Light engine operating lifetime Robustness, Reliability, Longevity in Maintenance-free lighting 11 Nov 2020

Estimates of the operational lifetimes of solid-state light sources ranging from 10,000–50,000 hours of light output are frequently cited in research and commercial publications. However these estimates are often derived from performance data for single light emitting diodes (LEDs) and are not necessarily representative of integrated light engines in typical working environments. This white paper provides operating lifetime estimates for Lumencor’s solid-state light engines based on analysis of service history data.

Realistic Optical System Tolerancing: A Practical Example 28 Jan

Ruda-Cardinal

While lens design software can assist with tolerancing, complex and/or critical optical systems require expertise beyond the software’s basic functionality. We represent tolerancing of optical systems as close to reality as possible by utilizing the most advanced tolerancing tools both built into lens design software and of our own creation
