Illumitex Inc., developer of high-brightness LEDs and emerging LED technology, released today the lighting industry’s first and only precision beam LED for use in general, architectural and entertainment lighting applications, ranging from high mast street lights to stage and spot lights. Utilizing patented Illumitex technology, the Artavi™ produces a narrow 10 degree beam directly from optics integrated at the emitter level. With more than 90% of the light exiting the lens in the beam, the Artavi™ promises to significantly reduce energy consumption as well as minimize overall system costs when compared to other LEDs that require secondary optics (lenses, reflectors and mechanical shields) in order to achieve a similar directional beam effect.
While leading the industry’s mission to create energy efficient lighting that will speed widespread adoption of LED use, Illumitex technology also improves the quality and functionality of light itself. The Artavi™ utilizes patented Illumitex technology to deliver edge-to-edge uniformity of light—both in terms of color and illuminance—directly to the intended surface while the Artavi™ beam’s sharp cut-offs allow light to be positioned exactly where needed. The Artavi™ has an IP66 rating to protect against humidity and water.
