Fiber Optic Lighting
Fiber optic lighting operates through a remotely located light source wherein light is focused into a harness of fiber optic cable to produce an end or side lighting effect. The system typically consists of a light source, common end, fiber optic harness and end fixture.
There are 2 types of fiber optic lighting applications, side lighting and end lighting.
With a side lighting project, the light emitted through the side wall of a single multi strand cable to produce a perimeter high light glow, or a glow effect if concealed within a cove. This technique is a much better option to neon lighting when used commercially as there are no high voltages creating magnetic fiends which can play havoc with LV electrical systems, longer continuous runs can be achieved, the option of colour change and programming is available and the maintenance costs are considerably lower in comparison.
With an end lighting project, the light travels down a single multi strand cable or through a fiber optic harness made up of multiple single strands and is emitted from the end of the fiber to produce the desired effect, which may be the illumination of water in a pool or pond, the illumination of the water around the hull of a superyacht, the lighting of museum pieces, or the twinkle of light upon a ceiling or wall imitating a starry night. This application should not involve the fiber optic harness being any longer than 11m max, as cable lengths longer than this will result in light depreciation.
