New service in the OSRAM ‘LED Light for you’ (LLFY) network, the right lens is a mouse click away

‘LED Light for you’, the OSRAM Opto Semiconductors network that focuses on LEDs and their applications, now offers a new service in the form of an Optical Selection Tool. This is a database containing 350 different lens types from seven of the world’s largest lens manufacturers. It provides comprehensive information so the right lenses can be selected for each particular application.



Lenses play an important role in LED lighting. Depending on the application, they can focus light in the desired direction or create a precise spread of light, for example in street lighting. Integrated lenses are one way of achieving an appropriate emission characteristic. Secondary lenses however offer even greater flexibility because they can be adapted to suit the application.

The ‘LED Light for you’ network now makes it even easier to find the right lens for a specific luminaire design. The Optical Selection Tool is essentially a huge database that contains all the information you need to select the right lens. For example it includes high-quality information on which lenses are suitable for which LEDs, how many LEDs can be placed behind external optics and the materials, diameters and beam angles of the lenses. Some network partners offer additional simulation data for the lens characteristics on the LLFY website. This data is available for download. Links to the manufacturers are also provided so that further details can be obtained.

“This tool gives luminaire designers a broad information base that is easy to use and will help you quickly find the right lens for your application”, said Sebastian Lyschick, the man responsible for the network at OSRAM Opto Semiconductors. “All the important data is just a click away, including the manufacturers – all famous names in the industry and all certified ‘LED Light for you’ partners of course.”
