Using its Recycling Light Technology (RTL), Wavien Inc. recently unveiled an ultra-bright LED fibre optic illuminators designed for architectural and signage applications. The new system combines the RTL technology's enhanced brightness with the long lifetime of LED technology.

This combination overcomes past obstacles to fibre optic signage and architectural applications, which were hampered by the short lifetime of arc lamp illuminators and insufficient brightness of LED illuminators. The company's new illuminator can support both 3M single core fibre and Schott multi-fibre bundles, allowing the RLT system to replace neon-based signs currently used in a wide variety of side-firing applications.

The RLT technology greatly improves brightness to LEDs with full red, green, blue and white colour capability. Using a 4-colour LED package allows the light output to be digitally control and produce unlimited colour variations. This multi-colour capability is not available in traditional neon signs and will provide a new dimension in a broad variety of signage and architectural applications.

Traditional light collection optics platforms do not increase LED brightness and as a result, are not efficient for projection. The basis of Wavien's RLT technology is a very low-cost recycling collar optical component that captures the wasted light in conventional optics designs, recycles the light and redirects it back into the output beam allowing increased efficiency, while reducing the power consumption.
