Wavien Inc. and WattWorks Inc. announce the introduction of a LED Point Light, designed and manufactured by WattWorks, using Wavien’s proprietary LED Recycling Technology for Visual Inspection Applications.
Wavien’s RLT technology allows narrow, high intensity beams to be generated. The recycling of light allows the otherwise wasted light to be directed toward the target, increasing the intensity. This technology has been applied to spot lights, flashlight, and projector applications. The application of the RLT technology to the Point Light product made by WattWorks provides very impressive performance compared to previously available products.
“Wavien’s LED light recycling technology offers outstanding brightness by recovering high angle light from the LED that is normally wasted with traditional LED coupling systems,” stated Dr. Kenneth Li, President and CEO of Wavien, Inc., who is also the inventor of the recycling technology. Dr. Li added: “This unique design enables LED-based products to be able to increase total brightness by over 80%. This performance improvement is provided by adding a reflector with an aperture to the standard LED package. The diameter of the opening, which determines the amount of recycling, can be scaled to meet the user’s needs,” stated Dr. Li.
One of the plant engineers from a customer of WattWorks stated that, “The folks here at the Bellefontaine plant seem to be very impressed on how well LED technology (Wavien’s RLT technology) works for our application. In fact it is a win-win in all aspects compared to the old generation of point lights. I want to say thanks again to you and all involved, for their diligent work in the development to final product.” George Anderson, CEO of WattWorks, Inc., added, “The Wavien RLT reflecting collar, when added to the Luminus single chip high brightness LED, resulted in sufficient intensity for the application that we could not quite achieve with the LED alone. Together, the solution is superior in several ways to the arc lamps previously used for quality control inspections in the production line environment where variable intensity and rapid on/off controls are important. Reduced energy consumption is a bonus.”
