Dark Lens

Press Release from KHATOD

Following in the wake of innovation, Khatod is proud to unveil DARK LENS , once again a new- concept-product, a first-of-its-kind anti-glare reflector for any Lambertian LED with dome size up to 8mm in diameter, and recommended flux up to 400 lumens.

So far, all the solutions adopted to reduce the glare have based on mechanical devices or chemical anti-glare coatings. The glare reduction was achieved, but often with a significant decrease in lighting efficiency and flux uniformity.

Advanced research, scientific rigour, great attention to the continuous evolution in LED Technology, have led Khatod to develop an optical solution which definitively eliminates the glare problem without any reduction in lighting efficiency. The product we are proposing is the result of Khatod superior engineering.

DARK LENS is a faceted reflector; collects the light generated by the LED's; reflects the light in a 30° beam while assuring a perfect uniform distribution, thanks to a new high performance coating.

The peculiarity of DARK LENS is the new design concept. This unique device allows the most uniform distribution of the light produced by the LED, and reduces the flux brilliancy. A special reflecting portion created at the bottom of DARK LENS , allows to eliminate completely the glare effect while generating a homogeneous flux which is distributed on the special facets-shaped inner surface. The result is an excellent luminous flux, a high lighting efficiency, a total anti-glare effect.
