RITA-A - ASYMMETRIC REFLECTOR FAMILY CONCENTRATES LIGHT PRECISELY WHERE NEEDED
LEDiL announces its latest product addition, the RITA-A reflector family, incorporating a unique optical design that further extends LEDiL’s asymmetric secondary optic expertise for lighting class LEDs. Currently qualified LEDs include Cree’s XLamp® LEDs and Philips Lumileds LUXEON® Rebel and LUXEON® M LEDs. The offset design of this 17.1 mm tall reflector (17.3 mm height with optional pre-installed mounting tape) neatly projects a rectangular beam of energy-efficient LED light with peak intensity in a forward offset 80⁰ from the solid-state light source. The 28.4 mm x 36 mm reflector cup is mounted to a 22 mm base.
LEDiL’s designers envision indoor use of RITA-A mounted to provide task and application lighting, as well as hallway or accent lighting. Lighting of conference room tables and workspaces is also possible with RITA-A. Works of art or museum pieces are easily illuminated without the need to tilt the lamp body and the reflector is easily rotated to provide extra accent where needed. RITA-A can be mounted side-by-side to evenly illuminate long walls with minimal hot-spots or shadowing. Outdoor applications include residential lamps used in urban areas or for lighting stairwells in parking garages.
Reflectors, by nature, are more lightweight than similarly-sized TIR lenses and, since RITA-A is molded in impact resistant polycarbonate, the product is rated for use up to 115 ⁰C and meets UL 94 V-2 flammability rating. RITA-A does not require metallization to achieve high light transmission efficiency and the design enhances thermal flow within the fixture to help regulate thermal efficiency of the lighting system. The adapter base contains integrally molded location pins that locate RITA-A precisely over the LED. Attachment is achieved through the use of an approved secondary adhesive, or with optionally installed mounting tape.
