COVID-19: Message from our Australian factory headquarters.

We hope this message finds you in good health during these challenging times. Our team is closely monitoring current events with our partners and customers and we wish to update you with some good news regarding the current status of our operations...

We are happy to advise that our manufacturing operations are currently continuing at full capacity. This includes normal lead times and supply of all LED Puck, aquaculture lighting and medical lighting products.

Being a local Australian manufacturer, Planet Lighting is fortunate enough to provide urgent supply of world-class and Australian made medical lights. Please be in touch if your practice or hospital requires urgent supply of specialised medical lighting.

We will continue to update you should there be any foreseen changes to the status of our operations. In the meantime, we encourage all to take care and to support one another.

The Team at Planet Lighting

Right from its earliest days, RIMSA has always had a clear goal: to satisfy surgeons’ needs. RIMSA is fully aware that the key to meeting this goal is INNOVATION.

Cutting-edge solutions designed by our engineers combine revolutionary new technology with consolidated concepts, such as WHITE LIGHT and INDIRECT LIGHT, as used in the RIMSA Pentaled series. Designers of the world’s first scialytic lamp using LED technology (patented in September 2002), RIMSA now applies the experience it has gained over the yearsto its new PENTALED E-Series. E-Series (Pentaled81, Pentaled105 and Pentaled30E) is a highly innovative and superior performance line of scialytic lamps and is a natural evolution of the acclaimed PENTALED series. RIMSA remains true to its origins, over seventy years later: the first, the only and the most original when it comes to bright new ideas

Proper lighting makes for comfortable working conditions,reduces stress levels, minimises the feeling of tiredness and increases productivity. The quality of artificial lighting is of the utmost importance and is directly proportional to the difficulty of the tasks required of us. The most important factor when considering artificial light is the colour rendering index (CRI). This is an index that measures the capacity of a light source to reproduce the true colours of the illuminated object faithfully. A CRI value of 85 or more is normally held to be high and indicates that the light source has good colour rendering properties. This value has been studied by the CIE (International Commission on Illumination) and is the minimum requirement for surgical lamps in the relevant International Electrotechnical Commission standard (IEC 60601-2-41). It is obtained from the average of eight different colours (R1 to R8), given that the human eye is not as sensitive to all the various wavelengths in the same way.

E-White – natural white light

Nature has always inspired man’s every discovery! The sun is the light source par excellence and its rays emit monochromatic light, i.e. identical colour. Using this as a starting point, RIMSA has designed lamps that use only white light LEDs to avoid the risk of surgeons perceiving variations in the colour temperature (°K) within the operating field and to prevent unnecessary coloured shadows.

E-Comfort – indirect light

The use of indirect light ensures:

  • 3D illumination of the operating field
  • elimination of shadows
  • no glare

The indirect light provided by all Pentaled lamps guarantees cold light, depth and no stress or glare for the surgeon. This is due to especially calculated parabolic dishes that reflect the entire spectrum of light emitted by each LED lamp in a punctiform manner, without dispersion. This means that fewer LEDs are needed and less irradiated heat in the operating field. As a reuslt, the surgeon and his/her assistants are never disturbed by the light and can operate without stress to the eyes and, most importantly, without glare.

E-view – extended view lens

E-View is an innovative lens that lets the surgeon expand/narrow the illuminated operating field electronically, without altering the intensity of the light at the centre of the field (Ec). Adjustment of the luminous field is one of the priority requirements of a surgeon’s lamp.
