Light guides from polyscale allow new approaches in regards of performance, design, efficiency and flexibility for light guide applications.
Microstructured plastic plates are used as light guiding elements. Light input is provided via LEDs which are placed on the edge of the plate. The light is sent through the plate and the structures break the light so that it leaves the light guide to give a uniform shining surface. The advantages of the edge lit technology result in increased efficiency, thinner light sources and lower operating costs.
Polyscale widens the opportunities through a variety of structure types and their appearance and combination. Thus an optimization arises in regards of:
- targeted light emission an minimized loss of divergence
- minimized thickness of the light guide
- increased uniformity of the light distribution
- increased efficiency and efficacy
Optimized structural and optical design can be reached by ultra precision tools. Additionally the structures are hardly visible for the human eye which gives a uniform appearance without a diffusor layer which increases the efficacy by much.
The luminous intensity can be maximized via defined ray angles without an additional brightness enhancement film.
This provides attractive alternatives to state of the art solutions based on edgelit technology. Especially for new applications now solutions are possible and feasible. The products match highest demands and provide new opportunities for design oriented solutions in combination with highest performance parameters and energy efficiency.
