Industry First LED Light Pipe to Maintain Maximum Brightness Across Wide Viewing Angle
IRVINE, Calif. - Dec. 11, 2001- BivarOpto, the Bivar Optoelectronics Division of Bivar, Inc., has introduced a unique LED light pipe assembly designed to maintain maximum brightness across a wider range of viewing angles, regardless of indicator/viewer relationship. The light pipe's advanced light focusing technology allows the LED's full captured intensity to be seen from further distances and more varied angles than conventional lens styles.
"To our knowledge, this is truly a unique product," said Anthony Vilgiate, Bivar Vice President Strategic Business Development. "It's like looking at a portrait, where the eyes follow you. We can create an aesthetic advantage that has never been seen in commercial or industrial applications. Designers have more freedom than ever to innovate which is key to staying ahead of their competitors."
Comprised of a new wide angle lens and flexible light pipe, the FLP-O Series features an oval shaped lens cap assembly in both through-hole and surface mount configurations. The visible area of the oval lens cap assembly measures 0.125" (3.17mm) in width and 0.250" (6.3mm) in length and has a recommended mounting footprint of 0.114" (2.90mm) x 0.224" (5.69mm) ±.002" (0.105mm). The device's small form factor and enhanced viewing angle lends itself to the miniature display requirements of emerging CompactPCITm applications in industrial control, automotive, medical, datacom/telecom, and mobile electronics applications.
The FLP-O light pipe assembly incorporates patented technologies which provides the capability for extending the LED lighting to display and indicator panels up to 328.0 feet (100M)
away and utilizes Bivar's patented bonding technology to secure the flexible light pipe tubing to the lens assembly.
The FLP-O Series is offered in a wide selection of colors including Super bright colors in Red, Green, Blue, Yellow and Amber; Ultra-bright colors in White, Blue, Turquoise and Green,
Yellow and High Efficiency Red with custom colors available on request.
Immediately available from stock, typical pricing in production quantities is less than $1.50 each.
