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.

CONCENTRIC MOUNT FOR OFF-AXIS PARABOLA ALIGNMENT 05 Nov 2020

OAPs have many advantages because they can focus without aberrations; but are notoriously difficult to align. We present a method and mount for accurate alignment to any coordinate system.
