Let's learn and learn about the design of secondary optics in LightTools. For example, we chose to optimize the LED light source to improve the energy utilization at a small angle. The LED light source chooses Luxeon Star LED. The goal is to design a lens to achieve the total output energy of the LED by Â±5Â° on the shaft. % or higher.

Generally, at the beginning of the design, we will draft a design framework, which will help us to clarify our design ideas and design goals. The following figure is the overall flow chart of our design:
Figure 2: Design ideas
1. Import the real LED light source model, carefully check the model and clear the model reference coordinate position.
Figure 3: LED model
2. After the model check is completed, add the far-field receiver and surface receiver, and trace the appropriate light to simulate the light source. Observe the distribution of the system when the bare LED is used. This is the second step in the previous frame diagram: Analysis of the starting point. We can only determine what we should do next if we have a clear starting point.
Action: Add the surface receiver to the Z=20mm position; then right click on the view space and select the far field receiver; then turn on the two receiver properties and make sure the unit of measure is the luminous flux. Finally, return to the menu bar and select Ray Trace > Simulation Input... Trace 25,000 rays in the forward trace and display 100 rays, run the simulation, and click the â€œBegin Simulationâ€ button.

3. After tracking the light, we will start to analyze. View the illuminance simulation from the surface receiver separately; view the intensity simulation from the far field receiver. As can be seen from the intensity distribution map, the center of the LED light source is very weak and splits towards Â±30Â°, and our design goal is 40% energy within Â±5Â°, so we have to find a way to Â±30Â° The light is concentrated to within Â±5Â°.
Operation: In the Analysis menu, open Illuminance Display > LumViewer; in the Analysis menu, open Intensity Display > Slice Chart; right click in the system navigation or 3D view and select "Properties" to view the detailed parameters.

4. From the above simulation results, we have found that the â€œbat-likeâ€ distribution is not the distribution we want, then we have to find a way to change the LED light distribution using the principle of secondary optics. We intend to use total reflection or specular reflection to reduce the luminescence energy above Â±30Â° and then use refraction to improve the luminescence energy less than Â±30Â°. Reflection or total reflection can be achieved with a reflective bowl, refraction we can use a small lens to achieve, and then combine the two, this is our design ideas.
Operation: first create a lens, place the lens in the Z = 15mm position, and modify the lens shape to a quadric; create a SkinSolid entity (skin), place it in the Z = -0.5mm position, and set The SkinSolid solid material is PMMA; then a cylinder is created with the SkinSolid entity for Boolean operations, and a cylindrical space of approximately the size of the LED CoverLens is dug out from the SkinSolid entity; finally the lens and the SkinSolid entity are combined.

5. Once the combined model is created, we can verify the effect of this combined lens, using NS non-sequential ray optimization lenses, which we covered in our previous article on optimization, which is not covered here.
Why we need a battery tester?
A car battery dies, you replace or charge it, but it is hard to know when the battery is going to die. This 12 volt digital battery tester gives you the information about the life of your batteries, instead of guessing, or vaguely remembering. It also allows you to test a battery to see if the problem is the battery or your charging system before spending money for replacing parts unnecessarily.
Battery Tester Results:
GOOD BATTERY: The battery is in good condition.
GOOD-RECHARGE: The battery is in good condition but low current. Fully charge the battery and return it to service.
CHARGE & RETEST: Fully charge the battery and retest. Failure to fully charge the battery before testing may result in inaccurate results. If you still get CHARGE & RETEST message after you fully charge the battery, replace it.
REPLACE BATTERY: The battery is almost dead or the connection between the battery and battery cable is poor. Replace the battery and retest; or disconnect the battery cables and retest the battery using the out-of-vehicle test before replacing it.
BAD CELL-REPLACE: The battery may be damaged such as broken cell or short circuit. Replace the battery and retest
