Carclo introduces optics for new Cree XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs


Carclo Technical Plastics has announced the immediate availability of a wide range of high performance polycarbonate optics to manage the light output from the new Cree XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs.

These new optics are available immediately in 10mm square “small footprint” optics, and soon in standard 20mm and 26.5mm diameter sizes, in both a clear and a frosted finish.

The 10mm optics feature a clear medium beam with a FWHM (Full Width Half Maximum) beam angle of 16.4 degrees, an elliptical or “line” optic with a 43x16 degree beam, as well as Carclo-exclusive frosted optics in medium (18 degrees FWHM) and wide (26 degrees FWHM) beams. Carclo 10mm “small footprint” optics do not require a separate holder, and can easily be grouped together in square, rectangular or linear multi-LED arrays.

Carclo has also announced the immediate availability of a 20mm side-emitting optic for the Cree XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs, with an industry-leading 5 degree beam angle around a full 360 degrees, and efficiencies approaching 90%. Finally, 20mm and 26.5mm optics for the new Cree XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs will soon be available in narrow, medium and wide beam angles, in both clear and Carclo-exclusive frosted optics, as well as elliptical and elliptical orthogonal line optics.

Ian Bryant, Business Development Manager for Carclo’s UK optics business, said: “Cree XLamp® XP-E and XP-C LEDs have been developed by Cree for lighting-class performance in a small-footprint, low-profile LED package, and to give LED lighting designers enhanced flexibility and performance to further accelerate the LED lighting revolution. We are delighted to be able to offer a line of optics to coincide with the launch of these new LEDs.”
