Providing a means for engineers to create high-performance optics at volume quantities, a novel replication process transfers the profile of a precision optical surface from a master, creating an exact duplicate on a variety of substrates. The process can produce a wide range of both ruled and holographic diffraction gratings, reflective and transmission holographic optical elements, and dual wavelength gratings, as well plano and conic sections. Diffraction gratings are produced in sizes up to 110mm x 110mm with groove densities from 40 g/mm to 3600 g/mm, with available wavelengths from
Combining solid-state electronics with on-site, remote, and aggregate Web-based controls, the IEPC Vari-Ballast Control provides dynamic real time lighting/energy control for HID, Incandescent, Fluorescent, CCFL, and LED lighting, enabling remote mixed-system whole-building lighting control indoors and out. The device includes a user-modifiable program which monitors lumen depreciation, light output
Designed and built to meet the ruggedized requirements of MIL-PRF-27 for high-reliability aerospace and military systems, Beta Transformer's EE12.7 switchmode transformer can deliver 6 W at 100 kHz.
