Printed linear tilt lens increases flexibility for outdoor ground-spot

The challenge

Create a Lens System for Paviom’s Award Winning in-ground ‘LoFoot’ LED fixture that enables easy project customization by iterating the symmetrical light beam into a directed asymmetrical one, without the need for extraordinary upfront investments in tooling or inventory.

Problem definition

From its origin, the beam of the powerful LoFoot uplighter has a symmetrical light beam radiation, which is perfect for the upwards illumination of a steep object, but less perfect for directed side lighting. The need for an easy, interchangeable lens to redirect the light rises project by project.

The Solution for this LED fixture

Luxexcel created a 20 degree tilt lens with a linear optical lens structure. The individual prisms of the lens redirect the light output from the AR111 LED light source (reflector). The lens is contour-cut by laser  into a round shaped version to enable a perfect mounting and fit into the lighting fixture.
