Light data computer simulations help determine the exact shape and positioning of reflectors and other optical components in our luminaires.
Computer simulations are programs that attempt to simulate an abstract model of a particular system or product. Computer simulations have become a useful part of mathematical modeling of many natural systems in physics, chemistry, economics and engineering. They are utilized to explore and gain new insights into new technology, and to estimate the performance of the components of a new product while in the early planning stages.
The importance of optics
When developing a new luminaire, the careful calculation of reflectors and diffusers are essential for the product's efficacy, i.e. how much light is coming out of the luminaire in relation to the total power consumption. Light data simulations help us determine the best solutions in developing the most energy-efficient solutions.
A great many of our lighting products are available with a choice of diffusers, for various purposes, made of materials such as opal or microprismatic acrylic, glass or aluminum. Light data computer simulations allow us to predetermine the effect of various diffusers while the luminaire is still on the drawing board.
