To address machine to human communication, in which light is transferred from LED to the human eye to convey a message, Bivar points to its comprehensive family of flexible light pipes and panel mount assemblies. A leading specialty provider of LED indication products, Bivar offers a variety of off-the-shelf and custom solutions to efficiently move light to the front panel in any number of consumer or industrial end-products. Target markets include security, medical, computing, transportation and communication.
Bringing flexibility to designers, Bivar’s indication products take into account a number of key considerations including the distance from LED source to panel, size and brightness, type of material best suited to the application, and indoor versus outdoor conditions. To address tough outdoor conditions, Bivar’s new series of IP67 rated panel mount assemblies and flexible light pipes are totally protected against dust and immersion up to 1m.
“We take great pride in working with our customers to understand their needs and provide them with fail-safe solutions that are both practical and cost-effective,” said Tom Silber, Bivar president and CEO. “From metal to nylon to IP67 rated products that can withstand rugged conditions, our comprehensive family of flexible light pipes and panel mount assemblies can satisfy even the most difficult design challenge and can be used in just about any application.”
Bivar’s flexible light pipe family makes routing light through crowded or tight spaces easy and efficient. They are suited for a range of applications, including accent and trim lighting for commercial buildings, commercial aircraft and rail cars; panel and cabinet illumination in industrial environments; automotive ambient lighting and contour illumination; wall wash, alcove and back lighting in architectural environments; and signage and advertisement lighting. The flexible light pipes are available in standard nylon, quick mount flexible nylon and IP67 rated metal.

The L700, used in conjunction with the Endolume, enables biomedical engineers and technicians to test endoscope components in the service laboratory in place of the OR endoscopic light source for testing light guides and endoscope optical fibers.
“Endoscopic components are used and sterilized frequently, which can impact quality over time,” said Mark Waite, Lighthouse Imaging CEO, in the release. “They need to be tested more frequently, in part to avoid wasting time and creating issues during patient procedures. Lighthouse Imaging’s new light source complements our line of endoscopic testing equipment, and makes it easy and affordable to test light guides and scope fibers in the lab rather than in the operating room.”
