Optical Fiber Panels feature white LEDs.
Architectural & Civil Engineering Products

Optical Fiber Panels feature white LEDs.

Equipped with true white backlight, UniGloÂ-® OptimaÂ-® panels offers brightness as high as 75 ft-L, depending on panel size and configuration. They require no inverter and generate no heat or EMI. Power consumption is typically 3.6 V, 20-30 mA, with operating temperature of -40 to +85Â-ºC. With thin profile of 0.013 in., panels can be placed between elastomeric keypad or overlay and...

Modular Light Engines utilize LEDs and fiber optic panels.
Mechanical Power Transmission

Modular Light Engines utilize LEDs and fiber optic panels.

LED Light Engines combine one or more high-brightness LEDs with LumitexÂ-® woven or UniGloÂ-® fiber optic panel to spread light source over wide, flat area. Collimating lens captures and focuses light from LED(s) to fiber optic panel. Encased in aluminum housing, assembly achieves typical brightness of 100 Ft-L or more for 3 x 5 in. fiber optic panel illuminated by one LED. LuxeonÂ-®...

Backlighting Panels feature membrane switch conductive pad.
Architectural & Civil Engineering Products

Backlighting Panels feature membrane switch conductive pad.

Fiber Optic Backlighting Panels, utilizing as few as one 3 or 5 mm LED light source, permit low power consumption of 10-25 mA and long life up to 100,000 hr. They have zero impact on tactile feel of elastomeric keys. Conductive pads are printed onto underside of fiber optic panel and, when integrated with rubber keypads or membrane switch overlays, function as switch. Design provides direct path...
