World’s First Flashlight with Luminus’ Revolutionary Round LED
Round LED delivers exceptional beam quality and intensity Las Vegas, Nevada, LightFair, May 9, 2012 – Luminus Devices, Inc., announced today that its newly developed Round Big Chip LED™ has been designed into a state-‐
of-‐the-‐art tactical flashlight by Ruijia Portable Lighting Products Company of Dongguan City, China.
High performance tactical flashlights require exceptional center beam candle power combined with a narrow beam to project a long distance with high intensity. Faceted reflectors are typically used to homogenize the output and transform a square LED into a circular beam. However, faceted reflectors reduce the center beam intensity and diffuse the beam into a larger angle. Luminus’ new round LED enables tactical flashlight manufacturers to optimize the aesthetic quality of the beam without compromising intensity.
“In 2012, Ruijia’s new product, the RJ-‐T9C, uses Luminus’ new SBT-‐70 round LED and makes the flashlight users’ dream come true. It has a small tight beam, high intensity and projects a long distance,” said Jiang Jicong, General Manager of Ruijia Portable Lighting Products Company. “With the round LED we can use a smooth reflector and project a very tight circular beam with extremely high intensity and beautiful quality. Luminus new SBT-‐70 round LED has enabled us to reach a new level of performance.”
Chuck DeMilo, Global Director of Product Marketing at Luminus, added, “The tactical flashlight market is only one of many applications that will benefit from this patented Luminus innovation. We see the new round LED as a great fit in entertainment lighting, medical illumination, and a host of other applications with optically complex architectures.”
Luminus will be exhibiting in booth #2945, May 9-‐11, at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. For more information on how Luminus is enabling the conversion of today’s illumination systems to LED, visit www.luminus.com.
