Wide area lighting, such as in parking facilities, walkways, and other non-roadway applications is one of the most
popular uses for solid state lighting today.
In the past, only costly and time consuming custom optics were able to meet the challenges of these applications.
Carclo announces a new and expanded range of ultra-wide angle optics for luminaire designs that require the efficient
lighting of wide areas with even illuminance.
Space is available at the centre of each LED module. This could be
used for an optical sensor to measure the performance of each
module. In the case of any failures, a red LED could be illuminated to
give a visual indication from ground level during daytime, that the
module may need replacing.
Carclo's wide area optics are now available in 120, 130, & 180 degree beam angles for even illumination alongside a special "downlight" version of this optic with enhanced illumination about the center spot.
All four of these new Bubble optics support both small footprint LEDs such as the Lumileds Rebel, Cree
XP-E/XP-C and the Nichia 119, as well as taller high-flux LEDs such as the Seoul P4.
A new version of the Bubble optic, specifically optimized for the Osram Golden Dragon Plus, is also available.
Complete LED Street Lighting Concept
Carclo has been designing and manufacturing optics for high power LEDs since 2002 and currently have the "best in class" wide area optics for both reflectors and refractors.
Efficiencies of light emitted by the LED to light within the illumination area are >90%.
Carclo LED optics are all manufactured from high efficiency polycarbonates that are UL rated and are suitable for
continuous operation up to 120 degrees C.
Carclo LED wide area circular zone optics can achieve +/-10% uniformity about the mean value with practically zero levels of illumination outside the desired illumination area.

For customers who wish to simulate how our optics perform using standard photometric software, such as Dialux or Relux, the Laboratory also makes available photometric data such as 'IES' or 'lumedat' files for all Carclo optics. These are available through Carclo's new OpticSelect tool, as all files available for each LED-optic combination are listed in the details tab.
