This lens uses plano convex lens technology to collimate the Maxa Beam’s beam of light and redirect the spill light back into the beam. This results in an even field of view free from any dark spots. The effects of this lens differ from those of the MBA-3000 Diffusion Filter because the collimating lens is focusing the excess light inward rather than diffusing the light outward.
The Collimating Lens is useful for applications where the searchlight will be used in flood mode (beam widths greater than 20 degrees). The Lens automatically includes the MBA-3075 Stacking Filter Adapter, meaning that other Maxa Beam filters may be “stacked” on top of it for combined use.
