Evolucia Inc. has been awarded a patent for its Aimed Optics LED lighting design, the core of the company’s product line.
Published on Jan. 21, 2014, Patent No. 8,635,049 was awarded for a “Light unit with light output pattern synthesized from multiple light sources.”
“In other words, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line,” says Evolucia CEO and Chairman Mel Interiano. “Our patented Aimed Optics technology simply uses that principle to its fullest. We don’t need to redirect the light path with optics, which creates inefficiencies. We aim the LEDs exactly where we want the light to shine, which uses less energy to create more light—a key point recognized in the patent.”
In addition to the patent, Evolucia’s Aimed Optics platform was included in a report that documents an 18-month long, independent U.S. Government study that was sponsored by the Department of Energy (DOE). In that study, data was collected on the energy efficiency of the LED lights, and the data showed that Evolucia’s first generation Aimed Optics solution ranked among the highest in the study for energy efficiency.
