Our Technology

We have a distinguished history of cutting-edge, innovative design and execution working with both start-ups and Fortune 500 companies.

Our Design Process

Experience says it all.

We focus on:

  • Meeting customer’s needs and expectations

  • Innovative, high performance, reliable and efficient design

  • Minimizing BOM and manufacturing costs

  • Cost effectiveness

We use the latest modeling software for:

  • Illumination design, analysis, and optimization

  • Imaging and non-imaging optics design

  • LED drive and control circuit design

  • Optical and opto-mechanical design

Collection Optics

Patented and proprietary optics are what sets our products apart from other light engines.

We have worked closely with manufacturers to select and develop the right materials for our optics. Our lenses are expertly engineered for targeted output creating the most intense, directed light on the market. Additionally, we have the expertise to design a custom lens solution.

  • Engineered for maximum output
  • patented and proprietary
  • Highest optical grade
  • Polycarbonate
  • Acrylic
  • Fused silica
  • Glass

Optical Design, Modeling, and Analysis

The company has a long and world recognized history of optical engineering excellence, bringing over 30 years of experience to the design, modeling, analysis and manufacture of optical systems. We have designed and developed optical systems with from one to nearly one hundred individual optical components to meet and exceed customer’s unique design and manufacturing challenges.

The company has been recognized for excellence in innovation, design and development for three different products in the past two years by SPIE and Photonics Spectra having been selected as Finalists for the prestigious Prism Awards. This is an achievement that few companies in the world have been able to accomplish.

Non-sequential Monte Carlo simulation based software, such as ZEMAX, are used as optical design and modeling tools. Our company’s unique experience combines expertise in both imaging and non-imaging systems, setting us apart from many others when combined with our excellence in mechanical, electrical, and systems engineering design, development, and manufacturing.

Mechanical Engineering and Design

Electrical Engineering and Design

Over the past several years customers have expressed significant interest in purchasing complete turn-key LED solutions of which the drive and control electronics represents a critical component. In response, we have made a commitment to our customers by using ALTIUM (electrical design & layout) to develop compact, efficient, and cost effective LED drivers and controllers incorporating power supplies, microcontrollers, and fast, high current sources with both Ethernet and USB interfaces with product specific offerings across all product lines.
