Longer Life - Durable fiber optic panel never needs replacement. Remote light source offers 10,000 to 100,000 hours life and easy replacement.
Lower Power - Sources require less power than EL, CCFL, or LED Array and no inverter. As low as 10-20mA at 2vdc.
Compact Size - Panels are thin and sources are smaller than EL or CCFL inverters.Heat/EMI Free - Fiber optic panel adds no heat or EMI to interfere with switch operation.
Durable - Optical Fibers are not affected by extremes in humidity (0% to 100%) and temperature (-40 to +85 deg C).
Very Low Startup Costs - Minimal Engineering charge and usually no tooling. Low prototyping cost with no minimums.
Design Flexibility - Fiber Optic technology allows designers to solve unique problems.
Thin, Low Profile - Typical construction is 0.068 inches thick (1.7 mm). Thinner constructions are available.
Reduced Assembly and Maintenance - Simply apply panel in between circuit board and LCD glass. Fiber Optic panel doesn't need replacing. Long life light sources are easily replaceable.
