High-Power Light Engines

The Enfis QUATTRO Mini from AMS Technologies (Martinsreid, Germany) provides a very high-power spot source with up to 160W of power in a 2 × 2 cm array. The RGBA version with additional amber LED chip offers an extra-large color gamut versus conventional RGB color mixing technology. The RGBW model provides RGB color mixing with the addition of a white channel for higher maximum lumen capability. The Hi-CRI Vari-CCT version is a high quality light source with a range of correlated color temperatures (CCTs) from 3000 K to 6500 K.

Ruggedized Lenses

Resolve Optics Ltd (Chesham, UK) has produced ruggedized lenses to meet specified environmental tests such as Def Stan 00-35, which includes vibration, shock, and bump testing over a temperature range of -40° to +70° C. Lens optical coatings can be applied to meet a range of MIL Spec standards (including MIL-C-14806, MIL-C-675, MIL-M-13508) to ensure the coatings do not craze, peel, or succumb to fungal attack. To minimize the risk of condensation, the lenses are assembled in a dry nitrogen atmosphere.
