Date Announced: 11 Oct 2012
Reading, MA - Fraen Corporation (Business Wire) – Fraen Corporation’s Optics Division announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued U.S. Patent 8,118,451 entitled “Reflective Variable Spot Size Lighting Devices and Systems”. The system, also known as FOCOS (FOCusing Optical System) consists of two reflectors which narrows the beam spread through extension of the outer reflector away from the light source. FOCOS technology has been developed for both narrow beam applications requiring a long throw of light, and up close, wide beam viewing, which requires uniform useable light. Fraen is offering samples of its latest FOCOS technology for the Cree XPE and Luxeon Rebel LEDs to interested customers developing products that require both a narrow beam and a wide beam illumination pattern.
“Since Its introduction, the FOCOS technology has proven to be very popular within the Portable Lighting and General Illumination markets.” said David Cohen, Executive Vice President of Fraen. “ We are pleased to add the FOCOS technology to our growing patent portfolio and to expand the applications of this technology. Fraen continues to strive to bring innovative technology to the market place and help our customers achieve world class light output.”
