ANSYS Speos

ANSYS SPEOS

ANSYS SPEOS upgrades predictive illumination and optical performance of systems to save on prototyping time and costs and improves your product’s efficiency.

To design and optimize your optical system easily and quickly, SPEOS combines lighting performance modeling with extensive dedicated libraries and optimizer capabilities. SPEOS allows you to study and consider the interactions of photons with mechanical geometries, to quickly create a functional illumination system for your product. SPEOS offers extensive métier-oriented features, such as optical part design, optical sensors test, HUD design and analysis and infrared modeling.

To validate your system and match your performance criteria, SPEOS combines powerful light analysis capabilities with illumination evaluation from UV to near infrared.

To see the final aspect of your product integrated into a whole system and environment, SPEOS provides a high-fidelity visualization of the final result, based on unique human vision capabilities. You can deploy these visualizations in VR to live a fully immersive review experience and make the most comprehensive design decisions.

It is the only product that offers a comprehensive approach for your optical simulation.

Designing and optimizing your system

ANSYS SPEOS provides a unique solution for optical design within a PLM/CAD environment, enabling non-experts to perform illumination design. Turn on the light in your CAD mechanical mock-up and intuitively explore the propagation of light in 3D.

ALMECO

ALMECO

ANSYS SPEOS provides ALMECO with highly-realistic visualizations of its aluminum reflectors, used for a full experience in virtual reality. ALMECO’s Engineering department was able to quickly explore several use cases, and to get a precise idea of the aspect and effect of the reflector’s capacities in its final environment, in life-like conditions. This new evaluation process cuts production time thanks to early decision-making in the design process and improves and customizes the product to truly meet the customer’s needs.
