    Plastic TIR optics

    posted by Korkonen on 04/04/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Plastic optics based on total internal reflection (TIR). The overall quality is ok, fairly efficient collimation of light from a power LED to a narrow beam. As a plastic optic the LED connections can not be accidentally short circuited as is possible with s...
    Cons:
    Max outer diameter of 21mm is a bit large for some milling taps that I have, a bit less than 20mm would have been perfect for m...

    acrylic collimator optic.

    posted by lasermanathome on 12/24/2012 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The nice thing of these kind of optics is the high percentage of transducing light into a beam wich has a divergence comparable of a wideangle laser. Expecially with R2 leds, it is difficult to beat the divergence, even recoil led flashlight included. Can e...
    Cons:
    Don't scratch them, handle with care. They CAN NOT transport heat, so the cooling of the led must be provided otherwise. Alumin...

    Great Lens

    posted by steve000 on 05/20/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    These are great they really focus the LED and take away the flood. Id say the beam is around 5 degrees maybe 10degs. less than a normal LED at same distance.
    Cons:
    There is a lot of light being lost around the sides, id recommend coating the sides in reflective paint of possible, such as ch...
