VEGA45V produces a 50° beam
Called Vega, they follow on from its 45mm LLC59 colimators.
Like LLC59, Vega collimators will be available in PMMA plastic, but also in polycarbonate.
There are eight beam options, some of them compatible with colour mixing or tunable white use.
Compatibility is said to be full for CoBs up to 6mm in diameter, then “partial” from there to 9mm.
VEGA45U ultra narrow, 8.5° beam
VEGA45UF ultra narrow frosted, 9° beam
VEGA45N narrow, 9° beam
VEGA45C colour, 11° beam
VEGA45M medium, 25° beam
VEGA45W wide, 34° beam
VEGA45V very large, 50° beam
VEGA45E elliptical, 9-33° beam
From the ‘colour’ version downwards, all are suitable for tuneable-white, RGBW and dim-to-warm applications. Beam angles are FWHM (full width half max, so 34° is ±17°) measured with PMMA collimators using a 6mm emitter Citizen CLU7S3. The very large beam type is in the pipeline.
