including most flashlight applications. The wide beam position is the most impressive characteristic about this technology. It produces a 65-degree beam, which is very uniform with no visible rings or dark area in the center. We believe Spot-to-Flood technology will change the market by changing the way customers design focusing products".

Typical applications are one requiring adjustable beam patterns, such as:

• Flashlights
• Bicycle lights
• Mining lights and head lights
• Many other applications requiring quick changes between flood and spot patterns
