Fiber optic lighting for membrane switches offer many benefits over other lighting solutions such as Electroluminence (EL) or using discrete LEDs. Fiber optics have longer life than EL. It also allows you to uniformily illuminate a larger area with fewer LEDs. They are more durable and well suited for rugged applications.
Optical fibers offer many other unique benefits:
As thin as 0.20 mm for superior tactile response
Bright, Efficent, Low Power
Easy to protoype, Low-Cost, No tooling required
We offer plug-and-play backlighting solutions integrating the light guide, surface-mount LED's, drive circuitry, connectors, reflectors, diffusers, and mounting assemblies. All engineered into one, thin backlighting assembly.
You can easily customize and adapt backlighting solutions to your application by adding any number of enhancements that we offer. Some of these options include:
Lumitex Value Added Services (L-VAS) provides detailed engineering and design support from concept to production for your application.
Working with Lumitex’s engineering team we will prepare a detailed proposal for your evaluation and approval. We draw insight from our significant experience in optical design and backlighting.
