UV / IR Cut Off Filters

KUPO Optics provides UV/IR blocking filters that effectively block both UV and IR sources, and transmit averagely 96% of visible light.
Near infrared (IR)is the major attributor of heat. Some components will be damaged when exposed to the heat continuously. For example, in the projection system, the heat from light source will burn down filters. By adding a UV/IR filter in between, the heat will be reflected backward to the light source to protect dichroic filters in front.
Ultraviolet (UV), on the other hand, contains large amount of energy. Because of this characteristic, some components will be damaged by UV as well. In order to protect those components, placing a filter that blocks UV will be an effective yet economic solution.
